Making use of our colocation facilities makes a lot of sense – from security to reliable power for critical hardware resources.

Regarding security, a colocation facility will have the latest technology and protection procedures to safeguard your data against everything from fires to power surges. Round-the-clock security ensures that sensitive corporate information is kept safe from prying eyes. The reality is that accidents do happen, but you want to have enough safety nets in place to prevent them as best as you can.

Do you want to expand your infrastructure to handle a new project? And reduce it again once the project is complete? Do you want to do so without spending stacks of money on more technology and a bigger space.?

With a colocation facility, customised rack spaces mean that you can buy the necessary racks when you need them and scale up or down depending on your changing requirements.

When it comes to power, organisations must have a plan in place so that an unreliable power supply does not impact operations. Colocation facilities have uninterrupted power backup and are built with state-of-the-art equipment to keep things running even when the lights go out. It’s their job to reduce the risk of downtime. Selecting a colocation provider is a big decision for any business. After all, you’ll be putting your mission-critical information in their care.

So now that you know what a good colocation facility can offer your organisation, and how important selecting the right partner is, why should you pick an IS data centre over other facilities?
