SERVER COLOCATION IN MONTREAL The Server colocation montreal market is growing and so are your needs. Are you paying the right price for your colocation services What should you pay for rackspace Some data centers have a one time install fee depending on the size and number of racks others have recurring fees. WHAT SHOULD YOU BE PAYING FOR YOUR COLOCATED DATA CENTER  Power rate This is the big one. How much do you pay for your power You can find cheap N+1 power and quality 2N power. Depending on your needs N+1 may get the job done but if you really need maximum uptime 2N is the way to go. From our research we have found prices from 250/KW/Month to 450/KW/Month. Depending on the location of the facility prices will change a lot. In our opinion if you are paying over 375/KW/Month odds are you are paying too much unless the data center has a really special location or added value.  Cross-connects

slide 2:

Cross-connects… probably the thing everyone hates paying. But hey its part of the business and you need connectivity. Young and smart colocation providers will charge a setup fee usually 500 and a very basic montly fee 0-75/month. However that does not represent the market. For copper cross-connects you should pay from 50 to 100 per month not more. For single mode fiber cross-connects 75 to 150/month is reasonable. There are some providers that charge obscene prices upwards of 325/Month. For different reasons but we consider that you should never do business with such providers unless you are forced to. COLOCATION | LOCATION DE CHAMBRES – MONTREALCOLO This seemed to work pretty well has they are rumors that they will build to other identical facilities for a total of 90MWs of dedicated facilities in addition of the few Colocation Montreal POPs they have in Montreal.
