This board will serve as the discussion for colocation.
A colocation facility, often known as a colo, is a data center where a company may rent space for servers and other computing devices. A colo typically offers the structure, cooling, electricity, bandwidth, and physical security, while the client provides the servers and storage. Rack, cabinet, cage, or room space is frequently rented in the facility. Many colos have expanded their capabilities to include managed services to help their clients with their business goals. A company may select a colo over establishing its own data center for a variety of reasons, but one of the primary motivators is the Capex (capital cost) associated with building, operating, and upgrading a computing facility.
