Tier1: Higher Prices Ahead for Data Centers

from Data Center Knowledge:

>>“I think we’re going to see data center prices increasing significantly in the third and fourth quarter,” Golding said Tuesday in his keynote at Tier1’s first Datacenter Transformation Summit in Herndon, Va. “We think we’re going to see 7 to 10 percent price increases annually until credit eases, plus another 18 months (to fund and build new data centers). This is good for providers but not for enterprises. Now is the time for enterprises to lock in. There are lots of things you can get a discount on by waiting. Data centers are not one of them.”
