Server Colocation

For clients that want the security and redundancy benefits of a Tier III data center, however do not want to have their servers in a shared cloud environment, RCN Networks offers dedicated and shared server colocation options using Coresite data center facilities. Colocating your equipment in a RCN Networks / Coresite Colocation facility gives you more than just state-of-the-art security and fail-safe provisions – you gain a direct connection to the nation’s largest, NexGen fiber-optic network. Clients have the option to host dedicated physical servers in a private cloud owned and managed by RCN Networks, or by the client hosted in our facility with flexible power, bandwidth and space options available.
