What is Colocation Server Hosting?
Rather than spending resources to house equipment in on-premises hot server rooms, Oplink.net server colocation hosting involves keeping your business’ hardware in a purpose-built secure and climate controlled data center.
Colocation provides an efficient solution for enterprises needing access to high-quality support staff, cooling systems, racks, power and bandwidth – without the price-tag and headaches associated with running an on-premises facility. There’s also zero hassle involved with the setup. With our colocation plans, you ship us the gear and we’ll take care of all the cabling and rack it up for you.
We take a lot of pride in our racks and cable management. We use a system called patchbox to keep things clean and easy to manage. We also custom power cords.
