The Sky tower is a bit expensive for rack space though :|

It's hard to beat Sky Tower if you want a facility that's well serviced by
New Zealand telecommunications providers. All the providers are there in
some way or another. APE and F-Root servers are there. The tower managers,
JDA, are not related to any of the carriers, so they're as neutral as you
Drawbacks are fairly limited and relatively expensive floor space and
cooling options. Good for routers and switches, maybe not so good for blade
servers or high-density, high heat applications.

Subject: [nznog] Carrier-neutral colo and peering in Auckland
I'm after some information about carrier-neutral colocation in the Auckland
area in New Zealand.
I'd be looking at installing a rack worth of equipment, consuming a couple
of kW of power at most. It'd need to be in a facility that's well- serviced
by TNZ, TelstraClear or Vector Communications; But preferably able to
interconnect with arbitrary other carriers so that we can provide our
Australian business/corporate/wholesale customers with IP and MPLS access to
their NZ offices (or vice versa) with minimal obstacles.
Nearby availability of peering exchanges would be a definite plus.
has a fairly promiscuous peering policy, and we prefer bilateral peering
relationships outside Australia, but MPLA works for us too if it's easy.
I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to the New Zealand "scene". If anyone
feels inspired to send me some off-list information or advice, I'd
