Pricing

Co-location pricing is based on the physical size (rack units) of the equipment to be installed as well as the number of network connections that are needed. A full rack can support 32U of equipment.

The One-Time Costs reflect the initial charges to have your equipment installed in the data center. The Recurring Costs reflect the annual ongoing charges after the first year, assuming that no changes are made to your equipment configuration.
