What is Colocation?

The importance of IT systems for companies is well established. However, limited space and resources often prevent companies from acquiring this essential equipment, which also requires the establishment of a dedicated management team.

Colocation (also known as "colo") of a data center is a method that is increasingly popular with companies that don't have the resources or the space to install a computer system, many who go with this method also want to simply cut costs. This solution aims to rent a private or shared space in a data center. In this way, it becomes possible to take advantage of all the services of a hosting provider, as well as the IT infrastructures essential for the proper functioning of a company.
