The market for server housing and colocation is highly competitive. In addition, the requirements of customers based on the size of their own IT infrastructure are constantly increasing. As a server housing provider, you need competitive market prices. However, you can only achieve this goal if you reduce your server housing costs. The experts at Cadolto Datacenter will show you how to best influence the receipts/expenditure ratio and to assert yourself on the market.
How are server housing prices calculated?
Size and capacity
Cheaper server housing solutions generally offer less rack space, such as one rack unit (1RU). Higher-priced options might offer more storage space or even entire racks.
Power supply and cooling
Offers in the lower price segment often come without emergency power supply and cooling systems. More expensive server housing providers usually offer newer and more environmentally friendly solutions, as the data centres are more energy efficient. They also boast an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and enhanced cooling. This is particularly important for high-performance servers or servers that need to guarantee a high level of availability.
Bandwidth and network access
For applications with a high throughput of data or low latency, higher priced offerings can provide a higher bandwidth and better network connections.
Security and surveillance
More expensive server housing solutions often ensure more rigorous security measures, such as enhanced physical security, monitoring and access controls.
Higher-priced offerings might come with detailed support and service level agreements (SLAs) that guarantee more uptime and faster problem solving.
Other offerings, such as managed services, backups, disaster recovery and further specialised IT services, can also lead to greater server housing costs for the end user.
What influences server housing costs?
Other cost factors may be:
Location of the data centre
Backup and redundancy systems
Software licences and certifications
Adherence to standards and data privacy acts
