What kind of buildings are best suited to turn into Data Centers? I'm thinking that you'll need low profile ones, as bigger ones then to be harder to secure, am I right?

Yes, i agree with you. If you are choosing a bigger data center then ensure to properly manage it. Its better to have a small but well managed and efficient data center.

I personally go in hunt of power, and connectivity in an area and then find a building to match my requirements.
It's all very well having a building, but if it's not near a HV path, then it's going to cost you a small fortune to get the power into the facility.
In regard to physical building properties, I prefer higher ceilings (remember, heat rises) allowing for lots of over head space, and also the ability to install a good height of raised flooring. Next is shape and spare land surrounding the building as well as all the other factors of additional risk (is it near a river/ stream, is there any chemical/ ga######us storage facilities in the vicinity etc..etc..)
Take a look at the Bunsfield Disaster in the UK a few years ago, that certainly made a large number of business sit up and realize that their choice of location wasn't that great.

My understanding of your question is building structure that is best for suited - What I look for limited to NO windows, High ceiling, large dock door. Grocery Stores are these types of structures. Then you need to make sure it meets you electrical, FIBER/Network, Gas, and water requirements

I totally agree too, a smaller establishment is easier to maintain and its better to maintain a smaller one that to mess up a bigger one.
