“This is a seismic event and shifts the whole playing field with respect to pricing, I’m afraid the halcyon days of flexible terms and incentives for buyers are well and truly over.”Anker says Redbus hosting customers will pass their increased costs along to customers. That’s not an easy thing to do nowadays, given the competitive pricing among resellers and shared hosting providers. It’s also important to note that colo space in London is reportedly in short supply, which should (in theory) allow for price hikes if demand remains high.Princing tends in the London market don’t necessarily translate to higher colo prices in markets with available space. Anker believes other European markets may see higher pricing as well. Nonetheless, as data center space continues to fill up in major markets, it will be interesting to see whether the Redbus hikes are reflected elsewhere.
