Assuming packages are exactly the same, I’d pick NTT. Being an SI it’d be more intellectually stimulating than providing just “rack space” as you’d be exposed and requested to deal with a broad variety of solutions. The co-Lo market is interesting don’t get me wrong, but how would you differentiate the offerings during a negotiation is what makes the sales process exciting imho.

Strategically I think you're also right. I've been in infrastructure managed services for 6 years. Rackspace offering a similar direct sales role for new business: secops, managed services, colo, azure, aws, gcp.
NTT more account management focused so more expansive. Similar MSP approach but definitely larger product offering

NTT has a more interesting business model and is still a very, very popular service provider and has immense global reach.

I would sya NTT personally, I think there's more to cut your teeth on and it's still quite popular overall

I would also say NTT for all the reasons listed above. They are a really great company to work for.

Thanks everyone, will continue exploring the NTT opp, seemingly more opportunities to add value, plus I'd be dealing with existing customers as opposed to new business.

Good approach, OP! Good luck!
