What are Your Biggest Concerns When You Choose a Colocation Facility?


What are the most important things you look for when choosing a colocation facility?

If one facility had a more powerful infrastructure, yet another one had easier setup and better support, which one would you sign a contract with?

Yes, you are right. It depends on what the business operation needs.

Thank you for your response.

In regards to tier level, my thoughts were that different tiers correspond to different needs. An enterprise which can have its needs met in a Tier 3 facility, is it not unnecessary expenditure to spend significantly more for a Tier 4 facility?

Hi, I believe you should focus in; 1) Tier Level of the Datacenter (the highest the better), 2) Physical location of the datacenter (region with no natural events like tornados, earthquakes, hurricanes), 3) As potential customer, you must verify on site, the data center facilities and validate the security controls.
