Datacenter Design in Houston

A colocation (colo) is a datacenter facility in which a business can rent space for a server room, datacenter design in Houston, and other computing hardware.

Typically, a datacenter provides the building, cooling, power, bandwidth and physical security while the customer provides servers and storage. Space in the facility is often leased by the rack, cabinet, cage or room. Many colos have extended their offerings to include managed IT services that support their customers' business initiatives.

There are several reasons a business might choose a colo over building its own data center, but one of the main drivers is the capital expenditures (CAPEX) associated with building, maintaining and updating a large computing facility. In the past, colos were often used by private enterprises for disaster recovery. Today, colos are especially popular with cloud service providers.

Elite DataComm can design and implement your network to work from within a datacenter based on your company size and network demands.
