High Speed, Off-site, Secure, Data Center Colocation

Servers

Data Center Colocation is often thought of as a resource for the largest of companies and unnecessary for small to medium sized businesses. The “real” technological value for any company is its Data. Data Center Colocation provides security and speed of access to your data. By housing data in an offsite location, a layer of protection is immediately provided against localized catastrophic events, such as fire, water damage, electrical malfunction and power loss.

While security and speed of data is paramount in today’s technological environment, the other vital component is Business Continuity. Business Continuity planning and implementation guarantees your data remains online and available; this is achieved by a well-designed and executed Disaster Prevention Plan which includes redundancy.

93% of companies that lost their data center for more than 10 days due to disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. (VaultLogix)
