MSPmentor hears a lot about free e-mail or free anti-virus -- but how about free colocation services? That’s what Illinois-based CoreLink Data Centers is offering, with three months of free colocation with new contracts. Here’s the skinny.

Cabinets, cages and personal suites are covered under the terms of the deal. It’s a limited time offer, according to CoreLink’s press release, and it’s aimed at helping businesses willing to sign a one-year contract migrate from their old colocation facility to a new one.

To wit, here’s CoreLink Data Centers President Michael Duckett in a prepared statement:
“Our Fall Special Event allows customers to transition from their old deployment to a new one at Corelink without having to pay for two locations at the same time. For customers with new deployments, this program allows them to enjoy a customized colocation solution, relentless service and 100% uptime at a great value at no cost for up to three months.”


CoreLink has data centers in Chicago, Seattle, Phoenix, and Las Vegas, and (naturally) touts their 100% uptime SLA and state-of-the art infrastructure. This offer doesn’t quite qualify as freemium since you only get it with a paid commitment, but free is free.
