Colocation Data Center
A colocation datacenter is an “off-premise” datacenter, in which there are shared tenants sharing the redundant backup generators, HVAC, etc. These colocations datacenters can be very local or completely across the country. Stablenet offers the private cloud option for colocation clients. Depending on how much operational control you want, technical requirements, structure or the preferences of any third party manager, a colocation datacenter can be a great solution. Hardware and software are housed either on your hardware, a shared colocation computing/storage resource within the datacenter or on unshared computing/storage resource in the datacenter.
Some clients see a colocation datacenter as the “next step up” from individual, on-premise enterprise datacenters—while others prefer to use both individual and colocation datacenter approaches.
“Strategic Power Systems, Inc. (SPS) works with customers around the world require that our network and systems are accessible 24×7 and that our customers have access to our ORAP® system when they need it.
Stablenet provides SPS with the confidence that our network infrastructure is supported so that we can focus on delivering on our core competencies. We have found the Stablenet staff to be professional, technically outstanding and very responsive to our needs.”
Lower CAPEX (capital expenditure) for the datacenter provider, since there is shared redundant energy, backup generators and HVAC services
Expenditures are fairly predictable and increase consistently as clients’ demands increase
Flexibility is often available (dependent on datacenter growth)
Expansion can happen rapidly for rack, facility or cage agility
Startup time is “on demand,” so colocation datacenters are up and running rather quickly
More choices for network connectivity since providers are “bidding” for business, and most carrier resources are on-net at the larger, more prevalent colocation datacenters
Prime power uptime, translating into greater uptime of the systems and applications
More redundant power
The Importance of Sharing
Within colocation, or “shared” environments, it’s important to decide whether public, private or hybrid cloud is best for you. The degree of network security ownership is dependent on the public vs. private structure. Larger colocation facilities allow replication of data systems and applications to other adjoining datacenters in disparate geographical locations to aid the increased uptime for catastrophic circumstances due to weather or human complications.
