Good ColoCrossing Experience
I've work for a company in the health care field that uses ColoCrossing for dedicated servers and managed firewall services. We have equipment in two of their datacenters, both Chicago and Dallas. Our experience has been excellent over the years (we've been with them since 2007). Highly recommended. A+

Overview

About Colo Crossing

ColoCrossing is a leading part of the Velocity Servers Network Exchange (VSNX) family of companies. Founded in 2003 and proudly headquartered in Buffalo, New York, VSNX provides a wide variety of internet based services and products. Our footprint spans many diverse market verticals, including dedicated servers, colocation, disaster recovery, application hosting and Voice over IP software.

Focused on managing hosting infrastructure for organizations that require premium internet services, ColoCrossing has become known for performance and reliability. While the hosting industry continues to be overshadowed by providers who are captive to cost cutting and offer a fly by night mentality, ColoCrossing takes the opposite approach. Managed by a group of uniquely driven individuals, we appreciate the demands of even the most discerning customers. We are firm believers that the art of customer service isn't dead.

ColoCrossing understands that many things in life are interconnected - especially the function between customer and provider success. When our clients do well, so do we. Given this simple, yet proven thinking, it would only make sense that we consistently deliver a very high level of service. Our corporate culture is that of quality over quantity, solutions over excuses, and customers first. You and your business are unique, and we make it our priority to treat you that way.

At a Glance
1. In Business Since 2003
2. Quality Over Quantity
3. Knowledgable and Experienced

Solid foundation, proven results.
Our highly skilled group of network engineers have made strict provisions to ensure 100% network availability. Company-wide, diverse network routes and redundantly scalable architectures are deployed to consistently deliver headache-free hosting for our clients.

What does it mean to be 100% Cisco powered? It means that ColoCrossing has made the investments necessary to utilize quality, proven hardware. By using only the market leader for enterprise networking devices, Cisco Systems, we've put our customers first. Some hosts cut corners when it comes to the network, we know better.

In the rare event of network related issues, our engineers are trained to deal with all situations and are versed in dynamic mitigation strategies. Our network is monitored from multiple, independent sources inside and outside of our internal operations, to ensure the availability and performance that our clients demand.

As the saying goes, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Keeping this adage in mind, ColoCrossing makes use of the proven and rock solid Cisco Catalyst 3000, 4000 and 6000 series platforms. Thanks to our commitment to true enterprise grade, we've been able to achieve multi-year uptimes regularly, only resetting for planned software updates.

COLOCATION
Your equipment; Our expertise.

Large enterprises and individuals who are in charge of hosting deployments must select their colocation partner carefully. After all, you are sending valuable equipment to a datacenter which often times you'll never see for yourself. ColoCrossing recognizes that this can present a level of uncertainty. For that reason we've worked tirelessly to simplify the colocation process, making it transparent and painless. In case you prefer seeing things in person, all cabinet-level customers are welcome to visit any of our facilities at your convenience given 24 hours notice (hey, we need time to let security know your friendly). Tours for interested parties are available on request, contact our sales team for more information.

You can trust ColoCrossing to take the utmost care of your technology assets. We have extensive experience providing network management consulting and hardware troubleshooting. We will ensure that your equipment is handled in a manner that you expect, as if it were our own.

ColoCrossing prides itself on offering best of breed colocation solutions. Here are the top reasons why you should have full confidence in deploying equipment with us:

World Class Networks
100% Uptime Service Level Agreement
Skilled Remote Hands
24/7/365 Operations Center
Extensive Spare Parts Onsite

MANAGED HOSTING - Put the work on our shoulders
Each and every management package includes 24/7 priority support, available by phone and support ticket. Our team of expert technicians will be a part of your initial deployment, ensuring our familiarity with your environment; so when time is of the essence, none is wasted figuring out how your setup works. So what do we bring to the table? Quite a bit, but most commonly:

Dedicated Firewalls: Using top of the line Cisco ASA (Adaptive Security Appliance) devices, each system behind this firewall will be protected by the rules you work with our team to configure. Want to restrict traffic to one IP? Looking to filter all traffic incoming to a single port? How about ensuring your gear can't get infected by the latest worm? Consider it done.

Data Backup: Our data backup hardware is built in-house and from the ground up using the highest quality components. We utilize industry standard best practices, including RAID 10 for the most secure data protection and read / write performance.

Pro-active Uptime Monitoring: We'll monitor your devices from multiple locations and ensure they're online. We can monitor servers, switches, and even firewalls. If it's on the network, we can make sure it stays that way. We also offer Pro-active Service Monitoring, which is even more specific than simple uptime monitoring. If you've got a critical network service we can make sure it stays online. Should an application fail, one of our certified technicians will be quick to act, following a pre-determined mitigation strategy to restore normal operations.

Initial Configuration Setup: Deployment/migrations can be a long, stressful and complicated process. With ColoCrossing, we take the pressure off your shoulders. After you discuss your needs with our sales and deployment team, our engineers will get to work configuring your environment how you need it. Whether it be Microsoft, Linux or BSD based, we've got the people to get the job done effectively.

Management can be added to any device. Speak with a sales representative about adding management to your account.

DISASTER RECOVERY - Failure is not an option
It happens to the unprepared every single day; another hard-drive fails and is rendered a paperweight, leaving the business that depended on it scrambling for a replacement. In the meantime, IT personnel are searching for the latest snapshot of the critical data from the system. Are the backups up to date? Do any backups exist at all? Don't be another statistic, have a disaster recovery plan in place before the unthinkable happens. ColoCrossing's team is happy to create and then implement a customized solution that matches your needs.

High availability services are crucial in today's business environment. To maintain the operation of mission-critical services, many customers choose to utilize mirrored configurations in multiple, independent, geographically diverse locations. ColoCrossing allows you to do this with a single point of contact, a single support team, and a single guarantee.

By taking advantage of ColoCrossing's nation-wide datacenter facilities, you can ensure high availability services stay running in the rare event of natural disasters, fiber cuts, failed hardware and other forms of human error. Don't risk your critical data, back it up to a remote site for instant restoration in the event of failure. Sleep soundly at night knowing that no single problem in one city will put your business in jeopardy. You've worked hard to get where you are, protect it.


Reselling - Profit From Day One
By leveraging ColoCrossing's diverse product catalog, our resellers are reaching new markets and catering to a large variety of consumers, small businesses and large enterprises. Established providers that focus on a specific market, such as hosting in one particular city, can benefit from ColoCrossing's broad nation-wide presence. By offering more options to your loyal customers, not only will you build operational diversity, you'll earn new clients in the process. At the same time, we welcome new startups who are looking to partner with a solid, dependable hosting organization. Businesses of all sizes can enjoy the benefits of our reseller program, taking advantage of our super-quick order provisioning (typically 2-6 hours), true 24/7 support services and leading nation-wide premium networks.

Many companies take a ''learn as you go'' approach that can invariably lead to failure. IT infrastructure is one particular area of internet hosting which should be left to the experts. Your business should be focused on making sales, and not on the intricacies of network switching, hardware procurement, IP subnetting, network design, power controls, or any of the other aspects which don't directly make you money.

We have something for everyone. Please contact a sales representative to learn more about our reseller program, including special volume discounts, available configurations and other exciting opportunities. Profiting from sales on day one is difficult -- start out with ColoCrossing and ensure you're in the black on your first sale, and ready to make the second.

I've been a customer of ColoCrossing for a little over a year now. I rent two dedicated servers, one for my personal web sites and backups and a second for my company's database server. The service and network has been excellent (I'm hosted at their Chicago datacenter). To keep it short I would recommend them to anyone, without hesitation.
