Data center colocation services

Maintain control of your hardware, while cutting costs.

Avoid the hassle and cost of running your own data center, while maintaining ownership, control and hands-on access to your compute and storage. With colocation from Rackspace Technology, you can extend or exit your data center, by deploying and managing your infrastructure in our best-in-class facilities.

Colocation allows you to eliminate the capital costs of maintaining the physical aspects of your data center — such as the floor space, electricity supply and air conditioning — while keeping control of your servers, storage, network and security.
