Remove the uncertainty and hassle of gathering data center provider prices.

If you search for data center colocation services, it can be very difficult to compare what you are really being sold. Many leaders readily admit this purchasing activity is not something that IT professionals (or the C-suite) do very often. Perhaps only every 5 to 10 years.

And, the industry is continuing to evolve, moving from a rack pricing model to a variable consumption pricing model. If you talk to 5 different providers, you could get several different calculations on pricing on power alone – price per kilowatt, price based on circuits, metered, and all-in.

Citadel will bring all these prices in alignment and provide you with the best options for your business. For example, Citadel will help you understand, that for circuit-based pricing, you’ll want to know how much power you receive and

if your current and future power density be supported.

For metered kilowatt-based pricing, you’ll need to drill into maximum capacity based on the allowable density within the data center. Whereas, ‘All In’ kilowatt pricing differs because all your charges are included in the price per kilowatt.

In addition to these pricing options, you’ll need to watch for common area fees, management fees, fuel charges, and other hidden charges.

Avoid the Data Center Pricing Shell Game

The data center provider pricing shell game enables providers to initiate a conversation with you on pricing that you  may compare against the competition. However, providers may be ‘hiding’or ‘adding’ fees ‘below the fold.’

Providers can easily confuse a buyer who doesn’t purchase data center colocation space very often. This could result in improperly comparing price quotes and ultimately purchasing services, entering into a long-term contract, and then finally sharing a surprise “bottom-line price” – once the invoice arrives.

Pricing alone shouldn’t be the deciding factor for prospective data center colocation customers. At Citadel, you’ll get a thorough understanding of pricing, as well as additional services such as global accessibility, connectivity features, remote hands services, and customer ecosystems.
