    which one is cheaper for Power and space?

    Really depends on the cabinet configuration. Are you wanting 1 (A) circuit? Or are you wanting A+B circuits on same PDU? Or do you want A+B circuits on 2 different PDU's at the facility for redundancy, or do you want A+B circuits that is backed up by a N+1 2N (Tier 4) facility? Each power redundancy option has costs associated to it, the Tier 4 power will be the most expensive of the options.

    Las Vegas has really developed some great data center options in the last few years. All that available land has allowed them to build some really nice data centers from the ground up. As a bonus it's generally cheaper than LA and it also does not have the seismic risk of LA.

    Switch with their uber secure data centers is impressive. ViaWest with their new high end facility is aggressive with pricing. Budget friendly older operations like Corelink are available. About the only downside is nearly all peering to other networks is going to go via LA which adds an extra 5-10ms of latency.

    Vegas has some pretty broad options. Viawest bought Corelink's Vegas site. You might also check into Cobalt Data Centers, Fiberhub, and maybe lv.net. zcolo and twtelecom also have sites there.

    Vegas vs. LA....definitely Vegas...personal opinion.

    This situation is actually improving dramatically, as more and more carriers are building out IP PoP's in Las Vegas. we see a pretty significant amount of traffic that heads out to SLC, PHX, or DEN directly, rather than going to LAX before heading east. Local-to-local is still a work in progress, though, with a fair amount of local traffic doing a round-trip to LAX to be peered.

    I completely agree. Over the past 12-18 months things have significantly changed.
    With that said, Fiberhub is a good provider with great power/space/bandwidth rates.

    I would suggest Las Vegas. Not only is the power grid in ca already weak since the San onofre nuclear plant shut down. You also have taxes soon to hit our industry in that already desperate state.

    It's still behind say Phoenix in carriers available there aren't a lot in Phoenix. Los Angeles just has all the carriers anyone would need. Until this picks up, this is the problem.

    LA= Better network availability. Check out 900 N Alameda, and 600 W 7th st. A ton of connectivity options.

    LV=super low prices. Space/power would be the primary benefit here

    For IP transit LA is a much better choice. Space and power are obviously more advantageous being in the desert versus a metro area like LA. Try 1 Wilshire, there are a ton of providers at that location.
