Server colocation is an outstanding way of controlling your hardware and rationalizing the cost because companies invest and own the hardware and outsource the power and bandwidth management by renting some space in the data center. Following are some important consideration before getting a colocation:
You will buy and deploy the hardware.
Colocation pricing is always based on Rack Capacity, Bandwidth & Power.
Setup fees are another important consideration you will have to keep in mind.
Colocation normally comes without support and you will have to manage remote as well as onside troubleshooting
Speed and latency will play a key factor but when you are serving your customers in Pakistan, any local colocation will always be a great option as you will get lowest possible latency.
