As the internet continues to grow, so does colocation!

The “Internet of Things” (IOT) is now a reality due to the advancement of technology. Almost everything we do now days is in some way connected to or connected through the internet, from computers, phones, watches, vehicles, televisions, smart devices, household devices to control possessions in your home like lighting, thermostat, security systems and so on. IoT is here to stay.


With the expansion of businesses worldwide and going online to do business, the demand to be efficient and using more data than ever before means that nearly everyone is relying upon the internet. Nearly everyone has an interaction at least once a day if not more, which means the IoT is getting to be an everyday task for most people and companies.

According to Data Center Knowledge, IoT is growing so much that corporate data centers are under pressure to keep up. A recent study by Cisco illustrated the rapid increase in demand for data center connectivity. Traffic to data center facilities has increased by a very significant amount. It’s only expected to increase even more.

Businesses must be connected 24/7/365, have real-time ability; it’s about being quick, dynamic and connected. This is pushing the limits of what businesses currently have in place.

Data Center colocation is the way to go, playing a key role in storage capacity, consistent connectivity and able to quickly handle unexpected issues that arise. Data center facilities can erase the headaches of any IT issue or related matter.
