IT infrastructure that meets you where you are...

Hybrid Colocation combines data centre hosting with Public and/or Private Cloud, enabling you to choose the right platform for every task – operating ‘workload-first’. While the cloud might be right for some workloads, others need to be retained on physical infrastructure in a data centre – perhaps because you’re dealing with sensitive data or a legacy application that isn’t cloud-compatible.

…And helps you grow

Hybrid Colocation gives you the flexibility to adapt your IT infrastructure as your needs change. You can take advantage of colocation's economies of scale colocation – and the control and security from owning your own hardware – while exploring the opportunities offered by cloud services.

Hybrid IT – An IT system that is a combination of cloud platforms and privately managed IT. Hybrid IT allows you to deploy the most suitable platform for any task.

 

Head in the cloud?

Some say cloud is everyone's future, but a hybrid approach can achieve the performance, control and security you need.

  • Make space for legacy systems - Migrating legacy systems to the cloud can be challenging, but with Hybrid Colocation you can leave legacy applications on your private hardware and integrate them into your cloud platforms.
  • Avoid long-term cost hikes - Public Cloud can be expensive long-term. Hybrid IT gives you the flexibility to control your costs by moving your data to a more cost-effective private IT platform.
  • Choose the security level you need - Cloud requires you to entrust your security to your provider, but some industries have strict security requirements which require privately owned hardware. Hybrid colocation gives you both options.
  • Be ready for the future - No one knows quite what the future holds, so your best approach is a flexible one that enables you to leverage multiple infrastructure platforms to achieve the best fit for every workload.
