Question

Managed Hosting @ RackShack ?


Would you guys/gals use Rackshack if they were to offer managed servers ? Why yes or why not ?

Anybody have an idea how much more RS would charge per server if it were managed ?

Just my opinion, but companies should stick to core business. If you're going to be the McDonalds of dedicated server's, don't try to sell Filet-Mignon (?Spelling?).

Just my 0.02

That's usually true. However, if the company is big enough it doesn't apply. Look at Microsoft. They're big enough to force their way into any market they want. It will be interesting to see how this works out for Rackshack.

RackShack will be providing Managed hosting near the end of this summer, that was a part of the big announcement earlier if I'm not mistaken.

The announcement was Ensim/CPanel related. The managed service they are still considering how to approach it.

Actually, he (headsurfer) also talked about offering managed servers. He said they would offer a product of comparable quality to rackspace, but at a much lower price.

Servers like Rackspace's with more affordable prices, that would be awsome.. they should really make an effort to do that, if they have so many clients already, I can't imagine how many more they can get by offering managed servers.......
And we need that kind of host..

with that many tech support they have, managed solution wouldn't be a problem. If they do offer managed solution and it turn out good, it will put great pressure on other provider such as nocster, DN etc..

I would think rack shack would need to hire more techs experienced customer support reps in order to offer true managed support on the level of rack space or a few other providers.

If Rackshack offered managed servers, I would use them. Simple as that.

I would buy a machine or there two if it had some decent 'semi-management' (port monitoring, kernel upgrades)

I've heard enough about their great network, and considering WHT is hosted there, I can say I never really see it (WHT) down. I have before, but not for more than a few seconds (excluding the lag/down from MS SQL worm..)

Honestly I don't even know what level of support they're offering now -- I've just heard horror stories of being told that reformatting is the only option. If I don't have physical access to a server, I'd at least like to have remote hands that can take a look at it and fix it up without huge hourly fees.

Yup, that's why I'd sign up for managed (or semi-managed) hosting with them in a heartbeat.

If rackshack offered managed servers, I'd definitely put them on the list of considerations... I'm already planning on getting a managed server in the fall for an ecommerce site that is currently on a rackshack server. I don't need lots of hand holding, but if something breaks and I can't fix it myself, I wouldn't want to hear a restore is the only option.
