I have a tower server that is located in our main office. Through some changes in what we are doing, I need to access this server remotely more often than locally. At this point, I am starting to run into limitations related to the cable-modem based internet connections we are using. I am thinking about moving the server to a colocation center. Most of those require the servers to be in a 19in rack configuration, some seem to offer space for servers in a tower form factor. My bandwith needs are not that high, I just need something better than the 'upload' that our different cable providers offer, I also want to have this critical business data better secured than I can provide at our office. Also, the cable modem goes down ever so often, while working locally that is not much of an issue as the 3G stick I use for failover does a good job of keeping us connected to the world. Still, having the server on a professional redundant connection would be very desireable. I am new to this world of colocation services: What are the things to look out for ? Has anyone put a tower server into a data center ? Does any of our resident geeks happen to have a recommendation for a data center in the metro DC area / northern VA ?
