3 Reasons Why Data Center is Important for Your Business

Updated on July 28, 2016

Data center companies are not a new thing for big business. In the other hand, many small business owners are reluctant to trust their technology infrastructure to those companies. But the fact is collocation provider is very important for both big and small businesses. Yes, it will cost you some money, but it will definitely be worth it. If you are a small business owner, you don’t have to hire Tier 3 or 4 companies. Tier 1 or 2 will be enough and the budget is also more suitable for your small business. But if you want something more reliable and you need more flexibility just in case your business will grow rapidly, Tier 3 has the best service for you. But the bottom line is, no matter how big your business is, collocation company can always benefit you because of these following reasons.

Better Security
The collocation provider has one specific job. It is to protect your hardware and precious data inside it. Since the company is built specifically for this task, it has a very secure system that will protect your infrastructure not only from thieves or hackers, but also from natural disaster. The access to the location is restricted for authorized personnel only and you, as the client, will have the authority to choose who can access your data. If you care about the security of your data, hiring this company is the best decision you can make.

Cut Infrastructure Cost
Technology infrastructure is very expensive, not to mention the cost for maintenance and the budget you have to spare to keep it secure. When you bring colocation provider into the picture, you can save significant infrastructure cost. You will need to pay for the service of the company. But if you count the total cost for the long run, hiring the company is actually a very good investment.

Stable Power Supply
Down server and power outage is the worst nightmare for every business, especially if you rely on that server to sell your products and engage to your clients. For small business, investing in backup generators can be very expensive. But if you work with a collocation provider, you don’t have to deal with this. The company is equipped with reliable power supply and they have staff and technician that can take care of the server in no time. It will save you money and prevent you from losing your clients.
