Reliable Server Colocation Services

Do you own a server? If you prefer to own and manage your server (or servers) with your Internet applications, then install it in Sun Hosting's state-of-the-art data center and colocation facility in Montreal, Quebec. We manage and operate data centers in Canada and the United States, as well as in other countries. Sun Hosting's co-location services are cost-effective, and we provide you with a 99.99 percent network uptime guarantee.

Most of our colocation customers manage their own servers and the normal maintenance they require periodically. If needed, Sun Hosting can also offer fully managed colocation services as well. You can even select the exact level of management you need to fit your exact requirements.

    There are many good reasons why you should consider to colocate your server in one of our many data centers. One of them are the benefits of raised flooring.

    Today more than ever, proper air circulation and cooling of servers is important. Whether you are colocating one or over a hundred servers isn't the issue. It's actually how many servers are the people around you colocating?

    In a modern data center, you don’t usually select your neighbors. Should another customer choose to place 25 high capacity servers in the rack in front of yours, there is little a datacenter operator can do without a raised floor environment to keep your equipment running cool at all times.

    To help reduce such a potential issue, choose a facility with raised floor cooling and environmental systems such as we feature in all our colocation centers.

    Another important aspect that you should carefully consider is security. Some data centers choose to provide cabling, power distribution and fiber connectivity throughout their facility in easily accessible overhead racks. At Sun Hosting's colocation centers, all distribution of most of these elements are handled safely and securely beneath the raised floor infrastructure.

    Additionally, all our data centers and colocation racks are always manned at all times by security guards 24/7. It's impossible to even enter the building without a mandatory security card and the proper password. What's more, all our facilities are protected by closed-circuit TV cameras that are recorded and archived on high-capacity video tapes.

    Our servers currently store over 34 Terabytes of storage. On any given day, Sun Hosting delivers over 3.5 Terabytes of data to our client's visitors.

    Also, many data centers today are remotely managed or do not staff adequate network service personnel. Beside the obvious benefit of having these additional resources at the facility for your use, it is very practical to have adequate trained personnel and certified network engineers available should you ever be unable to physically get to the datacenter.

    What's more, never underestimate the importance of adequate fire protection. Most of our data center facilities in Canada feature dry pipe, triple interlock fire suppression systems.

    The actual description of Dry Pipe is somewhat misleading. Should a fire ever occur, those dry-pipes fill with water and proceed to dump all of that onto your hosting and routing equipment, not to mention all of the data center equipment that is intended to support your specific needs such as UPSs and other specialized equipment. At our colocation center in downtown Montreal, Sun Hosting uses dual CO2 and FM200 systems to protect our facility and our customers.
