Datacenter Colocation Pricing

Flexible pricing based on the resources you need as low as $80.00/month.

Pricing is based on:

1U or more – One Rackspace unit (1U) will hold a single 1U sized server or device.  Larger servers or devices will require more than 1U.  A SAN or NAS for example is often 2U or 4U

Quarter Rack – This provides 10U of space in a rack.

Half Rack – This provides 21U of space in a rack.

Full Rack (our cabinet) – This provides 42U of space in a rack.

Full cabinet (your rack) – This provides as much space as your rack has.

Non-rack space for tower servers – While most servers in a data center are rack mounted, we have space for tower servers.

This will vary based on your servers and their configuration.

This will be based on your actual bandwidth usage.  Options exist to purchase a fixed or varying amount of bandwidth billed either per GB used (both inbound and outbound), or based on Megabits Per Second Mbps using a 95th percentile measurement.

This will vary based on the number of Public IP addresses you require.

Colocation is when you rent space and locate your servers and related hardware at a Data Center that offers Colocation Services. You can rent space in a server rack by the number of rack spaces you need, part of the rack, a full rack, multiple racks, and some Colocation Service Providers like InfoQuest can accommodate tower servers outside of a rack on a server shelf.

Datacenter Colocation and Cloud Computing are the same. They both provide a way to run applications on servers in physical buildings, “Datacenters” connected to the Internet or private data networks. These data centers, whether Colocation facilities like InfoQuest or Cloud services like Amazon AWS focus on data redundancy, security, cooling capacity, and uninterrupted power. Cloud computing environments like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and others are gaining popularity. Consume virtual computer resources, disk storage, and application software in the “cloud” without purchasing or managing physical computers. The key benefit of Cloud environments is they require no hardware investment, provide developers with the ability to scale compute resources up or down in real-time, and build redundancy into their applications. Those benefits do, however, come at a considerable cost. Unlike Cloud Computing, Datacenter colocation allows you to place your equipment in a Colocation facility. For organizations that don’t need massive scale-ability and infinite redundancy, Colocation offers considerable cost savings. The price of purchasing hardware and colocating that hardware in a Datacenter is significantly lower for most organizations than utilizing the same resources in a Cloud environment.

Do you maintain a computer room/Data Center already, or thinking about building one out? Do you have a UPS and generator? More than one connection to the Internet? Redundant routers, firewalls, and network backbone? Is it scalable so you can expand quickly to support more servers? Is it monitored 24×7 365 days a year? How is your security?

Colocating your servers and equipment at our Data Center lets you take advantage of our Data Center at a cost less than what you would spend to maintain your computer room or Data Center. It also allows you to focus on running your business instead of providing a safe and stable environment for your servers.

Connect your servers to the Internet through our network or a dedicated connection available from several providers in our facility.

By default, customers using the InfoQuest network connect to dual tier-1 carriers through a redundant topology of network equipment (routers, switches, firewalls, etc.). InfoQuest has its range of IP addresses, and you will have the benefit of access from two separate carriers with the capability of having traffic automatically reach your account should either of those primary carriers have an interruption. As for pricing, options exist to purchase a fixed or varying amount of bandwidth billed either per GB used (both inbound and outbound) or based on Megabits Per Second Mbps using a 95th percentile measurement to determine monthly usage.

You have three options. 1) place your equipment behind InfoQuest’s redundant network firewalls; 2) place your equipment and your firewall behind InfoQuest’s firewalls (double the protection); 3) obtain a dedicated network segment where traffic to your public IP addresses is routed directly to a firewall you provide.

Yes. InfoQuest offers both private Internet and point-to-point circuits for dedicated use. Several carriers have established a presence in the InfoQuest Datacenter to facilitate these requests. Connect your office or multiple locations to the InfoQuest Datacenter using various high-speed metro Ethernet options.  Contact us for more information.

The data center is accessible to authorized visitors anytime. Outside of regular business hours, we ask for prior notification. We provide details on how to provide access notifications.

Datacenter collocation is an affordable alternative to building your computer room. Our datacenter provides redundancy in the areas of power, cooling, and Network. This redundancy means your equipment will always be on, located in a climate-controlled environment, and accessible to you and your customers. Colocation is excellent for organizations interested in extending their infrastructure or creating a hybrid offsite location for disaster recovery. Colocation provides a way for you to secure and protect your compute infrastructure and leverage the cost benefits of owning hardware. With collocation, you know where your equipment is located and have physical access to the equipment at all times. Additionally, you have access to an on-site professional IT staff available to assist at any time.

InfoQuest’s Data Center meets the necessary PCI recommendations that apply to a Data Center and colocation service. InfoQuest’s hosted solutions also meet PCI requirements since we accept credit cards. PCI compliance isn’t transferable to customers, meaning a customer doesn’t automatically pass a PCI audit or become PCI compliant. Your applications and servers to meet PCI requirements to pass a PCI compliance audit.

Fully escorted access to the InfoQuest Datacenter is available to Co-location customers at all times. An InfoQuest representative will meet you upon arrival, check your security credentials, document your visit, and provide you with access to your equipment. If vendors require access to equipment in your absence, you must coordinate those visits in advance through InfoQuest.

Yes, we can reboot servers, replace a drive, or whatever else you may need without you being physically present on-site. We bill for support on an as-needed basis in increments as small as 15 minutes.

Yes, we have system administrators on staff and available to assist under professional services. Our administrators can help with both Windows and Linux-based operating systems.

Yes, we maintain an authorized visitor list. Anyone who wishes to access your equipment must be on that list and be identifiable with a photo ID from a reputably issued source. Vendors arriving unannounced will not be permitted access.
