To get started on colocation you'll need rack-mountable server, power circuit cable, network ethernet cable (cat5, cat5e or cat6) and server rails compatible with rack-mount server. If you're colocating one or two
servers, a switch is not usually required. For more than 2 servers, we ask that you send in a switch to handle the additional network ports required for connectivity.
A quick calculation can be done by checking each components power circuit consumption individually and adding them up. You'll usually find this information on the packaging or on the component itself. In general a
1U rack-mount server will consume anywhere from .75A / 120V - 1.25A / 120V with the CPU taking most of that power circuit usage.
Additional IPs can be ordered anytime. For a CIDR block larger than /29 we require proper justification, detailed summary of what IPs will used for.
While there is no set limit on additional IPs per colocation customer, all requests are handled on a case by case basis.
With every server we offer free basic remote hands, but if you require further assistance we offer a la cart managed colocation:
Advanced Remote Hands:
- Internal HDD Replace/Install: $30
- RAM swap/install: $30
- Motherboard replace/install: $80
- Add-on PCI card install: $15
- BIOS config/troubleshooting up to 15min: $15
- Server Investigation / Troubleshooting (Senior Engineer): $155/hour
All packages include Free Remote Hands: 24/7 reboots, button pushing, screen readouts, external device attachment/movement (CDROM, KVMIP, Adapters,etc), hot-swap HDD replacements / additions, hot/cold swappable PSUs, blade server additions.
Why not both? Many of our clients have their own IPs that they would like us to announce on our network, but if you do not have your own IPs, we're more than happy to help with that process.

We offer space to store additional hard drives, RAM and other peripherals for $25/Month.
We stand by our 4-hour SLA window for hardware replacement. We understand we are your hands and eyes in these situations, so we work hard to ensure your projects stay online.
When shipping a server, include the following: Rack mountable server (pre-built), Rack mount server rails, Power Circuit Cord, Network cables, Switch ( if required )
Shipping costs can vary widely, so we pass these costs on to our customer.
Most of our commitment are month-to-month. Deeper discounts may be available depending on commitment term.
Power is not restricted per drop as long as it is within the safety limits of the load.
Any Cast is a method of announcing your IPs in multiple geographical points of presence in such a way that your visitors reach the closet point of presence giving them a better, faster experience.
