Colo Service Providers Near To San Jose,california
Apr 12, 2007
I require information regarding colo service providers near to San Jose,california.I require high bandwidth for my work so that would be a major concern and also the cost should be affordable. Does anyone have any direct experience with the colo providers there?
I've been looking to colo a couple servers (total of 3U and 10mbit commit) in the San Jose/San Francisco area and calling around I'm getting quotes of around $1500. These quotes seem ridiculous to me--in pretty much every other market I am used to paying a little over a tenth of that--but sales guys just stand firm and say they are impacted.
Where can I find shared colo for reasonable prices in the San Jose/San Francisco area?
I don't think my requirements are really that out there--I need a mix of level3 and something else other than cogent.
I was wondering if anyone knew a cheap colo that is in Southern California. I am hoping to be paying under $150 month (if possible) but no more than $200 month and I need something that allows atleast 3-4 TB of transfer/month (More would be a big plus).
I currently get colo for free with the company I work for but I won't be with them forever and I would like to have a backup plan if I have to ever move my server somewhere else.
Northern california and other places near socal (arizona, etc...) *might* be ok but I would really prefer somewhere that I can drive to if need be.
The server is a regular 1U server with two HD's with a conroe based xeon 2.4 GHz dual core processor. Its power consumption shouldn't be that high.
To be honest I would love to have it colo'd at a place like fdcservers.net as I had a really good experience with the 1.5 years or so I had a dedicated server with them before getting free colo at work but the one thing I didn't like was its in Chicago so latency is high (I like to run game-servers).
I don't have much experience with co-location although I have used a lot of dedicated servers so finding a dedicated provider isn't usually a problem for me.
I work for a small financial service provider and we are currently designing a new server side application for which we are now evaluating colo options. The service will employ direct connectivity to several exchanges (NYSE/Arca, ISE, Nasdaq, etc.). So, one point is the cost of connecting to other data centers.
Our bandwidth consumption is pretty low (<1Mbps), however we do require the lowest possible latencies.
To begin with, we only need about 6u but as most centers require a half rack min, we might do that just as well.
Also, we need 24/7 on-site support in case of emergencies. The facility should be very professional, with minimal down time and high security.
I want to develop a package for Parallels Plesk Automation to introduce some services like backup email, database, websites. I want to know whether it is possible with Parallels Plesk Automation and if so any links to developers site/documentation.
I've read quite a few good reviews about ColoCrossing. Most are related to their Chicago datacenter. I was wondering if anyone has experience with their other locations, specifically, San Jose and Atlanta.
As the title says, I need a VPS host in San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose area. Here's the catch though, the ARIN/WHOIS record for the host server absolutely must reflect that location due to the nature of our application.
Please give me the difference. Colo in carrier hotel, we can choose our preferred network provider, but should we do that if we cannot have our own tech in datacenter? How about the supporting service from carrier hotel? Just general question, cause I dont address exactly which facility.
And the second would be more expensive? Saying the same number of rack, amount of bandwidth... Who is providing IP addresses then?
I live in Hawaii and half my sites serve Hawaii. Webhosts in Hawaii are really expensive. Does it matter where on the mainland US that I host my sites? Would they serve the fastest if I host them in California considering it's the closest to Hawaii?
We're currently in need of a reliable provider in California. We're currently using ServerBeach and their LA data center but we're having major issues with their service and support (highly recommend staying away from them at all costs).
Normally we go through referrals from other data centers but we're having a hard time locating a solid provider in the California area.
to fire up a P4 in California to target Asia. GBLX or Sprint or AT&T transit is a must. The usage for this server would be a ~7mbps average with 5 hour daily bursts up to 20mbps(comes out to around 2300GB).
PacificRack seemed perfect for my needs, but won't answer sales emails...I've read good things, but i'm worried about signing up.
My budget is around $200, this shouldn't be a problem right?
