In its simplest form Colocation is the practice of housing your IT hardware within a third-party data centre facility. This service enables you to rent space in a facility that was custom built to provide the best environment for your IT infrastructure. The key components of a colocation service is the provision of physical space, redundant power and cooling, and network connectivity whilst you retain ownership and management of your hardware.
