Europe Still Reveals Strong Growth Outlook for Datacentres Says Broadgroup Consulting
LONDON --(Business Wire)--
Despite concern about economic challenges in Europe, datacentre
outsourcing growth will remain resilient, said BroadGroup Consulting in
a forthcoming report, Datacentres Europe IV.
The first details of the new report results will be presented at
Datacentres Europe 2012 which takes place in Nice, France 23-24 May (www.datacentreseurope.com).
The report notes that there has been concern that economic challenges in
Europe would impact the growth of datacentre outsourcing but the market
remains highly resilient. Outsourcing remains less than 15% in Western
Europe creating significant growth opportunities, allied to ongoing
demand for datacentre space from growth in cloud computing, bandwidth
usage, digital media, e-commerce, social networking, mobile and more
vertical market elements such as increased regulation in certain
industries. The high cost of self-build ha encouraged more companies to
consider an outsourced solution.
Cloud computing is a new vertical market driver with colocation
companies now seeing as much as 30% of revenues from this segment.
Although each country in Europe has specific issues which are covered in
detail in the report there remains an ongoing focus on Frankfurt, Paris,
London and Amsterdam, but cities such as Dublin and Zurich are seeing
strong growth. The Nordic and Scandinavian countries - who will be
present at the event - are looking to take advantage of low cost power
and government incentives.
"A key part of the report will be assessing the competitive landscape
and how this will evolve in the next five years," said Steve Wallage,
managing director, BroadGroup Consulting. "The Western European market
remains characterized by many small and specialist third party
facilities - for example, BroadGroup has identified over 400 such
datacentres in the UK. At the other end of the scale, the largest
players are growing in size and increasingly differentiated by their
breadth of portfolio and financial strength. While the strong recent
performance of the outsourced datacentre market has tended to help the
vast majority of providers, the market will increasingly be divided into
winners and losers."
One of the other key parts of the report will analyze and forecast
future datacentre outsourcing, in a world increasingly complicated by
offerings such as who-lo, modular and DCaaS. Equally, how will pricing
evolve from the current focus on space and racks.
Datacentres Europe 2012 (http://www.datacentres2012.com/)
is the leading regional event for the datacentre and cloud sector. Now
in its 8th year, it will host more than 100 speakers, and 750
attendees representing 33 countries. Attendees at the event will receive
a voucher to purchase their copy of the new report with a discount.
