Colocation Services

What is Colocation?

Colocation or "colo" is the practice of renting space from a third party datacenter to host your servers or other computing devices. In a colocation setting, businesses are provided with networking, physical security, redundant power and redundant cooling. We have a strong partnership with both local Chicago datacenters, the continental U.S and abroad. If looking for Private Cages, Full Rack/Cabinet, Half Rack or single server colocation, we can help. We get involved from the hardware shipping or procurement process to the time your servers are connected and online.

Network Services

If moving your services to a Datacenter is not an option for your company, we can still help with getting a dedicated private connectivity to your office(s). This is a Direct Internet Access (DIA) coming directly from our providers with connection speed ranging from as low as 50 mbps to up to 150 Gbps. We currently offer:

- IP TRANSIT SERVICES

Traffic from an ISP or customer network to the Transit Provider Network.

- POINT TO POINT CONNECTION

Uninterrupted direct connection between your on premise infrastructure and datacenter.

- CLOUD CONNECT

Direct private connection to your cloud provider : AWS, GOOGLE CLOUD or AZURE

Disaster Recovery Services

Many of our clients choose to create a disaster recovery location away from their on-premise devices. You can have a mirrored environment of your current infrastructure at a distant datacenter. In the event of a disaster, your business can rely on the DR location. It makes no sense to have both your production and DR environment at the same location. With proper disaster recovery planning, organizations can put in place a cost-effective solution to properly reduce downtime. Since data is not always housed in a single facility or provider, the complexity of DR can be difficult to navigate. Our team of Disaster Recovery experts is happy to assist. Get in touch!

Available Colocation Space

Private Cage, Full Rack, Half Rack or single server Colocation available.

Private Cage / Suite

Choosing private cage data center colocation ensures that the highest level of security protects your resources. Only IT professionals from within your organization and technicians at the data center in question will be able to access those private cages - no other client will have access to your valuable equipment. Private suites also provide more flexible cooling options. Instead of taking the needs of multiple clients into consideration, a data center can customize the cooling options for the cages within the suite to the exact specifications that are needed for your servers.

When does Colocation makes sense for an organization?

Owning and operating a Datacenter simply cost millions. Unless you have a strong business case for owning one, most companies choose to colocate (rent space) from providers who have such business model. As result, many of our clients find it cost-effective and secure to outsource. In fact, with an increase for working remote for employees, a centralized environment to host all of your core business applications makes sense. We've compiled few key reasons why colocation would make sense:


1- Your office is not a datacenter :

For optimal performance, your servers and network devices need to have proper cooling,  redundant power and network connectivity. In a datacenter, uptime is set to 99-100% because they offer uninterruptible power supply (UPS), emergency backup generators  and HVAC System to ensure stability & reliability even in the face of natural disasters. Redundancies also allow the colocation provider to perform maintenance without taking a single customer offline.



2- Compliance and Security:

Compliance has become a centerpiece of data planning. In the financial and health care verticals especially, it is exceedingly expensive to maintain compliant in-house data centers. Using a commercial colocation data center facility enables organizations to more easily and cost effectively maintain compliance with ever-changing federal regulations and industry standards. Many colocation facilities adhere to the specific administrative, physical, and technical safeguards set by the HITECH Act and are HIPAA compliant or PCI compliant. Most of these facilities have 24/7/365 in person security, restricted access etc...



3- Disaster Recovery :

Having a primary Datacenter is great, but what are your plans if it goes down?  Colocation facilities allow customers to colocate servers for disaster recovery replication or leverage additional disaster-recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) offerings from the data center provider. We work with our customer to make this a reality.
