Global Multi-tenant Data Center Market 2017-2021

About Multi-tenant Data Center

Multi-tenant data centers are data centers that are operated by third parties for multiple enterprise tenants. They are also called as colocation data centers. There are generally two types of multi-tenant data centers: Retail colocation, and Wholesale data centers. Retail colocation facilities are shared facilities where enterprises can rent space and host their IT equipment within the racks provided by the colocation vendors. A wholesale data center is a facility that is offered by the colocation vendor for exclusive and dedicated use.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global multi-tenant data center market to grow at a CAGR of 11.36% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing popularity of green data centers. The consumption of electricity and increase in carbon emission by data centers globally is creating awareness among enterprises of green data center facilities. These facilities help in the operation of energy-efficient power, IT, and cooling infrastructure with low carbon footprint and electricity consumption.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is reduction in capital and operational expenditure. Business operational demands are growing among enterprises worldwide, which has led to an increase in data center construction activities. The high capital expenditure can be attributed to the construction and operation of data centers. With the inception of colocation and managed services, enterprises that do not require data centers can collocate space and infrastructure, which is either managed or unmanaged.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is consolidation of data centers. Cost reduction is one of the major reasons behind enterprises considering data consolidation. Consolidation helps in saving the cost up to 30%, enhancing security up to 35%, reducing the power consumption by 55%, and improving efficiency by 50%. The US federal government is focused on reducing operational costs and providing an efficient cloud computing platform. Servers are being consolidated to work on a single piece of computing hardware as virtualization boosts the operating efficiency of the data center IT infrastructure.
