facilities, which can be added to your colocation services with us. These plans allow us to monitor the security

+How will I be billed for colocation services?
Bandwidth is billed at the 95th percentile. Also called, burstable billing. 95th percentile billing allows for a
server to be billed based on the average bandwidth usage for 95% of the month. During the other 5% of the month,
the server may exceed the average without suffering any additional costs or hidden charges.
+How much bandwidth is included with each colocation plan?
We will provide a custom quote based on the port speed and bandwidth requirements
project as well as the
data center/colocation facility selected. This will be billed at the 95th percentile

managed plans. As a colocation provider with experience working with multiple companies and colocation centers,
we are committed to providing you with all the tools and services you need to manage your servers within our
colocation data centers.
+Is there a maximum wattage for each colocation
The maximum wattage that a colocation
can carry will vary depending on the electrical feeds being
supplied and managed to the cabinet as well as various other factors. Depending on the installed equipment, a
typical rack’s wattage will range from 2-3 kW.
+How many IP addresses are included?
By default we include a /29 range when you rent space in a colocation facility. However, we can offer additional
IP ranges depending on your needs.

potentially be allocated accordingly. Talk to one of our colocation experts for more information.

+Can I setup internal direct connections among multiple cabinets in the same data center?
Yes. One of our data center engineers can assist you in determining the best course of action when it comes to
access and setup of infrastructure between cabinets and hardware space.
+How can I calculate my server infrastructure and resources max energy draw?
Because you are bringing your own servers over, the answer depends on many things. CPU configuration/efficiency,
number and type of installed hard drives, expansion cards, server load/purpose, can all impact the resources
used by your business servers. Consult your hardware manufacturer and/or reseller for advice on ascertaining
your system’s peak energy draw.
