hey I'm looking for a good colocation provider in Northern, CA (preferably San Jose). I'm looking for 1U or 2U and a good amount of bandwidth (around 400GB) to host some websites and game servers. This is just a personal server I am sharing with friends.
Budget is no more then $120/month. I don't know if it's possible, but maybe you guys know of a place that cheap. :-)
Hi, I'd suggest checking out Hurricane Electric (he.net). They have two locations near you .
They have one in San Jose, and in Fremont. I don't know how cheap the bandwidth would be for you. But the place i'm colocating with at the Fremont location is getting 30Mbps of bandwidth, with a cost around 1500$ right now, but that's just for the bandwidth.
I've never had a problem with them, and their support is really good. Always there waiting to do what you wanna work 'em with .
Check out simpli.biz. I was involved with a very similar search a few months ago. They were very cool to deal with, plus they gave a VERY competitive quote right off the bat -- no haggling necessary. Plus, they're in an AboveNet datacenter in San Jose which is pretty much top of the line. Worth checking out, in my opinion.
I'd suggest layer42.net, I think they still do colocation.. Ask for Steve, he's an awesome network engineer, and I believe he owns the company.. The only guy besides myself I'd trust a server to in the bay area.
I don't get it. What do these hosts think the customer can do with only 256kbps? I mean, I can get my own adsl/cable and do that. Anyone who's in the business for this kind of service, dedicated servers included, won't be able to do anything with a mere 256kbps. What am I missing here?

Layer42, I can't speak for them but I'm not them, is a real hosting company. Their pricing is pretty fair for what they offer, and I'm sure they have better pricing at substantial bandwidth costs.. I don't think their webpage does them justice.
I worked with their owner, Steve Rubin, for a while, and he's an amazing cisco guy. If I didn't run my own hosting business, he's who I'd send all of my customers to..
And yes, I'm pretty sure they're in santa clara at Equinix.
