Colocation (also known as ‘co-location’ or ‘colo’) is the practice of housing privately-owned servers and networking equipment in a third party data centre. Instead of keeping servers in-house, in offices or at a private data centre, companies can choose to ‘co-locate’ their equipment by renting space in a colocation centre. Therefore, unlike other kinds of hosting, where customers can rent space on a server owned by a hosting provider, with colocation the customer already owns the server and rents the required physical space to house it within a data centre.
We always have your hardware in mind and take care of the administration and monitoring of your systems, if you wish. The servers are located in Frankfurt at 23media, which guarantees a good connection and our employees are ready for you in an emergency (Topic: Disaster Recovery)
In an emergency, we will try to restore the data and exchange defective infrastructure and hardware, and thus continue to ensure the operation of the servers. This is, of course, only with a mutual agreement with you!
