I am looking for data centers in the vicinity of Philadelphia (Wilmington, DE is ideal) that offers 24/7 physical access. Besides the Switch & Data facilities inside Philadelphia, can anyone recommend other DCs in the area to check out?
In particular, I want to know if there are similar offerings in the area around the same pricing as Switch & Data colo + Cogent transport, for example.
I anticipate needing 2 cabinets and would consider a 100mbit commit. Latency is not of primary concern to me.
I saw colosource.com mentioned on WHT as a place to check for colo providers, but their site seems to list companies selling rack space as opposed to full racks with physical access and no way to filter those results.
There's nothing wrong in particular with Switch & Data... I just want to know if there are other options in the area so as to be able to do better in pricing for similar services elsewhere.
I currently have colo through a reseller of Level3 in Detroit, and the price Switch & Data quoted me for cabinet space & power is slightly more than twice as much as what I currently pay. I don't know if this is due to differences in location or because I'm dealing directly with S&D and not a reseller (probably both). I was hoping that that I may be able to find a reseller in Philly who can resell full cabinets with 24/7 access & connectivity rather than going through Switch & Data myself directly.
Thanks to the others for the suggestions about HostRemote and Inflow, and the prior WHT links. I'll check them out.
check out, hostremote, s & w just bought meridian telesis so they have more space. Also have a look at fast.net, they were bought by us lec and are doing some nice things with their dc, they are in conshohocken.
