7 Advantages of Colocation Vs. On Premise Hosting

ColocationCustomers who are looking for a hosting solution, particularly those who currently have an on premise hosted IT environment and are considering colocation, often face a range of questions with regard to their infrastructure choices. We’ve put together a list of some of the common issues companies face when deciding between colocation and on premise hosting to help make it easier to choose between the two solutions.

In many cases, colocation offers several advantages in terms of IT management and business continuity. A hosted solution provides the benefit of the experience, knowledge and resources of the hosting provider.

Fall-back scenarios are tested regularly to make sure these measures do not fail at crucial moments.

Hosting providers also have additional arrangements in place with an energy supplier for redundant energy connections that enter the building at different locations.
