What is the difference between a data center and a colocation? A data centre is a purpose-built facility designed to efficiently store, power, cool and connect your IT infrastructure. Colocation is one of many services data centres provide, and is the act of hosting your IT hardware (like servers) outside of your premises and in a data centre.
How much does data center space cost? The price of a ¼ rack of space in most data centers can range from $300 to $500 a month, with space in more centrally located data centers typically costing substantially more.

- Floor space.
- WAN redundancy.
