If more server farms aren’t built – and a state-of-the-art data center can cost up to $1,000 a square foot, five times the cost of conventional office space – the squeeze might even crimp the ability of Net up-and-comers to bring new innovations to market. “I’m not seeing what I need to see” in terms of new capacity coming online, says Jay Adelson, the CEO of social networking Web site Digg.com, who also started Equinix Inc. (EQIX ), a Foster City (Calif.) company that operates centers. Digg.com secured space in Equinix facilities, but Adelson asks: “There are hundreds of me out there, and where are we all going to go? There isn’t [enough] data center space.”The impending supply vs. demand imbalance “amounts to a gold rush for the companies supplying land, equipment, and services for data centers,” Business Week notes.
