    RackSpace

    Hi All

    I have a 2U server which is currently running at home. I am looking to move this, and am looking for a datacenter i can place my server into thats not going to cost the earth.

    Do anyone know of a company that provides this kind of service? that also doesn't cost the earth...

    Thanks

    Why not just rent server space? gotta be cheaper than storing your own server in a datacentre?

    Unless you actually need a physical server in a DC why not just get a hosted server out in the cloud somewhere - you can get virtual servers for next to nothing as month now.

    Not really, take a look at GoDaddy for example,

    Windows dedicated server, Intel I5, 2TB disk space, and 8GB RAM, for this your looking at 149.99 plus VAT each month.

    Vs

    my own custom Dell PowerEdge 2050, not the newest of kit, but with 2 quad core processors and 32GB of RAM, and 4 x 3TB HDD and 2 x SSD disks you can see why I would rather pay for storage, than rent from GoDaddy, plus the server is mine, not some 3rd party. I would also be very happy to pay the same kind of cash to host mine.

    I'm interested, why would you want to store it in a data centre instead of at home?

    Would Windows Azure IaaS - Virtual Machines work out for your requirements? :-)

    You're looking for a co-location host really. Loads of them around. Seeing where you are, you'll probably want one around London/South East. (Unless you fancy driving up to Manchester that is).

    This company does 2U hosting for about 62 a month for their lowest packages. Host-it - Customer supplied dedicated server hosting colocation colo

    I've not used Co-location myself, always stumped up for dedicated servers (no capital outlay).
