Colocation allows a business to purchase its own servers and place them within a facility that is responsible for management and maintenance. Vodien Internet Solutions has launched its own Rack Colocation solution for companies looking to save IT costs while enjoying the benefits of a comprehensive IT setup.
Before colocation existed, small and medium-sized businesses typically do not have the monetary resources to setup a comprehensive IT infrastructure. Setting up a private data center just for their hosting needs, will mean large amounts of server space and bandwidth wasted. In addition, this not only requires a lot of investment at the start, but companies also had to be ready to shoulder heavy on-going maintenance expenses as well. A data center requires a 24x7x365 supply of power and cooling as well as the presence of on-site technicians to deal with a variety of situations. Small and medium-sized companies usually face problems with this, and usually resort to just basic web hosting, however, the creation of colocation services changed everything completely.
Vodien’s colocation services operate out of a data center that is over 10,000 square feet, using connections to some of the best network carriers in the world. With these in place, Vodien can provide its clients with access to a completely redundant network and bandwidth ecosystem, since the presence of multiple network carriers ensures that clients will have access to multiple routes to any destination worldwide. This resilient network ecosystem allows for a network-based 99.99% uptime, which is crucial with regards to websites, and a host of other similar network applications.
Vodien’s colocation services also ride on power supply systems which are also completely redundant. The data center is equipped with multiple backup generators, UPS units as well as dedicated transformers that ensure 24x7x365 supply of power. The presence of multiple units guarantees the supply of power even if one of the generators or transformers were to experience malfunctions. Dedicated and technically qualified personnel are present at the center to deal with any issues that might occur.
Coupled with a professionally trained team of engineers, Vodien also has one of the best customer service teams in the business. With a great response time coupled with customer service staff members completely aware of every technical detail, Vodien has the ability to provide clients with quick and easy-to-understand solutions.
