Virtual Colocation

Free yourself from the physical

Virtual Colocation Services from SystemMetrics enable you to have your servers hosted in an enterprise-class data center environment without supplying the infrastructure — physical servers, disk storage arrays, and backup solutions — associated with traditional colocation models. To the end user, there is no difference. But to your business, the advantages are numerous.

For one thing, capital costs for the server environment are eliminated completely, as is the worry of maintaining a high-performance, highly-available computing infrastructure. And because servers are virtual, they can be spun up and down nearly instantaneously in response to customer demand.

With our Virtual Colocation Services, you can focus your resources on computing power and service delivery, rather than on space, power leasing and the physical server environment. And you’ll rest assured knowing that your virtual servers are operating within our secure, Class-A data center.
