Colocation

Host Your IT in Our Data Centers

Our Bellevue Data Center

As our name implies, colocation, the placement of a company’s IT infrastructure within one of our data centers, is Colocation Northwest’s core product. We are one of the largest and most respected providers of colocation in Western Washington and the Pacific Northwest.

Our users range from small businesses to government entities to internationally renowned technology and gaming giants. Every customer receives our inviolable commitment to excellence and service.

As a regional company with diverse experts and resources, Colocation Northwest delivers services that cookie-cutter colocation providers cannot or will not make available.

What Is Colocation?

Power, Cooling, Connectivity, Space, Security

Colocation Northwest operates eight multi-tenant data centers: four in downtown Seattle’s Westin Building Exchange, the regional carrier hotel, and one each in South Hill Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue and Redmond. Inside these facilities we provide appropriate space, power, cooling and connectivity.

By distributing utilities expenses, Colocation Northwest can offer high-quality, cost effective colocation. This delivers cost savings to enterprise companies that would otherwise have to operate their own data centers.

For small and medium sized businesses, colocation places secure, reliable data center technology within reach. This offers an attractive alternative to on-premises server cabinets, which are subject to power outages, cooling limits and high-latency connectivity. Keeping your IT equipment in a well-maintained data center may extend its life, which can generate cost savings.

In addition to ample utilities, data centers provide the security and redundancy needed to ensure constant, uninterrupted uptime. This includes backup power, cooling and connectivity, physical security to prevent unauthorized entrances, and safety equipment like fire suppression.

Colocation users may service their own equipment by visiting our data centers or contract with Colocation Northwest to provide managed services. Because our technicians and engineers specialize in hardware servers and networking gear, many users find that our monitoring and maintaining their equipment perfectly complements their IT team.

Types of Colocation

Colocation Northwest offers three levels of service: retail, enterprise and hybrid. We can host multi-megawatt enterprises as admirably as we take care of our single server customers.

Retail Colocation

Retail colocation customers lease anywhere from single server space to multiple cabinets. The base price is fixed, determined by space and power needs. Additional fees apply for Managed Services like monitoring, maintenance and repairs.

Businesses that use retail colocation include:

  • Small businesses operating websites
  • Emerging startups with private, hybrid and multi-cloud needs
  • Enterprise organizations performing high-density computing, storing sensitive data or running legacy applications

Wholesale Colocation

Colocation Northwest offers wholesale colocation to companies that require from several cabinets to entire data centers. Unlike retail colocation clients, wholesale colocation users often pay for utilities based on usage.

At the same time when cloud computing is becoming ubiquitous, real estate costs are skyrocketing. This makes the construction or operation of company-owned or on-premises data centers prohibitive. However, not all applications can run in the cloud. Certainly, some data should not be kept in non-owned storage. This is why the demand for colocation is growing swiftly, keeping pace with cloud computing.

Companies that use wholesale colocation seek:

  • To operate legacy applications
  • Compliance with regulations like data sovereignty laws
  • High-density and high-volume computing
  • Processing large-volume datasets
  • To develop large-scale cloud provider services

Hybrid Colocation

Because of our skilled and experienced IT team, many clients make Colocation Northwest their IT team’s IT team. To monitor and service hardware and networking infrastructure, hybrid colocation users combine wholesale-sized colocation with managed services. They forego the necessity and expense of employees.

Because our IT services range from initial assessments to deployment to maintenance, Colocation Northwest makes it easy to select the managed services your organization needs.

Some hybrid colocation uses are:

  • Wholesale-sized operators requiring infrequent maintenance
  • International companies needing a computing presence in the USA
  • Businesses with remote backups or disaster recovery IT far away from their staff
