Looking for Colocation recommendation in South Bay Area
I am looking for recommendations for colocation facility, preferrably in San Jose/Santa Clara/Sunnyvale/Mountain View area. I currently have a half cabinet with 1.5Mbps sustained bw in San Diego since 2000, just want to move to Bay Area due to office relocation.
1. They are in the US west coast and have NTT in the mix at the time I am looking for.
2. The facility is great. It's APC show case datacenter in the west coast, and I have fully redundant setup here. It might not be an important factor with some other, but we host for some VoIP, financial organizations, so uptime is important.
The datacenter has 3 cable rings to the Westin and Integra POP in Bothell, so even 2 connections from the Westin down recently (due to power issue from the Westin), our system is still online with Integra Telecom (see attached file for their network map)
UPS, generators are working immediately if the main power has trouble. The cooling is great too, they don't limit at 20A or 30A per cab. That allows us to use full cabinets without any issue.
3. Personal support. I contacted some vendors at that time, and I feel better with my current vendor. Up to now, after 2 years, my experience is still very positive, and we are still working closely.
If you don't need a local host, I would highly recommend you my colo vendor - Netriver Inc. Contact Adam Vierra over there, and let him know I send you there, he will prepare a good deal for you.
If you need to know any other thing about their facility, services, feel free to let me know.

There are many choices for you - I believe there are probably over 30 different providers in the geography you desire. From a pricing perspective, NTT have just deployed two new sites, and they are looking to make deals. If you don't need high-level redundancy, SVColo is an good economical choice, as are Layer42. We also represent sublease space with PeakWebHosting, and they can offer very economically. Send me an email for a quote.
