There is a smaller colocation facility in Oakland called InReach, and
they're about the best deal I've found anywhere.

Last I checked you could get a quarter rack with a 10 megabit switched
uplink for under $300/month.

If you want any management (a firewall in front of your box, someone to
go in and cycle the box, admin services, whatever) or a smaller amount
of space than a quarter rack you'll need to go with a reseller there
like www.megahosted.com.

Disclaimer: I get space for my own linux server in there from
megahosted, but I wouldn't recommend it unless I thought it was a good
fit for you and I was happy with the facility.
