3 reasons to invest in colocation

If you're a small- or medium-sized business owner, colocation makes a lot of sense. Here's why:

Double exposure of businessman shows modern technology as concepConstructing a server room is both time-consuming and expensive. If you’re the owner of a small- or medium-sized business and want to stay out of debt, consider colocation. Colocation allows you to house all of your servers and computer hardware in a secure, off-site location. The colocation provider (in this case, Broadline Solutions) offers physical security, power and cooling components to keep your operation running smoothly.

There are many reasons colocation is advantageous, but we’d like to highlight three, in particular:

1.) Monitoring at all times of the day and night. In the 21st-century world of business, everything’s online. Your website needs to operate at full capacity no matter the time of the day or night. This is especially true now that the majority of Americans are working and doing business from home. Our colocation services provide an overview of your systems 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you lose connectivity at any time, we’re there, on-call to get you back up and running.

2.) Keep cyberattacks at bay. Connectivity is important, but so is security. It’s crucial that your equipment and servers are protected from malware and ransomware. One compromised piece of code or misplaced password could shut down your website for weeks or even months at a time. At Broadline Solutions, our colocation services go above and beyond. By keeping all of your software updated with the latest versions, you’ll never have to worry about losing proprietary business data or your customers’ information.

3.) Backups in the event of a disaster. Our colocation services include automatic backups. We copy and store all of your business data to make sure you’re protected in the event of a disaster. Accidents and server malfunctions can happen at any time. Protecting your information provides peace of mind.
