Colocation

Datacenter colocation is one of the two primary services IO Cooperative provides. Our members colocate hardware in our datacenters to run their small businesses, support their non-profits, and host their personal projects.

Since IO Cooperative is a consumer cooperative, it’s owned by the members. As a result, our prices are derived directly from our costs for power, space and bandwidth plus 20% for the infrastructure.

Colocate your server»

$65/month 1 rack mountable server, up to 2U in size
0.75amps at 110v power and cooling
up to 4 IPv4 addresses
0.5Mbps at 95th percentile with 100Mbps burst capability
1 serial console port
up to 2 remote power cyclable power outlets
$48/month 1 additional amp @ 110v of power and the associated cooling. For example, if your host uses 1.12amps this would constitute (1.12 – 0.75 = 0.37) 0.37amps over the base or $17.76/month
$12/month 1 additional Mbps of bandwidth @ 95th percentile. For example, if your month bandwidth usage at 95th percentile is 750kbps this would constitute (0.75 – 0.5 = 0.25Mbps) 0.25Mbps over the base or $3/month
$1/month 1 additional IP address over the base of 4
