About Data Center Colocation

Colocation Data Centers (or multi-tenant data centers) are a type of data center where equipment, space, and bandwidth are available for rental to retail customers. Multiple companies can rent space at a single Data Center Colocation center instead of setting up their own enterprise data center. The Data Center Colocation vendor provides space, power, cooling systems, and physical security for equipment. Companies can set up their servers, storage, and networking equipment and connect them to a variety of telecommunications and network service providers. Wholesale Colocation Data Centers, or Multi-Tenant Data Centers, host only a few large businesses, whereas Retail Colocation is for a greater number of tenants.
