How much would additional power cost on a 10U Colocation?

If you have bought or are about to buy a 10U colocation plan, it is important to calculate the average power consumption of all servers. All depends of the number of machines you are about to deploy and of their power supply units (PSU). The COLO 10U plan features 4 Amps of power.

260W Chassis

If any of the servers has a 260W (Watts) PSU then the average power usage per server should be 1 Amp. In this scenario it will be very easy to calculate the additional power you need to reserve. Just add 1 Amp for each machine.

300W - 330W Server Chassis

If one or any of your servers have chassis with 300W PSU: a) You have to purchase 1 Amp of power per server: b) You should expect an overage power bill between €0.00 and €7.50 per server, at the end of the month (depending on your power consumption).

500W Server Chassis
 
If your servers have a PSU of 500W you have to purchase (reserve) 2 Amp additional power per server. It will cost you €40/month. Please note that it might or might not be sufficient. If it is sufficient you should not expect any additional charges. Depending on the power consumption however, you might need to pay up to €20 per server at the end of the month.
 
800W - 920W Server Chassis
 
If you servers have 800W - 920W PSU you must purchase 4 Amps of additional power per server at €80/month. They should be enough and you'd not expect any bills over electricity consumption. Please note that a server with 920W PSU needs 4 Amps of reserved power. You would expect a bill for overage power for up to €11.50 at the end of the service cycle for a machine with 920W PSU.
 
1200W - 1280W Chassis
 
For any server that has a PSU between 1200W and 1280W, you have to purchase/reserve 6 Amps of additional power. They cost €120/month.
 
Having reserved 6 Amps (1 Amp + 4 Ams add-on), you should be OK and would not have any additional costs for electricity. If your power usages is less than 6 Amps, we will add credit for unused power to your account. You can use the credit to reduce any of your next bills.
 
1400W Chassis
 
For server that has 1400W a PSU, you have to purchase/reserve 6 Amps of additional power. They cost €120/month.
 
Having reserved 6 Amps per server, you should be OK and would not have any additional costs for electricity. If your power usages is less than 6 Amps, we will add credit for unused power to your account. You can use the credit to reduce any of your next bills.
