Dark Fiber

Mar 27, 2008

Has anyone looked into getting dark fiber verse going direct with a transport provider? How much does dark fiber cost compared to say a Gig-E transport line? What kind of equipment is needed on each end of the fiber, and how much does this equipment cost? At what point does a provider look for dark fiber verse getting transport for a Lit provider?

How To Find The Fiber

May 26, 2007

Assuming that one was to get a local office in a town, how would someone find building or area that had a high availbility of fiber nearby, but was not a datacenter? Are their fiber maps for each big city? Does anyone have fiber maps for Houston, Texas? I would be interested in seeing these maps if possible.

Removing Fiber By Cutting It

Jun 23, 2009

We have a large amount of multimode fiber coiled up under our raised floor that needs to be removed. The end that remains intact is running to a SAN cabinet that is very densely populated and our vendor has suggested cutting the fiber to make it easier to remove without disturbing the remaining active fiber.

Does anyone have any experience cutting fiber in a data center environment ?

Are glass fragments or any other debris a concern ?

Brooks Fiber Communications

Does anyone have any information on a company called BROOKS FIBER COMMUNICATIONS - TEXAS? They are showing up in a couple CO's on the website.

I think they might have been bought out, possibly by Verizon/MCI. If anyone can share any information about this company that would be great. Nothing seems to show up in google.

Fiber Optic Cable Down - No Back-up

Jun 26, 2007

I put this in the co-location section since I am co-locating a server that I host a few Websites on. The server is located in the Pacfic Northwest at a hosting company out there. As you may know, this is a "more remote" area of the United States.

Today, the company lost all Internet access when a Fiber optic cable went down. Not only was my stufff down but the entire hosting company was down. In 10 years of doing Internet development, I have never seen this happen to any hosting company I have worked with no matter how good or bad they were. On top of that, it happened one time last year as well.

According to my co-location provider, the problem happened a long way up stream. SO far that the lines cannot be backed up. Is this true? Could a fiber optic cable fail at some point where it cannot be switched over to another line?

I don't know if I should I believe that or not. It would seem to me that it is a matter of money and they may not have a back-up system in place if the pipe goes down. Is it possible? Who's fault is it?

Corning Optical Fiber LEAF(R) Can Used In Indoors And Inter-floor

Dec 19, 2007

I just came across this listing for Corning Optical Fiber LEAF(R) on eBay [url]. I've never used optic fiber cables before and want to experiment with them for indoor and inter-floor(friend below) use. The listing says that the coating is CPC6, which is some kind of acrylic coating over the fiber.

My question is: Can the above cable be used without further sleeving or some other protection/covering over it? I read somewhere that the cable must be reinforced and covered with PVC jacket or something,

Take A Colo Package Or Colo In A Carrier Hotel With Your Own Network

Dec 16, 2007

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?

Colo- 1U Vs Amp

Mar 29, 2008

I've been out of the game for a while and now looking at colo prices each server is only allocated 0.5a on most plans.

I was looking at purchasing a 1u HP DL160 dual quad core system with at least dual sata raided drives

My question is what kind of amps would a system like this pull? and how much do data centers typically charge for that additional power if it needed over the .5

if anyone knew hosts (other then FDC in USA) that offers 1U-4U/midtower colocation with 100Mbit or greater uplink, with atleast 2TB of transfer. With IRC allowed.

My budget is ~$100, I'm fairly sure it can be done as I saw FDC had one for $79, and it would be fine though I was hoping if anyone knew any others.

Also, Giga-International has what I need, are they reliable?

colo of a 1u server that would need 500gig per month of b/w and I perferably would like to find a DC in NY/northern NJ or southern CT although in my search I seem to be getting price quotes of $100+ per month which I think is insane when I see dedicateds with more b/w for the same amount or even less.

I know most will say just get a dedicated server somewhere but my requirments are that I need a server with a lot of ram and at least a dual cpu and dedicate's with a dual cpu and 2gigs or more of ram seem to be much more thenmy budget.

So any suggestions for a $60 or less per month colo space with 500gig of b/w or a dedicated server provider offering a server in that price range with dual cpu and 2gig ddr ram and 80gig hdd?

By the way I looked at which has a $49 deal on a dedicated server but no option to have one with a dual cpu:

I have had experience with reselling hosting using HostGator seller. My job was basically to run my site and get customers, set up price plans etc on WHM. I sold that company a while back. I am ready to have another shot at hosting, but this time I want to use my own servers...

I have found a great site, which has customisations etc. on servers (, but they don't ship to UK. (If I'm using colo is US, could I get it shipped straight to them?)

My main question is, is colo needed? If I am going to setup this company the Data-Center is not going to be local, either London or in US. So there is no chance of me going down unless it is to pick up my server . So I think I'm going to need a maintaned service I think. The server will be used for clients data (shared hosting). So what services will I need in terms of security and stability? What am I looking for in a colo service? What about back-ups of data on the server? Is that my responsibility or can it be bought as a service? Ok... now I'm guessing that I'm going to need colo...

What are common problems etc. with servers? Am I going to need virtual IP connection for maintainance... Is it best I pay for this or a service operator? Any recommendations on where to have the colo (i'm based in UK) and why? What can I do when it is time for me to request my server back from UK?

When changing colo services is there any way of avoiding down-time?

Value Colo

Jul 16, 2007

I have noticed that many web hosts offer intel celeron machines @ $55 per month...they do not own the datacenters but colocate the servers,

We are also thinking of buying 2-3 such machines @ $450 each and then coloing them in the USA

I think about 800gigs-1tb would be the bandwidth requirements per server..

we aren't interested in RACKS...we just want to colo 2-3 machines to see how fast they sell, and then maybe we might order about 10-15 servers..

who do you think can offer us a decent deal for less than $40-50 per month...all

Why Go Colo

Mar 13, 2007

What is the best indication for a web hosting company to move from dedicated server to colocation?

I have several low end dedis and im thinking of buying an enterprise class server with lots of diskspace (raid 5, dual power, ecc, etc.), have it colocated and move all the accounts to that server. I would be saving in the long run but kinda turned-off due to all eggs in one (enterprise-class) basket dilema. I woud be saving on server management cost too because I'm signing up one machine only instead of several.

Is going colocation a natural progression of the web hosting business cycle? We start off with a Reseller Account in the beginning - then grow and lease a Dedicated Server. And then grow and lease another and another..... Is colocation the next big step?

I'm considering going with CalPop for one of my colo sites. I've read the user reviews and apart from those who were chaffed because of scratched servers and reboots they seem decent enough. My take on sticking anything in a datacenter is to stick it in yourself and rent the entire rack. That should take care of 90% of the negative reviews I have read, so my question is does any one have any real review of their services? Bandwidth performance, etc?

Secondly, I need a second colo for a redundant server. I'd like to find something closer on the East coast that offers the same pricing structure and services.

Firewall For Colo

May 1, 2007

Anyone know what firewall do I need for my colo? I want to protect external IP. Here is my setup

3 servers, all have two nic cards, one of the cards will be the external IP and the other one will be LAN IP. So my question is what hardware firewall do I need to protect the External IP?

I was thinking of a cisco pix 515e. Which only route external IP to the LAN IP. I need something where I don't have to route, It just protect the external IP.

Colo Vs Dedicated

May 2, 2008

I've been a colo since the beginning of time. My servers are getting old so I've started pricing options, and it looks like dedicated is the way to go today. But I'm not sure...

I suppose it depends on the host. My host says "if you're colo, we provide admin at an hourly rate. If your machine needs a reboot, call us and we reboot it. If you're dedicated we don't touch your server beyond repairing it. If it needs a reboot, you login to our site and click a link and it is rebooted."

That doesn't seem like much of a difference. I'd need an off-site admin, but both charge by the hour, so no big deal. A live person reboot seems no better than a web-based software reboot. In fact I'll wager that the "live person" just logs in and clicks the link for me.

Colo is about twice as expensive as dedicated. That seems like the only big difference.

It also seems to me that with today's cPanel-style admin it's trivial to migrate to a new host, so competition to keep clients is intense. I'm guessing that keeps prices down. Reading between the lines of what my host says, I can tell he doesn't really want me to go dedicated. He kinda said they don't make much money on dedicated machines.

Which Is Better For Colo/NOC/DC US Or Canada?

May 29, 2008

I have a web hosting business that has been growing constantly for a couple of years, now I think it's time to move on and instead of leasing servers start with colocation and operating my own hardware, I'm in Mexico and there are no good deals here as there are in other countries, so I have several questions about your appreciation of where things are better for business, US or Canada:

Where is colo cheaper?
Where is hardware cheaper?
Where is personnel less costly?
Where is personnel better qualified?
Where is office space cheaper?
Where is electrical energy cheaper?
Where are more investment opportunities?
Where are taxes lower?
Where is living less costly?

I've been researching these on my own but still have several doubts, may be you find some of this question obvious however I'd still like to know your appreciation.

Managed Colo

Jan 31, 2008

Are there any established providers that offer this? I want an established company who isn't going to run off with my server, and they need to provide high quality bandwidth(Level3, AT&T, Sprint, etc) with 100% Power SLA, etc. in a secure facility.

IE: If I buy my own servers can I ship them out to a datacenter to have them fully managed, basically being a dedicated server? Except i'll own the hardware, and they provide the bandwidth, management, etc.
