Colocation allows member institutions to implement offsite backup, and build resilience into their digital systems.
This service allows an institution to rent space in any of RENU’s data centres for the institution’s servers and other computing hardware, at very affordable rates. This facility could be used for safe storage, offsite backup, or any other desired solution. The data centres are highly secure, have extremely high availability for both electricity and network access, and also have world-class cooling. Besides, the institution has unlimited bandwidth for uploads and downloads between the RENU data centres and its campus.
Colocation services profoundly impact RENU member institutions by optimizing IT infrastructure, enhancing reliability, and providing cost efficiency.
Outsourcing server hosting to specialized data centres enables institutions to scale resources flexibly, ensuring reliable and secure network connectivity crucial for research collaborations.
Institutions have benefited from robust security measures, disaster recovery options, and green initiatives.
