I'm looking for a good collocation host in Los Angeles. I've looked at quite a few hosts, but found precious few reviews. Has anyone had particularly good or bad experiences that can point me in a good direction?

We will be starting out with 2U's and I'm leaning towards burstable bandwidth rather than 95th percentile.

Thanks for the ideas.

Can't say specifically for LA but I've always used webhostingtalk to search for service providers. – Marcin Gil Nov 18 '09 at 7:11

Equinix is where it's at. But you'll be renting cages from them, not individual racks or rack units. A small cage (I think the smallest they can give you is enough for 5 racks) should set you back anywhere between $10k to $20k per month, depending on your negotiating position. You arrange your own bandwidth on top of that from one of the zillion NSPs they have inhouse.

do you have any experience with these companies? they look rather small or unfocused on colocation. – storm Nov 18 '09 at 8:00
