FAQs about Colocation

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

The Colobridge technology platform, operational in data centers located in Germany, employs a cooling system utilizing cold and hot aisles. Air circulation follows the Front-to-Back scheme: cold streams are directed to the front of the equipment, while hot streams are channeled to the rear and directed to heat exchangers. Cooled air is then released from the heat exchanger, optimized for reuse. This cooling scheme, efficient and technically intricate, poses challenges when accommodating vertical or self-assembled servers.

At Colobridge, we exclusively facilitate the placement of rackmount servers. The equipment must conform to specified electrical and fire safety standards and include necessary accessories for proper installation. Power connections adhere to the IEC-320-C13 standard or any other standard approved by Colobridge experts.

Physical size requirements for equipment include:

  • Maximum width with mounting brackets: 482.6 mm (19 in.)
  • Height for mounting equipment accommodation: 44.45 mm (1 unit)
  • Distance between 19-inch profiles: 450 mm
  • Distance between mounting holes: 465 mm

How do I calculate the cost of rack mount servers?

The Colocation service is priced based on the technical specifications of the equipment (servers, storage systems, network equipment), with the cost influenced by power consumption. Additional services will incur an increase in the overall price.

What are the guarantees of equipment availability and if they are not available what are the compensation policies?

Under the Service Level Agreement (SLA), we ensure the availability of your infrastructure at an impressive 99.99%. Network availability is contingent on the configuration of the communication services ordered.

For Colocation service customers, compensation is determined based on the specific service’s downtime. Compensation rates are structured as follows:

  • 1% compensation for downtime exceeding the allowable time of 1 to 4 minutes.
  • 5% compensation for downtime ranging from 5 to 43 minutes.
  • 10% compensation for downtime spanning from 44 to 240 minutes.

Detailed information on guarantees and compensation can be found here.

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

Clients ordering our data center services have two installation options:

Option 1: Self-Installation with Colobridge Technician Supervision:

Paid “Remote Hands” Service:
