    Need Co-Location -- For 10 1u Servers

    I have 10 1u Dual Xeon 2.4 ghz severs and I need to find a good place to co-locate.

    I'm not sure how many servers will fit in a rack, I'm pretty new to this.
    I just know I have 10 servers and I want to co-locate them for a decent price.

    price differs from one market location to another. What market location are you insterested in? Price will also depend on the bandwidth quality and amount you need.

    What's your budget? Standard racks hold 42U - look for a quarter-rack package as it will be cheaper then a whole rack.

    Kind Regards,

    You might get forced into a half rack. (Be aware how much power a provider allocates with a quarter rack.) Dual 2.4GHz Xeon can mean a lot of different things. It could easily mean a 2Amp machine under bootup/load. With 10 of those plus a switch and such... you're talking about more power then some providers give for a full rack.

    I want them located in the USA, I'm in florida so somewhere around that region would be nice.

    I'm not sure about the power, here's the specs of the server.

    Looks like netburst xeons, so looking at 2amps per server as a conservative estimate, you'll need 30 amps of power. Most providers won't allow more than 40amps of power per full cabinet, so chances are you're going to be looking at a full cabinet + an additional power circuit.

    You should have no problem finding providers that allow extra power in the cabs. I know at least one that will do it.
