These days, businesses of all shapes and sizes are considering migrating their servers from in-house, on-site, to a colocation center. Handing over responsibility for the management and maintenance of your servers sounds like a great idea. In addition, it comes with a wide variety of awesome benefits. However, senior management sometimes remains skeptical and raises concerns with making proposals.
Here are six of the most common concerns about data center colocation, and why you don’t need to worry!
- I Don’t Want To Give Up Control:
Handing over your servers can be scary. But with colocation, you don’t have to give up control at all! Although they are located off-site, you retain full control over the management of your servers. With some centers even offering access 24/7.
- I Don’t Want A Contract:
Although some colocation centers do things differently, Coloco doesn’t like to lock down its clients. Our colocation services are based on monthly subscriptions with no contracts. Meaning, you can cancel them at any time.
- I Don’t Want My Costs To Increase:
While initially you might see a cost increase, in the long term colocation is all about saving money for your business. Data centers leverage economies of scale to offer amazing value to businesses of all sizes. In addition, colocation services are generally extremely good value for money.
- I Don’t Need That Much Security:
The value of data increases every year and your servers are potentially the most valuable part of your organization. Don’t you think that deserves the best security you can get?
- I’m Worried My Small Business Won’t Be A Priority:
In every industry, small businesses are concerned about losing out to the big boys when it comes to customer service. But this really shouldn’t be an issue when it comes to colocation. Great colocation services like Coloco value their smaller clients as much if not more than their larger ones. We take care of everyone’s needs equally.
- Moving My Servers Sounds Risky:
There are obviously a lot of moving parts to a server migration process. However, expert colocation centers know exactly what they are doing and can handle every issue that arises. You’ll be fully involved in the move. The odds of anything getting lost in transit are about the same as being struck by lightning!
