FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about Deft Colocation, a service that powers your IT gear in the optimal operating environment.

It’s like sending your IT infrastructure to the Ritz Carlton of hardware hotels.

Why do I need Deft for colocation?

You don’t. But if you want your IT gear running smoothly no matter what type of Apocalypse is going on outside, then Deft is your best bet.

Why haven't I heard of Deft?

Up until 2021, we went by ServerCentral — but you probably haven’t heard that name, either. We fly under the radar by design. You don’t need to know us, but we guarantee you know our customers. And they’ll never make the headlines for a Deft-caused outage.

Can Deft step in if we need emergency support?

Always. Our Remote Hands team is on-site and ready to help 24/7/365. We stock every replacement part you could ever need in every data center, too.
