What is server colocation?

Server and equipment colocation is hosting, where customers own their own hardware and rent space, power, cooling and connectivity from the established data center. The data center provides security, support and anything else that customer business needs. DEAC also offers additional services like administration and monitoring of the customer’s hardware.

We work with wide range of companies to provide mission critical hosting services, and we have certified staff of experts ready to help all our customers with their hosting questions and needs.

What if there is a natural disaster?

Our carrier neutral data centers have been built and designed to endure extreme scenarios. We maintain fully redundant infrastructure including power, cooling and connectivity. Each data center is connected via fiber network so that cross-site data backups can be performed regularly and quickly.

What is difference between server colocation and dedicated server hosting?

Dedicated server hosting typically means that customers are using hardware provided by the data center. With colocation, the customer owns and supplies the hardware himself and simply pays for use of space in the data center. Many customers are drawn to the benefits of hosting their own hardware, especially for businesses with specific needs.

How much colocation space do I get?

A full cabinet contains 42U of cabinet space. You can choose a cabinet space that fits your business needs. Contact our specialists!

How many IP addresses are available?

Unless you have a requirement for more, you will be assigned a single IP address for each server. Along IP addresses following standard divisions in colocation racks are available:
¼ rack division - 3 IP addresses
½ rack division – 5 IP addresses
Full 42U rack – 8 IP addresses
In addition, you can get as much as required IPv6 addresses.
