Co-location allows customers to locate their server IT infrastructure in our Data Centers, ensuring the highest level of uptime and network performance for critical business systems.

From a single server, half, full, or several contiguous full racks, we can accommodate infrastructures of any size.

Physical access to the facility is available 24x7x365 via authorized escort, and remote management can be accomplished via VPN, Remote Desktop, SSH, or IP-KVM. In addition, all power outlets for connected systems and devices are remotely manageable for emergency reboots when required.

Managed Services for Co-located equipment are available, ranging from basic operating system installation, maintenance and support all the way to fully managed server, security, application, and hardware support services.
