FAQs about Colocation

Can we provide a self-assembled or vertical server for placement?

Colobridge technology platform is deployed in data centers in Germany, where a system of cold and hot aisles is used for cooling. The air in the racks moves according to the classic Front-to-Back scheme: cold streams are directed to the space in front of the equipment, and hot streams are taken behind it and directed to heat exchangers. From the heat exchanger, cooled air comes out, ready to be reused. This is an efficient cooling scheme that is technically challenging to implement when placing a vertical or self-assembled server.

We only practice rackmount server placement. The equipment must meet the specified electrical and fire safety specifications; it must also have the necessary accessories for installation. Power is connected in accordance with IEC-320-C13 or other standard as approved by Colobridge experts.

Physical size requirements for equipment:

  • Maximum width with mounting brackets is 482.6 mm (19 in.);
  • height to accommodate mounting equipment – 44.45 mm (1 unit);
  • distance between 19 profiles – 450 mm;
  • distance between mounting holes – 465 mm.

How do I calculate the cost of rack mount servers?

The Collocation service is charged according to the technical characteristics of the equipment (server, storage system, network equipment) on which the power consumption depends. The price will increase if additional services are ordered.

What guarantees of equipment availability will I receive and will I be compensated if they are not met?

The availability of your infrastructure under the SLA is guaranteed at 99.99%. Network availability depends on the configuration of the communication services ordered.
Compensation for Colocation service customers is calculated for a specific service based on the time during which it was unavailable. When renting a rack at a data center, compensation is paid at the rate of 1%, if the time of unavailability exceeds the allowable time of 1 to 4 minutes, at the rate of 5% – from 5 to 43 minutes, and at the rate of 10% – from 44 to 240 minutes. You can read more about guarantees and compensation here.

Can I install and configure the server myself if I rent racks in a data center?

We offer two options to clients who order our data center services. The first option is to install the equipment yourself, with a Colobridge technician standing by to supervise the process. The second option: order a paid “remote hands” service, and a technician will place the server in the data center and configure it under customer supervision who connects online or by phone.

Can I send you my server and how do I do that?

Yes, it is possible to rent space for a server or other equipment purchased by the customer. To ship it, please contact Colobridge team beforehand to agree on the address of our data center in Germany and send the equipment via a logistics company you trust.

Can I place previously purchased equipment with you?
