A colocation centre (also spelled collocation, colo, or coloc) or carrier hotel is a type of data center where colocation services are provided. Colocation allows multiple customers to locate network, server, and storage gear- and connect them to a variety of telecommunications and network service providers- with a minimum of cost and complexity. Most Internet exchange points provide colocation.
