Colocation is still growing by 15% annually (according a 2013 North America Data Center Key Trends Report) and there's a reason why: organizations need the flexibility to add and contract space and power while ensuring security and compliance.
Colocation traditionally refers to housing your hardware in a professional data center, allowing you to save on bandwidth costs and ensure greater outage protection by utilizing better equipped facilities. Colocation can also include managed hosting; if you need UnitedLayer to be your colocation provider, we'll manage and maintain your hardware, freeing you up to focus on running the business.
UnitedLayer has the ability to work with you to put together a cost-effective solution as a starting point and add solutions as needed. Our colocation facilities are staffed 24/7 and can instantly respond to your needs.
