Data Center Colocation is a practice of outsourcing in-house server equipment in a third-party data center. Under this, instead of occupying a room or section in the organization's infrastructure area, space is rented in a data center where the equipment is co-located. Many businesses opt for this outsourcing option to utilize their own data centers for more productive activities that contribute to the expansion of their business. While some use this cloud service to rapidly scale data capacity according to business cycle fluctuation. The main difference between public cloud and colocation is the method employed to store and manage data. Except that, both are similar. However, at times construction of physical centers is more cost convenient for a business requiring additional storage when data expands.

Data Center Colocation is economical and has a huge potential in small and medium enterprises.

Small and medium enterprises or as known as SMEs, are growing in number and operations, making a huge economic impact. These SMEs are adopting data center colocation to outsource and save cost.

Moreover, they reduce the cost of the requirement of data centers, providing benefits of bandwidth. Furthermore, data collocated centers provide higher protection and security from power failures and robbery with the adoption of data backs and high-security systems. They also provide a higher level of physical protection along with full control to the business over its equipment. Hence data centers are economical in terms of facilities and cost.

Data Center Colocation is not suitable for business with a large quantum of expanding data.

It is observed that data center colocation is not suitable for business firms that require high expanded storage facilities due to fluctuating data and growing operations. And at times construction of new data centers is more cost convenient for such business, than to rent out in data colocation centers.

If firms require, they can buy additional space by paying some cost. Troubles occur when the firm continuously has to buy additional storage, which increases the cost of the subscription. the total cost of rent subscription might become greater than the cost of operations of a data center, which drives away the market. Moreover, public cloud services also limit the market for data center colocation as they are similar and substitutable, especially for enterprises requiring less space.
