Co-location and Managed Hosting – Global Drivers and Constraints


Flexible plans

  • Co-location and managed hosting vendors provide flexible payment structures, suited to every organization's needs
  • Enterprises can choose the plan depending on criticality of application and technical specification of device they propose to proceed with

Minimal latency

  • While the performance of devices is completely outsourced in a managed hosting model, enterprises need not worry about computing performance or the latency involved

Zero downtime

  • The hosting vendors make sure that servers, platforms, and network infrastructure are constantly monitored and ensure that enterprises operate without any downtime
  • Hiring and training an in-house team to manage data centers would prove to be expensive for enterprises

Backup and security

  • Hosting vendors also make sure that data is backed up and safe, even in cases of technical failure or natural disasters
  • Global hosting vendors are capable of securing data and ensuring they adhere to the security guidelines and regulations governing that region/industry


High cost

  • Vendors in the hosting space charge a high fee for managed hosting services, as they take care of end-to-end management activity of data center
  • Organizations need to analyze the applications that should be co-located and managed in-house vs. completely outsourcing to a managed hosting vendor

Reduced flexibility

  • Through managed hosting, organizations will have reduced control over the administrative access of servers
  • Enterprises will have to rely on the hosting provider every time for management activities of a data center
  • As enterprises have ownership only of the data and not of physical device itself, they find it difficult to terminate current agreement with the vendor
