JeffColo is in the process of building a 3 MW modular data center park

Big or small, everyone pays the same low rate of $65/kW-month month-to-month

No setup fee's and no pre-payment required to get a discounted hosting rate

The first modules should be available in the first week or two of September 2017. The plan is to have all 12 modules online by the end of the year.

Each Module Features

- 250 kW (800A 3P 208V DELTA) (4 x 200A Meters)
- 16 x 60A 3P 208V PDU's
- Low Latency Symmetrical Gigabit Fiber (<1ms)
- Hot Aisle / Cold Aisle Containment
- Incoming Air Filtration
- Air Side Economizer ( 62F - 82F Avg, 87F Max )
- Evaporative Cooling (Optional)

About Our Power

Our power comes from the Bonneville Power Administration, here is their resource mix;

https://www.bpa.gov/p/Generation/Fuel-Mix/FuelMix/BPA-Official-Fuel-Mix-2016.pdf

Hosting Plans

In addition to traditional hosting of individual miners we want to start offering hosting packages where you become a direct customer of our local utility. You would receive a dedicated power delivery service and utility meter. You pay the utility directly and merely rent the space and infrastructure from us on a month-to-month basis.

Paying the utility directly makes sure you are only paying for the power you use and never paying for power during unexpected downtime, software crashes, planned maintenance, RMA's, etc. People have asked if we could bill by the kWh, unfortunately the current regulations seem to indicate that if we install sub-metering on a customer by customer basis it would define our business as a federally regulated utility. We want to avoid that.

This is the best way to meet our customers needs and also offers a level of utility rate transparency currently not available from any of our competitors. Plus, there are some additional perks; The local utility currently accepts most major credit cards. This is excellent if your trying to get a little kick back in regards to cash back, miles, etc. Paying the utility directly also assures that you are paying the lowest possible price if rates change in your advantage. Additionally, our state is one of the few states without a sales tax. So there will be no local taxes added to your hosting or utility bill.

Hosting Rates

- Shared Module -> $65/kW-month [ < 60 kW ]
- Dedicated Rack -> $2000/month + Direct Utility Payment [ ~ 60 kW ]
- Private Module -> $7500/month + Direct Utility Payment [ 250 kW ]

Hosting Fee's

- No setup costs of any kind
- No cost for reboots during business hours (unless abused, >1 reboot per day is abuse of the policy)
- Pack it up and ship it out fee of $20/miner for re-packaging and drop off with shipping carrier (customer provides shipping labels)

Additional services available

- Full suite of VPS solutions
- Dedicated customer VLAN's
- Cost effective geo-diverse redundant data storage
- Colocation of traditional rack mount servers

Payments

- PayPal (3% Added Fee)
- Bitcoin (No Fee, Coinbase Exchange Rates)

You can ship directly to us from the manufacturer, we'll pick it up at FedEx (preferred) and have it up and running as quickly as possible.

I've had 31 SP20s hosted with JeffColo for more than a year (just sold them all) and his service has been top notch the whole time.

I will surely host with him again in the future if S9's price comes down and/or some new miner gets sold to the public at large.

Been a while w/o discussion.  I am looking for a place to host additional miners. 

I looked at the website and it discusses only hosting your own server.  I'm not sure if anybody has had recent experience and would appreciate any feedback/help in finding someone to host ...

Our website is targeted at our traditional cloud/vps/colocation business. Hosting mining equipment is very different from hosting conventional servers in terms of power density, air flow and cooling requirements.

For the last several years we have operated at maximum capacity with a waiting list of eager people ready to fill any openings. So there hasn't really been much reason to setup a web site and advertise miner targeted hosting services when there is no room.

With our current build out, the project is large enough that we should have vacancies for a while. I'm tempted to advertise, but I've already received a ton of interest from people with rather large ambitions (>500 machines). So once again, probably not worth it.

I received an email asking me what the advantages to dedicated service are. I figured I would detail them here;

We charge $65/kW-month but that assumes that your machine has 100% uptime. If any of your machines have anything less than 100% uptime then you will come out ahead if you are fully utilizing the power delivery. There are all sorts of reasons you wouldn't achieve 100% uptime including crashed miners, faulty mining equipment out for repair, power outages, internet outages, regional internet congestion, pool server outages, etc.

If you are getting charged for power when a machine isn't mining that is equivalent to actually watching your mining revenues go in reverse. If you aren't getting charged for the power when your machine is off at least you aren't losing money you already earned.

In addition you can save 1-2% on energy costs by paying the utility with a credit card with a rewards program. We certainly do this, so this is a way to pass that benefit on to the customer.

Customers with large numbers of machines stand to benefit the most from dedicated services. The overall savings are small, but being able to optimize your operation with these additional features could potentially save a miner up to 10% over normal costs.

JeffColo has been my colocation hosting provider since about the beginning of this June (2017). Everything is going great so far. I have about a half dozen miners there.

Highly recommended+++

Do you offer GPU hosting?  Would you also offer complete build and setup of GPU miners, meaning you procure the various equipment needed and get it up and running?

Yes, but only if your GPU rigs are in 19" server enclosures.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1731197.0

That forum talks about using the very economical Rosewill RSV-L4500 server case. You can get them at NewEgg.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16811147164

There are also Grey Matter GPU cases that are very nice, but much more expensive.

https://www.miningrigs.net/

Typically we don't do complete builds of GPU equipment, although it is possible. It would have to be negotiated on a case by case basis depending on the complexity.

Thank you for the information, personally I think it would be easier if you guys sourced the build for me as it would create less confusion in my mind.  If this is something you would be interested in, please let me know, I understand if it is not.  To start, I would probably only want 1 or 2 rigs, but would scale up as we developed a relationship.

The next 30-40 days is crunch time and we will be extra busy receiving the last of the equipment and setting up the new datacenter space. Due to this we have started to fall behind in responding to hosting requests.

We understand it is critical to avoid delays in getting your equipment up and running as soon as it ships. Many of the customer requests we receive want absolute dates on power and space availability. If you are uncomfortable sending equipment to us for fear of delay, please host it yourself until the space is move in ready. Then ship it to us at that time to avoid any possible delays.

Prospective customers who have corresponded with us know that there is a capacity reservation waiting list for the various stages of our expansion. In an effort to stream line our hosting request process we decided to post our waiting list on the top of this service announcement page.

The reservations on the waiting list will be be fulfilled in first in first out order. User identities in the list will be replaced with random values known only by us and by the requester. Until the list is full you are assured that you have the option to host with us when it becomes available. If you request capacity after the list is full then you would only get an opportunity to host your equipment with us if someone else decides to refuse the offer.

Send us requests for hosting at hosting@jeffcolo.net with the quantity, brand and model of the machines along with the total power consumption you expect to use. The list will be updated with your request in chronological order. If for some reason we are taking awhile to reply, rest assured that as long as you sent us a request the timestamp on the email will ensure your position.

When power and space become available we will go through the waiting list, when your name comes up you will be given the opportunity to commit to the agreement or refuse it at that time. If you refuse, the power allocation you had requested will passed forward to the next person on the list.

We have a master service agreement that we can provide for your review. Due to the waiting list there is no reason to sign the agreement immediately. We can go through that when the power actually becomes available and the space is move in ready.

Others have stated they are willing to accept the risk of delays and would like to send us their equipment directly from the manufacturer in order to save shipping expenses and take advantage of Oregon's lack of sales tax. Just realize that as hard as we may try, delays are possible and often outside our control. We will do our best to minimize delays as much as possible.

Thanks

E-mail sent last week. No respond yet. Still waiting.

As stated above, we are busy building out at this time. We will not be responding to hosting requests quickly.

With the current state of the waiting list we have no available capacity opening up until late December 2017 to early January 2018.

If you sent us an email asking for a capacity reservation then you will be added to the list in the chronological order we receive the emails. We do not update the list on this announcement page everyday, we will attempt to update it every couple of weeks.

Obviously customer equipment that is showing up now needs to be setup and running as quickly as possible so our buildout is of the most importance in priorities.

Hosting requests for capacity that isn't built out yet must take a lower priority. I know this might seem hard to understand, but if you are a customer who has had equipment showing up in the last two weeks then you probably value this order of priorities quite a bit.

Terrible service


I would advise anyone looking for a hosting facility to keep away from jeffcolo

Have you ever been a customer? Do you have some experience you would like to share? If you are referring to the delay on email response or pm's? You might have missed the notices I posted about what to expect here;

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1467198.msg22218765#msg22218765

and here;

I wanted to update everyone following this announcement on the state of things at the moment.

First and foremost, we did take possession of our new datacenter space on 09/11/2017. We were able to quickly get the first 500 kW service up and running that first week and were busy moving customer gear into it. Starting in October we were able to add an additional service for the second 500 kW service. This was supposed to be the cadence we would continue following until the new year when we planned to have our entire 3 MW available for colocation customers.

Unfortunately there have been delays thrown into the plan by both the local utility and also with our electrical equipment suppliers. The problem with the utility stemmed around our stated load calculations and the utilities lack of belief in them. The utility here has never had to size equipment for a datacenter before and they undersized our service delivery transformers despite our indicated load figures. We were unaware of the sizing problem since the transformers have no significant information located on the exterior.

The first 500 kW service turned out to be running on a 300 kVA transformer which is being upgraded this Friday to a more suitable 500 kVA unit since it was determined that we are severely overloading it to the point of leaking oil.

The second 500 kW service in turn was also on a similar undersized transformer that doesn't seem to match their records. At this point we are unsure what size it actually is and have been instructed to halt adding any additional load until the size can be validated. We have been monitoring the temperature rise of that transformer and found it to be operating well within tolerances. Unfortunately the utility did not agree with our assessment and we will need to wait until Friday to find out what the situation is.

At this point the utility determined the existing plan for power distribution was no longer going to work as our "constant" load was not within their expectations. They wanted to revisit the plan to oversize our transformers and also potentially shorten our timeline to getting a significant amount of capacity online. They proposed that instead of using 6 x 500 kVA transformers as originally planned that instead they would site 3 x 1500 kVA transformers over the next 3 months and limit our usage to no more than 3.5 MW ensuring that we are only ever running the transformers at a maximum of 73% utilization.

That means that as soon as that first 1500 kVA transformer is placed, we would be bringing on an additional 1.15 MW immediately. That could certainly accelerate customer placement. Unfortunately this also means it all has to go back to the electrical and civil engineers to update the design, back to the county for a plan review of the changes and then finally onto the build out schedule at the utility. I have no idea how long this will take, we are trying to expedite it as much as possible.

Unfortunately shifting from 500 kVA to 1500 kVA transformers significantly increases the fault current requirements of down stream equipment. This resulted in some design changes to the type of disconnects and respective fuses. Fortunately it didn't change any of the customer facing switch gear (meters).

The unfortunate part is the update from our electrical supplier on the state of our order for that customer facing switchgear. Apparently due to the events in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, electrical equipment has become very high demand and disaster relief areas get first priority. We were given an estimate of approximately 6-8 weeks before we see any of that gear. I really hope it ends up being sooner, but I wouldn't bet on it.

I suspect that the utility changes and respective local government involvement will likely cause a similar delay. We're going to try to make enough progress with the utility so that by the time work begins it will be coordinated fairly closely with the arrival of our long awaited switchgear.

All this means that if you were given an availability date of late October to early November you can expect it now to be closer to late December to early January.

sunbreak, are you still on track for late December to early January on your buildout? I held off on this last batch of S9s and only bought 1 because I didn't have any place to put them. Do you think you will have any hosting space available early next year?  Thanks!

I know people have been patiently waiting for an update and I haven't given one in awhile. We have been expediting all of our engineering and plan reviews with a feverish pace. Unfortunately at the same time we also got an early present as Bitmain shipped a significant quantity of miners almost a month earlier than expected. Combined with the holiday season, the last 40 days have been a whirlwind.

Here is the update for everyone following this announcement.

We have 1 MW online at the moment that has validated our adapted modular design for indoor operation. Our electrical engineer has reworked the power distribution design in order to distribute the (48) 200 amp services throughout the building. Additionally we had to hire a civil engineer to work out all the new vault requirements for these new larger than life 1500 kVA transformers. All of this got submitted to local code enforcement for plan review, it passed and we received our permit to start work. Getting this all pulled together going into the holidays was no small feat. All of this information was submitted to the local utility and we are waiting for them to come back with a cost and scheduled installation date for the first transformer.

These modifications shouldn't have been that big of a deal. However we had a benefit with the outdoor version of our module. When considering code enforcement, the outdoor module was considered its own independent structure. Unfortunately when you bring all that power in under one roof there are huge changes that have to be made. I could get started on all the nuances, but it probably deserves it's own book.

Meanwhile we have contracted with a local excavation company that should be starting on the groundwork for the transformer pads and underground conduit maze. All that conduit is going to be quite the spectacle when it's all done and ready to back fill. The excavation company will have the horizontal boring work done to bring the 12 kV primary power to our new vaults.

At the same time we are having our boring work done for the electrical, we will also have boring done for our dark fiber feed into the regional internet exchange. Currently we are using symmetrical gigabit fiber from a local provider as our primary means of connectivity.

Our electrical supplier let us know that the switchgear should be delivered soon and our electrician is ready to go. We found a supplier who indicated they could have the 15,000ft of 300 MCM wire to us within 2 weeks.

While the electrical work is being done we will be having the building exterior modified to accommodate the air flow requirements for both incoming and outgoing air. A dedicated firewalled mechanical room will need to be built for power ingress.

tldr;

The good news is that things are progressing, the bad news is that we were way to optimistic about getting things done over the holidays. We are still at the mercy of the power utilities schedule, so at this time it's impossible to know precisely when things will actually be ready. However I believe all the things I described above should be done in 4-6 weeks from now and hopefully the utility will have us on their schedule for our first transformer install shortly after.

Also, we recently hired help for coordinating with customers. More importantly now than ever please use the 'hosting@jeffcolo.net' email address and you should get a far faster reply than you would from me.

As you can imagine, we are working hard every day to make this thing a reality.

Thanks for the update Jeff! Hadn't heard from you in awhile through email so I had been assuming you were super busy and had greater priorities. Good luck with everything going on!

Hi guys,

Did anyone get hosted during the last three month? I just got my A3 miners. Mining in California sucks. I reached out to other data centers. Most of them are in Washington obviously. However, they’re super expensive and even that there’s no space available. Any help?

Best,
CryptoDance
