colocation cooperative

Postby orion » Tue Aug 30, 2011 11:06 am

I have a bunch of servers in a remote colo that i would like to bring back into the cities but they do not justify a full cabinet yet. Is there anyone else here that has servers they would like to move and share the cost.

How do you mean? I'd like to have a server at a Colo. Wouldn't need more than 6u. Unmetered or 95th percentile billing bandwidth would be preferable...

I think he's looking to offset the $x00 dollar a month charge for a full rack at a col-lo site.
I'd like to hear how much space you have left and how much a month it would require. The bandwidth costing plan would be good to know too.

After looking at some local solutions i am going to stay in Kansas but would still like to share a rack. Single Server 1U - 4U, or Mid-Tower 5 included IP’s 1.5TB of Bandwidth 100Mb connection or 10Mb unmetered (extra $25 /month) for 50$ a month. I am installing 2X quad core servers with 32gb ram running xenserver at $350 /month. whole server or a piece of one are available.

If there is interest i am likely driving down there next month to do an upgrade on the nas and can bring servers down to rack.

Update I have been in talks with my boss, he is looking into a real fiber connection at the office to service our customers and he is toying with the idea of doing budget DC here. I think he is looking at the 50$/u mark or less, anyone interested in such an option.
