What is Colocation?

Colocation is just one of several options for companies that want to outsource their computing needs. With colocation, you provide the equipment, and OptfinITy hosts your equipment in our data centers which include power, ping, pipe and rack.

Here are some of the top benefits of colocation. Check them out and see if colocation is right for you.


Did your computing needs shoot up overnight? Or did they drop drastically during your slow season? Instead of having to hire — or fire — new staff or purchase more equipment to handle it yourself, you can just make a call to us at OptfinITy and we can scale your service up or down as needed.


OptfinITy’s data center keeps your servers in our climate-controlled data centers with high bandwidth speeds, and excellent redundancy for network connections and power. By using our Colocation services, you don’t have to pay the capital expenses required to purchase and maintain this kind of IT infrastructure in your own offices, and your internal IT staff can focus on other business operations.


All of our data centers include security measures such as biometric scanners, closed circuit cameras, on-site security, coded access, alarm systems, and more. And all of this is included with our standard colocation services.with our colocation, you don’t have to hire or purchase any of these security measures yourself — it’s all included in our service plan.


If you have to move offices, or are hit with a power outage, or suffer a natural disaster, you don’t have to worry about your data or services going down. All of our data center locations have multiple backup generators and contingencies in place to ensure that there is never an interruption in service, for you, or for your customers.


Not only does using a colocation provider often save money, but it also turns unpredictable capital outlays into predictable monthly expenses. You only pay for your own equipment, not a whole datacenter. Your company will be able to budget for IT needs and allocate existing resources more efficiently.
