Colocation for Non-USC Customers

USC Information Technology Services offers colocation services in its state-of-the-art data center, where cabinets can be leased to house computer hardware to select external organizations affiliated with the university. The ITS colocation facility is housed in a modern data center within a protected USC campus building controlled by multiple layers of security, including 24/7 Department of Public Safety security guard patrol and multiple electronic-controlled doorways. Final access to the colocation rooms require biometric (fingerprint) controlled access provided only to registered colocation customers.
