Rack Space in a colocation environment is a measure of the physical real estate occupied by your server(s). This space is measured in Units and is commonly referred to as "U"s. Each 1U is 1.75" Tall x 19" Wide x 34" Deep. If you have 3 servers, each using 1U of space, then you would need 3U in our Colocation rack.
Provider-one.net offers Colocation space in multiple sizes and configurations. For example, you can rent small amounts of rack space in a shared Colocation cabinet. This is commonly referred to as "Colo-by-the-U." If you only require a small amount of space for a single server or small web farm, this solution will be your best bet. We also offer quarter, half and full racks for larger Colocation requirements.
Our Colo Rack Mount Cabinets (physical footprint 800mm x 900mm x 47U), are configured to be compatible with most computer server manufacturer's equipment including: Compaq, Dell, HP, IBM, and Sun. All racks are connected to our conditioned power system with surge protection and battery backup capabilities so no additional power protection units are required.
