The membership fee consists of three components: a yearly contribution, that makes you a member of the association, a monthly, per server contribution, that covers our fixed costs and finally the cost of the power used per month (measured in kWh). Having a power efficient server saves you money at ColoClue!
(The amounts listed below include VAT)
|Yearly association fee (independent of number of servers)||EUR 60,00|
Because the number of powerbar ports is the limiting factor in how much servers can be placed in a rack, we made this the basis for the calculation of the per server contribution per month. This results in the following:
|Power ports||Rack space||Base contribution (monthly)||Power cost (monthly)|
|1||1 or 2 U||EUR 25,00||EUR 0,63 per kWh|
|Extra component (1 U rack space, extra network port, extra OOB port)|
|EUR 5,00 per month|
This includes data traffic, 1 remotely manageable power plug and Out-of-Band management interface (serial, extra network port or extra vlan).
