Why you should choose SyntaxPhoenix for colocation

A professional IT infrastructure should be at the heart of every company. At least in times of Industry 4.0 and the ongoing need for IT solutions, it is important to set the course for a modern IT infrastructure. However, resources and budget are not always sufficient for the operation of an own data center - exactly here the colocation of the hardware in an external data center is recommended. However, this requires above all competence and security on the part of the colocation provider in order to be able to guarantee smooth operation of the IT infrastructure.

SyntaxPhoenix offers you just that - modern, secure data centers for the smooth operation of your hardware. For our colocation, we rely on data centers, which are particularly impressive in terms of fail-safety and physical security. All data centers for our colocation areas are therefore equipped with a redundant, uninterruptible power supply and physical security measures in the form of in the form of multiple security gates, access controls and camera surveillance. We also rely on the highest standards of fire protection, and all of our colocation spaces are equipped with early fire detection systems and redundant gas extinguishing systems. In addition, all our data centers are ISO 27001 certified.

Our data centers


For your colocation you have the option to use our network or to build your own network with the help of appropriate crossconnects. With our own network, we rely on fail-safety to offer you the highest possible availability. For this reason, we rely on brand-name hardware from Juniper and lay out all systems redundantly.

Externally, our network is redundantly connected with over 750 Gbit/s via several major carriers such as RETN and Cogent.

Frequently asked questions about colocation

What is Colocation?

The term colocation, also called server housing or simply housing, defines the accommodation of a physical server in an external data center. In contrast to a dedicated server, the actual hardware belongs to the customer; the provider merely provides the space, infrastructure and electricity.
When operating servers, companies are bound by legal regulations regarding security. In addition, there should also be as little downtime as possible and a good connection of the servers. Many companies cannot provide this at their company location, whether due to cost reasons for redundant UPS and air conditioning systems or also a good connection, which is often not available in rural regions. Therefore, many medium-sized companies rely on colocation data centers. These are often located in central regions, such as the Rhine-Main region, in order to offer the highest possible connections and low latencies. In addition, they have the necessary infrastructure.
Colocation costs depend on the devices housed, the bandwidth used and the traffic. Depending on the provider, colocation costs basically consist of traffic, uplinks, power consumption and the height units. In our offers, the costs for power consumption are also divided into two points (power consumption + power provision). The power supply defines the power consumption, which is used for for air conditioning and other technical services. Contrary to other operators, your costs are thus better, more comprehensible and more clearly staggered.
