At Rackspace, we garner a lot of interest in our managed hosting solutions, as well as our managed colocation options that are a popular alternative. We field many questions from interested clients regarding the differences between managed hosting and managed colocation, and which might be preferable for an individual business. Both services provide advantages and our fanatical support, but the size and type of your business may also inform your choice.
Our managed hosting services offer clients a diversity of service and range of coverage enviable in the market place, as well as hosting flexibility that keeps our customers happy. Placing your managed hosting services with Rackspace, you can be assured that your site and server will have the punch you need for high-traffic operations.
With our managed hosting services, you'll also receive the best of Rackspace's fanatical support. This means Rackers will assume responsibility for the administration and maintenance of your server, as well as back-up and storage of your data. This eliminates the need for a highly skilled IT staff being deployed for mundane infrastructure-related tasks. Rackspace's managed hosting services also free up your capital by ensuring you won't have to splash out on hardware for your hosting needs.
Managed colocation at Rackspace can help businesses design their ideal data server unit, as we work directly with your IT staff to address your managed colocation needs. Rackspace then builds your centre to your specs, and continue to work with your managed colocation needs as your business grows. We deal with hardware purchasing and vendors for your managed colocation, while you retain control of operating systems, monitoring, storage and back-up.
