ColoSpace: A leading provider of Data Center, Cloud and Managed IT Services


Data Center Outsourcing (DCO) is the allocation of all or portions of the day-to-day responsibilities of managing servers to a specialist third-party service provider. The DCO may be an annual or multi-year contract in which the data center service provider offers professional and product support services to ensure that the customer’s data center runs efficiently. Outsourcing a data center allows an organization to free up resources, reduce and control costs, and access resources not available internally such as equipment, processes, expertise, space, power and cooling. The ever-changing computing and data platforms, and the integration of numerous functions, require companies to implement flexible data centers capable of accommodating all these requirements. This, in terms of infrastructure and support measures, can be challenging to organizations without the capacity.

DCO allows a company to realize its business value at ready-to-run, cost-effective computing power and capacity, which can be customized to meet the company’s business needs as well as accommodate any changing needs.
