My client lives in Wyoming and currently has servers located in CA and TX. He would like to move things closer to home. I know Wyoming doesn't have anything worth while and if there is I don't know about it and the price would be too high. That is what I named the four surrounding states.
My client does consulting work for primarily non-profit organizations and has a total of eight servers. He would like a full rack and is currently using about 2,000GB of data transfer a month between all servers. I am pushing for the 10Mbps unmetered port for growth in the future.
I like the service at Xmission.com in downtown Salt Lake City. Consonus has an extremely secure facility. Viawest has data centers in SLC and Denver (as well as Phoenix, Provo and Las Vegas).
The better part of Wyoming, however, is probably better served from Denver.
What town in Wyoming?
Casper, Cheyenne and Laramie are generally better served by Denver. Green River might be better served in Salt Lake.
I would expect towns like Laramie, Cheyenne and Casper to have some advance data centers.
For that matter, I seem to recall that Wyoming has an extremely robust communications market because a large amount of cross country data traffic travels through the state. Communications and transportation routes try to avoid the high rockies by going through southern Wyoming.
Well, things have somewhat changed in the past few weeks.
We are getting ready to deplay 20 servers and our bandwidth requirements have changed to full 100 Mbps.
I have looked at serveral places in Denver and am very close to signing a deal with a reseller in Data393. Before I do that, I just want to make sure I have looked into all my options. Does anyone know of any other places in these states? <>
yintercept, if you can think of any providers, by all means let me know. I don't know of any company in Wyoming that can handle that request (besides a Qwest CO).

Talk to Jay Suds here on the board, he may be able to get you decent pricing here in Data393. Data393 is the only decent facility in metro Denver that comes to mind for any mainstream hosting.
ViaWest is pretty popular here, they do most of the major sports teams like the Broncos, Rapids, Avalanche etc. but they are very expensive from what I remember. $500-$1000/mo for 1Mbps and 1U is the last I was quoted about a year ago.
Oh, I already see that you've contacted Jay. You can't really get any better here in Denver....
I can also second Xmission.com in UT. Very good people, small operation, but they have loads of bandwidth and will treat you very good. So, you can't go wrong with either. I used to get 20ms pings to xmission.com on Comcast, a LOT better than some local sites.
