BEMA can provide a private, secure, virtual colocation service. This virtualization service offers a multitude of benefits that enable IT professionals the ability to grow and extend their network while maintaining the highest level of security. Colocation is the practice of re-locating or renting equipment in an off-site third-party facility. These facilities are typically state-of-the-art datacenters with large internet backbones capable of providing a constant, high-speed internet connection.
The colocation service has many benefits, including reduced costs, improved security and performance, increased availability, reduced management overhead and server provisioning time, simplified budgeting, and built-in disaster recovery. Additionally, computing power and other services can be accessed on demand more efficiently than owning racks of computers and stacks of software that almost never run at peak efficiency.
This cloud computing structure is built on High-speed Internet connectivity, which provides businesses with a cost effective alternative to building and managing their own facility. The BEMA colocation infrastructure offering creates an extremely low-latency and high quality end-user experience designed to maximize a company’s uptime. Additionally, private virtual colocation services can help companies pass important audits such as SAS70, Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPPA, ISO and others.
