Colocation Benefits One of the biggest benefits of using colocation services from a full service provider instead of owning your data center is reduced management costs. Cost savings is the primary benefit of colocation. Simply put, colocation provides the benefits renting versus buying a home. With colocation you don’t need to worry about keeping up with maintenance, repairs and power and cooling upgrades. Colocating also provides peace of mind. When the power goes out, a natural disaster hits or an other unexpected event impacts your place of business, colocation will make sure that your data will remain online and available.
