    A server, usually a Web server, that is located at a dedicated facility designed with resources which include a secured cage or rack, regulated power, dedicated internet connection, security and support. These colocation facilities offer the customer a secure place to physically house their hardware and equipment as opposed to locating it in their offices or warehouse where the potential for fire, theft or vandalism is much greater.

    Most colocation facilities offer high-security, including cameras, fire detection and extinguishing devices, multiple connection feeds, filtered power, backup power generators and other items to ensure high-availability which is mandatory for all Web-based, virtual businesses. Colocation sites are being erected at various points around the world to provide services to the rapidly expanding Web hosting and e-commerce marketplace. The term colocation is also known as colo.

    Colocating the server gives you the greatest flexibility. You get to choose the hardware configuration of the server and the software that goes on it. The hosting company maintains the connection to the Internet and deals with environmental details such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs), fire controls, and air conditioning. On the other hand, you're responsible for that server's upkeep

    The moving or placing things together, sometimes implying a proper order. This term derived from collocation and often spelled "co-location", is used to mean the provision of space for a customer's telecommunications or computer equipment at the service provider's premises.

    A colocation (colo) is a data center facility in which a business can rent space for servers and other computing hardware. It is important for an organization to closely examine their colo's service level agreements (SLAs) so as not to be surprised by hidden charges.
