COLOCATION PRICING: HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Datacenter Colocation Pricing

Flexible pricing based on the resources you need as lows as $59/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.

DATA CENTER COLOCATION FAQ

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 tiered server shelf.

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 easily 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 all the features of our Data Center at a cost which is less than what you would spend to maintain your own 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.

Your servers can be connected to the Internet through our network or you can get a dedicated connection.  You can even get a network connection to your office network  if you want instead of accessing them through the Internet.

If you have any questions about what you can do please contact us.

Datacenter collocation is an affordable alternative to building your own computer room. Our datacenter is built for 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 great for organizations interested in extending their own 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 that’s available to assist 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 and this is required for us.  This isn’t transferable to customers which means a customer doesn’t automatically pass a PCI audit or become PCI Compliant.  You need your applications, and servers to meet PCI requirements and to pass a PCI audit.

Yes. InfoQuest offers both private Internet and point-to-point circuits for private use. A number of carriers have established a presence in the InfoQuest Datacenter to facilitate these requests. Point-to-point circuits are a common way for organizations to create high speed data links between their office and the InfoQuest Datacenter.

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 coordinated those visits in advance through InfoQuest.

You have three options.  1) place your equipment behind InfoQuest’s redundant network firewalls; 2) place your equipment and your own 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.

By default, customers using the InfoQuest network are connected to dual tier-1 carriers through a redundant topology of network equipment (routers, switches, firewalls, etc.).  InfoQuest has its own 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.

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 can reboot servers, replace a drive or whatever you 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.

Datacenter Colocation and Cloud Computing are basically the same. They both provide a way to run applications on servers that reside in physical buildings “Datacenters” connected to the Internet or private data networks. These Datacenters, whether Colocation facilities like InfoQuest or Cloud services like Amazon AWS, are built with a 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 in popularity. These environments offer a way to consume virtual computer resources, disk storage, and application software in the “cloud” without having to purchase or manage physical computers.The key benefit of Cloud environments is they require no hardware investment, provide developers with the ability scale their compute resources up or down real-time, and build redundancy into their applications.Those benefits do however come at a considerable cost. Unlike Cloud Computing, in which you provision virtual resources on someone else’s equipment, Datacenter colocation allows you to place equipment you already own in a Colocation facility. For organizations that don’t need massive scale-ability and infinite redundancy, Colocation offers a considerable cost savings. The price of purchasing hardware and colocating that hardware in a Datacenter is significantly lower for most organizations then utilizing the same resources in a Cloud environment.
