Worldwide Datacenter Installation Census and Construction Forecast, 2019–2023

This IDC study provides our annual summary of data from IDC's semiannual Worldwide and U.S. Datacenter Deployment Model data product (see Worldwide and U.S. Datacenter Deployment Model and Spend Forecast, 2H18: 2011–2023, IDC #US44887719, February 2019). It provides a census of worldwide datacenters by size, sophistication, and ownership. It assesses the impact of changing industry business models on datacenter design, construction, and management. In today's world of cloud, mobile devices, and cognitive systems, effective datacenter planning and management are critical to business success. More details on spending associated with datacenter construction and datacenter design approaches can be found in the current Worldwide and U.S. Datacenter Deployment Model."To drive the speed and agility that businesses demand, IT teams must deliver resources running in shared cloud datacenters as well as in dedicated systems on and off the business premises. The key challenge for CIOs and IT teams is to have a strategy that allows them to take advantage of the right technologies, supporting services, and economic models to optimally place workloads across all their datacenters," says Richard Villars, research vice president, Datacenter and Cloud.
