The Bear, Thanks so much, also could you please explain to me how do a Data Center work? As in letting me resell servers. or rent servers and then sell em? or do i have to buy servers and sell? Not sure how that part works
What you were talking about, you would need to buy the servers and sell them, if you just want to sell servers that they own, you need to look into a reseller program at a datacenter, not actually renting space from them.
Basically, it depends on the datacenter, but some of them you will just get floor space/cage/cabinet and power, you bring the internet, etc. Others provide the internet, power, space, and you handle just the routing, switching, and physical servers.
If you do not have some experience in network management, I would recommend not jumping right into renting space at a datacenter, but instead reselling some servers for a good datacenter, providing the support they will require you to provide, and studying what it would take to make the jump to selling servers of your own.
Main thing is, it is a packed market, find a niche and stick with it, there is money to be made in the right markets.
You can get half rack of space for under $500.00/per month that does not include your power drop ofcourse, or your bandwidth bills, or software licenses or your insurance. I know that with Telx, it is required to have $1,000,000 insurance policy.
Maybe perhaps a managed colocation solution would be best for you?
Okie, thanks So which DC Resell? not much i see? and most of them wants phone contact which is pretty much good i think to deal with people on a voice level then emails.
Anyways Stephen your pretty much save me time on how it works Also Hows your business going? I see your a Windows Manager.
Now for Reseller? More info on that? Like what do i exspect as a reseller? services wise? and does coustomers care? becuase reseller might not match some of the price. and also have access to some of the servers.
