If anyone can point me in the right direction for hosting facilities that handle s9's please let me know. So far it's been like throwing a dart at a map for figuring out who does what at x pricing.

Not interesting in hosting privately; looking for large professional(secure and accountable) facilities that are up for s9 hosting as well.

If this is the wrong place to ask, I apologize. Thanks

Most data centers are not going to be ideal for hosting unless you can find a Tier I or Tier II low-end one.

The vast majority of data centers are Tier III - with generators, UPSes, active cooling, fire-protection, early smoke detection (VESDA) etc.  That means they have a PUE factor of 1.4+ (e.g. They have an overhead of at least 40%, and thats for a pretty efficient one).  Your going to have to pay for all of that.

Its been awhile, but a couple of years ago, if you could get a $150/KW/month rate for data center space you were doing pretty good.  And that was for the big boys needing 10,000 sq ft+ of space (e.g. Wholesale space).  For a part of a rack, your likely going to be more like $450/KW/month.

Miners also qualify as "High Density" data center loads.  The typical commercial data center is designed to handle 2-4KW/Rack.  They may, however, have small High Density areas that are provided with more power and cooling - at a premium.  On the flipside, if they have a shared-rack concept (many require you to buy at least an entire rack), you MIGHT be able to cut a bit of deal since you could help balance them out.  Maybe.  For a smaller data center.  The big boys are not going to want to bother with you.

Last but not least:  Many data centers will laugh and send you packing when you mention wanted to do mining.  Over the years they have been burned repeatedly by miners abandoning gear (and not paying their bills) once the equipment ceases to be profitable.  I've personally seen rows of S1s? (the GPU ones) sitting idle with the owners asking me if they had any value in S7 days.

All that said, Raymond posted a good link for you to start research at:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=622998.0  Many of those appear to be asking more like $65/KW/Month, so I'm guessing they are lower Tier facilities (which is fine for your needs).

Sage words ccglic.

When I began 3 months ago, the price ranges between Tier 1/2 and other colos was pretty apparent.  The Tier 3/4 hosting facilities only accepted 100 miners or more, and the quotes they gave me DEFINITELY included overhead my chump change operation was not needing or financially feasible.

I hear Canada is nice this time of year?  Cool

Sorry I missed that part as it did not show up as a hyperlink. But I am guilty of not reading your response fully as well...
