How Colocation Makes Everything Easier for Business Owners

How Colocation Makes Everything Easier for Business Owners

The business owner has always had the unique challenge of managing and maintaining all of their organization’s operations and administrative difficulties. These days, technology is also a major pain point for organizations that rely heavily on it. Your business can free up valuable time and resources by choosing to outsource your organization’s technical obligations to a managed service provider.


In particular, colocation services are valuable assets that can be leveraged by your business to maintain top performance. When we talk about colocation, we’re generally referring to the ability of a business to host one or more of their solutions in an off-site data center. It’s essentially a private cloud hosted off-site. Normally, businesses that take advantage of colocation are responsible for maintaining their own infrastructures, but a managed service provider can easily fill this role, allowing organizations to reap all of the benefits without any of the downsides.

Rowland Kinch of Custodian Data Centres writes to Data Center Knowledge explaining the great convenience that your business can reap from colocation services:

For financial directors and IT directors, colocation provides the perfect win-win scenario, providing cost savings and delivering state-of-the-art infrastructure. When comparing the capabilities of a standard server room to a colocation solution, an assessment of the power alone demonstrates the gap between in-house solutions and utilizing the expertise of a specialist.

Some of the major benefits that colocation offers small and medium-sized businesses include:

  • Consolidation of solutions and space: If your business is running its infrastructure out of a colocation data center, you won’t need to worry about hosting your data internally in a server room. This means that you can use the space for other initiatives or storage opportunities.
  • Decreased operation costs: If your solutions are hosted in an off-site data center that’s managed by a third party, you’ll naturally experience a decrease in operational costs. Considering the fact that you won’t have to pay for the air conditioning and electricity costs of running so many pieces of hardware, you can potentially save a significant portion of revenue that can be better used in other parts of your business model.
  • Management and maintenance from professional technicians: Technology isn’t easy to manage, and if you’ve been trying to do so for your organization, you know that the best way to do it is by having a team of technicians dedicated to the sole responsibility of maintaining your technology infrastructure. The colocation data center that hosts your technology can be maintained by trusted tech professionals who make it their sole responsibility to handle your systems.

If your organization is ready to take the future of its technology maintenance seriously, colocation is a great way to optimize your infrastructure and prepare it for growing trends, like cloud computing. OMNI Solutions Group can assist your business with the transition into a colocation-based technology management system. To learn more, give us a call at 301-869-6890.
