COLOCATION

Obelisk represents a unique opportunity for those interested in the benefits that come from securing the Sia and Decred networks through the power of ASICs. We realize though, that not everyone has a suitable space that can handle the electrical and cooling requirements of mining hardware, especially when operating more than one or two units.

DATA CENTERS / COLOCATION

The main alternative to home operation is to find a data center (also sometimes called a colocation facility or "colo ") where your Obelisks can operate. It can be quite time consuming to find a good facility that understands the needs of miners, provides "remote hands " services if your Obelisks need attention, and offers the service at a good price.

OBELISK RECOMMENDED COLOCATION

We want owning and operating your Obelisks to be an easy, fun and rewarding experience, so we've done the work for you! Below you will find a list of recommended colocation packages at companies with facilities across North America and Europe.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

After placing your order, you can login to the Obelisk Customer Portal, go to the details of your order and select a colocation facility from the Ship To Colo section. In the near future, you will be able to select the colocation facility when placing your order.

About every 2 weeks, we will send updates to each colocation provider with the list of customers who have chosen their facility. We will provide them with your contact info and the number of units in your order(s). The provider will then contact you to setup an account. If you wish to expedite the account setup process, you may contact the company directly and let them know you have selected them as your colocation provider.

When your Obelisks are ready, we'll ship them directly to your chosen provider. They will receive your Obelisks, unpack them, connect them to power & internet, then send you an email with information on how to login remotely so you can configure your mining pool and other settings and start mining.

BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP

It is important to note that, although we have negotiated colocation packages with the listed providers and we believe each facility that we have listed is legitimate, the actual colocation agreement will be between you and the provider directly, not through Obelisk. Obelisk accepts no responsibility or liability for your use of these colocation services or for the actions of the colocation facilities. Our role is simply to facilitate the connection between you and them.

The specifics of the services provided and prices listed here are subject to change without notice.

AVAILABLE PACKAGES

The following colocation options have been negotiated for you by Obelisk. You can login to the Obelisk Customer Portal and choose a provider from a dropdown list on the order details page of each of your orders.

We're always interested in adding more options to this list from locations around the world. If you know of a good facility to add, please email us at ken@obelisk.tech.

Unless otherwise stated, the monthly fee for each colocation package should include the following:

  • All charges for space, power and network connection
  • Basic "remote hands" service for reboots/resets
  • Receiving, unpacking and connecting your Obelisk to power and internet
  • For facilities with backup power, that is also included in the price
  • SC1 and DCR1 units are accepted under the same terms
