    Datacenter in Ohio

    I am currently looking for a Datacenter located in Columbus Ohio. I am in need of a 100sq ft cage to lease with expansion opportunities. Does anyone know of a DC in or around Columbus Ohio?

    Nothing. In fact, I am a Qwest DIA customer in Boston.

    They just make me laugh sometimes with their !pro-active, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc... But I digress. I am not here to say bad things about my provider At least they are damn reliable unlike COGENT!

    I wish I still lived in Boston..I lived my entire life there, and could always find what ever I needed. Now I live in Ohio, and can't find anything, and when I do find something, it's 2-3 hours away.

    Heheh.. Yea..

    Well, too bad Qwest doesn't do any 50% commission (lol) referral programs like XO does


    EDIT: May be you should move back to Boston and split the cost for cage at 230 Congress St. with gigE bandwidth

    yea but they usually don't allow people to come to their datacenter. Talk to their owner about it he probably can allow access, who knows..

    They are not Qwest...

    They run in independent facility. They used to have lines from Qwest from three different qwest POPs but Qwest being QWEST! they cancelled them and replaced with timewarner/gblx bw.

    Their site is a little bit outdated; but yes they have their own datacenter. PM me offline and I'll give you the owner's IM/email contact information, I dunno if I should post it in public forums or not.

    The owner of FOONET does not let anyone from the outside into the data center. Even if you have $10,000 worth of equipment he doesn't allow physical access for security reasons.

    I think it is very paranoid..If I was going to put my own equipment there and pay top dollar for the Bandwidth and the space, and I can't gain access to my own equipment, and SPACE THAT I RENT.....I don't think so..

    From conversations I've had with Paul over at foonet, I don't think the datacenter is even in the area. If it is, it sure isn't a huge place as Powell isn't very big, and since the address he gives is a PO Box it's hard to say.

    As for Columbus datacenters there are a few, but they are pricey:
    www.ipoutlet.com - I toured this facility and was very impressed, as it is pretty new. Our last quote with them was for a 10x10 cage, 20amps of power, 1mbps of bw, ethernet crossconnect, and it was in the mid 4000s. I have a contact who deals with them who I could put you in contact with, as he gets somewhat better rates since he sends them a lot of business.

    www.completeweb.net - one of the bigger and older datacenters, I have never dealt with them personally, but have contacts who have. I've heard good and bad. I'm not even sure they do cages.

    If you are interested in a less costly alternative, I also have contacts with ISPs that I could put you in touch with in the area who can work out a deal on colocation. It would be no huge datacenter, but you'd have a great connection for a fraction of the cost.

    Switch and Data have a carrier neutral facility in Cleveland.

    http://www.switchanddata.com/Locatio...fLocations/601

    I've never been, but I'm told it's on par with what I use here in Detroit. I have nothing but good things to say about their service.

    As far as IP, I don't know who's currently selling in that building. I would have to see a large commitment to light fiber in that building myself, but I'm sure someone else is already doing it.

    If Cleveland is a possiblity, I would be more than happy to pass your info to our Rep.

    I'm sorry. You must have me confused with someone else. I don't do AOL, so I don't know how you could have seen me on AOL.

    Might I ask which provider uses cogent bandwidth?
    We actually have some clients who may be interested if this is a possibility.
    Last I checked cogent's network didn't hit Ohio...

    I heard good experience and things about ipoutlet. I'd recommend them over Cogent.

    I would too but for one thing.THEY ARE SO EXPENSIVE..$450 PER MBIT..Most of their Bandwidth is Williams Also...it drops to $425 after 10 mbits..Last time I visted the Datacenter..They were empty..They had one rack 1/2 full...

    Lets not forget..the three year contract that you have to sign.
