Colocation services in London FAQ

What are the Disaster Recovery Colocation connect services?
There are many aspects of Disaster Recovery. Virtual, Cloud-based instances and physical servers also fall into the category of Disaster Recovery Colocation connect services. A DR Colocation connect service includes a physical facility with racks, cabinets and cable trays to store your IT hardware. 

This space also comes with backup generators with various redundancy and/or battery backup and cooling systems to protect your equipment. But most importantly, the colocation centre also has on-site security guards and 24/7/365 surveillance to enhance data security further.

What is a Data Centre Colocation?
A Data Centre Colocation is a type of data centre where multiple clients are able to install a network, server and storage devices. This enables them to interconnect to different telecommunications and network service providers. By establishing alternative Disaster Recovery facilities, both the equipment and data can be secured and used in an emergency.

Which is the best Colocation Data Centre for an SME in London?

A quarter rack colocation can be an ideal solution for small to medium businesses. But, when choosing a Colocation Data Centre, there are things to anticipate beforehand. Location and proximity are crucial. Easy transportation to access the servers will be needed when maintenance or upgrades are required. When debating whether to look at rural areas or data centres in the city, examine Internet connectivity or energy sources. A colocation centre’s size may be substantially bigger for a much lower cost in the countryside. At TWC, we are committed to finding the best Colocation Data Centre solution for each and everyone of our clients, by focusing on their business’ needs, optimising budgets and maximising performance.

Managed Disaster Recovery Colocation connect or unmanaged: Which one is better for an SME?
A Managed Disaster Recovery Colocation service means outsourcing threat management and remediation to a Managed Service Provider (MSP). Capacity planning, technician support, on or off-site backup or part replacement services are also taken care of by your chosen IT provider. 

Depending on your Service Level Agreement with the data centre, you are also guaranteed a high percentage of power and network availability. Whereas an unmanaged Colocation service only covers basics like storing and protecting your hardware.

What is the difference between a Data centre and a Colocation?
A Data centre refers to a facility consisting of network computers and storage used by a single business to organise, process, store and distribute large amounts of data. Colocation, however, means a space within a data centre alongside multiple companies. It also requires businesses to have their own hosting servers.
What is the difference between Colocation and Cloud?

Colocation services provide access to network connectivity and a safe environment for hardware, enabling you to reach consumers worldwide. Usually, the customer provides the servers, while the colocation provider supplies the building, cooling, power, bandwidth, and physical security.

Is Colocation the same as Hosting?

The main distinction with managed hosting is that you don’t own the server. However, with colocation, it will merely be kept in a host’s data centre even if you still own it and have complete control over it.

What is Colocation Strategy?

An organisation that employs colocation must rely on a service provider to keep everything running smoothly and to maintain a clean facility even though they use their own hardware. Organisations must specify their goals for a colocation strategy in order to achieve this

What is a Colocation Environment?

A colocation facility, sometimes known as a colo, is a data centre where a company can lease space for servers and other computing equipment. In most cases, the customer provides the servers and storage while the colocation provider handles the building, cooling, electricity, bandwidth, and physical security.

What is a characteristic of Colocation?

Colocation services provide access to network connectivity and a safe environment for hardware, enabling you to reach consumers globally. Usually, the customer provides the servers, while the colocation provider provides the building, cooling, power, bandwidth, and physical security.
