The datacentre market has evolved over the last two decades with a range of developments from both within the sector and outside the industry, as well as, competition from ‘neighbouring’ sectors of the industry. Apart from the datacentre operators, telco wholesale companies, cloud computing companies and specialised IT companies are vying for this market.
Many of the larger data centre providers have been expanding into new international markets in recent years. This is driven partly by a growing need for enterprises to have data stored locally in order to meet security and privacy laws and operational costs.
Recently growth in South East Asia has been driven by the international expansion of mainland Chinese players and cloud service providers in Asia, and strong migration to outsourced data centres by enterprises pursuing a hybrid cloud strategy.
BuddeComm’s new series of Data Centre reports analyse the recent market developments and trends, provides statistics and forecasts on key areas such as floor space and power load and detailed profiles on the key data centre providers.
After being away from the market for 6 years, I am glad to see that your site has been enriched with more reports and opinions. I’m looking forward to exploring what I used to consider as the best reliable source of information in the market.
