EMEA Datacenter 2015 Top 10 Predictions

This IDC study presents IDC's top 10 predictions for the EMEA datacenter infrastructure market in 2015, including trends in the supplier landscape, technology, and delivery mechanisms. "Datacenters in EMEA are undergoing broad transformation at all levels, from facilities to system management software. Although server spending growth in EMEA in 2015 will be almost flat in dollar terms, several elements of the markets are bound to grow strong, including richer x86 configurations for in-memory, hybrid cloud solutions, megadatacenters, and liquid-cooled systems. In particular, we need to take a close look at the now-established integrated systems market, where new models will bring disruption and new expansion opportunities," said Eckhardt Fischer, research analyst, IDC EMEA Enterprise Servers.
