'Even taking the low end of the billable, it's still over £9k per 1U server per year.'

It's more reasonable if you take the projected number of servers (3 750), rather than the initial 550 though, or some sort of weighted average of the two. Throw in a minimum of 4 (n+1) redundant data centres, and the price is starting to look better.
