Step-by-Step: Build a Data Center

Info-Tech research shows that data centers
cost between $400 and $700 per square foot.
Lower than industry conventions.
  • Using conventional industry standards can lead to over-estimating the build budget; Info-Tech's research shows actual costs are 22% less.
  • Organizations that rely on the industry standard of $600 to $900 per square foot when creating their budgets run the risk of over budgeting and over spending.
  • As a result, general benchmarks should not be used for a data center build.
  • Organizations should complete their own detailed investment and expenses to accurately budget for their builds.
