Investment in Data Center Outsourcing Forecasted to double by 2016

Recent research by DCD Intelligence identifies that investment in outsourcing by data center operators in the Emerging EMEA region will double by 2016

Tuesday 28 January 2014 - 'Data Center Key Trends, Emerging EMEA', a newly released report by DCD Intelligence concludes that the total amount invested in outsourcing solutions will significantly increase over the next three years. This is despite the region currently being behind other regions in terms of its data center outsourcing profile, due to increased pressures placed on data center operators in terms of increased power, IT capacity planning and budgetary concerns.

Maturity in the Region
The most diverse of all the regions covered by the Key Trends series, the Emerging EMEA markets that were analysed differ greatly in terms of their economic, political and cultural profile but all share a common theme in terms of being classified under the DCD development index as "evolving markets". Characterised by smaller facilities, a lack of 'mega data centers', lower power per rack and a small percentage of data centers located in purpose built facilities, evolving markets show greater growth rates in terms of investment, power and space than their mature counterparts.

Nick Parfitt, Lead Analysis at DCD Intelligence explains, "Growth rates in the region continue to remain healthy in terms of space and investment especially in Turkey and Eastern Europe. Across the region we predict that growth rates for space will remain in double digits for the coming few years".

Space
The total amount of white space in the region is currently just under 1.4 million m2 with Russia accounting for by far the largest proportion of the market at 650,000 m2. The strongest growth has occurred in Turkey and Eastern Europe whilst the Middle East has witnessed a very small growth in total white space over 2012 levels.

Power
Emerging EMEA has witnessed a 13.2 per cent increase in data center power consumption over the past 12 months and while power per rack is still below levels in other regions, power consumption is expected to rise in line with the growth in white space through to 2016.

Emerging EMEA Key Trends 2013-2014
The Emerging EMEA Key Trends report examines six countries and provides data and insight into growth and trends in space, power, new technologies and investment. Containing data on a regional, country and industry vertical level alongside forecasts on key metrics, the report offers a thorough examination of the regions data center market.
