About $3500 for a 10G Port at new UT Data Center

By David Gross

The University of Texas has just opened a new $32 million data center for use by the school's academic and administrative divisions.   Interestingly, the nonrecurring port fee for redundant 10G connections is about $3,500, not all that different from commercial co-location pricing.

1G port fees are still approximately $1,500 from most co-lo providers, although UT seems to be offering quite a deal at $475 per pair.   One factor to keep in mind is that there are no additional cross-connect or backhaul fees for the university's end users.
