Managed Colocation Versus Traditional Colocation

There is no colo offering that promises and delivers what Managed Colocation does. Sure, a few top tier colo providers offer some of the services for an additional fee but they cannot match the expertise, around-the-clock support and industry-leading SLAs that come standard with Rackspace Managed Colocation.

The fact that Managed Colocation doesn't require the massive upfront capital outlay for hardware makes it all the more appealing.
