Mailbox co-lo - honest opinions

2001-02-09 Thread Neil Ford

Well it looks like I have my first serious customer and I need to 
find a home for a machine for them.

My first instinct is to put the box in Mailbox as it'll be fairly low 
usage but with the recent outage to london.rhizo I'm concerned what 
Mailbox's record is like.

I have an alternative location but they require a 1U server which is 
going to greatly increase the inital cost.

I know a number of people on here have boxes at Mailbox, so I'd be 
interested to hear people's thoughts. On the list or by private email 
is fine.

Thanks in advance.

Neil.

That is the first major outage I've noticed.

Indeed. Real people to talk to. Real people to help out when things
inevitably go pear shaped. Real people to plug things in and unplug them.

I've been banging their drum since '98. Good folk, in it for the joy
rather than merciless customer accruement.
