Psst! You wanna buy a data center?

Well, ok not an entire data center but my share of the CIX data center.

As I have mentioned before, I am moving to Spain in July. When I move, I will no longer be able to make a meaningful contribution to the further development of CIX and in that scenario it would not be helpful of me to hold onto my shareholding.

This is an opportunity for someone with a passion for data centers/hosting to purchase an interest in Ireland’s newest and Greenest data center at a very early stage in its business life. The buy in price now will be cheap compared to how much the shares should be worth in a couple of years.

Because of its strong focus on energy efficiency from the outset, and the open approach we took in the build, CIX has received a lot of very positive publicity. This has obviously translated into goodwill, business enquiries and servers in racks.

Whoever buys the shares will need to be able to commit serious time to further growing CIX’s business (and therefore their investment).

For the right candidate with the correct technical skills my business partners would be willing to be very innovative around how the funding is set up so don’t think big money to buy into this.

If you are interested in this opportunity, drop me a mail or give me a call to discuss.

  1. He won’t take a fiver Mark, I already asked. You’ll need to push to a tenner or maybe even more.

    (In all seriousness, I’m very sad to see Tom leaving us as he’s really driven this project in terms of awareness, and I’d stress what he has to say about this opportunity: we’re only getting off the ground with the DC now because of a couple of minor bureacratic glitches, but the interest we’ve seen is astounding. There’s zero doubt in my mind that we’ll beat our targets month on month in CIX, and the connection-making opportunities are incredible. Plus it’s a data centre, which of course is effectively a playground to any legitimate techie. 🙂

  2. @Cork Fella, it isn’t down from here and I have checked it from a few different paths. Can you confirm it is still down for you?

  3. Hi Tom,

    I followed up with the email after I posted this last night.. Should have told you to delete my comment, seems to be a prob on vodafone 3G last night. Delete the comments by all means.

  4. Now – this would be an excellent opportunity, and I would not mind moving to Ireland either, would be a great excuse to move there. 🙂

    What are your plans when you move to Spain?
