Colocation

Eliminate risk, increase resilience, maximise security and reduce costs with an LEDC colocation solution.

Our Colocation Services

With more than 30 sovereign data centres being built throughout regional Australia, all built to Tier III standard, Leading Edge Data Centres (LEDC) specifically cater to the growing IT infrastructure demands of regional businesses.

What Does Colocation Mean?

Colocation refers to space in a public data centre built to house an organisation’s data infrastructure, for example:
Racks
Servers
Storage etc.
The data centre offers reliable power, cooling, and security for customers to host equipment in return for a monthly fee. The ‘colocation’ reference is used as typically many businesses use the same data centre, but sometimes a data centre can be built for a single tenant.

Why colocate in a Leading
Edge Data Centre?

Share Cost

By using colocation, organisations share the cost of power, cooling, and data centre floor space with other tenants. It is fundamentally cheaper than building a new, private data centre. The economics of building your own dedicated facility in metro areas have not worked for more than a decade, and now Leading Edge Data Centres is providing the same options in regional Australia.

Less Maintainance
Cost

Organisations can still maintain their equipment as they did on-premises, but with less cost, better uptime and excellent security.

Scale With Ease

Colocation addresses the limitations of an ageing, on-premises data centre. Instead of building a new facility, organisations can simply scale and flex into a local LEDC colocation facility. The higher power requirements of contemporary compute solutions often trigger this move as existing infrastructure is not suitable.

Access to Competitive Service Providers

LEDC enables access to a competitive cloud, carrier and service provider marketplace. Cheaper, more reliable bandwidth. A wide variety of managed services. Digital transformation consultants.

Higher Reliability

Higher reliability means greater uptime. Your local Tier III Leading Edge DC is much more reliable than on-premises infrastructure. Network, power, and cooling system redundancy all lead to a 99.985% SLA uptime.

Maximum Security

LEDC invests in more stringent measures to secure your equipment including CCTV monitoring, two factor Bluetooth/facial recognition access management and fire detection and suppression systems.
