Hetzner's New Colocation

German web hosting provider Hetzner announced it has opened two new colocation areas that are based in data centers in Nuremberg and Falkenstein, Germany.

Colocation centers are in secured buildings, have uninterruptible power supply (UPS, diesel generator), air conditioned environment and 24/7 customer service by staff that is fluent both in German and English. Customers can visit their colocation facilities around the clock.

Colocation rack "Basic" (width 60 cm, depth 80 cm) costs €199/month plus €199 setup fee (incl. VAT)

Colocation rack "Advanced" offers energy efficient cold environment, and extra deep (depth 120 cm) rack. "Advanced" costs €299/month plus €299 setup fee (incl. VAT). In February 2013 the setup of "Advanced" is free.
Connection speed is 1000 Mbit/s.

 

Colocation is a service which lets customers install their own server hardware in controlled environment with good connection speed, redundant power supply and security. It's the next step to be taken when dedicated servers and the software installed in them offered by hosting companies is not enough.
