Colocation is when a business houses their own equipment including servers and networking equipment in a third-party data centre. Colocation enables businesses to future proof agile IT infrastructure whilst retaining full control over own equipment and benefiting from cloud connectivity, connected communities, low investment and resilient security measures.

FAQs

We hold several accreditations with BSI including ISO 22301 in Business Continuity Management and ISO/IEC 27001 in Information Security Management (BCMS 560099).

Colocation is the sharing of a data centre facility owned by a colocation provider, with servers belonging to businesses that lease the space.

Colocation allows businesses to expand their IT infrastructure off-premise without the need to build their own facilities. Colocating with Interxion offers enterprise level bandwidth, power, cooling, and connectivity at a reasonable cost.

Both solutions have the potential to be vulnerable to attack. Cloud services with Interxion offer secure, dedicated routes to the cloud minimising the attack surface significantly. On-premise often lacks physical security measures necessary to restrict access to bad actors on site.

Colocation cabinets provide individual storage for multiple servers in the same rack. At Interxion, each section can be secured with your own locks for added security.

Colocation hosting is a service offered by a colocation facility in which the provider is responsible for management of the physical data centre, including power, cooling, and redundancies for both, and leases the space to businesses. Businesses host their owned servers in the space provided by the colocation provider.
