Colo Space Shortages in North Jersey

Colocation space is growing scarce in North Jersey data centers, according to a discussion on the NANOG list.

Colocation space is growing scarce in North Jersey data centers, according to a discussion today on the North American Network Operators Group (NANOG) mailing list. The thread was started by a member who was unable to find space (or at least space with sufficient power) for a 10x10 cage in the Jersey City area.

List veteran Martin Hannigan noted that subleases are probably available, but probably not cheap. "On many of the public colo houses earnings calls, they told analysts that they are trying to keep contracts to one year so they can raise prices year over year, that power pricing is fluid and many facilities are being expanded, (and) that most locations really are full or being held down by lack of cooling for existing dense rack space," Hannigan noted in a follow-up post.
