Why colocate in a Steadfast data center?

The performance and reliability of your servers depends on a high quality, highly redundant network and data center facility, but creating your own is an expensive, time-consuming process. Colocation gives you the opportunity to run your own hardware in a professionally managed data center, without compromising on control.

Steadfast’s data center colocation offers a choice of SSAE16 and SAS70 compliant sites with 24/7 on-site systems administrators, extensive security, power redundancy, network redundancy, and HVAC redundancy with services backed by a comprehensive service level agreement (SLA). Have the peace of mind that your critical data is safe, secure, and always available.

Colocation Options

Colocation Benefits

For security and control, many people want to run their own dedicated hardware without the ongoing costs of server rental and management. However, building and maintaining a highly redundant and scalable in-house data center and network with the necessary facilities and networking departments can be extremely expensive or nearly impossible.

Colocation allows you to put your servers in our enterprise-grade data centers with highly redundant network connectivity at a fraction of the cost of creating and maintaining your own in-house redundant facilities and network.

In each of our three locations, data center colocation from Steadfast includes:

  • Fully redundant data centers to keep your data online
  • A 100% uptime SLA to guarantee stability
  • Many carrier options, connecting your server to the world
  • Strict environmental controls, improving reliability
  • Free initial server racking
  • Meet regulatory compliance, SSAE16 and SAS70 audited

Our data center at 725 S.
