Data Centre Hosting costs per rack or per server

Ny company is looking at using 'one of the big providers' (ie either EDS, HP, CSC etc) to provide a fully managed data centre facility (shared, not built for us). Likewise, there is potential to have the same company manage the servers for HW and OS faults. This is about a 1000 servers, 1200 OS's (VMWare, Wintel, Unix) about 150 Racks plus a SAN with c 500 Tb of data. Any idea on what this might cost? ie unit prices for rack hosting, OS management etc?

We do fully managed hosting, but would need quite a bit more information to give you an idea on pricing.  We are in upstate NY and host 550 servers in one data center that are fully managed (hardware, maintenance, OS, backups, AV/Security, application support etc), and ~500 servers that we call "colo only" that allows customer complete access (we only provide the ping, rack space and power) and the pricing difference is substantial as you can imagine.  

Without prejudice, I'd be happy to help with questions and with the right questions to ask as you do your research!
