A Demand-Side Survey of the Australian Datacentre Landscape
This IDC study provides an analysis of the results of a survey of end-user organisation datacentre owners in Australia and paints a picture of the national facilities landscape based on extensive modelling.
"Whilst the Australian end-user datacentre landscape is dominated by a high volume of server rooms and closets, the majority of IT spending goes into a highly concentrated percentage of enterprise and midtier facilities," says IDC senior analyst, Trevor Clarke. "Whilst we are witnessing significant change in the supply side of the market with some large bets being placed by datacentre SPs in 2011, the demand side will move at a slower pace and most organisations will upgrade existing facilities instead of building afresh in the next three to five years."
