From my knowledge hetzner is offering robot for dedicated servers. (not sure for colocation)
So your options while colocating your servers in a data center:
1. This days most servers come with IPMI, you can manually install the server.
2. If you prefer automatic installation go with a solution like Cobbler, FAI or custom kickstart/preseed.
