  • Colocation or Cloud

    Hi Team,

    I am currently using cloud hosting services for my ecommerce business. But as I can read at a couple of websites, some businesses have started moving towards colocation as it seems to be quite helpful in expanding the business. I want to know when is the right time to switch to colocation services?

    Hello Angelina,

    Welcome to the forum first of all.

    Well, the Cloud and Colocation are two entirely different concepts of hosting. Where the Cloud is enabled by virtualization and involves a cluster of servers connect together in a network, whereas Colocation involves colocation of hardware infrastructure which is owned by you to a datacenter facility.

    I'm not really sure about what you mean by expanding business, but one thing is for sure, both the solutions can very well support the growing needs of a business. If you could please specify the needs of business we'd be in a better position to suggest an appropriate solution.

    Looking forward to your response.

      Hi Stan,

      What I mean by expanding businesses is growing the resources. What if my data is growing rapidly, can I expand the storage space? Also, you need to purchase own equipments and manage them on your own so, it might be quite expensive.
