Thanks, Michael. However, I will note that we don't do co-location --
managed hosting and virtual hosting. We don't allow third-party access
our site, which has its advantages and disadvantages.
The advantages are that we provide the hardware, so you don't have to
manage or keep spares, etc... If it breaks at 3am on a Saturday
because we own the hardware we can go in and take care of it without
bothering you. But, if you really want to own the hardware, this is a
disadvantage. We also do monitoring of the system.
To give you an idea, pricing is $150/month for a core 2 duo system with
dual RAID-1 1TB drives and 2GB of RAM. We also have virtual systems
512MB RAM and 40GB disc for $25/month.
The facility we're in doesn't do anything smaller than a whole cabinet,
so it's probably not an option unless your budget is at least a grand
a month. It is indeed in Denver, near I-25 and I-70, and it's a great
facility. It's called Fortrust and if you're looking for a whole
or more I'd highly recommend them.
I'm not that familiar with area colo providers, because I'm just not in
that market, but I've heard good things about Netrack in Boulder, and
they'll do single systems. I believe Data393 will also do smaller
allocations, but they're located in the DTC.
