I'm looking for this same thing, but with someone that will manage a server with NO control panel. No offense to any of the 'fully managed' solutions out there, but 90% of them require you to have a CP.
Off the top of my head, I know Hostworkz (resellerworkz) and Liquidweb require a CP, and the jury is still out on allmanaged (they seem to offer this, but now they seem to be having some issues with it).

Hmmm, where did you get the 90% fact from? Anyway, allmanaged.com liquidweb.com dedicatedplace.com all provide managed server solutions.

Allmanaged is going to do this no problem. It seems there was a misunderstanding about them installing the correct OS on my system ( I asked for one they don't normally offer...CentOS 4 instead of 3.3), but it has all been straightened out.
My Sales Guy in an E-Mail to me:
It is going to happen. Sorry for the delay. I needed to remind my boss of our presales call.
Originally posted by aaroncampbell You're right, the 90% figure was an 'off the top of my head' sort of figure, and should have been noted as such.
Dedicated place, and liquidweb both offer managed solutions, but NOT without a control panel. I have personally asked both. Same with resellerworkz.
Like I said, still waiting on allmanaged. They said they could, but there are some issues with getting php5 & MySQL 4.1. I'll report back when they get it straightened out.
We Managed even without Control Panels. We already have several clients who are not using any control panel at all. Most of these clients have only one or few websites of their own and not for hosting and of couse with this setup you don't need a control panel. But if you are planning to host, we of course recommend a control panel and if you can't afford one, there are free good ones out there.
I don't know who you talked with, or maybe a misunderstanding, but we managed servers without control panel.
I should have provide more details of what I am looking for,
I was rely on viewer to visit servercrossing.com/managed to find out the details, my fault.
Thankyou all the replies.
Anyway what I am looking for is "Fully Managed Server Solutions" contains one Linux/Unix and one Windows server with H-Sphere control panel, so that I can have reseller and end-user signup.
The details on servercrossing.com/managed are:
A lot of hosts offer 'Fully Managed' Dedicated Server Solutions, but fail to provide what the client views as 'Fully Managed'. Our FM Server Solution is quite different. Let me explain:
When you sign up for our FM Server Solution, you will have all the resources of the Dedicated Server, without the hassle of administrating it. We add the server to our existing H-Sphere cluster, and give you, and only you access to it. You can have a reseller account and host your own clients on your dedicated server if you desire. We treat the server as one of our own, and add it to our daily maintenance schedule to keep it updated and secure, just like we do with all of our shared hosting servers. We will install custom software for you, as long as it is something that we feel will not risk the integrity of the server.
Common Questions about our FM Server Solutions:
Q. Will I have root access to my server?
A. No, we do not give customers Root access to our FM Servers, as we cannot properly manage a server if others have the potential to undo or break the work we are doing on the server.
Q. Will I have SSH Access to my server?
A. Yes, we do provide SSH access to your server so that you can easily administrate your own site(s).
Q. Why FreeBSD 4.8 and H-Sphere only for the FM Servers?
A. Since these are servers that we are responsible for managing, we need to be able to dictate at least what the base system will be running. We can not competently offer managed solutions for products/systems we do not know extremely well. We know H-Sphere and FreeBSD, and together they make a killer combination.
Q. What kind of services can I have running on my FM Server?
A. You can have any number of services running on your server. The common ones are Web, Mail, MySQL, but we also have customers who we manage that use Real's Helix Streaming Server, ColdFusion, and other software applications. If you have a custom service you would like us to run/manage on your server, please contact us.
