You will be very hard pressed to find a deal for 500gb for a measely $100 including rackspace and power for colo. You should either bump your price up or your requirements drastically down.

Well said. I don't think I've ever seen colocation in a reputable datacenter at those rates (and I've seen some amazingly good prices).

Good bandwidth even at wholesale rates is about $50/Mbit. At 500GB, you'd be using 1.5Mbit or so. That means the colo company would be charged $75 for the bandwidth alone, not to mention the space and power. It's just not a profitable proposition for the vast majority of datacenters.

Up your price to $159/month and I think you'd find some takers, though you may still not be colocated on the best bandwidth...

1mbit sustained is 320gb a month or so. I'm not looking to argue 95th percentile. 500gb would be about 1.5mbit - 2mbit, I think in a good facility you may find this at $150-200 a month possibly.

NHIColo could probably cut you that deal for $100/month, however..well..this definately isn't a recommendation for going with them.

You may talk to, they definately have quality bandwidth, I recommend them. Tell them Nick sent you, but it won't be $100/month, NHIColo or United Colo could probably cut that deal..

BTW, Pihana (or now Equinix - 818 7th) is just as good as Equinix - LA or One Wilshire for what he's speaking of. Pihana is a GREAT datacenter, not as much transit in there, but the datacenter has potential.
