    Co locating a tower case? in UK

    Just wondering if any of the UK datacentres allow you to put a mini tower case in their premises? I imaging this would cost more though?

    I've heard theres a datacentre in Newcastle, is that right? do they take tower cases?

    Best just to drop them an email. All you can do is ask. I'm sure there would be space for a tower somewhere. There's datacentres all over. Some in Leeds aswell etc.

    Poundhost (www.poundhost.com) and coreix (www.coreix.net) probably would since they have their own facilities.

    Does it work out more expensive that a 1u?

    and does your server need to meet any specific criteria?

  8. I can confirm that for Coreix

    1/. We charge the same for the colo of a tower server as although it takes slightly more space it uses less power per square foot and the racking equipment is cheaper so it all balances out.

    2/. We accept any standard Midi ATX case or smaller.

    3/. There are no specific requirements for the server via a PSU and LAN port.

    From my knowledge points 2 and 3 are the same for most providers offering ATX Colo.

    Hi Alan, I hear you're planning to take more space in the DC from Tyco very soon?

  10. Hi,

    This is kind of off topic, but no, currently we have plenty of space left, we have an entire 15,000 sq foot suite. Perhaps you are confusing this with out network upgrade from 2 diverse fibre paths to 8 ?

    Alan

    There is DataBanx in Newcastle, just down the road from us. It's a nice small facility, but unfortunately I think it's rack only.

    You're also pretty limited carrier wise as theres only Onyx and Easynet on site.

    depends on if it's in a prime location or not - the majority of the UK internet centres around docklands where space is expensive, but bandwidth choice and peering afcilities are better. The further out you go, traditionally the cheaper the space gets - exactly like housing costs.

    specific criteria - usually
    1. will fit in their racks
    2. comes with rails (or you pay for a shelf/mounts)
    3. is safe /enclosed - open areas/fans etc can be a health&safety issue (you'd *love* to see some of the things people have asked us to colo)

    Generally the small providers in the UK will allow tower co-location for equivlent prices to 1/2u. Anyone in central London will probably charge you for 4/5u as space is at a premium and that is the amount of space the machine is taking up. I would just concour with the reccomended data centre's above.

    Cheers

    the datacentre near me (newcastle) charges towers at 4u or was it 5?

    Are there any other datacentres in the north east of england?
