    Cheapest Colocation in the World

    skyhost_ruskyhost_ru Member, Provider

    Hi guys!

    I want to find the cheapest Datacenter in the World :).
    May be we can make a TOP-10 list.
    For example I know DC:
    Irkutst, Russia / Tier-II / $100 per rack / $40 per kW
    Moscow, Russia / Tier-III / $150 per rack / $100 per kW

    What about real good worldwide price?

    • @cociu has cheap space

      I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
      Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

      Besides the fact that cheap colos are usually cheap for a reason, your desired list would be largely worthless.
      Irkutsk btw. is 50? 70? ms from Moscow which itself is about 50 ms from Central Europe.

      You missed the relevant parameters, like for example

      • power density per rack - The cheapest power prices are worth little when you get just 3.5 kW of it per rack. Todays servers are typically in the range of 150W (single low power processors, 32 GB or less memory, single SSD) to 600+W with about 300 W being the average for an average server. Even if packing them losely (2 HU) that's 2 16 Amp lines - and keep in mind that that power must also been taken care of once it's converted to heat.
        Use densely packed Blade servers and you are easily crossing the 10 kW line. You won't find many providers offering that.

      • carriers and bandwidth - How many carriers, what spread of carriers (local, international, cheap expensive, etc.) and with how much bandwidth are available at a given DC?

      • location - How many hops and ms are major regions like Western, Central, Eastern Europe, and US West and East coast as Central USA away? I won't quarrel over 10 ms. difference or even 20 but once the difference reaches 50 ms I'll be concerned.
      • Quality - Some people call a large basement with some 2nd hand cheap racks a colo. I however call that "Tier 0". So, Do they have good 120 cm deep racks available? Real 24/7 hands? Lockers for customer spare parts? Real security? What's the distance to the next significant city, international airport, and rail station?

      Well noted I would be very interested in something like serverhunter but for colos or even just a halfway up to date list with at least the major parameters of many colos, but your x $ per kW, y $ per rack game is worthless and not even entertaining.

    • $40/kw (Irkutsk) is craazy, it's around 5 cents per kwh, much less than commercial or residential electricity around here. Installing gear in Irkutsk is probably impractical for most of us though.

      Obviously Europe (-Russia) can not compete with Russia in terms of el. power cost.

      But still, many don't know that, prices in Europe are by no means similar. In Germany, for example, the cost of 1 kW is almost 3 times the cost in e.g. Romania which is about double of the cost in Russia.
      Btw, The cost in France is about 35% lower than in Germany. When talking about MW that's a MAJOR difference, especially for data centers where el. power cost is a major cost factor anyway.

      Thanked by 1receivedthanks
    • Btw, The cost in France is about 35% lower than in Germany.

      which is why some of the largest hosters in Germany moved to France. (eg Plusserver, Host Europe, domainfactory)

      Why so excited? Based on what I heard it is true that you sometimes don't respond to tickets for days or even weeks.

      I think that everybody - incl. yourself - would be better off if you simply brought up your operations to an acceptable level, because I think that you could actually be a good provider.

      CoreSite, QTS, and Equinix will do similar with A+B in most places. With enough commit, ~$200/kw should be what you're aiming for after all negotiation.
