Considering Nevada for colocation?
According to a recent study by The Pew Charitable Trusts, Nevada received a “C-” for its workforce. The study found that the applicant pool was thin, especially around Las Vegas, and that the state struggled to fill high-level information technology specialists. This lack of qualified IT talent does not bode well for businesses looking to Nevada to meet their colocation needs.
Nevada derives more than 90% of its energy from price-volatile fossil sources including coal and gas. According to the Energy Information Administration, the cost per kilowatt hour for commercial and industrial users in Nevada is almost $.11. With the exception of California, this represents the most expensive energy in the Western United States. The uncertainty and high cost of electricity in Nevada make it a questionable choice for businesses that require always on availability for their IT systems and applications.
