Submission + - Starting a small Datacenter, what would you do?

Skal Tura writes: I have a chance to start out an small datacenter (21m2), on a building where comes a single 1Gbps fiber connection. So we are talking quite small operation here, maybe a maximum of 100 servers. The space itself is rather cheap, bandwidth costs a lot here in Finland. With 100Mbps connectivity this DC can be startup with as little as around maximum 700euro monthly costs (Space + Connectivity w/SLA + Networking gear electricity), or with non-SLA connectivity around 300euro per month. What would a fellow /. reader do with such an opportunity? What would you watchout for in this kind of an attempt? And what would you make of this opportunity? Price competition is easy here, normally colocation for midtower server costs 183e/month, with 500gb traffic cap. Dedicated market doesn't really exist here, but i lack the budget to provide dedicated services initially.
