Shared colocation: a personal welcome from as little as a single U

Shared colocation, which is data center space for 1U, 2U, 3U or other small-scale rack space. It’s still possible at DC1.AMSTERDAM; both accessible and future oriented.

It’s a trend: a large number of colocation providers in the Netherlands are stopping, or have already stopped, renting out individual rack units. That is unfavorable for the many businesses that still have good reasons to use precisely this professional colocation service. However, the solution is close at hand, because for shared colo, no matter how small, you can permanently turn to DC1.AMSTERDAM. Our colocation services are cost effective, low threshold and available for as long as you wish.

Shared colocation is of lasting interest to many companies

Demand for shared colocation is still substantial. We notice this ourselves when we rent out our racks by the unit. The reason for even small business to opt for physical business IT infrastructure, rather than purchasing services in the cloud? That could be compliance, for example, where cloud services are not always the permissible solution. And with that, placing (backup) equipment in a fire-safe, monitored, redundant data center, rather than more or less improvised in the office, is usually the obvious choice.

Cost effective

Shared colocation for 1U, 2U or 3U can be arranged well and professionally at DC1.AMSTERDAM, even cost effectively. This is in contrast to the cloud, which is often expensive. And certainly as opposed to being required (elsewhere) to purchase rack space of at least a quarter rack, or even more. Even if you don’t actually need that much…

Fixed power profile per device
However, DC1.AMSTERDAM will never offer you extra rack space unnecessarily. Nor will you incur excess power costs with us. This is because we jointly look at your likely power consumption in advance. We work with a fixed power profile per device, at a fixed cost. We also include internet data traffic and bandwidth for a fixed monthly fee.

Low threshold and helpful

Our colocation services are also low threshold. For example, we offer you free (on a fair use basis) hands on support during installation and RU setup if required. We have any necessary small basic materials on hand and these are included. You won’t face any worries or surprises; not even if the technical expertise for setting up the rack is (partly) lacking on your side.

Right from the beginning, we cooperate with you. What exactly do you need in terms of rack space and its contents, for your purposes? Redundancy or no redundancy? A second uplink or not? What shared colo aspects are specifically important for your business? We will help you get started personally and with care. And if you ever have a question or problem at a later time, you always be able to reach someone right away, and we’ll fix it for you.

DC1.AMSTERDAM is there for full and shared custom rack space

In short: does hybrid IT management consist of a smaller number of hardware components? Does the business still have serious loose server equipment ‘sitting in a corner’ somewhere? Are you stuck with a provider that has discontinued shared colo and limited data traffic?

A customized solution for any size
The need to house vulnerable data and IT infrastructure under the best conditions is not necessarily tied to size. In addition to full rack space, DC1.AMSTERDAM is and will remain equipped for shared colo. With customized solutions. Even against the trend.
