Is it collocate or co locate? But the Oxford Dictionaries website spells it “colocate” in American English and “co-locate” in British English. For Yanks, the sharing of a location is “with someone (or something) else.” For Brits, it’s only “with something else.” The verb is intransitive, though, on both sides of the Atlantic, according to Oxford.
What colocation means? A colocation facility, or colo, is a data center facility in which a business can rent space for servers and other computing hardware. Typically, a colo provides the building, cooling, power, bandwidth and physical security, while the customer provides servers and storage.
Is Colocate hyphenated? The verb co-locate is sometimes spelled without a hyphen: colocate (especially in the United States).
How do you spell co-location? This word has only been around since the sixties and hyphens are almost always problematic. In actual usage, we found that the hyphen spelling is found in and outside the United States and is, in fact, the more preferred form. The noun form is colocation or co-location.
