Utropicmedia Network Solutions
The world of business has changed considerably in the last century, and especially since the mid to late 1960s.
A colocation centre (also spelled collocation, colo, or coloc) or carrier hotel is a type of data centre where multiple customers locate network, server and storage gear and interconnect to a variety of telecommunications and other network service provider(s) with a minimum of cost and complexity. Most Internet exchange points provide colocation.
Why choose a colocation provider for your small business, and why Choose Utropicmedia Network Solutions?
With the increasing demands of web-and-internet based business models, not only has the technology gone far beyond what most of us can service ourselves (even with the team of IT experts we keep on payroll); the sheer amount of complex data, storage/access and management/maintenance options has become a logistical nightmare for the small business owner.
Some of the options you may be weighing are maintaining your own server and having it hosted on-site at your business location or carrying your physical equipment to an off-site facility. While in some cases it might be a cheaper option to keep it all ‘at home’, with colocation you have the benefit of more bandwidth and speed at a better price, better security and protection, complete climate control, multiple power back-up systems and the option to have our professional team manage, service or upgrade your account remotely.
By relying on the power of our professional team and facilities you not only get greater performance, speed and reliability, you even get disaster recovery should the worst happen. With Utropicmedia as your colocation provider, you can concentrate on running your business, not hassling with your IT department.
What issues have become important to small businesses today?
Data storage, band-width, speed, the ability to cross-connect and network have become major concerns.
So have security issues. You need to be able to access and manipulate your files and allow access and sharing with designated others, but it’s crucial to keep unauthorized parties out – both physically and through cyber-theft. With the increasingly complex web of sharing and carrier services, peering and power back-up to prevent data-loss, it’s tough to sort out the best options to protect your company data.
Even the temperature and humidity of your facility needs to be carefully regulated and monitored 24/7. Every safeguard and back-up system must be in place as well as meticulously maintained to prevent catastrophic data loss in the event of a natural disaster or power-grid failure.
It’s critical to the life-blood of your small business, where potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars are riding on the right choice. How do you, the small-business owner, cover all the bases expertly without letting your server maintenance usurp time and energy that should be spent seeing to your business itself?
That’s where Utropicmedia can help.
There is strength in numbers.
By bringing your server to our Utropicmedia facility, you piggyback on the strength of a powerful central hub without losing the personalized access and service your business needs.
Some of the services we provide are;
Physical Space Options (Cabinet, Cage or Suite)
No matter if you start with our 1U or a private data suite, you get redundant power to guard against data loss, facility UPS, climate control (HVAC), top notch physical security (you can get in and so can our authorized techs or designated partners, but no one else can), gigabit cross-connects, and our live, responsive dedicated customer service professionals.
Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS)
The importance of not losing power during a natural disaster or power grid failure can’t be emphasized enough. It can mean the very survival of your small business. You don’t want to lose even one bit of data, and power fluctuations can wreak havoc on data storage and integrity. Utropicmedia’s got your back with redundant back-up power safeguards including facility UPS.
