What is Colocation Hosting

Monday 27 April 2009

Colocation hosting revolves around another type of a data centre. A colocation centre is where many clients are able to locate networks, servers and storage as well as being able to interconnect through a variety of methods and network service providers. The servers belong to the customers, but the centre belongs to CWCS. Colocation hosting is cost effective and less complex than having your own server on the premises of your business.

Many large organisations are seeing the benefits of colocating their critical equipment within a data centre, and as a result CWCS colocation is becoming popular because of time and costs. Another benefit is the climate and environmental control of our colocation centres. They can regulate temperature, have protection in place against lightning or water damage, things that most businesses couldn’t ensure if they hosted their own server in a corner of their office.

CWCS Colocation provides safe web hosting in a colocation centre whilst enabling you to retain full control of your servers and their management, but still benefiting from our customer support services. Another benefit for a client is the increased bandwith colocation centres produce which speeds up website access.

Colocation Packages

CWCS colocation comes in several different packages, depending on your requirements. From a single server which comes with a couple of ip addresses and 2 amps of power, up to full racks of servers, providing 8 amps of power and 20 ip addresses.

All of our CWCS colocation packages also include multiple high speed internet connections, high security and climate controlled environments, an account manager to help ensure everything runs as it should, and plenty of free coffee when you come and work on your servers.
