Hi all,
I recently started building a datacenter for a recent contract. The datacenter is in a state of constant upgrade but the need by the contract does not yet completely use the compute time available as such I am selling spare compute time on it to pay for the power of running the extra server equipment. If you would like to purchase some compute time or virtualize your workspace I can provide necessary specs and possibly software depending on the application you want to run on the server. Majority of payment methods are accepted.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

You mean dedicated server right?

A datacenter is the entire building that hosts hundreds of servers?

Sorry not a dedicated server that is one of the things being offered for rent. I currently have over 30 servers running with 10 more coming in tomorrow.

Oh right, Nice. So you have quite a bit of rackspace.

What DC are these located in out of interest?

I am running the whole thing out of a container at my house so I can do maintenance and upgrades.

Cost for 8U Colo'd? What sort of network connectivity do you have? Redundancy on it? Dual power with UPS & generator backing? Cooling? Fire suppression?

Ok so assuming you have a 1Gbit Symetrical business fibre link, with 40 servers, That's only 25Mbit per server.  Don't most DCs offer 100mbit connections?

Yes, but at entry level it's usually contended, not dedicated.

I have fitted a shipping container to take racks and cooling. The servers I'm offering to rent are all available with internet currently only at 1mbps but by the end of this year setup with fibre I don't know the speed of the fibre connection yet though.

No I do not have a fibre link yet as in my other comment that's at the end of this year at the moment it's 1mbs per server the majority of the compute power being used currently is for offline compute.

Is that like some dual hex core with 128GB ram and 4SSD's?

I better hope it is.
Pro tip. Dont use ADSL for hosting servers.
