Data center colocation refers to process of renting out physical space, network bandwidth and other resources by an organization within an existing data center. The process enables sharing of exiting data center resources for deploying and hosting data center services for external organizations. The growing need to expand, move or consolidate data centers is encouraging companies to shift towards colocation services for reducing cost and increasing operational reliability and security.
 

The rising data traffic and the need for efficient systems for managing massive data are encouraging companies to rent out the IT space for their servers and storage devices, driving the data center colocation market growth. In 2013, it was estimated that there were around 2.5 billion internet users globally including 250 million in the U.S. alone. The rising adoption of smartphones and wearable computing technologies in the country is driving the need for real-time data storage, processing, and access facilities. Data center systems are being integrated with sensors, networked capabilities, and IoT technology, offering an additional state of data proliferation. Companies are investing heavily to manage such massive data with in-house data centers. They require services that can allow them to manage their IT devices in a data center space, where management or installation costs are being undertaken by a third-party.
 

Increasing investments in upgrading and transforming traditional or small IT facilities to mega facilities is being witnessed. The construction of new projects and facility modernization are transforming the IT infrastructure framework into highly automated facilities. This has led to an increase in the size and number of electrical devices in an IT environment and in the overall expenses that are involved in maintenance, management, and installation of large-scale facilities. Companies are dependent on these colocation service providers for reducing such expenses. Colocation players help companies by offering IT space and several services such as maintenance and asset management, reducing additional expenses in recruiting IT personnel.
 

Data center solution providers are offering several software technologies and equipment to colocation service providers. The data center colocation industry players are engaged in designing solutions that are specifically designed for service providers. For instance, Schneider Electric SE is offering DCIM, critical facilities management, digital services, and critical power & cooling services. IT room solutions involved in colocation solutions include integrated IT solutions, racks, and enclosures, rack power distribution, UPS, etc. These technology providers are partnering with colocation companies to provide an effective supply of IT devices and solutions in their data center space. Similarly, Nlyte is offering DCIM solutions to colocation providers that will help them to run their data center facilities at peak efficiency.
