Hello, I'm a new WHT member and total newbie when it comes to colocation.
I've been renting server equipment from places like ThePlanet for a number of years and have become well versed in Windows and Linux servers and the hardware equipment used for the actual servers.
I'm looking for advice on a colocation provider to use in Illinois, USA.
The provider must meet the following requirements:
- Low latency, the equipment will be used for game server services.
- Cabinet rental with 42U or close to, space.
- Varying bandwidth commitment levels varying from 10Mbps to 100Mbps.
- 2 network connections to network, 1 for use, 1 for backup.
I will be installing servers into cabinets along with a cisco switch.
So far I've looked at Internap and they seem to be very very good for game servers but have the price to go with it.
I've also looked at Cogent but I've heard really bad things about them.
Any advice would be really very helpful and appreciated.
Thankyou in advance.
