Usually, on a dedicated server package, you will be able to see the options of bandwidth, possibility in renting the staffs or you want to manage all these things by yourself.
Collocation server is actually a server that is placed on a safe place that has a good standard of safety and storage server. Usually, this place is called a data center or collocation. Some reasons to place a data on data center are to avoid many things that may disturb and trigger some problems on data existence that is kept on a server because of some problems such as the instability of electricity in supplying the electricity, instability internet connection and instability security system.
If dedicated server gives more simple technical system, it doesn’t happen on a collocated server. What we mean here is that on a collocated server you have to buy everything by yourself such as the switch, firewall, setting and you have to do the installation by yourself. Besides that, you have to rent all the technicians and server experts all by yourself. It means that you need more expensive cost to buy a collocated server, but its worth to do. Collocated server is perfect for a company that has enough budget and resources for managing the server in a long term way. So, it is reasonable enough if we only seen that only the rich and big company that can rent this server. However, they usually had been done some detail count and analysis about all such as the profits that they will get by renting this collocated server. They just want that all that they already done will be equal and will not make the budget and human resources that already used did not have any meaning. The main goal is that they just want to get the profit from this collocation server.
