Colocation allows companies to enjoy more secure and resilient hosting, whilst eliminating the need for expensive self-provision of equipment such as generators and UPS as well as the need to provide trained staff 24 hours a day, to manage such facilities.
It really is as simple as that - you provide the server and at MaNOC we provide everything else: data centre, rack space, connection to the Internet, IP addresses, backup, DNS, email and anything else that is needed to meet your specific server co-location requirements.
You may or may not know what colocation means; the word is synonymously used with the different spellings of 'co-location' and 'collocation'; although 'colocation' is the most frequent spelling you will find on the net.
Colocation is used to mean the rental of space for your telecommunications equipment, mainly dedicated servers, in a service provider's data centre such as MaNOC in Manchester.
A data centre sometimes known as a colocation facility, is a network-connected secure managed facility for the housing of telecommunications and IT infrastructure. All you have to do is purchase a web server and we will house your server and connect you to the Internet via our network.
With MANOC your co-located server is housed in a state of art, fully secure data centre with UPS and a fire suppression system to ensure optimum performance for your server collocation.
Rest assured with MaNOC your servers are in safe hands. For further details on colocating at MaNOC please call 0800 954 8225.
