Colocation, or Data Centre-as-a-Service takes the complexity out of managing in-house IT infrastructure. Colocation strips out all of the cost associated with running a data centre, and unburdens the customer from owning it. Just some of the major costs colocation helps to immediately alleviate includes data centre technician costs, generators, electricity, security, private carrier links, insurance, UPS systems, audits and costs associated with compliance adherence, fuel and many more.
When colocation is consumed as-a-Service the cost is amortised and operationalised, opposed to capital spend. Based on the power consumed and space taken, colocation is simplified down to one line item that is right-sized to a customer’s needs, with the flexibility wrapped around it to grow in line with business needs
