Colocation Data Center Solutions
Colocation Services That Scale Alongside Your Business
A colocation data center solution designed by Telapprise and supported by our network of colocation data center providers is optimal for growth-centric businesses and organizations that haven’t yet migrated to the cloud but require a more resilient network architecture. We help you consider all the important factors, including volume and velocity of growth, compliance requirements, and workload types to design and deploy a customized colocation solution for your needs.
Growing your business is a great goal to have, but if your network architecture isn’t set up to keep pace with that growth, it’s time to reevaluate your broader technology strategy. A colocation data center solution from Telapprise and our network of providers delivers scalable network infrastructure that maximizes the value of your budget while providing your business room to grow. We take a vendor-neutral approach to understand what you’re doing, what you’re trying to achieve, and what your growth goals look like to customize a colocation solution around those insights.
The result? A scalable network architecture that mitigates the risks of downtime, is more secure than on-premise servers, and minimizes capital expenditures as your business grows. Plus, our experts have experience working on projects with industry-specific compliance requirements, including HIPAA, FINRA, and PCI DSS standards.
If you’re ready to start planning how much space and power you need for a successful colocation integration, schedule a project assessment and we’ll help you understand how colocation fits into your broader network operations.
On a conceptual level, colocation data center solutions are a relatively straightforward cloud computing model. You’re renting space and power from a data center to house server infrastructure off-site. Why would you do that? For one, those data centers are designed and located to be more resilient than your own building. They’re built in places where the risk of natural disasters is minimal, and the buildings themselves are often designed to withstand catastrophic events to maintain uptime for mission-critical operations.
As a result, a colocation data center is more secure (both in terms of operational and physical security) than an on-premise network. Biometric verification is often required to simply enter a data center, and your equipment is secured in racks and cages are locked and accessible only to your designated personnel, significantly reducing the risk of insider threats. Along with security, colocation delivers improved network performance with peering points, geolocation optimization, and hardened utilities with redundant, self-sustained power and HVAC systems.
Sounds great, right? Now you have to consider what you need. Do you need one rack, a full cage, or possibly even several cages? How frequently will those needs change? If you’re trying to grow your business, on-premise datacenter expansions are costly, time-consuming, and limited in scope. That all changes when you house your datacenter assets out of a colocation data center (or data centers when redundancy is critical).
Without optimized network connectivity, a colocation solution won’t get you far. That’s why Telapprise takes care of both.
