Colocation is a solid choice for a growing number of companies. Being able to use a reliable provider’s network, servers, and storage equipment can help reduce costs and complexity. However, scalability can sometimes be an issue. Today, many companies are embracing the ease and flexibility of the cloud, using it to augment their colocation infrastructure whenever demand exceeds capacity. However, there are many businesses and industries that are required to meet strict security standards that have been extremely cautious about utilizing cloud-based services. They worry about data protection and about ever-growing compliance regulations that industry-specific or board-driven. Complex and compliant managed hosting provider Carpathia Hosting has introduced a solution for this rapidly growing segment of businesses. The company’s IBX Vault data center -- a 64,000 square foot, 7.3-megawatt facility located in the Washington D.C. area – has a secure, private-fiber connection, providing direct access to 200-plus networks, carriers, and ISPs with armed on-site security guards 24x7. There is finally an option for those who may need colocation services as well as cloud options that meet strict security and compliance requirements.
