The Benefits of Keeping Your Servers in a DC

The Benefits of Keeping Your Servers in a DC

A Data Centre is used to house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications and storage systems. A Data Centre is a facility that centralises an organisation’s shared IT operations and equipment for the purposes of storing, processing, and disseminating data and applications. Because they house an organisation’s most critical and proprietary assets, data centres are vital to the continuity of daily operations. Outsourcing a data centre is a growing trend in the IT industry. Organisations today are now reaping the financial and operational benefits of choosing to co-locate their data. With Stratus Technologies, you can too.

Some of the benefits of a DC include:

  • Owned hardware
  • Customised setups
  • Security on-site
  • Reduced power cost
  • Resilience in the event of outages
  • Half rack options
  • Full protection from over heating and fire


The security and reasurance of a data centre is major. Security systems such as CCTV, alarms and electronic shutters provide a safe environment for your colocation. Resilient power in the case of outages means your servers won’t even faulter if the mains power goes out.

Because we are wholesalers, we can offer very favourable rates for your co-location requirements. As with our leased lines, we’ve got the best deals on the market and our fantastic service is there to top it off. With hourly service plans, volume discounts and 30-minute billing increments, partners are able to decrease their cost of infrastructure management. We’ve always got great deals on our data centre facilities.
