Reviews, bad review, do not consider.

Cost and Maintenance. It is should be very transparent.

Uptime, staff and support. You can end up sending NOC emails almost everyday, better to have good reply to them also.

These are all great reasons. You might add:

1. Redundant network hardware (borders, core routers...)
2. Do they reside on a protected power grid (e.g. exempt from rolling blackouts)?

When you choose a data center, I would suggest to consider below information.

1. Location

2. Flexibility and Expansion Capability (Scalability)

3. Reliability

4. Budget

5. Service Level Agreement Negotiation

6. Determine Space and Power Requirements For Colocation Space

7. Data Center Support

Location, uptime, network stability, and reviews are mostly what I look at when looking for a data center. Everything starts from the data center and if the data center is a disaster then gg

That pretty much sums it up for me. Almost in the same order.

There are a range of variables to consider and similar to what others have listed I would say these are some of the key areas to identify.

- Network Infrastructure
- Location of DC
- Surveillance infrastructure and the Onsite Security
- Power Redundancy
- IT Support & Customer Service
- Fire Suppression & Cooling
- Costs

The only thing i usely think about when choosing a data center is that the price is vary cheap as i have way too low margins to consider any thing ease.

Very good answer, you can add a coin and it is complete.

The problem with "Reliability" is that you don't know until you are there and same for "Support. I never trusted reviews, never.
