What to consider before choosing a Colocation plan

Power consumption

Before picking a Colocation plan, you should know how much power your server consumes, based on your current usage. In case you are not aware of the size of this metric, let us know what the model of your server is and what software it runs, in order to make the estimation for you.

Privately owned rails

For your server’s installation on our racks, it is necessary that you own the suitable rails and send them to the data center along with your server. The wiring needed for the server’s connection and power supply are provided by Top.Host.

Front-to-back Airflow

It is necessary that the power supply and the network connectivity ports are placed on the back of your equipment.

Dual power supply

It is not necessary, but it is suggested that your server comes with dual power supply. In that way your server will keep functioning in the event of a PSU failure or a scheduled power outage.

Is Colocation the solution you needed?

F.A.Q.

What is Colocation and when should I choose it?

Colocation Hosting services offer a secure environment for privately owned hardware (such as servers or network appliances) in a modern data center infrastructure. This happens by renting out physical rack space, but also a number of services that include power supply and network.

It is the ideal solution for companies that host their servers on their premises and realise at some point, that their needs for availability, security and performance are highly increased. And while there is the alternative of setting up an in-house infrastructure for the servers’ appropriate operation, its management and maintenance could prove extremely expensive.

Colocation offers the solution to exactly this problem. The company is relieved of the burden of maintaining infrastructure and can invest on its strategic growth.

So, does your business run privately-owned equipment with high demands on power supply, traffic and network speed from its establishment? Then Colocation is ideal for you, in order to be hosted in a high-tech environment without expenses on infrastructure.

In which data center will my server be hosted?

Your server will be hosted in the state-of-the-art data center of Lamda Hellix, in Athens. It is one of the biggest and reliable data centers in Greece with which Top.Host has built a dynamic collaboration.

The data center provides redundant cooling and power systems and a personnel of certified engineers, who ensure the smooth and uninterrupted operation of the hosted equipment. In addition, the data center has been certified with Tier III, ISO 27001 and PCI-DSS standards. It also uses multiple digital and physical security layers to ensure your that your data and infrastructure are always protected.
