With access to reliable, redundant power, and the promise of robust Internet connectivity, most IT organizations can implement and manage a colocated system configuration much more cost-effectively than building a datacenter internally. In fact, there is an enterprise trend to reduce overall IT spend while demanding more highly available and robust application services. Colocation was a perfect way to address this situation. Colocation experts were more than willing to take advantage of the enterprise IT cost reduction trend and offer colocation facilities to the market to address the needs of every size enterprise. As in most industries, colocation providers vary widely in size from very small to very large. Some even re-sell colocation from space leased within a larger colocation provider’s facility in a “white label” type relationship.
