 From what I've seen? No.

At the moment, the top priority of colocation customers is power 
availability, followed swiftly by price.

It is slowly turning into a seller's market - IF the facility has 
available power (and I pity those facilities who are at their 
limits), but the customer is still primarily picking on $s alone.

WRT security process and procedures, most customers seem to be just 
interested if they exist. Of course they want them applied very 
strictly to everyone else but THEM.
