Who is Server Housing and Colocation suitable for?

Find out more about the conditions

Would you like your IT infrastructure to be professionally operated, but setting up your own data centre is out of the question due to the high costs and limited personnel resources? Then colocation is the right choice for you. Use the dedicated and lockable 19” racks in plusserver’s highly secured data centres, where you can professionally operate your own IT equipment.

For each dedicated rack you receive 2 x 16 amp power including emergency power supply, optimised rack air conditioning and 24/7 monitoring of the data centres. If required, you can always hire one of our experienced plusserver technicians to immediately intervene in case of a fault in your environment.

We offer colocation at our locations in Germany. Simply choose your desired site and then choose the approximate power requirements for running your infrastructure. It is of course also possible to obtain additional power at any time beyond your previously selected included volume. You then simply pay for the additional consumption in your next monthly bill.

Connecting your dedicated colocation rack is done via a transfer LAN (the Shared Switching Uplink). You can flexibly choose between 100 Mbit/s and 10 Gbit/s.

The traffic for your colocation is booked separately, but a traffic volume of 100 Mbit/s is already included. Corresponding IP networks for public communication over the internet are assigned in accordance with the RIPE-guidelines (IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC Service Region).

Optionally, you can also equip your Dedicated Colocation Rack with 4 x 16 amps. Site redundancies are also possible at several plusserver data centres. plusserver’s comprehensive management and service capabilities are also available to you, to help unburden your own staff or increase your infrastructure performance. Your sales representative will be happy to advise you about this.

Twin-site strategy for maximum availability

plusserver customer Midoco GmbH operates a cloud-based ERP system for the travel industry in a twin-site colocation at plusserver. The data are synchronously mirrored so that the site which is not affected can take over in the event of a fault. plusserver is the only provider in the Rhine-Ruhr region to offer this dual-site concept. It supplies SMEs with highly secure and highly redundant co-location solutions, which are otherwise only found in the enterprise sector.
