I don’t have to tell you how important it is for your company to secure the data you are working on. Setting up your own server room for medium-sized companies can be too expensive but also unnecessary – not everyone has to have everything right away. There are topics where you don’t have to invest. You can use others to help you.
What is the biggest advantage?
The advantage, and at the same time the number one value, of people who decide to use collocation services is the fact that the entire infrastructure, and therefore the entire responsibility, is under the care of an external company. It is the service provider who has to do everything to ensure that your infrastructure is properly maintained, but also that you have the best possible conditions.
And what about other qualities?
Costs are probably the most important thing for every entrepreneur – first of all, using the services of external companies you are sure of predictable and fixed fees that you incur for the actual use of resources. Having your own server rooms can be different – often unexpected additional costs jump up, which you have to incur in order to make everything work as it should. Don’t forget that you don’t have to bear the costs of hiring staff – and you know exactly how much your expenses can be.
Let’s also remember that professional companies that offer collocation services also provide high security – when you have a server room yourself, all this obligation falls on you. Alarm systems, monitoring, various sensors, fire protection or protection are all included in the collocation service package.
It’s also worth mentioning the support you get in the package. You don’t have employees to do it all. However, you can count on the knowledge and experience of specialists who are available 24/7 and will offer you remote assistance in every situation.
Remember that server operation is a very important task – it must be performed flawlessly, so if you have concerns about setting up your own server room, it may be better to have the help of specialists.
