3 Keys to Look for Before Choosing a Data Center Colocation Hosting in India

by Eva Maris Web Hosting
Most contract of data center colocation hosting in India varies from 3 years to 5 years. When it comes to wholesale colocation contract, it varies from 5 years to 15 years. It has been seen that most clients don’t want to change data centers even when they are in a short term contract. This is mainly because of the hassle, cost, and potential downtime associated with the data center change or migration. That’s why it is most prudent of you to choose such a cheap server colocation hosting service that not only meets your potential needs but also has enough equipment for meeting your future needs. 



Keeping these things in mind, there are 3 key things that you should keep in mind for choosing a colocation center –

1.  What is the power density of the colocation center? Is it adequate for supporting your current as well as future technologies?

Reports say power densities of the data centers are increasing at a rapid pace to meet the increasing needs of the newer technologies by the clients. In fact, some of the business clients with huge requirement have been seen to need up to 10kW per cabinet. However, the main problem that most businesses face is the unavailability of adequate power densities for supporting future technologies. This is mainly because of the fact that many data center colocation hosting in India were built before the density boom. That’s the reason why those old data centers are capable of supporting up to 4kW power density per cabinet. In such situations, these colocation data centers resort to two kinds of approaches. While one approach involves distribution of load over larger footprint, the other approach involves implementation of supplemental cooling system.

2.  Are the MSAs (Master Service Agreement) and SLAs (Service Level Agreements) flexible enough?

When the service agreement contracts are penned down, they are done in order to protect the provider. That’s why a business must address these contractual as well as Service level Agreements that are critical to businesses. When a business starts discussions with vendors they must ask their service provider to include verbiage for better protecting their client. In fact, they should also ask for revision option for better protection. In this step, the most common mistake that clients make is the fact that they don’t include the concerns associated with SLA or contractual aspect in the search criteria itself. They wait till vendor selection stage to address this aspect.

3.  Network carrier redundancy

When a data center colocation hosting in India is basically corporation owned, there are small numbers of network carriers that are appointed for providing telecommunications services. So, while searching for a service provider always go for a colocation facility that is carrier neutral. Always try to choose a colo service which comes with wide array of network carrier services, providing connectivity within facility.

While you are in search of a colocation data center in India, keep these three important points in mind.
