Server Hosting options

Data centres.

Whilst trying to find externally hosted solutions for a new eportfolio project I'm scoping out, I've been given two "eudcational" options to invesitgate.  The first is from the ULCC whom provides a fully managed service @

And the second is "Eduserv's data centers, who  offer state-of-the-art facilities which are maintained round the clock by highly trained staff, with hosting services on offer ranging from fully managed application hosting through to co-location services.

Eduserv's data centers are designed and equipped to the highest industry standards - automatic fire extinguishing equipment, AC and DC power distribution, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), backup generators and multiple redundant fiber connections."

This has been going since the summer of 2009.

The 3rd party option is not as cheap as buying & managing your own server & data, but could provide medium/long term solutions to projects?
