Advantages of Colocation

Posted on: March 19th, 2014 by VeloxServ

The massive growth of cloud hosting and the challenges of how to secure, manage and store data is only increasing, some companies that manage their own internal infrastructure are running out of space, power or cooling capacity.

Many companies find that offsite co-location offers an attractive alternative to owning and maintaining their own server rooms. They benefit by outsourcing  management and maintenance of core datacentre infrastructure, while retaining the access and control over their mission-critical dedicated servers and business applications.

Power Capacity and Redundancy:

Colocation facilities provide access to a more robust power infrastructure than most server rooms, allowing companies to leverage innovations in virtualisation and cloud computing. Private server rooms require backup in the case of a power outage. Our power infrastructure is designed to ensure constant, uninterrupted power to your equipment. We offer a 100% service level agreement (SLA) for customers who utilise power feeds from our diverse UPS systems.

Reliability and Uptime:

Your business continuity depends on 100% network reliability, which can be difficult and costly to maintain when operating a private server room. We offer a number of high uptime networking options, so you have the flexibility to choose the ideal solution for your needs in a carrier-neutral setting. Our infrastructure is designed to deliver reliability and availability.

24/7 Support:

With colocation, your IT team has the choice of maintaining their own equipment or using VeloxServ’s remote hands to assist in the maintenance and management of servers and equipment. With around the clock access to our technical experts, you have the peace of mind that a professional will always be available to assist with your IT infrastructure.


Our Datacentre facilities are hardened against 5 key predators; fire, theft, heat, flood and power outages. We offer multiple layers of security including 24/7 onsite security, cardkey entry, cabinet locks, virtual perimeter trip wires and CCTV.

Disaster Recovery:

When Colocating your infrastructure you gain additional peace of mind in the event of a natural disaster, power outage, or other unexpected event that impacts your primary business. Choosing colocation ensures that your servers and applications will remain available and operational if the unexpected happens.
