  • I addet TNAhosting

    @robohost
    I will when i have the time to. But will be done...

  • nbiserv was addet

  • @robohost said:

    I fully agree

  • Genuine question: this seems quite expensive when you're supplying the hardware and have to replace it if it fails, etc. Why go for this over renting a server? I'm assuming it's unique hardware requirements but struggling to see a large market who want that.

    @cociu
    The main idea behind this discussion is to talk about Raspberry Pi colo. Can you offer this too?

  • Some more options (sadly i can not edit the original post any more):

    http://spectraip.net/
    https://nano-datacenter.com/

  • Would be interesting to know which of these support USB-C in their enclosures.

  • @MarkLuun note that in your list of colo companies, the PiHost which hosts Raspberry Pi in Switzerland for example provides you directly with a Raspberry Pi so I guess that is not co-location but more of a mini dedicated server as you don't even need to send them your hardware, they provide you with it.

    Yes, you are right. This was my mistake.

    @MarkLuun thanks for the answer and no problem. I think your list is very good and exhaustive. In my specific case I was looking for a place where the company provides the Raspberry Pi, so the PiHost in Switzerland was a good match from your list. I can imagine that more people like me don't want to send the hardware but would rather have the hardware included by the hosting company.

  • @hostingnugg
    In your case these could be interesting too:

    https://www.mythic-beasts.com/ UK
    https://www.buyapi.ca/ Canada
    https://easyserver.at Austria
    https://shop.finaltek.com/ CZ

    All these can provide a Pi for your colo. And in case you need something stronger then a Raspberry Pi i should be able to help.

  • @MarkLuun thanks for your list of additional Pi hosters. I was looking for something in Switzerland so the https://www.pihost.ch from your list is a good match and it's quite cheap too for Swiss prices. It's basically the cheapest mini dedicated server I could find in that country.

    The latest Raspberry Pi 4 with 4 cores and 4GB of RAM is strong enough for my usage.

    I talked to him some time ago. Sadly for my kind of project the price did not fit.

    Yes there is more then one in the list above. I tried to get in contact with galaxywebsolutions for some time now but this is harder then i expected. Their webchat does not work properly, their email filter blocks my email provider, no contact over facebook massage possible and their auto-phone callback service does not respond.
    I gave it up after all that. Sad because they seemed to be a good choise to me.

    Thanks the your insight, I also think it is important that the company or owner/staff can be trusted.

  • how many of these are actual colocation? (bring your own pi to there)?

    I've emailed a few providers over the last week and only mythic-beasts.com got back to me.
    Here's what they said:

    Our PiCloud is based on dense units of Pi3 with no physical access to each device. As a result we don't accept them for colocation as there is no way to remove a Pi3 and send it back to the owner, nor access an empty slot to put another Pi in once the unit is up in production.

    We're close to having Pi4 ready as a dedicated server on the same model.

    If you want to colocate your own Pi4, you'd need to put it into a half depth rack mount case, wire up the serial (so you can recovery it remotely) and include a power pack that accepts an IEC C14 connector. We'd then colocate at our Mac Mini price (£20/month + VAT).

    We're predicting that we'll be renting Pi4s in our cloud with network attached storage at around £7-£8/month by comparison.

    Yes, mythic-beasts.com does not really colocate in their standard package. They provide the device/virtual device. But „real colo“ was not asked for in the above message.

    The providers i can recommend from my own widely tested experience are Easyserver in Austria and Finaltek in Czech Republic.
    They have the best price/ service value, support is fast, friendly and helps with ANY problem that appears and no hidden extra fees are added at the end of the order process.
    I am running some TOR nodes on both networks and they are placed good in their center.

    And of course i am happy if you use my aff link if you decide to sign up at finaltek ;D. This will result in even more TOR nodes there:

  • But why? Its more expensive to host this than just get a VM or even the cheap atom dedis around. (assuming you'll be getting the paid colo). Why would people want this? I'd really like to know.

    Also, I think its more economic for everybody to just let the datacenter buy the pi rather than send them yours. Pi are just like $60 or less.

    This is really mind boggling for me.

    I think one major point, well at least for me, is that all cheap VMs you can get out there are all Intel (or at best AMD) based. With a Raspberry Pi you get an ARM CPU/architecture which is supposed to be safer than Intel. Think especially about Intel placing backdors in their chips and also at all the spectre, meltdown, MDS, etc vulnerabilities. I know ARM CPUs are also partly vulnerable to these attacks but never as bad as Intel.

    Then Raspberry Pi is a small company based in the UK and not a mega and monopolistic company such as Intel. So I rather give my money to such as small company which is not profit-based than to fatten already super rich CEOs who lie and try to hide all their security issues.

    Finally I also like that with a Raspberry Pi I get the full power of the machine which I do not have to share its resources with many other clients (some hosters pack hundreds of VMs on one single server). It is like you very own mini dedicated server with full power just for you.

    This is really mind boggling for me.

    First thing, i agree with hostingnugg when it comes to the "my unshared device theme". I also learned the last years that DC providers agree faster to host one or two small TOR nodes in their network when the device running TOR is seperated to the mashine other clients use. I think its the fact that, should the Pi be intercepted MY hardware is gone and other clients stay uninterrupted. I can understand that point.
    And the fact its using 5-10€ energy in one year under full load (depends on the board) is sympathic too.

    One more thing is that got access to over 25 of these boards, what was completely unexpected (Cubietrucks, Banana Pi's, Banana Pro's) and now i try to do something "worthy" with these small computers.

  • Someone here tried this provider?
    https://raspberry-hosting.com/en
    Seems to have nice prices but i read some unhappy costumer reviews talking about hidden costs. They never answered my emails asking if its ok to host a TOR relay there. so i never had the chance to try myself.

    Hi All,

    Ricky from Galaxy Web Solutions here.

    I just wanted to let everyone here know that we resolved all of these issues a while ago and wanted to apologise to anyone who had difficulty trying to contact us.

    We often respond within minutes to an hour during our office hours, so to hear that customers have tried contacting us and were unable to or didn't receive a response is not easy to hear and to be honest is quite embarrassing.

    We discovered that our live chat icon was sometimes showing even if we weren't actually online, which led to some messages being unanswered.

    We've also changed our phone system set up to ring multiple numbers at once rather than just one person and have changed our email filtering so there should be no difficulty in contacting us any more.

    Finally, we also enabled the messaging feature on our Facebook page, prior to this the 'message' button on Facebook displayed our phone number.

    We look forward to hearing from anyone looking for colocation or indeed any of the other hosting services we provide and apologise again to anyone who tried contacting us.
