Rackspace Colocation uses an allocated billing model, which charges by the kilowatt (kW), for the right to use a defined amount of reserved redundant critical power. There is no additional charge for space or cooling. A customer may request an additional standard rack-sized equivalent space for every 4kW reserved. Customers also pay monthly recurring fees for cross-connects and blended bandwidth if purchased.
Rackspace bills customers for one-time installation fees, power circuits, private cages, in rack-PDUs, and cross-connects.
