Re: Independent rating service of colocation facilities

Class A office space usually is a vague real estate term for "nicer" space.
 I've never found a suitable definition. One's class is apparently
self-branded ;-) It seems it usually means that that walls aren't broken,
the doors aren't scuffed, and the carpet is replaced before it smells too
bad. ;-)

I can't think of how "Class A" office space would be a benefit to
colocation, though one of my sites is located in a landlord-described
"Class A" building.

I would count it as marketing filler.
