I'm looking at options for colocating a router, switch and a 1U server in either USA or Canada. Toronto preferably but I'm open to something like Chicago/Seattle.
I'll be requiring cross connects to a meet me room of some kind so I can buy transit.
I have a ASN and IP space.
Advice/suggestions/recommendations welcome, I'm new to the colocation side of things.
my options in Toronto are not looking too promising tbh
@nihl yes please
@packetcat might also want to look at montreal area, i know of a few datacenters and hosting providers based out of there. not sure what the connections are like tho.
@kepstin ah good idea, I'll have a look
@packetcat how much? Toronto's pretty pricey, I wound up going to Kitchener.
@tiff my budget isn't set in stone yet, still shopping around
Kitchener is fine, how much are you paying and what are you getting?
@packetcat I'm splitting a rack with a friend. My share for a 1U with 2A is $85/mo.
@packetcat I never looked into my own crossconnect though. The included connectivity was good enough for me.
who is the DC/provider?
