I am currently looking for colo in the San Jose / Fremont, CA area.
3mbps of bandwidth - and prices per each additional mbps
Can anyone recommend a good reseller? My budget is around $100-$150/mo, preferably with no setup fee's.
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.
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.

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.
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 @
