Study: Energy efficiency in European data centersOctober 16, 2018Much has been written about energy efficiency in data centers, but there has been a noticeable lack of quantifiable research on the topic. For this reason, the OCP commissioned IHS Markit to study which efficiency measures companies have already implemented and what they are looking to do in the future.
OCP European Data Center Energy Analysis Report - 2018October 03, 2018The Open Compute Project (OCP) commissioned IHS Markit to analyze the current and future state of data center energy efficiency in the European market, if and how Open Compute Project equipment plays a role.Subscribers Only
45.4 billion internet connectable devices in 2021 – Changing the future of colocationsMarch 05, 2018IHS Markit forecast internet connectable devices to grow from 27.5 billion in 2017 to 45.4 billion in 2021; a 65% increase in just four years. What does this mean for the colocation market? Well first, it’s certainly a positive driver for colocation revenue growth; however, it’s not the 1:1 ratio many industry enthusiasts once thought. Second, it’s giving colocation service providers a new opportunity to assist with the aggregation and connectivity of new end-points and data sources.
Cloud, the Internet of Things, and the Edge – How the colocation market will evolveNovember 09, 2017The market for colocation services is dynamic. It’s marked by frequent mergers and acquisitions, sales of assets, and an evolution of drivers. All of which have led to steady double-digit CAGRs for over a decade. As with so many tech industries, colocation will be changed by its relationship with the Internet of Things. But before jumping into the future, let’s take a quick look in the review mirror.

Colocation data center revenue projected to grow near 10% in 2017April 13, 2017Wholesale and retail colocation data center revenues crossed over the $20 billion mark in 2016 and the current year is already showing promise. Based on recent findings from the IHS Markit Multi-tenant Data Center Market Tracker, growth will come close to 10% for 2017.
Pre-integration of data center rack components is increasingly popularMarch 01, 2017In a recently-released IHS report on the IT rack and enclosure market, global sales through system integrators are forecast to grow at higher rates than any other sales channel through 2020, increasing from $105m in 2015 to $140m in 2020. IHS believes this is indicative of growing customer requests to have accessories and IT equipment integrated into IT racks and enclosures prior to shipment and installation in the data center. This can occur at multiple levels throughout the supply chain, and IHS segments the sales of IT racks and enclosures by IT distributors, datacom/electrical distributors, direct to the end user, system integrators and ‘other channels’ which include IT resellers, valued-added resellers, and e-tailers.

Cloud + Colo Companies Account for 40% of All Data Center Space WorldwideJanuary 05, 2017The top 145 cloud and colocation companies are now estimated to account for 40% of all data center square footage worldwide, according to a new study by IHS. This is a remarkable figure given that Amazon’s AWS (the largest provider of IaaS) set up its first data center just ten years ago, in 2006. It was at this same time that Equinix (the top colocation provider) first purchased a data center campus in Ashburn, Virginia, a region that over half of the internet’s traffic now travels through. Cloud and colocation (colo) companies are growing (and building data centers) fast – and it’s changing the data center market in significant ways.

CenturyLink’s share of colocation market would nearly double following acquisition of Level 3October 31, 2016This morning, CenturyLink Inc. announced plans to purchase Level 3 Communications Inc. for $34B including the assumption of debt, a deal which will expand the telecom service provider’s fiber optic network and high-speed data services. This acquisition would also nearly double CenturyLink’s share of the colocation market from 6% of North American revenues to just over 11%. One major question that arises in the midst of CenturyLink’s efforts to divest its data center assets is, what will this new acquisition mean for the colocation businesses of both Level 3 and CenturyLink?

Huawei’s Way: Modular Data CentersApril 19, 2016Huawei is betting big on modular, and it is paying off. The company’s UPS portfolio has transitioned to mostly modular products, and it is also continuing to invest in its containerized and modular data center solutions. IHS is still in the process of finalizing 2015 numbers for the UPS and containerized data center markets, but it looks like Huawei grew multiple times faster than market average.
Multi-tenant data center supplier consolidation driving down revenues in power and cooling marketsApril 06, 2016Everyone talks about the booming data center market – multi-tenant data center (MTDC) space grew 10 percent last year, server sales grew at a similar pace, and cloud services continue to grow at 30+ percent a year. However, IHS has been tracking the data center infrastructure market for over a decade, and sees revenue continuing to fall in several key segments. The figures for 2015 are still being finalized, but it looks like UPS sales were down somewhere between 5 and 10 percent, rack PDU fell about one percent, and IT racks and enclosure sales remain flat.
