Affordable colocation – watch out for monthly cross-connect fees

Is affordable colocation possible?  It is, especially in the Midwest.  A few outsource data center facilities offer:

  • 99.995% uptime
  • pricing models where you can pay-as-you-grow
  • fair power billing based on actual electrical usage
  • no cross connect fees in a carrier neutral data center facilities
  • Fair pricing on managed services, if you need them.
  • data center certification such as SAS70, TIA 942 that helps you avoid the costs of these certifications

Are you shopping for off-site data center facilities?  Look for these features.  Many clients overpay for their colocation facilities.  Don’t be one of them.
