The Need for Co-Location

In today's data-driven environment, it can be difficult for many businesses to keep up with the staggering increase in digital assets. Businesses like yours have servers, storage, and networking equipment to supply their growing business needs. With this need comes cost. Instead of paying an arm and a leg for the capital expenditures necessary to run your business, consider using co-location to solve your problem.

Co-Location is simply moving your infrastructure components into a secure facility where someone else provides the secure space, connectivity, power, and cooling for your equipment. Charlotte is ranked as the 2nd largest banking center in the US. With such designation comes many options for co-location services from multiple providers. Let TelWare help you navigate the viable options for your business.
