Colocation refers to a technique whereby various companies house their IT infrastructure with a service provider at an external location where they have access to secure, high-performance and reliable technology.

Service providers provide server rooms that are specially designed to house IT equipment such as servers. They ensure optimum connection of the systems, high reliability, optimum conditions for operation, but also maximum security to protect the server cabinets against unauthorized access.

The server rooms are permanently monitored to ensure fail-safe and high-availability operation and are equipped with an uninterruptible power supply, high-performance air conditioning, video surveillance and access security.
