No, it’s not a joke. Many companies have their servers in-house in the weirdest places one can imagine. And by the way, housing your servers in your closet does not mean your data is safe or that, in case of downtime, your data recovery will be quick and fast.
On the contrary, having your servers in the closets exposes you to various unforeseen risks that you might not imagine. Placing your servers in a data center provides the right protection for your equipment and data in an unprecedented way. Read more about CipherSpace Colocation services and the unique value proposition and benefits we offer to our clients.
What is Colocation?
Colocation refers to the practice of housing your servers and devices in a professional data center in order to access economies of scale, advanced infrastructure, greater bandwidth, lower latency, specialist services and systems, constant security, and a whole host of additional advantages. As technologies become more extensive and sophisticated,
the option of constructing or adding on to a proprietary, private datacenter becomes commercially and practically nonfeasible. CipherSpace offers colocation services at state-of-the-art facilities in 2 continents and 3 major cities across North America and Europe: In Europe, CipherSpace has two locations in Switzerland.
What Are CipherSpace Colocation Services?
Colocation services are offered by CipherSpace at its datacenters equipped and configured to allow clients secure access to private servers. We believe that providing flexibility is a key element of colocation services. We allow our clients to choose a bespoke build that allows them to personalize their colocation plans in order to decide which aspects of their system they want to focus on. We have a range of different facilities options to offer, allowing our clients to choose the infrastructure that best suits them and their budget.
CipherSpace colocation services include provisioning the leasing of server cabinets and cages, connecting to a preferred ISP’s physical network infrastructure, and providing monitored server status.
Each cabinet and cage is securely locked and inaccessible to other colocation clients. The hardware is administered by the client independently without our involvement, except manual server restarts upon request.
CipherSpace colocation services let our clients take advantage of our superior data center infrastructure, while at the same time maintaining control over their servers.
CipherSpace colocation services are an effective way to obtain business continuity, scalability, and minimal network latency at a fraction of the cost of maintaining your own in-house private datacenter. At the same time, you always maintain complete control over the physical server, the operating system, and the applications.
