CommunityRack.org

Contents

CommunityRack.org is a Swiss based “Verein” in Zurich. We run a co-location rack in a professional datacenter colozueri.ch in the city of Zurich. The idea is to provide space for our members to put their server in a datacenter with good connectivity to the world, sharing the costs and effort to run it. We are RIPE member and run our own LIR. Have a look at our website to get more information:

The idea - Or how everything began

I own an Internet-connected server since many years (see also tobrunet), as the network growed over time I thought about sharing it with others. Talking to many friends about this idea of sharing rack space lead to the conclusion that we should found a “Verein”. Soon CommunityRack.org was born.
