July 26, 2017

Thinking about moving your IT infrastructure to a colocation Vietnam? Congrats! It’s a big step, but it is well worth it.

In order to benefit from colocation (colo) services, though, you need to know how to choose the right provider. This means having a thorough understanding of what sets a superior colo apart from the rest. In order to determine which colo is right for your business, we suggest shopping around, doing research and scheduling a tour of your prospect’s facility. Throughout this process, you should be on the lookout for several factors that indicate that the colo is a winner.

Security

Once you have established that a collocation in Vietnam is at a low risk for being slammed by a natural disaster, it is time to evaluate its other means of security. When you visit a data center (DC), you should be impressed by the lengths that it goes to protect its colocated customers’ environments. Firstly, the building itself should be designed to withstand blasts from bombs and bullets, and should be free from easy access points, like windows, in areas where data is housed. Secondly, the building should be under the constant watch of highly trained and skilled security officers. Not only should this security personnel patrol the facility, but they should also be in charge of various checkpoints throughout the building. Finally, all of this should be backed up with CCTV monitoring.

Power

Be on the lookout for a colocation Vietnam Hanoi which offers sufficient and sustainable power for continuous critical systems uptime around – the – clock. This should be done in a way that is environmentally responsible, being committed to energy efficiency.

Certifications

An excellent colo can offer proof that they are reliable and sustainable for the long-term. One of the most telling indicators of a colo’s reputation and reliability is a Tier III Gold Certification. This coveted certification is only bestowed upon a few DCs throughout the world. The Uptime Institute will only certify a facility as Tier III “Gold” if it is able to pass an intensive assessment of its management and operations. This includes an evaluation of the facility’s location, its physical security, capacity, availability, functionality and operational sustainability.
