Colocation Pricing Factors

dedicated-serversOur Colocation pricing offers you the flexibility you need to harness the power and reliability of the Data Center while providing your own equipment or leasing something from us.

Server colocation pricing is generally based on three factors including the number of rackspace units required, the amount of power required and the amount of bandwidth required.

  • RACK SPACE – To determine the number of rack space units you need, you have to calculate it based on the total profile of the servers and network equipment you plan to store in the datacenter. One rackspace unit (1U) is equivalent to 1.75″ in height.
  • POWER – To determine your power consumption, you need to determine how many power supplies at 110V your servers and other equipment contain and multiply that by the wattage of each. You will need approximately 1 Amp for every 110 Watts of power. Click here to calculate.
  • BANDWIDTH – To determine bandwidth, you need to calculate how much data transfer you will expect over a given month. You will get approximately 700 GB of transfer per month for every 1 Mbps in bandwidth you have allocated. Click here to calculate.

All colocation pricing and services include the ability to connect to your servers with keyboard, monitor, mouse as well as remote hands. All facilities include remote hands services and onsite server management and related professional services.

Colocation Pricing Options

There are four common options for purchasing cabinet and rack space within the datacenters:

  • Single Server – The single server options allows for up to 2U rackspace in a shared, vented, locking enclosure and is not offered in all datacenter facilities. It is the most convenient option for moving any single server out of the office and into a full service datacenter.
  • Quarter Cabinet – The quarter cabinet is a 10U (18″) private or shared, vented, locking enclosure and is not offered in all datacenter facilities. It is generally the smallest size in which you can rent colocation services and is often provided by dividing up a full cabinet.
  • Half Cabinet – A half cabinet is a 21U (36.75″) private or shared, vented, locking enclosure that is just over half the size of a full cabinet. Just as with the full cabinet, a half cabinet will come furnished with a power distribution unit (PDU), however the customer is expected to provide any rack rails or shelves needed to organized their equipment inside the cabinet as well as any ethernet cables required for networking the equipment.
  • Full Cabinet – The full cabinet is a 42U (73.5″) private, vented, locking enclosure that is used to store all of your servers. The cabinet will come furnished with a power distribution unit (PDU), however the customer is expected to provide any rack rails or shelves needed to organized their equipment inside the cabinet as well as any ethernet cables required for networking the equipment.
