Managed colocation services in global locations

Colocation is the perfect solution for businesses that need to tap into multiple geo locations. Colocation provides you with data centre space, power and bandwidth, as well as the flexibility to control your own infrastructure and applications.

Hyve offer colocation services in 35 global data centres, thanks to our partnership with leading data centre specialists, Equinix. Our colocation facilities are based within Tier 3+ facilities. They offer scalable, robust colocation services near main fibre routes and are ultra reliable thanks to our investment in multiple layers of redundancy for networking and power. There is also the option to have several rack units around the world, or in strategic locations.

The main benefits of colocation:

  • Know where your data is physically located
  • Benefit from a redundant network and power, meaning downtime is minimised
  • Control of your infrastructure
  • Greater flexibility
  • Network taken care of by Hyve
  • Superior bandwidth connectivity
  • DR with a fully Managed Colocation service
  • Reduced cost compared to building your own data centre
