Colocation hosting is the process of a business taking their own physical hardware and hosting it with a third-party web hosting company in an enterprise-class data center; the simplest way of looking at co-location hosting is as dedicated server hosting, but you own the hardware that you are supplying. Larger businesses can often make deals with hardware suppliers when purchasing equipment in bulk and if this is possible then it can work out cheaper than dedicated server hosting; furthermore, by owing your own equipment you can guaranteed that it’ll have some sort of disposal value in several years when the time comes to upgrade – with a dedicated server you will never own the hardware and so you will never see any of the money spent on dedicated server hosting again.
ESDS provides a range of different co-location options so that we can cater for businesses of all sizes. Servers are available in different sizes and ESDS recognizes this by offering the following co-location choices to our customers:
All co-location purchases include network and power connectivity so that you have access to the services necessary to connect your hardware to the internet. The power supply that is offered with each of the co-location plans offered by ESDS is appropriate for the average power of the hardware that the hosting plan is designed to suit; you can always purchase additional power if you feel that your hardware is going to require extra juice to keep it running. As part of your connection to the internet, you will be provided with a number of IP addresses so that your server can be accessed from any internet-connected computer; similarly to power units, extra IP addresses can be purchased for your server as and when necessary.
