Colocation is the cost-effective way to gain high-speed, reliable Internet connectivity for your business, hobby, or fulfillment of your disaster recovery plan. Biz Net provides colocation services at a fraction of the cost of maintaining your own web server in-house. Locate your server on our redundant network in our modern colocation facilities.
Biz Net operates two data centers located in the secured premises of the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center in Blacksburg Virginia. We have space available for towers and rackmount servers from 1U to partial and full racks. 10' x 10' secured cages are available in our Brush Mountain Data Center.
You can manage your server remotely or we can manage your servers under a maintenance and security monitoring retainer agreement. We have highly skilled system administrators available to for both Windows and UNIX system administration.
Our Blacksburg location is perfect for a data center. We are at just over 2,000 feet elevation, with low population density, in a low-crime area. Risk of damage to our corporate office buildings by natural or man-made disaster is very low.
Maybe it's time to get your servers out of the big city?
