Short video on how Co-location can benefit your business

Benefits of Co-location

Lease vs. Build
Building your own Data Centre can be an expensive proposition requiring huge capital investments and ongoing maintenance costs. With our co-location services, you can lease Data Centre space and convert capital expenditure (CAPEX) to operating expenditure (OPEX) with predictable monthly fees.

Flexibility
You can choose to co-locate only a part of your IT environment, for instance, mission critical data, business applications, and applications that need more bandwidth.

Scalability
The solution is flexible and provides complete control over your co-location needs because you can purchase the amount of space that you need today and scale it as your business grows without having to make additional capital investments.

Reduced Time to Market
Your IT requirements can be upgraded or scaled dynamically as per growing business needs. This reduces your time to market which is imperative in today’s fast growing business environment.

Reduced Power Expenses
Data Centers demand high power & cooling requirements & therefore attract huge capital & operating expenses. If your Data Centre is not fully utilized, you would be wasting a lot of power and money.

Reduced Bandwidth Costs
Our Data Centre has high speed redundant network bandwidth, attractively packaged to cater to varying customer requirements and you pay for only what you use.

Reduced Downtime & High Availability
In case of relocation of business premises or a disaster, your business experiences near-zero downtime. Data Centre infrastructure is built for high availability complying with the requirements of business applications.

Enhanced Security
When you collocate your servers, you get 24x7 physical security, building management systems, fire and smoke detection systems, CCTV monitoring and redundant UPS and backup generators. This ensures that your critical data and applications are more secure than what you could match with in-house Data Centers.

Service Level Agreements
We provide guaranteed Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to ensure high quality of service.

24x7 Operations
The round-the-clock service desk ensures 24x7 operations and monitoring.
