Making intelligent choices in Florida colocation
How is your data center connected?
When analyzing the various options available when looking for the best Florida colocation, of course primary is location, as in a proximity to the main office for the particular corporation. However, there are many options that will make themselves available to you for a Florida colocation, whereas one of the main considerations could also be how that data center is connected and how that might impact your connectivity back to the offices that need to access the colocation facilities.
How to choose the best Florida colocation facility
If your business needs colocation in Florida, you are making that decision primarily for the regional aspect of having your servers in proximity to your main office. However, a very important consideration is also how that colocation facility is either Internet connected, and therefore well-peered with the various locations that must consume those resources, or, more specifically, how you are going to connect your office, your remote branches and your main office, back to that colocation facility.
One key advantage: Florida colocation from a central location
The Gainesville Data Center is located in North-Central Florida, and is conveniently located between a number of major metropolitan areas such as Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa, but also is near some other areas similar in size to Gainesville such as Lake City, Ocala, Chiefland and Palatka, Florida. And the epicenter of that is a colocation facility that not only meets a number of Tier Certifications and quality standards for colocation that are pretty standard, but the key advantage of the Gainesville Data Center is Acceleration’s connectivity into that data center—that being a mix of diverse peering products from the local utility, from Cox Communications, Gainesville Regional Utilities, and AT&T, the three companies that have available fiber in this region.
On this solid foundation is where we build your network
On top of that, what Acceleration can offer is a mix of Metro Ethernet and other DSL-based connectivity options, to bring the data center into the epicenter of a corporate, wide area network. That is, if you’re going to colocate servers, in particular if you’re needing Florida colocation, a good option is the Gainesville Data Center, whereas you place those servers in the “center of mass” of a wide area network for your corporation, where your main office and any remote or branch offices equally have access back to the Gainesville Data Center facilities.
“We do not cap bandwidth on our co-located servers.”
What separates our Data Center is performance and support.
Co-located server solutions cater mainly to developers or companies that have special needs not fulfilled by our dedicated hosting solutions. In a co-located environment, the server is provided by the client and therefore can be built to their exact specifications. The client can run any operating system, any software, with any configuration they require. Co-located server plans can be a cost effective alternative for businesses that require large amounts of power, cooling or bandwidth and do not desire to invest in the infrastructure necessary to host a server at their location.
What separates Acceleration is performance. We do not cap bandwidth on our co-located servers. Rather, we charge based on your aggregate usage or what we call ‘peak continuous bandwidth’. This insures the best possible performance for your server.
Pricing for co-location is based on peak continuous bandwidth usage, total number of powered devices, and amount of rackspace required.
|Server Plan||Peak Continuous Bandwidth||Price|
Each server plan includes one device of up to four rack spaces (7″).
|Additional rackspace per unit (1.75″)||$10/month|
|Additional powered or networked devices||$20/month|
