    [UK] Manchester Co-Location

    I'm after co-locating a server in Manchester, ideally a midi-tower - at as low a cost as possible. Bandwidth would only be around 50Gigs initially.

    I'm simply after somewhere I can easily go and access if something goes wrong, and a hassle free installation

    Any suggestions on Manchester co-lo would be great

    Try doing a search on these forums as this has been asked before.

    I do remember that bandwidth is very expensive in Manchester - even more than in London Docklands. Maybe you would be better renting a dedicated elsewhere in the uk/usa?

    I think kewlio.net and tsn.uk.com can provide rackspace and bandwidth in manchester. Might be worth giving them a shout

    Plenty of providers can get you space/transit at places like IFL - kewlio and ikcs are both present etc.

    Does it have to be a tower - rackmounted 1u's are cheaper to collocate

    I can probably find a 1u if its much cheaper, but the bandwidth prices seem insane in manchester.

    I would check out gyron.net . I'm not a current customer of theirs, but I have been speaking with them and their pre-sales are pretty impressive.

    Paul,

    We have space available there but it's not something we advertise really. We prefer to get people online in London.
