OKiT247’s high availability & high bandwidth solutions, coupled with the state-of-the-art data centres are designed to give businesses everything they need.


How Co-location Hosting Works

In order to establish a colocation hosting arrangement, the customer must have their own physical server – one that they own. The customer isn’t renting a server from the hosting provider; rather, they are merely leasing space like they would at a rental storage company. The customer physically transports the server to the colocation hosting provider’s place of business, typically a data center.

The customer only rents space within the data center or colocation site, but maintains ownership and control of all hardware and software settings for that server. By communicating with the colocation hosting provider’s team, the customer can quickly upgrade or downgrade features like bandwidth and rackspace to fit the business needs.

Co-location Hosting For Security

A top reason most companies employ colocation hosting is for the security it provides. While many former colocation users have made the move to cloud technology because of its ease of use, endless resources, and competitive pricing, there are some things cloud cannot do, according to Who’s Hosting This; primarily, it’s the level of control you have over your server compared to cloud.


Additional Benefits Of Co-location Hosting

With co-location hosting, a small-to-midsized company can achieve a reasonable facsimile of enterprise-level hosting capabilities thanks to the shared hosting environment and on-site support. This can allow your company to play on a fairly even field when it comes to technology, even if it is a fraction of the size of the competition.

High Bandwidth And Low Latency:

Your server is plugged in to the co-location hosting provider’s network, giving it access to industrial-strength connection speeds. Additionally, you can contract with third-party providers like Spectrum or CenturyLink for even more connectivity options.

Unlimited Power:

No hosting situation is 100% free of risk, but you’re transferring the safety of your server from your office to a location built to prevent loss of electricity. A co-location hosting facility has access to steady power supplies, battery backups, and generators.

Advanced Climate Control Systems:

Maintaining the perfect temperature and humidity requirements for servers to operate at optimal efficiency can be a tricky balance to achieve. A co-location hosting facility will have tailored climate control systems that allow the data center managers to properly maintain ideal environmental conditions.

Live Monitoring Of Equipment:

In a typical office, your first indication that hardware is in need of maintenance, update, or replacement is when something fails, slowing or stopping your employees’ production. With co-location hosting, IT professionals are monitoring your equipment constantly to ensure it is performing optimally.

Better Management:

In your own brick-and-mortar location, your servers might be managed by a contract IT person, a part-time worker, or a full-time employee who wears several different hats.

Upgrading or downloading your server’s capabilities in this environment involves lots of moving parts. When using a co-location hosting provider, a simple email or phone call will perform the same work, without adding to your budget or reducing employee productivity.
