hello. i am trying to find a cheap place to colocate a 1u server, its a old compaq proliant dl360 g2 and all i need is like 6 ips (turning it into a vps server running 3 vpss) and like 100 gb of bandwith a month, the kicer is though it says it needs 2 amp input on the power supply, i wouldnt mind having two network drops so that i can run my ilo port so i can do remote reboots but i think to start out with i will just go with one network drop. anyone have any thoughts of a cheap place i could use? i found swift water telecom but i have been trying for 3 days to get ahold of anyone there and they dont seem to answer there phone or email and i dont realy want to go with a company i cant ever get ahold of someone if something comes up but that price would be purfect sence i currently only have 50 bucks to use to shipp it off and pay for my first month.
Check out the colo section there are plenty of good providers. You should also do a search and just see what others have to say about those companies. Also you can usually add things like extra power drops and network drops for small fees.
Consider GoRACK (http://www.gorack.net/) as well. They're very affordable. I use them for several of my servers.

Finding the right balance between power, space and profitability is the common theme among data center's. Poor power management and you are left with unusable space; too little space and your growth is limited. It's a constant balancing act.
