What is Colocation?   no comments

Posted at Mar 21, 2017 @ 11:10am colocation,Web hosting

Colocation POD

Colocation or ‘Colo’ is a solution offered by major data centers that provides businesses and organizations a place to host their servers and other IT hardware in a secure, high-tech facility. Whether it’s a small business that doesn’t want to hire an entire tech department, a large company that wants the stability and security of a data center, or somewhere in between, Colocation offers benefits to all types of businesses.

 

Security & Protection

Most data centers that offer colocation have high levels of physical security. Features such as security cameras, 24×7 on-site staff, individual cages or cabinets have locks, as well as biometric scanning at all access points and more! If the proper security is in place, a data center may also be SSAE-16 certified. This allows businesses to colocate their equipment and benefit from the SSAE-16 compliance already in place to avoid costly and time-consuming auditing of your company’s office or facility.

With Colocation, businesses own their equipment. Since they own the equipment, only their staff has access to it and the data it holds. Unlike typical web hosting solutions, where data may me stored on a shared server, they will be the only ones with access to their data.

 

Uptime

Most businesses run 24×7. Even after ‘store hours’ a business needs to be online and connected, especially if they operate an online store or website. Being down for minutes or an hour can spell disaster. Imagine an organization’s IT infrastructure down for a day or a week while the power’s down due to a storm.  This disrupts potential clients from accessing their servers! In a colocation facility like TurnKey Internet’s datacenter, your company’s IT infrastructure is housed in our redundant, high-speed Internet-connected facility, with continuous power provided by industrial UPS battery systems and on-site diesel generators for emergency backups.

 

Room To Grow

In a typical office IT environment, if a company quickly needs to increase bandwidth or add physical space to the office, they could wait weeks or even months. When their infrastructure is located in a colocation facility, they can provide huge amounts of additional bandwidth within minutes or hours. A typical data center can have a bandwidth capacity 10,000 times that of a typical office cable Internet connection.

 

Cost Savings

Businesses that build their own on-site IT infrastructure can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions, to have the same bandwidth capabilities and enterprise grade power and cooling systems featured at a colocation facility. Fiber optic lines, connecting to major internet hubs across the world are not purchased for pennies either! Add in redundancy to their office, and businesses are paying tens of thousands of dollars a year. On the other hand, if they instead chose to utilize a colocation facility, it might have cost them less than $100 a month.

 

Colocation is the ideal solution for companies, service providers, small businesses and IT resellers who want a stable environment in which to completely control their assets. It provides complete control of your hardware, software and networking to match your needs without worrying about the supporting infrastructure. By colocating with TurnKey Internet, you are able to focus on your business and not on office networking, power or server issues that plague localized installations and office infrastructure. We provide redundant networking, power and cooling to ensure your services remain online and accessible at all time.

5 Ways Colocation Can Help Your Business Succeed   no comments

Posted at Jan 24, 2017 @ 10:20am colocation,Web hosting

Colocation

While outsourcing non-core business functions to cloud-computing enterprises is a growing trend, many firms still prefer to keep a close eye on their most critical business functions and databases. Internet professionals such as website hosting providers and website designers are well aware of vast server farms that rent dedicated servers to website design firms, retail concerns and innumerable other commercial and non-commercial organizations, but colocation providers generally have worked quietly in the background. Still, they continue to offer invaluable services to businesses that wish to retain ownership of the computer servers that host their core business functions and intellectual property while also outsourcing hardware management and its associated concerns to industry professionals.

For many companies, offloading the care and feeding of computer servers onto trained IT professionals at a colocation provider carries multiple advantages. Indeed, colocation services have steadily expanded year after year with leading industry experts expecting the global colocation market to exceed $33 billion by 2018. An in-depth examination shows that five major considerations lie behind the decision by CIOs and other corporate officials to rely on colocation services.

 

1) Connectivity

Colocated servers are only as good as the internet connectivity that allows them to cram immense flows of data up and down the line, and colocation providers typically subscribe to multiple high-level broadband providers such as Level 3 Communications to establish superior bandwidth redundancy and to encourage competition that results in cost savings for both the colocation provider and server owners. Quite apart from the sheer efficiency of sharing top-tier bandwidth access across innumerable servers, the climate-controlled environment keeps servers within a consistent temperature range to ensure that sensitive network equipment and server components don’t fail from extended exposure to excessive heat.

 

2) Stability

The impact on productivity from moving corporate offices, encountering a natural disaster or suffering through an extended interruption of electrical power can be disastrous. Even the most efficient company may experience a series of unfortunate events that repeatedly delay its return to full operational status. In the meantime, customers may be yelling about misplaced orders and bungled services, and employees may be left without real work as core business processes fail to function as expected.

More than a few CIOs and other upper-management staffers prefer instead to shield the company’s critical server operations from such potential chaos by entrusting them to an efficient colocation provider with multiple power backups and contingency plans for dealing with everything from earthquakes through cable-chewing squirrels.

 

3) Security

In an age of brazen corporate espionage by overseas agencies, ensuring physical data security can be a challenge. Even in the absence of foreign or domestic interest in valuable intellectual property held by a business, employee honesty and awareness of basic security precautions aren’t always guaranteed. Hard drives and other computer components sometimes have a habit of walking out the door, and allowing direct physical access to servers located inside open offices also increases the risk of malicious hacking attacks by criminal gangs through the agency of malware-laden USB sticks left lying around in company parking lots.

A well-equipped colocation provider likely will lock down its facilities with multiple security measures, including burglar-resistant, alarmed entry and exit doors; coded access procedures that track all physical access to hosted servers; strategically placed surveillance cameras; biometric scanners to prevent unauthorized access by intruders and even individually locked cages for each client’s servers. Spreading the cost of these high-security measures across hundreds or thousands of servers allows the colocation provider to efficiently offer economies of scale otherwise unavailable to the great majority of small to mid-size businesses.

 

4) Scalability

As a business expands or contracts in response to unpredictable economic swings and marketplace developments, its computing needs may similarly fluctuate. Managing human resources typically represents the largest expense for the great majority of firms, and the hiring and firing process is invariably expensive and painful. Instead of suffering through unpredictable demand cycles for in-house staff to manage IT hardware resources, business customers may purchase additional servers from the colocation provider or else instruct a responsible staffer to purchase additional custom equipment to be delivered to the colocation provider for installation.

 

5) Financial Predictability

Maintaining in-house data management facilities typically invites unexpected capital outlays that play havoc with limited quarterly budgets. Many firms prefer the predictability of a fixed monthly outlay that covers the great majority of expenses associated with managing critical IT hardware capability across all corporate functions. Strategic planning and corporate accounting become easier with fewer surprises for the unwary.

 

Only robust discussion among company principals can determine the ultimate wisdom of outsourcing IT hardware management functions to a dedicated third party. However, the cost savings, significantly improved operational stability and peace of mind offered by the colocation option have proven to be compelling value propositions for an expanding number of commercial enterprises, as well as SMBs and other organizations.

How Colocation Can Benefit Your Business   no comments

Posted at Oct 6, 2016 @ 9:27am colocation

Colocation-Benefits

Modern office workers find it increasingly difficult to imagine the era that existed before computers began to invade almost every business function, but older organizational habits die slowly. Many businesses tend to treat their computers and networking equipment as just one more set of machines to be maintained by the same support personnel who repair copying machines, fix broken drill presses and replace burned-out light bulbs.

 

Both Power and Fragility

Notwithstanding the persistence of outdated attitudes, information technology (IT) infrastructure is special. Even as computer technology affords great power to leverage core business competencies and to greatly reduce or eliminate costly manual labor, it also brings oftentimes underestimated fragility and vulnerability. While uncommon these days in most industrialized countries, sudden power failures can abruptly bring vital business processes to a grinding halt, and extended power failures can wreak havoc on critical information processes and the integrity of irreplaceable databases.

Furthermore, the majority of businesses can’t afford extensive security measures, and a stolen server might mean the loss of critical accounting records and customer databases. Limited bandwidth availability at a local office might mean sluggish internet communications, potentially driving away customers and digging into profitability.

 

Server Colocation Providers

While outsourcing non-core business functions to cloud-computing enterprises is a growing trend, many firms still prefer to keep a close eye on their most critical business functions and databases. Internet professionals such as website hosting providers and website designers are well aware of vast server farms that rent dedicated servers to website design firms, retail concerns and innumerable other commercial and non-commercial organizations, but colocation providers generally have worked quietly in the background. Still, they continue to offer invaluable services to businesses that wish to retain ownership of the computer servers that host their core business functions and intellectual property while also outsourcing hardware management and its associated concerns to industry professionals.

An in-depth examination shows that five major considerations lie behind the decision by CIOs and other corporate officials to rely on colocation services.

 

Heightened Security

In an age of brazen corporate espionage by overseas agencies, ensuring physical data security can be a challenge. Even in the absence of foreign or domestic interest in valuable intellectual property held by a business, employee honesty and awareness of basic security precautions aren’t always guaranteed. Hard drives and other computer components sometimes have a habit of walking out the door, and allowing direct physical access to servers located inside open offices also increases the risk of malicious hacking attacks by criminal gangs through the agency of malware-laden USB sticks left lying around in company parking lots.

A well-equipped colocation provider likely will lock down its facilities with multiple security measures, including burglar-resistant, alarmed entry and exit doors; coded access procedures that track all physical access to hosted servers; strategically placed surveillance cameras; biometric scanners to prevent unauthorized access by intruders and even individually locked cages for each client’s servers. Spreading the cost of these high-security measures across hundreds or thousands of servers allows the colocation provider to efficiently offer economies of scale otherwise unavailable to the great majority of small to mid-size businesses.

 

Extreme Connectivity

Colocated servers are only as good as the internet connectivity that allows them to cram immense flows of data up and down the line, and colocation providers typically subscribe to multiple high-level broadband providers such as Level 3 Communications to establish superior bandwidth redundancy and to encourage competition that results in cost savings for both the colocation provider and server owners. Quite apart from the sheer efficiency of sharing top-tier bandwidth access across innumerable servers, the climate-controlled environment keeps servers within a consistent temperature range to ensure that sensitive network equipment and server components don’t fail from extended exposure to excessive heat.

 

Improved Scalability

As a business expands or contracts in response to unpredictable economic swings and marketplace developments, its computing needs may similarly fluctuate. Managing human resources typically represents the largest expense for the great majority of firms, and the hiring and firing process is invariably expensive and painful. Instead of suffering through unpredictable demand cycles for in-house staff to manage IT hardware resources, business customers may purchase additional servers from the colocation provider or else instruct a responsible staffer to purchase additional custom equipment to be delivered to the colocation provider for installation.

Many firms prefer the predictability of a fixed monthly outlay that covers the great majority of expenses associated with managing critical IT hardware capability across all corporate functions. Strategic planning and corporate accounting become easier with fewer surprises for the unwary.

 

Increased Stability

The impact on productivity from moving corporate offices, encountering a natural disaster or suffering through an extended interruption of electrical power can be disastrous. Even the most efficient company may experience a series of unfortunate events that repeatedly delay its return to full operational status. In the meantime, customers may be yelling about misplaced orders and bungled services, and employees may be left without real work as core business processes fail to function as expected.

More than a few CIOs and other upper-management staffers prefer instead to shield the company’s critical server operations from such potential chaos by entrusting them to an efficient colocation provider with multiple power backups and contingency plans for dealing with everything from earthquakes through cable-chewing squirrels.

Ditch the Messy Server Room and Move to Colocation   no comments

Posted at Jan 5, 2016 @ 9:13am colocation

messy-server-room-wiringIn the late 80s /early 90s times where starting to change, this wonderful technology era we live in now was just beginning. Businesses now, need to be online in order to stay competitive and grow with this new age.

Like most business a Server Room was built, in a spare room or space in your office or home and today now resembles a pile of mis-colored wires that you could spend days trying to untangle. You purchased equipment that easily fit into your budget, and your team was able to configure the networking without any troubles. This setup was the same in all business across the board. In the beginning of this era, you could get away with this. There was no thought of cooling systems or ventilation. No notion of backup power systems, or any real working order was to be found in your Server Room.

Once again, the era of technology has changed. Businesses need their operations to run with super speeds, be secure, maintained, monitored, and most of all be redundant. The terms Server Room and Data Center could once be used interchangeably, no longer can they now.

A Server Room can be any room, in any building that houses servers. Whereas a Data Center, is a whole building designed to support and provide a secure, power protected, environmentally controlled space, used for accommodating servers, networking, and computer equipment.

 

Some of the key points to a Data Center, a Server Room does not have.

Security and Monitoring:

Most Server Rooms do not have a high volume of security. Besides the buildings overall security, there may be a lock on the Server Room door.

Data Centers pride themselves in the security features they offer. All entrances and exits are secured with a key coded entry system, as well as alarms. Not just alarms for entry. Alarms for temperature control, air pressure, fire / water control, ect. All Data Centers have network cameras, accessible to their staff and security team in a needed event. The cores / racks the servers are housed in are all locked. Only opened when your team needs to visit or by the Data Center staff, if needed.

Connectivity:

What good is your server if you have a fixed bandwidth rate? Most Server Rooms are capped off by their ISP as they are using a residential internet service.

Data Centers do not use any type of residential internet service and most times are able to set the bandwidth limits as they are needed by the server.

Redundancy:

If there is a power failure at your business, do you have a backup power plan? Most Server Rooms run from the same power source, as the full office. Making your sites and servers go down if there is ever a power failure.

Data Centers have a plan for any type of failure. When it comes to power failures, most Data Centers have battery backups, automatically triggered if the main power supply is not responding. When the system sees the backup batteries are being utilized, another backup power source is engaged, the generator.   At this point the battery backups turn off and all power is controlled by the generator until normal power is restored.

Affordability:

With a Server Room, you are accumulating all the costs that go along with it.  You may have had to cut advertising short or possibly even lay off good employees as the costs to maintain and house your equipment have risen. At a Data Center all those costs are tied into your package and at a much, much lower cost.

 

Environment:

Datacenters control the cooling and humidity – to a precise and perfect level to keep your equipment running as long as possible.  Storing equipment in non-conditioned environmental space like your server room or office closet will shorten the life of your equipment significantly (meaning it will cost you real money to replace broken equipment sooner).  Electronics are sensitive to things like electrical and static shock, which occur due to improper humidity (moisture) and you can even find corrosion on the electronics in some poor environmental conditions.  Its crucial if you have valuable equipment to store it in a properly humidified and cooled location like a datacenter.

 

Green (going Green):

Some modern datacenters, like TurnKey Internet’s Green Datacenter , offer one additional benefit ontop of everything above.  Your IT equipment and servers consume less energy in terms of cooling and power draw in a modern green-focused datacenter – and in TurnKey Internet’s datacenter your equipment consumes energy provided by only by the Sun (on-site solar array) and Water (Hydro power) providing zero carbon foot prints for your IT infrastructure versus having it at your office.

 

Our offices do not look anything like they did 20 years ago. Our businesses are not what they were 20 years ago. Most companies have employees living all around the world, remoting in for work. Your administrative staff is no longer dependent on white out, typewriters, and filing cabinets. You attend conferences and meetings by using a phone, tablet, or even your watch. The majority of your business is conducted over email and most of your sales are placed through your website. In order to keep up with these growing times, we now need to ditch the Server Room and head to the Data Center.

Colocation : Leveraging the Benefits of The Cloud With the Security of Owning The Infrastructure   no comments

Posted at Oct 14, 2014 @ 9:02am colocation,turnkey cloud

turnkey-internet-datacenter-pod-technology-colocationJeremy here again and this week we will be covering one topic: Colocation.

 

Have you ever heard of collocation? Did you know it is a GREAT way to grow your business whether a small or large business. You get the benefits of the Cloud, along with the performance and security of having your own servers, vpn devices, firewalls and infrastructure.  Before we delve too far into this topic, lets first define what collocation actually is. Directly from our friends over at Wikipedia:

 

colocation centre or colocation center (also spelled co-locationcollocationcolo, or coloc) is a type of data centre where equipment, space, and bandwidth are available for rental to retail customers. Colocation facilities provide space, power, cooling, and physical security for the server, storage, and networking equipment of other firms—and connect them to a variety of telecommunications and network service providers—with a minimum of cost and complexity.

 

You can read the full article at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colocation_centre. To sum up colocation for you, collocation is when you use a datacenter to house your servers. This could be one server all the way up to a full rack of servers. Here at Turnkey Internet, we have several clients who lease several racks from us that house their entire IT(Information technology) department. Now, you may be wondering, how will this help me to grow my business? I feel the best way to answer that question is to list some of the benefits of collocation. I will then delve into a few of the benefits to show you would reap rewards from colocation

 

  • A predictable and operation expenditure model
  • Better access to space and power
  • Integrated, advanced components
  • Cutting-edge security system including lockable racks
  • Network connectivity
  • Cooling
  • Real-time live monitoring
  • 24/7 monitoring by engineers

 

Now that we’ve listed some of benefits, lets delve a bit deeper into a few of the benefits beginning with:

 

A predictable and operation expenditure model

 

When you have a small to medium size business chances are, you can’t afford to spend large quantities of money on your IT infrastructure. This could be everything from hiring a full-time IT engineer to setting up your own network infrastructure. The prices you would pay could exceed what you have budgeted for your business. For example, one of the most expensive items with owning a datacenter or housing your IT department will be the power. The power that each server uses. The power to keep the servers running 24×7. The power needed to run a generator or battery backup in case your office encounters a power failure. Power is just one example to use, but I used power to show that you may not know the amount per month you will be spending on just power alone. Factor in setting up redundant network, bandwidth pricing or the amount you have to pay your IT engineer to keep it running and your business could be looking at well over 6 figures.

 

This is where a major benefit of collocation stems from. You can sign up for a collocation contract at Turnkey Internet and receive one flat rate for all of those items. Your bill per month would be predictable as you would know each month how much you’re going to be paying to run your IT department. Colocation takes a lot of the variability out of the equation

 

Better access to space and power

 

Quick, does your office or business currently have enough space within it to run your IT department? Keep in mind that you will need ample space for the servers themselves. You will also need ample room to bring power into your business to run the server. Don’t forgot about cooling, batteries and a plethora of other options you will need to run your IT department. Do you currently have enough space in your business for those services? If not, collocation could be a great option as all you would need to is send your server into the datacenter. They will take care of spacing and power needs. You wouldn’t have to worry about your office overheating from 20 servers running and not enough room to disperse the heat. You could also include this under cooling.

 

Network connectivity

 

One of the biggest costs in running your IT department in house are the costs associated with keeping your network at 100%. This may seem like common sense since you’re running a business on the internet, but are you aware of how often your network can lose connectivity? This can be caused from a faulty network cable all the way to a full scale DDOS attack. Please see previous blog posts to learn about DDOS attacks. When an attack or faulty cable goes down, you entire business can become crippled. How will you send email? Is your site still online? Can you communicate with your customers? Most people only worry about these type of things when they can no longer use them, however, as a business owner, you do not have that luxury. You have to stay on top of your network to ensure that you’re able to connect with your customers and vice versa. While yes, you could do this yourself, but what if you’re not a fully qualified network engineer? Will you know all of the items you will need to keep your network secure and stable? This is where collocation comes into play. Since you’re paying a fee to collocate your server, network connectivity is taken care for you. Highly qualified network engineers will constantly monitor your network for any connectivity issues and remedy them should the need arise providing you with peace of mind

 

Listed above are just 3 GREAT reasons that collocation may be an option for your business. It will help streamline your business and provide you with piece of mind that your IT department is being handled by professionals. You can see our current collocation offers at: http://turnkeyinternet.net/colocation/ While this is by no means an all inclusive list of the benefits of collocation, it should at least provide you with a starting point to determine if collocation is right for your business

 

Until next time…
