Why the Demand for Colocation Continues to Grow

Posted on October 17, 2017 by Morgan Woodruff

The benefits of colocation are well known – and organizations are continually drawn to this model for an easier, cost effective data storage solution. As such, colocation has been seeing tremendous growth in the market, and will continue to do so, according to a new report from Vertiv.

The report found that 57% of respondents stated they will increase their usage of colocation and cloud hosting data centers within the next two years. And it’s not hard to see why -- outsourcing to a colocation data center partner provides businesses with a space to set up their network, servers and storage. Colocation eliminates the upfront infrastructure capital costs for organizations, providing companies with the option to share space in a data center, including high-density applications, redundant power and cooling options, customizable suite and cage designs and tailored security levels.

At Markley, we believe that just because you’re “sharing” space, doesn’t mean the services should be anything less than exceptional. We know that colocation isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach, so we work with every customer individually to make sure each company has a storage and security solution that matches their exact needs.
