What is Colocation and how does it work?

Colocation is the practice of hosting your privately-owned physical servers in a highly secure Data Facility.  Instead of hosting and maintaining your server on premise, you simply rent a dedicated space to host your server in a Data Centre.

In a nutshell, you rent the space from us and we’ll install and maintain your server hardware in our Data Centre.

Why collocate your servers with Ghost IT?

Economy of scale – Access higher levels of bandwidth at a much lower cost when compared to hosting on premise. In addition, you’ll also free up valuable office space and reduce your monthly energy and maintenance costs.

A state of the art infrastructureAdded redundancy and lightning fast, resilient connectivity ensures lower Network Latency, better reliability and greater protection from power outages.

A fully Managed service – We take full ownership of day-to-day server maintenance and patching responsibilities, while you retain full control of your IT Systems.

99.999% Network uptime – You’ll build in an added layer of resiliency for Business Continuity in the event of power loss thanks to the additional redundancy features at our Data Centre facilities. These include:

  • Duel 32A power feeds to each cabinet, with higher density options available upon request
