Many of the businesses that CyberLynk deals with on a daily basis wonder how colocation can help reduce operating expenses and increase server uptime. Businesses that host servers within their office for email, websites, customer accessed applications and anything where users from the public Internet would be accessing are good candidates for colocation.
Many businesses are not aware that hosting applications onsite could actually be hurting your business. The biggest bottle neck is the Internet connection to your office and power reliability. The slow download and upload speeds of your Internet connection greatly affect how many customers can access your servers and network at one time. What happens when that one Internet connection goes down? Do you have a redundant Internet connection that takes over? Or when the power goes out? You probably have a UPS (battery backup) in place but what happens when the power is out longer then the battery will power the servers and networking equipment?
CyberLynk’s Milwaukee Datacenter provides constant UPS battery power to your servers and failover generator power to ensure that your servers are always connected to the Internet. The datacenter has multiple large Internet connections that are fully redundant and if one connection has a problem the other automatically take over. The state of the art fire suppression system will ensure that your data and equipment is protected.
