    No, collocation is space/power/network/cooling, you provide the server & network hardware.

    You should look at the offers in the Colo Hosting section for a better idea of what providers consider to be colo.

    Hello,

    With colocation you are sending the hardware of your choice to be installed in a service providers facility. This is where the co - location comes in.

    You can buy a server and have it shipped to the datacenter. Most will set it up for you, sometimes with a fee.

    Now the catch is you are responsible for the hardware and any problems that result. If you lose a hard drive you now have to either repair it yourself or hire someone at the facility to find a replacement and repair your server.

    If you have customized equipment, software or a very very large number of servers then colocation will give you the control over your environment you need. Otherwise, your probably better off leasing a dedicated server.

    Ishee, the Wikipeida articles about colocation and dedicated servers are a great introduction to this topic.

    Colo will give you full control and if you have good admins on staff should be no problem. It all comes down to your specs and what SLA you want to achieve.
