Radical Lower Cost Alternative To Traditional Datacentre Colocation
CoLocker has launched an alternative to traditional colocation based on lockers instead of 19” racks
traditional rack solutions. This opens up the colocation market to
Apple, Raspberry Pi and many other traditional Microsoft or Linux office type servers or PCs.
Customers are now no longer constrained by having to conform to products that can only be placed into a traditional rack format.
CoLocker is the first facility of this type in the UK.
'Whatever the product, if it fits into a locker then it can be hosted at our new facility in Milton Keynes'according to Colocker’s technical director Chris Wilkie. 'Pricing and options arekept as simple as possible in order to attract new customers trying newsolutions' he added.
The current trend for smaller more power efficient servers is facilitating the need for this type of flexible lower cost colocation according to John Woolley former Star™ Datacentre Manager, 'Colocker have taken a novel and imaginative approach to providing a very cost effective hosting proposition. If you need access to high speed, low latency, networks with a non-standard form factor, to not be charged per visit, and you are working with a tight budget, Co-Locker
could be the solution you are looking for.'
The Co-Locker facility offers easy and unlimited 24hr access whilst at the same time offering users high levels of security. 'This convenience is a feature that
traditional Datacentre/Colocation users have long been asking for.' added Wilkie. The facility is equidistant from London and Birmingham and situated very
close to the M1 for ease of access.
