    Server Co-Location

    What is Server Co-Location?

    Rational Business Solutions Inc. is dedicated to protecting your business’ valuable data. And Server Co-location helps backup & protect your data from the unexpected

    Inquiry

    Hello,

    Recently we had power outage at our office. Unfortunately, our on-site back up did not work and we lost a couple of days worth of data. I was speaking with someone who recommends using a company that provides server co-location services. Could you explain what server co-location means? Also, does it mean the same as colo?

     

    Thank you for your help!

    Answer from Rational Business Solutions Inc:

    The key issue in your question is how can you protect your data in the event of a power outage or a server crisis. Co-locating your server will not necessarily prevent this from happening. Server co location, or colo, is when you place your servers in a data centre rather than on your premises. This can provide a more secure and stable environment for your server. However, you can still lose data in the event of a server malfunction. Data centres will typically have good backup power so that a power outage will not occur, but they cannot prevent a hardware malfunction or a user generated incident that shuts down your server.

     

    We recommend a backup solution that uses local data backup and offsite data backup that is monitored and occurs automatically. In partnership with Datto – an expert in cyber-security and data backup – we provide exactly this type of solution that has the added benefit of virtualization so that your business can continue to operate in the event of a critica! server malfunction.
