    If you have to come here to ask such a complex question, I recommend you hire a consultant for your investment. There are way to many variables to even pretend to get a sensible answer from this (or any) forum.

    Well, building a datacenter is expensive, and can take a lot of time. It also takes a lot of manpower.

    Building a datacenter isn't something that is easy as setting up a shared hosting account. You'll need the lines, servers, power, security staff and all. Building a datacenter can cost you millions. If you're just a new hosting company, you should get a VPS/dediserver instead of building a datacenter, which is really not needed.

    However, if you really want to go ahead - speak to a consultant. I think you can speak to Level(3). - Quality Hosting. Affordable Prices.

    Or you could buy a shipping container and build your DC in there, like Google does:

    Of course they had lots of money and time to perfect this for their own needs.
