I'm going to get p4 processor from rackmountsetc. What should be the recommended spec for a colo hosting?
Also I would like to colo at jltnet in ohio what do you guys think?
I really don't have any knowledge in this field and would like to learn more
What should i do after that? what software should be installed? how can I install those softwares? remotely?
what about remote reboot.. what does it do? Is it really necessary to have that? where it is gonna be placed? since I want to lease only 1u, is it gonna be enough space for reboot hardware? what else hardware should I have?
We offer APC Masterswitch ports for a little extra. We recommend it to Windows clients. What are your reasons for using JLTNet in Ohio? If you running windows it has a remote desktop, if your running Linux you can probably just SSH into the box. If your not tech savvy you can use a webpanel for a little extra cash. Most the time if you have a co-located windows box you'll need to upload the installation program and run it. 99% of the time you already have your software installed before shipping your server to the datacenter.

For Windows use either PC Anywhere or Terminal Services; for UNIX SSH is the way to go for remote capabilites.
Regarding reboots, APC is a good and convenint solution. Never had any problems with it. However some companies do offer unlimited reeboots as part of thier deals. Just make sure that support is available when the time comes for the reeboot request.
