1U Shared Server Co-Location Questions
Additional information comparing 1U Shared Services, Half Cabinets, and Full Cabinets is located here.
Question:   What is 1U?
Answer:   1U = 1.75 vertical inches.
Question:   How many U's is my Dell?
Answer:   It depends on your equipment. 1U = 1.75 vertical inches. A tower is approximately 4-5U.
Question:   Does Co-Location.com provide me with equipment or will you buy me a server?
Answer:   No. Co-Location.com provides only co-location services. We do not purchase equipment for customers.
Question:   Should I co-locate in a shared cabinet or half cabinet (20U)?
Answer:   If you generally have more than 6-8U it is more economical to co-locate in a dedicated half cabinet. half cabinets are dedicated to a single customer (not a shared environment). Customers are badged and hand scanned thus allowing for 24/7 access to the facility and cabinet.
Question:   If I begin in a shared area can I upgrade to the half cabinet?
Answer:   Yes, of course. Please note however that IP #s are not transportable. Thus, the entire IP #s will need to be changed when moving into the half cabinet. Therefore, if your future growth might require a half cabinet, it is advisable to begin with the half cabinet service.
Question:   How many amps does a 1U server usually consume?
Answer:   Generally 1U consumes less than 1 amp. The $80 per 1U co-location service includes a maximum of 1 amp per1U. Each additional amp is $15 per month.
Question:   Can I request for a tour?
Answer:   Level 3 tours are available for half and Full cabinet customers only. As this is shared co-location, we recommend that you view the datacenter video for a tour of the infrastructure and building.
Question:   Am I limited to the amount of bandwidth I use?
Answer:   No. Co-Location.com provides only co-location services. We do not purchase equipment for customers.
