  6. Does having a Green data Centre make a difference in making a buying decision?
  7. If your provider has a certification would that make a difference?  In no… why ?  If yes – what are the most important certifications that your provider should have, and why?
  8. If I am carrier neutral, would that make a difference? If so why?
  9. If I offer network edge capabilities, would you re-consider moving your data centre to mine?
  10. Over the next 3 (or maybe 5) years, how do you see the “mix” of your platforms changing between

  • Managed services – having someone else provision and manage your own environment
  • Private cloud
  • Public cloud(s)

11. If I could answer 2 questions for you about the data centre industry, what would be those 2 questions?
