    Fremont/San Jose Colo Recommendation

    I am currently looking for colo in the San Jose / Fremont, CA area.

    Requirements:
    100mbps port
    3mbps of bandwidth - and prices per each additional mbps
    3 amps
    1U

    Can anyone recommend a good reseller? My budget is around $100-$150/mo, preferably with no setup fee's.

    http://egihosting.com can probably help you. They have posts in the colo advertising section here.

    Good luck!

    I would recommend advanced server colocation. They have some good ties in Fremont that could probably get you in at or around your budget. Not to mention, Fremont also has free remote hands to cycle power etc..

    I would also recommend egihosting.com. However, 3 amps 1U colo for $150 is on the low side. You might have a little bit more choices if you raise your budget a little. I would think 3 amp 1U colo server to be closer towards $200-$300/month.

    I got quoted $179/mo with EGI with $70 setup fee. Advanced colo won't give me a straight up answer for what I need, trying to offer me unmetered when I only need a couple megs

    The only provider I know of over there that does single server colo is EGIHosting like the others have stated.

    You can try contacting HE.net and see if they reply, I've heard they usually don't if it is less than a full cabinet, though. You could also try contacting SVTIX in San Jose and see if they can provide you any potential providers in their facility which offers 1U single server colo.

    I really am looking at EGI but they are charging $50/amp + $40/1mbit, $50/mbit.

    Makes sense to me. Think about it:

    Lets assume the cabinet is a 20 amp breaker, de-rated to 16 amps, and costs the entity $700. They could safely fit 16, 1amp servers in the cabinet. To break even they would need to charge $43.75 per server for it to just sit there (no bandwidth link). Now multiply it by 3 (if your using 3 amps) and you get $131.25 for your machine to sit there with no bandwidth.

    Even coupled with the bandwidth, $179/month is VERY reasonable, I doubt they even make much of a profit on that.

    You should talk to Layer42, they still do colo by the U.
    Other than that, EGI is the only other one I'd recommend now.

    There is some great colo in Fremont, and also San Jose & SunnyVale. HE is the strongest player in Fremont, and there are resellers that can do shared colo for you (1u and up). I would suggest calling Ed LaFrance @ LIS - very cost competitive, especially on bandwidth. He can be reached @

    The only place I know off hand is 'EGIHosting' as others have stated before. Best of luck!
