It is often the case that retail customers require data centre colocation, which allows them to rent facility space, equipment, and bandwidth at a lower cost than would be the case were they to own independent data centres.
Colocation data centres offer shared electricity, physical security, cooling systems, networking equipment and storage – while connecting retail customers with a range of network service providers and telecommunications.
Benefits of Colocation Centres:
- Access to data centre assets that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive
- Security, power, cooling and maintenance expenses are shared across a large group of retail customers
- Lowered cost and complexity to the individual retail customer
