BurstNet Moving Colo Servers to North Carolina and Increasing Prices
Just saw this at WHT, this is alarming. My question is didn't they just open their Dunmore, PA datacenter? Are they closing that down and moving everything to North Carolina?
Over the years the cost for electric has consistently gone up, as well as many other expenses surrounding the COLO business. We, up until now, have been absorbing the cost spikes. Also, BurstNET is one of the only providers that does not require a 36 month contract and does not charge the average $399.00 set up fees.
Effective with your next billing cycle, New BurstNET COLO pricing, which includes monthly power, will be as follows:
Full Rack $899/month
Half Rack $499/month
Quarter Rack $299/month
Single Server $99/month
Due to our prior and estimated growth, we are heavily investing in the business. Your COLO racks/Servers have been selected to be relocated. We are upgrading our COLO facility to the following:
Our Tier 3 Data Center in North Carolina
More Redundant Network with 3X the carriers currently provided
Double the bandwidth capacity
Type II audited facility
These changes will go into effect on your next billing cycle and your servers will be moved on Sunday March 30th 2014. You will receive another update with service downtime to accommodate the move. Assume your servers will be offline from 9PM ET Sunday March 30th until Monday March 31st 9AM ET.
