Shared Colocation Racks
For our clients with requiring less rackspace, we offer our shared colo-rack plans. With our shared colo-racks, your equipment is placed in a rack that is shared with other clients who also only require 1 & 2 Us of space. Our clients in these racks still have full access to their machines, however, this access is support-staff accompanied to ensure the security of other clients' equipment in the rack. We do recommend our clients in the shared co-lo rack schedule an appointment with our support staff to ensure someone is available for the accompaniment, however, if an emergency was to occur our support staff is available.

  • Space for a 1U server
  • 1 access connection to a shared 120V 20 Amp power circuit

SO, WHY HARD DRIVE HOTEL?


Experienced support team

Our 24/7/365 support team is dedicated to managing your hosting environment. Each of our support team members have spent a number of years in the industry, including many members with 25+ years of experience supporting hosting providers. Their experience has provided them the opportunity to gain knowledge in range of configurations and hosting solutions. Their knowledge is beneficial to our clients as they can help create custom solutions for your unique configuration and hosting needs.


High quality equipment

Ensuring your solutions retain their uptime requires high quality equipment. We work with a number of hardware vendors to provide clients with high quality, new hardware. In the rare event the hardware was to experience a failure, inventory is kept onsite to ensure replacement is readily available to get your services back online as quickly as possible.


We build reliability

Controlling our own network, purchasing high quality equipment, and employing experienced support team members are only a few examples of how we have built reliability into our systems. We understand if your web services are down, your business is down.

Redundancy, redundancy, redundancy...

Redundancy is the key to maintaining uptime. We strive to ensure there is no single point of failure among any system within our network. In almost all instances, we even have a backup to our backup. We understand there is always a risk for failure, but we also understand if you take precautions and build redundancy into your systems the risk for failure is greatly diminished.


We own our own data center!

Our data center in Royal Oak, Michigan was built with redundancy in mind, we have multiple generators, redundant power sources, multiple network carriers, etc. Owning our own data center allows us to control the entire network and services that support the network and your servers. Data center ownership also ensures the guarantees we make of reliability, redundancy, and high quality equipment are true statements. By having these redundancies in place and the backing of our support team extensive knowledge and expertise, we have maintained 100% uptime since opening in April 2008.
