Colocation VS Dedicated Servers for Gameservers.

In this video I talk a little about some of the benefits of colocation your own hardware. I also show you a server that would typically meet the needs and them some to host game servers.

Hi Ed, What did you typically pay on this setup and where do you colocate at? I’ve done some numbers are it’s roughly about 900.. What type of power does this server pull?

Laurens D says:

worst thing you can do, green drives tend to break a lot in raid. Because of tler and maximum parks.

I used to have a colocated server about 4 years ago it was 4u rackmount using amd x6, had 24TB of sata 3 drives. Had some hard drive failures and cost $75hr to replace them. I learned to use a dedicated servers with the use of a good CDN company to host the files. jmo
