You can carry in your equipment which is hence necessary, colocate. Many more advantages! Shop for best prices and safeguards.

It depends...

What are you trying to gain by colocating?

There are alot of reasons to colocate, and then there are reasons on why not.

If you fall into the category of that you need high bandwidth and availability, then colocate.

If you just want to colocate so that you don't have to store servers at your location, then don't.

You also have to look at how are you going to manage your servers. Are you going to get pvt lines into the colo. Is the colo also going to act as a ISP for your local network, or is it strictly for server's.
