Got back into colocation because The Satellite Internet Out here in the Country Sucks!
The service is Horrible! No static IP; No hosting. The few wireless providers are expensive and the only other company I would of liked to try has me in a blind spot from their towers.
I had a few people ask me about websites/making apps and the wife wanted to test some code and the only way to get a server going was to setup a raspberry pi at grandmas in the city and vpn but I needed more power. I needed to get back into colocation.
I like using my own hardware that way I know what I am dealing with. I also like going in to a facility with good security and having that badge and key to open up the server locker. I get a power plug and a cat 6 cable or choice of fiber.
I provide the switch and servers. Forced to lease half a rack around 21u’s of space.
Its one of them things you got to make it work to make money.
Because if you aint going to make money then there is no reason to even get a colocation space.
Possibilities are endless if you got a plan. My plan was to shove like 50 raspberry pis, a few towers running ubuntu and host some apps for people 😀
