What is Managed Hosting?
Managed dedicated hosting is an IT service model where a customer leases dedicated hardware from a managed hosting services provider like Rackspace. This solution includes servers, storage and networking hardware. Because you aren’t sharing these resources with anyone else, it’s referred to as a single-tenant solution.
When you choose managed dedicated hosting, you get to choose your operating system while your service provider handles the administration, management and support of your solution. And because you’re not sharing any of these resources with another tenant, you have access to the full performance capabilities of the hardware you’re leasing.
