It is where Google and Yahoo have their American North East hub at. The New York branch of the FBI and NYPD Digital footprints are there (on a lower floor at 60 TelX).
And cheap! I'm paying for it
> Sure, the free site in West Virgina sounds cool but when you want and need 24/7 hour access to your server, air-conditioned server floor (not a server room or server closet), and dial-in tech service or do-it-yourself, nothing beats TelX. Being able to choose one's own connection can give you anything from a fractional T1 to a full blown OSD-128 and 265 lines at the lowest price available. I had a cabinet there with 15 Xserves and 2 solid state SAID/RAIDs with a OSD-23 line that was equivalent to 50 T3 lines -at- 20gb/sec access and 64 IP addresses (though I only used 15). Theoretically, I could upload 4GB movies in under a few seconds provided that the Torrents could match my speed. All this was $1200 a month, and that was cheap. Sharing a Rack with a Fractional T1 will be for under $200. You would need to call and ask.
> I'll give my set up this much - it survived a 30 day hack and flood attempt by 4Chan on one of the servers that I had a chat room in 2006. They tried, and failed. It was the combination of the line's speeds and the ssd-said/raid that I was using that saved it. I logged gigbit packets, megabyte pings, maximum chat room data input at a rate of 24gb a minute from 1200 4chan users. From the information the logs showed, I challenged tot he admins of 4Chan with it and swore if nothing was done I would shut them down. I did for a period of 30 days. They banned members and had the ones who started the attack arrested.
> NYCWebs - an ISP in Brooklyn near Eastern Parkway (Dont know if they are in business anymore) could not survive an attack from the "I Love You" Virus, while the server I had was running fine. In fact, since my server was the only one running, it held the ISP's DNS as it servers died. I was blamed for that one and proved that it was the stupid admin owner's fault and decided to take down my server from their site. I also took down a clone they tried to create from my system.
