New Zealand: Snap to charge customers just by power they consume

Provisioning and paying for electricity consumption accounts for so much of the cost of running computer equipment that a new Christchurch data centre company has decided to charge customers solely on the basis of how much power they use.


The Colocation Company has invested about NZ$2 million turning a former Sydenham clothing factory into an 800 sq m data centre. General manager Ian Falconer says it will charge 61 cents a kilowatt hour for hosting customer equipment. The company is owned by the founders of five year-old internet provider Snap Internet, a relatively young ISP that has enjoyed significant growth in recent years.
