They can't have anyone coming in and poking around other customers hardware without being watched.  We do the same thing but we allow 24x7 escorted access.  Half and full racks get 24x7 access also but that is because they are individually locked.

This is beginning to sound like the blind leading the blind & this 
commentary is too funny.

If you outsource your IT facilities to a ISP and you do not plan for 
redundancy then the failure is YOURS and not the ISP's limited access 
policy.  The ISP's limited access policy has to do with their overhead 
models and that's all there is to that.

Sorry to bring daylight into this but it is what it is... YOU MUST plan 
for redundancy.
