The data center colocation market includes the practice of providing data center space and infrastructure, including power, network bandwidth, physical security, and cooling component on lease to end-users. Based on customer requirement, these facilities are categorized into two major types – retail colocation and wholesale colocation. Retail colocation offers the option to rent space, racks, and cages, whereas wholesale colocation involves the leasing of entire rooms and facilities to place IT equipment. Datacenter colocation services reduce the overall IT cost of enterprises, which is expected to drive the growth of the data center colocation market.
