For many businesses, an online presence is of the utmost importance. When it comes to reaching those high levels of success, having a presence on the internet is more of a necessity than a choice. However, making the wrong choice as to the networking and server hosting solution that you choose really does have the ability to make or break your online endeavor. That is why it is vitally important to consider all your options for server hosting to ensure that you are choosing the option that is best for the needs of your business.

Many have found that colocation services offer benefits and peace of mind that cannot be offered through any other form of server hosting currently available - including the veritable cloud. What you are doing, when you choose to use the services of a so called "colo" or co-location service, is contracting the use of space in a full fledged data center to manage your server and networking needs, as an alternative to the capital involved in building your own data center, or relying on the resources of your particular location.

A colocation server is highly beneficial for businesses who are either in the field of e-commerce - or selling products, services, or information online - or those who send and receive large quantities of sensitive data on a regular basis. There are a good number who have found this to be a far more effective alternative to the purchasing of all the resources and other means it would take to truly create a functioning and working data center. Server technology is expensive, and it is not enough to simply have the technological workings for a data center. Required is also fail-safe options, bandwidth capabilities, as well as a specialized building in which to house all the necessary equipment.

When you make the choice to go with a co-location service, many of your networking and data storage needs will be handled at the off site data center that you have contracted to handle your server needs. Part of what makes this such a great thing for business owners is the peace of mind that off site storage and handling of vital data and processing provides. Should something happen to the network of your actual business, the building that your business is located in, or even your computers, having the data and processing handled by an off site third party service provider means that even if that worst case scenario were to take place, you would not lose all your data and processing capabilities.

The costs of building a full fledged data center are prohibitive to many, leading many to go the route of colocation as a cost effective way to manage their data and processing in an efficient manner than maintains the security of said data and networking, and also provides that peace of mind that off site data management provides. Without having the hassles that come with managing your own server, or having to have the appropriate infrastructure to house the servers, you still get the freedom of choice as to which server technology you choose to go with. There are many who have found that this is a more cost effective alternative to building a full on data center, and there are many businesses for who building an on site data center just isn't an option, and this allows for the security and utility that many need.
