The Deciding Factor: Managed Hosting vs. Unmanaged Colocation Services

Managed vs Unmanaged

posted by Caronet

Given the ever-increasing ramped up demands of a 24/7 global economy, should you consider raising the bar on your corporate IT infrastructure to stay ahead of the curve with computing demands and online access?

Whether you hold the position of CIO, CTO or the key IT staff member in charge of vendor reviews and selection, there are numerous issues involved when making a choice between managed hosting vs. unmanaged colocation service.

An important consideration is to carefully evaluate the amount of responsibility your company management is prepared to comfortably outsource. The final decision will have a direct impact on the amount of maintenance that will need to be handled by your IT team vs. maintenance that’s handled by the facility you select.
