“What are we talking about?”

Knowing what (exactly) it’s about. In the world of colocation, connectivity, rack space and server room, that is certainly a good starting point. Therefore, DC1.AMSTERDAM has created a fixed area for the most important concepts and terminology within the IT world.

Those in the know are well aware of most of the basic concepts surrounding colocation, data centers, rack space and network connectivity. Nevertheless, when it comes to IT services, it is always useful to be able to fall back on exactly what we mean by one or more of the most common terms. To maintain overview; to be consistent in what we are talking about together; and because we work in an interesting and dynamic colocation industry.

A household name in colocation en connectivity

You’re either a household name in colocation, rack space, data centers and connectivity, or you’re not… At DC1.AMSTERDAM, our current and future endeavor is to be just that. Therefore, in our Colocation Glossary, we also explain the related definitions one by one. Always easy and practical; especially if you need to double-check something or to interpret certain specifications (even) better.

Feel free to take a look at the dynamic page where we post new terms with some regularity. On top of the first set of terms that are already there; such as Bandwidth, Colocation, Connectivity, Cloud Connect, Cloud Providers, Data Center, Data Traffic, DSL, FTTH, Full Rack, Gbps, Fiber Optic Connection, Half Rack, Hybrid IT, IPv4, IPv6, IT Infrastructure, kWh, Low Latency, Network, PDU, Private Cage, Private Corridor, Private Suite, Rack, Rack Space, Rack Unit, Redundant Uplink, Redundancy, Router, Server, Shared Colocation, Shared Rack, Uplink, UPS, VRRP and, among others, Business Internet.
