A Move from the Cloud to Colocation with Carrier-1 Saved Millions

Carrier-1 announces that new client, YellowFolder, moved from a virtual cloud-based storage solution to their colocation facility, saving nearly a million dollars in service costs per year. In addition to the cost savings, a colocation solution provides additional control on a private server architecture, adherence to compliance standards and hands-on access if needed. YellowFolder, a SaaS-based digital records storage provider for K-12 school districts, invested in hardware and software to deploy in the colocation facility. Carrier-1 owns and operates a 106,866-square-foot, fault-tolerant, wholesale colocation building in Dallas, Texas.

Ryan Bell, YellowFolder CTO explained, “We outgrew the cloud. In the beginning, it was a fast and cost-efficient way to get started. However, we grew quickly and with all of our data storage requirements, the cost became a burden. Our colocation solution with Carrier-1 saves us more than $80,000 per month. The colocation solution did require us to purchase our own hardware. We will quickly recoup this capital expense within the first year of our long-term colocation solution.”

Mr. Bell continued, “We knew we needed to invest in a storage solution in a secure colocation facility to provide the controls we wanted for proprietary student, employee and administration records. The ultimate costs matter, but more importantly, our clients trust us to make the best decisions for storing priceless data.”

YellowFolder is a software-as-a-service provider of digital file cabinets for school systems to safely store, retrieve and manage all student records. With online access to the YellowFolder digital file cabinet, schools maintain a cumulative folder for every student (active and archived) and store, retrieve and manage all of the documents in one place. YellowFolder automatically manages the student record from the day it is created until the day it is destroyed pursuant to state retention regulations. YellowFolder works with K-12 school districts who are online, using their services, even in the summer. They arranged with Carrier-1 for the space, power and network to be provisioned ahead of schedule. Carrier-1 prepped the racks before the scheduled migration and YellowFolder ordered all of their Dell and Cisco hardware to be shipped directly to Carrier-1 which was stored in a locked, secure location until they arrived to configure their systems.

“We help our clients achieve their goals, whether it is cost savings or a higher-level of control and security,” said Carrier-1’s CEO, Peter Pathos. “For YellowFolder, we know that our core environmental systems, network redundancies, operational efficiencies, local support and security protocols were important features to help them meet their goals—a more secure and reliable document storage solution for school districts.”
