Re: [LUAU] Really simple colocation

Hi Jeff,

I haven't run into any local co-location companies that sell less than a 1U
rack space.  I think it would make more economical sense to sign up for a
web hosting account.

Good luck!
Laurence

Subject: [LUAU] Really simple colocation

Hi Guys!

 I am frustrated with hosting companies not offering quite what I want,
or changing ownership and then features, or suffering from strangely slow
MySQL servers.  I'm wondering if there is a very very basic colocation
option in town that will give me an IP address on a pipe with low down-time,
and UPS-backed power for me to plug a small box into.  I don't need loads of
monthly bandwidth or even a whole U in a rack.  I just want to run a basic
Drupal site for a local company that doesn't get huge amounts of site
traffic. Something as simple as an Asus EeeBox is all I need.  (No, really,
just a 2 GB RAM Atom box running Linux is more than enough).

 Has anyone found a good local company that does this for a low monthly
rate?

Thanks for reading this and giving it some consideration, -Jeff

Aloha Jeff,


I use Net Bnterprise on Bishop St to feed the net using FreeBSD servers 
located in my shed in Wahiawa and have setup a Linux firewall on my lan 
hooked to them on different dsl line. Firewall is also located in my 
shed. (I have backup power for 10 hrs from stationary batteries.)
For many years now I have no issues that were not rectified immediately. 
 (Ex: DSL dropped (Telcom Issue but Net Enterprise Techs got immediate 
action.)
