We just have a plan use colo instead dedicated rent and i would like hear some story. Especially regarding remote colocation. We haven't USA office and we do not plan open it, so we will habe not physcial access to colo. But, in this case who and how and for which price will deal with hardware, software? I think about few way:
hire outsorce admins which leave near to DC
pay to DC techie for " hands work".
install some sort hardware/software for manage all servers by remote access
Can anyone who already have experience with remote colocation share his experience? Any story about time required for replacing failured hardware, install OS, and safe saving our spare part's for our server (i mean hdd, memory sttick, fans, cpu and etc.)?
Thanks to all to any information.

Check out colo4dallas.com, we currently have a few servers over there and we do not have direct access to them - they are great to work with, and get everything done promptly. They have good remote hands rates (billed in 15 minute increments). We have a KVMoIP there, and the helps a LOT. They do free reboots, so we don't really need remote reboot ports, although they are good, we find there is a high rate of hard drive corruption so we prefer as much as possible to do soft reboots.
