What are the benefits of Colocation Hosting?

"Colocation or RackSpace Rental" is a popular alternative to traditional hosting. It offers the clients with the physical structure these companies need for their hosting solutions. 

The name “colocation” refers to the fact that many servers are “housed” in the same space securely under expert monitoring. This is ideal for any size of the company, as it essentially gives them the capacity to quickly scale up or down their servers with only scaling the rental payments.

All the equipment i.e, Servers, routers or any other hardware is client owned totally secure and private. The colocation company can maintain all the equipment for a small monthly cost as well.

Why this service is cheap or cost effective:
