If you can stretch to a whole rack... I went to check out NextDC the other day in Brisbane and it f*****g rocks. You have to organise your own transit but they have everyone there and their facility is awesome.

We have CoLo sites at ECN in Toowong, GCOMM on the Gold Coast and years ago at iSeek at Woolloongabba (not sure if they still offer it though). We also have a client with servers in the AAPT DC at 100 Wickham Tce in the Valley. I guess it depends on what you're after.

ECN and GCOMM are great companies to deal with, not sure what their policies on 24- hour access are though, but we've never had a problem getting access to any gear hosted with them. AAPT is AAPT, but you've got to jump through a lot of hoops each time you want to get onto the floor.

IIRC around ~1800 for 3kW, but they can go up to 5kW. The racks are all locked and you can unlock them with an iPhone app / website so you can get remote hands in there easily. I can connect you with one of their sales people if you're interested in more deets.

ECN are small, but I find that they're always willing to go above and beyond to help. As for GCOMM, you've been having problems with them? We've got a number of systems co-located with them and haven't had a single problem :S

If NextDC (who, to second Trog, I also have heard great things about) turn out to be too expensive, you could also look at Brennan IT's DC on Amelia St in the Valley. Or possibly Pipe Network's DC3/DC4, but that may be getting too pricey for you.

I really like NextDCs model - they call it "data centre as a service". So they just give you a place to throw stuff and you deal with everything else. We are looking at them as a possible next expansion point for Mammoth VPS. They have Sydney and Melb DCs coming online "soon" - IIRC the Melbourne one is their flagship one and will be something like the biggest in the southern hemisphere maybe (17,500sqm).

I know the guys that started NextDC and they are excellent operators. Shame it's a full rack only.. Maybe Mammoth Networks can resell RU space?

Bevan Slattery is one of the owners of NextDC. He was the guy that co-founded Pipe networks as well so they're not really new to the whole DC workspace.

Herbal, how much power do u think you will need and what bandwidth would your 300gb need in sustained megabits?

We have a rack in Vocus in Sydney and we do selected colo for businesses, but no game servers/leech boxes etc.

Crusher power I would need to work out the exact draw I have it...somewhere

Transit is based on current usage mid 200's. Its a busy little kaseya server which does a couple of other things

It's on our (or at least, my) TODO list as a possible expansion point, but for now and the immediate future we're not looking at doing colo/dedicated.

I had a look through Brennan's setup in the Valley a while ago, they were just starting out but had good foundations. I also had a look at iseek's datacentre on Ipswich Road at the Gabba. Neither of them were somewhere I would put my gear but it was around 18months ago when I went for a look so they may be better.

Got a few machines colo'd at Sanity Tech in the Valley and can't recommend them enough.

A rack with 500gb + 10A would be about $1500 ex GST

I have 12 racks hosted with iSeek spread between both their DC's at Eagle Farm and the gabba. Had a really good run with them, great service, quite flexible and very professional.
