1/2 Cabinet Or Full Cabinet

Jun 29, 2007

Just wanted to get some opinions. I assume you are trying to colo, and you will fill 1/2 rack in 1 year. I have two options:

1. Get 1/2 rack, 20amps first and get another one when full.
2. Get full rack, 20amps and add 20amps later.

The first one will save $250/mo. The second one will give you redundancy and privately your rack/cabinet.

Cabinet Configuration

Aug 16, 2007

Lets assume I have the following equipment Hardware Firewall, Switch, 1U KVMoIP, 1U server and a 0U APC Switchable Power strip.

So there is 1 FastE ethernet drop.


Switch -> KVMoIP
-> APC
-> Server

Of course, then


My question is, which comes first after the FastE drop, firewall then switch or vice-versa?

Cabinet At PAIX

Apr 23, 2007

providers who might have a cabinet available at PAIX?

We just got a great deal on a Gig circuit to PAIX, but the carrier doesn't have space available.

We'll probably to putting in a 6506 - so at least half a cabinet, most likely a full one.

We don't need bandwidth, just a cabinet and power.

Getting A Cogent Connection To A Cabinet

Jul 31, 2009

if I rented a half, or full cabinet for colocation. And would wanted Cogent was my isp for the cabinet how much do they charge?

Days they take to setup?

Costs to setup? (Setup fee?)

I know their pricing 100Mbps for $1,000 which is pretty crazy deal. And if I would go on their contract would it save me a setup fee?

What Should I Expect To Pay For Half Cabinet

Jul 20, 2009

I currently use a half cabinet and think I'm paying way too much. I pay $1,000/month for half rack (10 meg bandwidth) 20 amps power, etc. Service and connectivity has been great (Ashburn, VA data center) but I think it's just over priced.

What should I pay for half cab, 20 amps, 5-10 MEG bandwidth, 20 amps?

On that note, what if I was to go for a full cabinet solution, same power and bandwidth, what is ultimately the expected price for a reputable colo provider?

23-inch Cabinet Choices

Jun 25, 2008

I use APC Netshelter cabinets now; I have a need for some cabinets with 23-inch wide rails, capable of holding telco muxes, rectifiers, batteries, etc. Any suggestions on cabinet?

Something that would blend in with APC Netshelters (black, bowed/curved door on cold aisle) would be nice. I know I've seen a cabinet very similar to Netshelter delivered from NetApp, but with a grey/off-black color, and 1-piece door on the hot aisle. If APC is just sourcing their cabinets from some manufacturer who takes engineering requests, it would be great to find out who makes them.

Choosing A Switch For Cabinet.

Mar 1, 2007

I'm planning to move my co-located server to a cabinet soon. We are adding dedicated web & database servers to take the load off of the main box. I will get one GigE drop in this cabinet, so obviously I need a switch.

No routing is needed on my end, so my guess is that the regular GigE switch would do just fine. But I have few concerns about my setup.

All of my servers have dual GigE port. My plan is to connect one to the internet, and another to a local private lan for SMB, database, SNMP, and such. Jumbo frame is enabled on a private lan.

Is there any 16-port switch that allows me to assign 8 ports into one virtual switch (1500-byte frame) and another 8 into another virtual switch (9000-byte frame) ?

On the internet side, I expect to be pushing around 300-400mbps, a bit higher on the private lan. I need a very stable switch that won't choke or crash at this rate.

I'd also like to be able to limit throughput on each port, and probably do port/ip filtering on this switch instead of iptables on each box. (Am I asking too much for a switch?)

Ganging Up On Cabinet Colocation

Aug 25, 2007

When looking at the 1U's, I have to search really long and hard trying to find a half-decent host. A lot of companies skimp on something when offering colo, and makes for a bad day when that particular service is needed.

On the other hand, I see a lot of colocation offers for great deals on Cabinets and half Cabinets. High, premium bandwidth, PLENTY of amps, top of the line support, etc. It would be tempting to go for these, except I only have a single unit server.

I was going to give up on finding a good colo, then I got an idea. What if I got together a few other people, we all pitched in for our slice of a cabinet, and bring the price well within reasonable limits for those of us with low demands?

Would it be too difficult to do something like this? If you run across this topic and are looking for colo, would you be willing to give this a shot?

Average Bandwidth Usage Per Cabinet

Nov 1, 2007

I'm about to move 31 machines into a 42U full cabinet

Previously I was on an uncapped bandwidth provider but we had a lot of problems with them so I decided to find a new provider who charges bandwidth by mbps

I do not have mrtg installed or managed switches, but I may start with 10mbps.

But I'm just curious, what takes a full cabinet with more than 30 machines does the total bandwidth takes you.

Perhaps any colo provider here don't mind to share their stats.

Opinions On This Cabinet Style's Ability To Cool

Mar 29, 2007

What do you think about this cabinet style's ability to cool say 18-20 1U core 2 duo servers? [see attached jpeg.]

its got a fan in the ceiling of it. I have read that ceiling fans don't do much and its the front to back cooling that really makes a difference. Is this true?

If you don't like this type of cab, which type do you like?

1-2 Cabinet Colo In San Francisco Bay Area (East Bay, Too)

Nov 20, 2007

I'm currently colocated in 365 Main in San Francisco.

Due to power limitations there I need a new place with 1-2 cabinets, about 25Amps and 1-2mbps committed.

I'm looking for a long-term, reliable, 24x7 NOC, with no surprises. If my servers are down, I'm out of business, so uptime (power+network) is the most important factor.

I will summarize the recommendations I get and post them back here.

Hardware: Db Servers, Web Servers, File Servers. Cpu, Ram, Disk

Jan 20, 2007

I have a lot of questions here so if you can't answer them all I understand. even pointing me somewhere where I could get the answers would be appreciated; hardware sites focusing on server hardware, forums focusing on such, etc.

we plan to have three different types of servers:

- db server (self explanatory. mysql. for forums, mysql driven sites.)

- file server (lots of files around ~2-10MB, consistant 70mbps right now, but we want more room for upgrades. needs a LOT of storage room.)

- web server (lots of php files, but also static things like plain html, images, etc. also includes all misc services for the setup-- dns, etc.)

could I be given a rundown for which hardware each of the three should have? I don't need specifics, even just knowing that more ram is important here while cpu doesn't matter as much, or that the fastest disks available are a must, etc would all be valuable info for me. despite that, I certainly wouldn't mind specific hypothetical hardware configs.

for the database server I'm assuming the more ram the better. not entirely sure about the cpu? also not positive on disks...

for the fileserver, how much ram would be practical or useful? disk io will be an issue I'm because plenty of people will be pulling files at once so the disk needs to read from multiple places. scsi (and even raptors) are not an option as we need 750GB+ of space on a reasonable budget. more ram will take some load of of the disks, but how much is neccessary / reasonable?

for the web server I'm assuming cpu first, then ram, but it'll likely need less ram than the db server?

I'm more lost on the disks than anything. scsi on the fileserver is not an option under any circumstances due to $/GB. for the db & web server I'm willing to pay for scsi if the performance increase really does warrant the extra money, but I'd like to be convinced before shelling it out. if you have benchmarks geared at server hardware when it comes to disks I'd really appreciate it.

also, what's the best way to network these together when colocated? each one with a dual gigabit ethernet port and then the communications go to and from the router?

Load Balancing 2 Web Servers And 2 MySQL Servers

Mar 28, 2008

I was wondering if it is possible to cluster 2 web servers and 2 mysql servers with only one server working as load balancer.

I am planning to use LVS (ldirectord and heartbeat).

Let's say I have 3 IPs allocated to the load balancing server. (Main IP) (Web Load Balancing IP) (MySQL Load Balancing IP)
If a connection is made to .223 it would pass the request to one of the web nodes.
If a connection is made to .224 it would pass the request to one of the MySQL nodes.

Is it possible to do this?

If not, can I run, for example, nginx on 223 IP address to provide forward proxy? (Then it would not be able to HA but the main point is to load balance so)

Also, what would be the best way to keep the data same on both web servers? This is a web cluster for a very high traffic forum with a lot of uploads every hour so it has to do real time synchronization. I heard that DRDB is only one way and not two way so I'm not going to be able to use this.

Renting Colocated Servers As Dedicated Servers

Oct 11, 2009

I am just colocating servers and managing them myself, and renting services off of them. In the future I would like to start offering dedicated servers as well. I am wondering if many companies do this, or if its more of a general practice to just setup as a reseller? The worst part that comes to mind is thinking of how to do billing for the bandwidth per month. With my setup I would only be offering flat bandwidth packages (like 2TB a month) but even so, I cant think of anyway to automate it so WHMCS knows if they went over, if so, how much, etc.

Name Servers

Aug 6, 2009

I have recently purchased new hosting with a new supplier which uses a different kind of control panel - cpanel. So before I transfer our organisations website across I want to spend some time playing.

We purchased our domains with 123 reg and the host we have been using for a while is namesco our new hosting package is with neither of these suppliers.

Before I transfer our primary domain to the new host I'm doing a dummy run with one of our other domains and that's where i've come up with this name servers question.

The new host gave me the name of their 2 name servers.

But when I went to my control panel at 123 reg to change the name servers they were not using namesco name servers they were using 123's.

Do I want to change the name servers to the new name servers or not? I'm a bit confused as i was expecting to see namesco names servers?
