If constant disruptions in your Internet connections are getting in the way of your business growth, http://www.colocationamerica.com has this piece of advice to offer: Try collocation services.
As an experienced colocation provider, Colocation America offers businesses high speed uninterrupted connectivity with more than 200 Tier 1 Internet providers. “Even where reliability is not an issue,” says David Simms, “businesses worldwide are becoming more efficient by opting for colocation. They can focus on growth, instead of having to worry about data-security.”
David Simms says this focus on growth is all the more crucial in view of the competition globalization brings. “It’s no secret that things are tough with newer online companies adding to the competition everyday. And countries like China, with low-priced products and services are upping the stakes. Companies cannot afford downtime costs today. They need to stay online 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to take the competition head on and stay ahead of it. The need for innovative marketing strategies -- cost control has never been so great as it is now. And it’s a trend that will continue in the 21st Century.”
Simms is not the only one thinking along these lines. Terry Simmons, COO of an IT based company faced frequent downtime periods due to Internet disconnections until they opted for collation hosting. “We use collocation services to improve organizational productivity so we can grow -- our losses in previous downtimes were making it impossible to work effectively; we saw our market share slipping away.”
Simmons has also improved the ROI on the company’s IT infrastructure by moving to collocation. “We’re getting more out of our IT systems -- and working more efficiently as a result. Our IT department can support corporate strategies now to accommodate growth. 24 by 7 connectivity means that our customer service is better, our staff more productive, and by moving to a collocation provider, our Internet connection charges are also lower.”
Martha Klaus’s firm, on the other hand, opted for collocation when her mortgage financing company outgrew its IT location. "Our business expanded with government backed loans and the surge in bad credit lending,” says Klaus, “Our marketing strategies paid off -- the loans portfolio doubled within 12 months. We needed an Internet solution that would keep pace with our business. We found a collocation provider that does exactly that.”
But Chuck Walters went for a colocation hosting solution just for his peace of mind. Walters’s financial consulting services firm deals with highly confidential customer data. “We manage investment portfolios for our clients. As part of our customer service, clients can access portfolios and request portfolio changes online. With large accounts on our database, we prefer to diversify the location of our data. We really wouldn’t want anyone to get hold of this kind of sensitive data.”
Colocation providers view the security of customers’ data very seriously. Colocation America’s website, http://www.colocationamerica.com, points out that it uses the latest firewalls, employing state of the art technology tools to guard their customers’ interests.
"We use firewalls and tools like penetration testing and vulnerability association to safeguard client data. Our technical experts employ special techniques to identify problems areas and correct them before the security of our customers’ data is compromised,” says Cara, Lead Designer – of http://www.colocationamerica.com.
To its credit, the company has never had a single breach of its customer data to date. It’s a record the collocation provider intends to keep in coming years.
