Server colocation as well as dedicated servers are two primary services offered by a data center. Their main function is to ensure the top security of the stored data, which they indeed do in a bidirectional way: by eliminating the risk of data loss and providing continuous access to it.
Colocating the infrastructure in an external, professionally managed data center goes with a wide spectrum of tangible benefits. Most importantly, the erased data is extremely difficult to retrieve and that no one can really afford so here it comes the already mentioned matter of security. On top of that, such a solution also spares you the huge cost of deploying and maintaining your personal server room – and we all love some extra savings, don′t we?
