The system uses dynamic sliders and other quick and easy to use inputs (pictured) to generate live quotes based on Rack Space, Power, Connectivity, and other extra options, building a live quotation right in your browser. This can then be emailed to you for reference, and to freeze your quoted price indefinitely.
Managing Director, Matthew Butt gave comment on the company's new Colocation Calculator;
"We built this system with the end-user in mind. We know that not everyone wants to start lengthy discussions with a host from day one - sometimes they just want some pricing to get the ball rolling. Our customers have always enjoyed our pricing transparency, and we hope this helps further solidify our position as the data centre to watch in the coming months and years. Not only are we routinely one of the highest-value colocators in the industry, we are also supremely upfront with our pricing - something missing in today's market."
Netwise Hosting are planning to develop this idea further in the very near future, with additional features that Senior Manager, Matt Seaton hopes will become a widely used set of tools on the net.
"We have a trademarked service coming soon called PowerTools that will extend this system even further, with the ability to estimate power usage very accurately based on a range of popular hardware sets. Soon after, we hope to include a comparison service, whereby our live quotes are pitched against key competitors to give users a tangible idea of how well we are placed within the market. We are undoubtedly the only data centre in the world pushing these ideas forward, and hope that this brings us a great deal of success in the future."

What is 'Colocation'
Server colocation is the placing of one's own equipment within a data centre, rather than renting hardware from them as is the case with dedicated servers. Outsourcing your firms IT equipment in this way ensures access to the very best in power, connectivity, cooling, and support, and can drastically reduce operating costs for your organisation.
