We offer two ways to utilize our data centers:

Managed Colocation:

Paranet delivers the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your dedicated servers, devices, and applications are secured in our data center, connected to a fully monitored network, and managed 24/7 by Microsoft Certified Support Engineers. With managed services, you will never again need to update, upgrade, back up, patch, monitor, or troubleshoot your network. With a comprehensive managed services relationship, we do that for you. Managed colocation solutions are ideal for companies that:

  • May or may not have their own IT staff
  • Require engineering support to maintain their hosted IT equipment
  • Require full or partial IT management support including server management, proactive monitoring, and electronic backup of critical data

Unmanaged Colocation:

Unmanaged Colocation offers many business advantages. It enables you to own and maintain your own servers while we provide a secure redundant environment and maintain the network, power, and connectivity needed

Having the right network environment is critical to your business success. However, owning and operating your own data center may be cost prohibitive. We offer both fixed and usage based pricing that is not only cost effective but may provide additional monitoring, services, and security beyond what you have available. Unmanaged Colocation services are ideal for companies that:

  • Own or manage their own equipment
  • Require 99.999 percent uptime assurance and redundancy
  • Want to avoid the costs of building a full data center
  • Have their own IT staff and want access to complimentary engineering services
