If you want a firewall and would like us to manage it for you. Our firewalls are PFSense, appliances running in a High Availability Cluster.
Each Cheapest Colocation includes a TB of data transfer on a 100Mbit connection each month. We have several options for increasing this, either by purchasing additional TB or by upgrading to a dedicated connection. We also have other options available and would be more than happy to advise you of the most suitable for you, please get in touch.
IP Address Blocks
Each colocation server will receive a routed block of IP addresses, this is the most secure way of allocating IP addresses, as IP addresses cannot be accidently used by others. Each block has a total number of addresses and a usable number of addresses. The usable number is always (on our networks) three less than the overall number of addresses.
If you require more than 64 IP addresses a justification would need to be made to RIPE, we can assist you with the justification and complete the required paperwork, please get in touch to discuss your requirements further.
We are able to provide you with additional network ports for connecting to your servers iLo | iDRAC | IPMI or for resilience.
Additional Power Sockets
If your server has more than one power supply we can provide an additional power socket so you can have increased resilience.
Additional Power in Amps
All Cheapest Colocation comes with a whole amp of power, which is enough for most servers, some older or very powerful servers may require more than this. We are able to measure the consumption of your server when it is installed. Additional power is available for £15.00 per half Amp.
