The third annual Greater New York Data Center Summit attracted the C-suite executives of national and regional data center companies and end-users, as well as investors in the data center industry. Jim Kerrigan, director of data centers for Avison Young, gave an overview of the national data center market, stating that 2013 saw significant downward pricing pressure in key markets, particularly on larger wholesale transactions. Markets with data center space in supply were Asburn, Va., Atlanta, Ga., and Santa Clara, Calif., while those with less supply included San Antonio, Texas, Miami, Florida, and downtown Chicago. More details on the regional and national data center market outlooks were discussed.
