I'm looking into colocation of a 1U rackmount server at an ISP in the
Austin area. Does anyone on the list have experience with the ISPs here
in town? I'm looking for recommendations and warding off's.
Here's the information I have gathered on Core NAP.
o Dual-entry OC-48 SONET fiber.
o Sales contact: Nathan Graves 512.685.0006
There is no doubt that Core NAP is one of the premier access points in
the city, albeit smaller. They have the ISP science and facilities.
Their plan offerings break down using the following calculus:
o Lockable Cabinets. Comes in 1/3 or full rack packages. 1/3 rack == 14U.
o Wire Rack Space. Share open wire racks with other customers.
o Custom Cages. Cordoned spaces for the enterprise.
Bandwidth - using 1 or 2 100 Mbps ethernet connections, or fiber.
Industry standard 95th percentile technique samples the byte count of
each ethernet port every five minutes for the entire month and discards
the top 5% for usage calculations.
o Mbps calculus. Sample byte counts for the billing cycle are converted
into a Mbps rate at the 95th percentile. The higher of the
inbound/outbound pair becomes the billing rate for the billing cycle.
o GB transferred calculus. Sample byte counts for the billing cycle are
summed and the top 5% discarded. The total is compared against the
billing plan threshold.
