The Benefits of Colocation over On-Premises
A recent report by INAP showed 9 in 10 organizations will move workloads off premises by 2022. Why is this? Aside from cost, the benefits are enormous:
- Improved network performance
- Higher availability
- Increased application scalability
- Eliminating compliance issues
- Expanded infrastructure security
With two cabinets in a Tier III data center, here is the price estimation contrast for a three year period. Estimate based of how much you would spend with a new in-house build versus colocation, via The Cloud Calculator.
Don’t Want to Deal with Your Hardware Anymore and Manage Your Server Remotely?
Our bare metal servers offer you the ability to ditch the hardware you own and move to a Hardware-as-a-Service model where we manage the hardware while still delivering you the full hardware usage, but without the contract.
More importantly, HostDime deploys Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) so your server can be managed REMOTELY from anywhere in the world. We offer many OS flavors including Windows and almost all Linux distributions. With remote access you can install any workload you need to on any of the server offerings. IPMI is included at no additional charge on our servers.
IPMI provides better server management via hardware applied directly into the server’s motherboard and accessible through your CORE client portal. Unlike most vendors that require a hardware key or software, all HostDime’s motherboards include dedicated KVM-over-IP functionality.
What Else is HostDime Doing to Help?
Lastly, we want to highlight those who are currently working at our global data centers. While our sales staff is operating normally from home right now, we are considered a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security. This means that data center operators, including system admins, security, IT managers, data transfer specialists, software and hardware engineers, and database administrators are on-site and ready to help. We applaud our staff and all other IT workers who are playing an essential role in helping businesses staying online and keeping the public connected.
Cleaning is being doubled up and we are providing an environment that our staff can be confident is safe for them to work in. For colocation clients coming to the data center, there are precautions taken to ensure the safety of our clients and data center staff.
These are uncertain times, but we are confident we will navigate this together and come out the other end stronger. We’re here to help; please don’t hesitate to message us with any special requests you might have!
