Flexible Colocation is a facility that offers its clients accommodating solutions to fit with their data center needs.
One of the solutions offered by flexible colocation facilities is the ability to expand the amount of equipment you place in the data center when a business needs change. Users can accomplish this by accommodating servers and meeting space requirements utilizing cabinets, cages, and private suites. Cabinet sizes usually range from quarter, third, half, and full cabinets.
Steel colocation cages are “built to suit” and designed based on the specific power and space requirements a user’s infrastructure requires. Private Suites provide users with additional privacy, security and efficiency needed to support their flexible colocation infrastructure.
Another flexible colocation solution is on-demand services. Clients can select power, connectivity, support, and more based on what they need and when they need it.
Some data centers offer flexible colocation solutions, which allow businesses to scale easily with guaranteed space and power. With scalable power, users have the flexibility to burst above a given commit level so power will always be available when you need it. Scalable bandwidth allows clients to exceed their commit level, which assures preparedness when demand increases.
