Colocation

Overview

Colocation is the practice whereby businesses situate their own server(s) at our premises to take advantage of HostAway’s high speed network backbone. There can be substantial savings in equipment and infrastructure costs for ventures which require high capacity/high reliability connectivity to the Internet.

Our standard pricing options are detailed below but we are able to tailor packages to your specific requirements for larger projects. Please contact us directly for further information.

There are 5 hours of supervised physical access to your equipment provided per month during business hours. Additional or after hours access can be arranged and is charged at standard rates.

Features

  • UPS conditioned power
  • Diesel Generator Backup
  • 24×7 Supervised Access

HostAway’s premises are security monitored 24/7 with thermal and intrusion detectors installed throughout the building. There are 3 layers of security gates and meshing protecting our server room. HostAway staff are generally onsite between 8:30am and 5pm Monday through Friday.

Excess Data Pricing

Pre-paid Data

For high traffic users we have a range of data packages available. This service is targeted for users who know they will have a continual and high data usage and need to be able to accurately predict their costs in advance and also be certain that their content will be delivered at acceptable speeds.

This data allowance is a cumulative amount for inbound and outbound traffic, i.e. a 50GB package allows 25GB inbound and 25GB outbound traffic (or any combination of the two with a sum of 50GB). If you exceed the data allowance you will be charged for the excess data at the below ‘per MB’ rates, or you can upgrade to a higher data package – whichever is least expensive.

Data packages are in addition to the standard Colocation rates and are available in the following sizes:

      • 50GB: $95/month
      • 100GB: $185/month
      • 150GB: $277.50/month
      • 200GB: $360/month
      • 250GB: $437.50/month
      • 300GB: $510/month
      • 400GB: $660/month
      • 500GB: $800/month
      • For larger packages please contact us for a quote

Post-Paid Data

Post-paid data is charged per MB at the following rates:

      • 0-10 GB: 1c / MB
      • 10-20 GB: 0.75c / MB
      • 20-30 GB: 0.5c / MB
      • 30+ GB: 0.3c / MB

Please Note: If you do not have a data package excess charges are applied to either inbound or outbound traffic depending on which is greater.

Eg: If you have a 5 GB limit, you can send 5120 MB to your site and receive 5120 MB from your site without paying any extra. If on the other hand your host receives only 100 MB but sends 6.6 GB you pay the excess above the 5 GB (ie. 1600 MB, which is 1600*1c = $16.00). If your host sends 6.6 GB and receives 8.7 GB you pay the excess for the higher amount only (ie. 3700*1c = $37.00 extra). For customers with a consistently high usage a data package is recommended – details of these packages are listed above.

Additional Services

IP-KVM

Hostaway offers an Internet accessible (K)eyboard (V)ideo (M)ouse Service. Many customers with colocated servers have, at some point in time, required a console to be plugged into their machine for troubleshooting. In some cases, this may also require an on-site visit to make use of the console to fix any problems that can’t be solved by a simple reboot. With Hostaway’s IP-KVM service, you no longer need to come out to site to get a console on your server. Using a remote-client, you can connect to our KVM from your office or home over the internet and be presented with the functionality of a KVM. If you have multiple servers, the IP-KVM port can be connected to another multi-port non-network enabled KVM with hotkey channel selection capability. This ‘add on’ KVM can be purchased, leased, or provided by you.

Special: We will postpone the setup fee for you for a period of one month to allow you to trial this service. If you wish to keep going with the service, you can at this point pay the setup fee. If not, the IP-KVM service may be cancelled without attracting any further cost!

      • Setup: $150
      • Monthly: $20/month

IP-Power Switch

Hostaway now offers an Internet accessible Power Switch. On the odd occasion, you may be required to power-cycle (forcefully rebooting) your server if it stops responding. Hostaway’s IP-Power Switch will allow you to do this from your web browser any time day or night.

Special: We will postpone the setup fee for you for a period of one month to allow you to trial this service. If you wish to keep going with the service, you can at this point pay the setup fee. If not, the IP-Power Switch service may be cancelled without attracting any further cost!

      • Setup: $50
      • Monthly: $20/month
