Anyone know about colo?

We’re considering colocation instead of leased dedicated servers.

I’ve never run colo servers before.

  1. Can anyone recommend a good colo provider near NYC, or recommend a different one and convince me that I don’t need to be physically near the provider?
  2. Is colo likely to be a good idea for us?
  3. Do colo facilities offering remote KVM/management require special hardware, like a management card, in each server?
  4. Any reason not to go with Dell servers with on-site quick-turnaround warranties?
  5. What should I be asking here that I’m not considering?
