As businesses expand, the demand for availability, resources and bandwidth increases; leading to increased expenditure on infrastructure, security and connectivity. Although moving your IT Services out-of-house can be a daunting prospect, Colocation offers a secure, high availability, cost effective solution, where resources are readily available, supported by our business-class Service Level Agreement.
Colocation is particularly suitable for organisations who want to maintain complete control of their hardware and applications without the challenges associated with sustaining their own servers on-site. By locating their servers off-site in a highly secure, controlled and continuously monitored environment, clients are able to benefit from a rigorous disaster recovery strategy.
Client equipment is protected by comprehensive security measures when housed in Ancar B data centres including, 24/7 security, CCTV and controlled access. The server environment is serviced with dry cool air, constant clean filtered power supply and heavily earthed network connections. The physical housings are protected from fire by managed and automated extinguishing systems.
For clients requiring their own secure space and equipment, we can provide your own rack. Unmanaged racks start at 11U (quarter-cab) dimensions. Around the clock access is provided, along with remote assistance if the client is unable to visit the Data Centre.
However, for clients who do not want the distraction of looking after their own kit, Ancar B recommends Managed Colocation. Managed Colocation provides clients with access to Cisco and Microsoft Certified Engineers, enabling them to benefit from increased technical knowledge and engineer availability.
A Managed Colocation solution houses your equipment in our own rack. As a result, rack space starts at just 1U, offering a significant reduction in price for smaller installations compared to the unmanaged alternative. Around the clock access can be provided to clients, but this is shadowed by our own engineers.
