Please note, this is all kinda up in the air right now. If you contact me about co-lo, I'll show you the coresite santa clara location, but pricing and stuff isn't firm. My goal is to get around these prices for power, but to give you fewer U, as I've got 5kw or so usable per rack here, vs. 1.92kw usable at svtix.
In an effort to lower my own co-location costs, and also because I've had a really good time with the co-location customers I had from before I stopped doing co-location, prgmr.com will shortly be doing co-location again.
Please note; Power is my major cost, so I can probably work with you on rackspace if you need another U or something. I probably can't give you more power without charging you more.
single-server co-location is still available; I just moved it for clarity.
partial or full rack co-location comes with physical access, a shelf, a pdu, a switch, and a few serial consoles. You can put about whatever you want in there (no live animals, explosives, electronics that are likely to electricute people etc... be reasonable. It's a data center.)
|monthly price||setup fee||watts included *||rack units included||other features|
|$206.25||$150||480w (1/4 of the usable power in a 20a 120v circuit.)||1/4 rack (10u)||1x8 port metered PDU, 1x shelf, 3x remotely accessible serial ports and 1x 10Mbps switch ports, and a /29 of IPv4 and a /48 of IPv6..|
|$362.50||$250||960w (1/2 of the usable power in a 20a 120v circuit.)||1/2 rack (20u)||1x8 port metered PDU, 1x shelf, 3x remotely accessible serial ports and 1x 10Mbps switch ports, and a /29 of IPv4 and a /48 of IPv6..|
|$650||$450||1920w (all of the usable power in a 20a 120v circuit.)||a full locking rack, all to your lonesome.||1x8 port metered PDU, 1x shelf, 3x remotely accessible serial ports and 1x 10Mbps switch ports, and a /29 of IPv4 and a /48 of IPv6..|
Special: the 1/2 and 1/4 specials include a managed Cisco or Lucent 10/100 switch, all to yourself. Special good for as long as I have the hardware on hand. You will have full enable access to that switch.
Note, the previously mentioned KVM over IP is a lie, at least until I can figure out how to IP enable Paragon UMT-8 32-port switches. As far as I can tell, I just bought the wrong part, though. You still get serial ports, though, those work.
Please note; power, generally speaking, is a bigger deal than rack units. I'm more likely to let you slide on an extra rack unit than on extra watts; watts cost me real money.
This means that the $50/month plan is only going to work for low-power single-socket servers. Your average single socket server is going to need the $100 plan, and your average dual-socket server is going to need the $150 or $206.25 plan.
This is in the svtix data center at 250 Stockton Ave in San Jose, CA.
You have your own shelf, and if you really want to put a desktop on that shelf, that's up to you. With the 1/4 rack deal, you get your own PDU. Note, power is a really big deal on all the plans. If you go over your power allotment, I will do my best to warn you, but if it's a choice between blowing the whole circuit and unplugging a customer that is over capacity, I will unplug the customer that is over.
all partial-rack plans come with physical access. This means that there are 3 other people with access. Email addresses and phone numbers will be shared amongst the four people sharing that rack. Access is logged by SVTIX.
You may purchase cross connects to any other provider in the building at what the data center charges me, which is $150 setup and $75/month.
Please note, all 10Mbps ports come with everything you would get if you bought a 10Mbps port alone from me. See our Bandwidth in San Jose deal for details. Especially note that we'll let you do bgp through us. Note, discount those prices by $50, if you are connecting to a prgmr.com quarter-rack.All of these deals are on a month-to-month basis. The prgmr.com discount for pre-paying here does not apply, as the margin is too thin. (note, I know all about going low-margin to build volume. I'm not risking the company, even if no-one signs up.)
However, these prices will not rise before Feb 1, 2013. You can come and go, but prices will remain the same. On Feb 1, 2013, my contract states that what I pay for the racks will go up no less than 5.5%. By then I hope to be much larger and in a position to force prices down rather than up, but it's like any other lease, the landlord will always try to raise the price on renewal. I just want to make sure you all understand what is going on.
Be prepared to move on Feb 1, 2013 - being prepared to move is an important part of any service contract negotiation. I just want to be transparent about what is happening.
My long term plan is to build up enough bulk to buy and build out my own data center space- but that's at least several years out, if not a completely unrealistic goal. Meanwhile, though, I currently have something like 7Kw of prgmr.com servers, and I just sold my first full rack of quarter rack cabnets (another 1.92Kw.) so it does look like I'll have enough bulk to demand lower prices when time for renewal comes around.
