BuddeComm Intelligence Report - The Changing Data Centre Landscape


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

The data centre market is an extremely complex one, with many diverse aspects to it. There are literally millions of data centres worldwide and 99% of them are embedded in the IT operations of the organisations that generate and use that data.

This BuddeComm Intelligence Report offers BuddeComm’s unique insights into the changing data centre landscape due to the increasing data storage demands, rising energy costs and pressure on companies to appear environmentally pro-active. This in turn is leading to a growing demand for data centres, either operated by the cloud provider or utilised as third party infrastructure.

Latest developments:

In 2013 there is a growing awareness of the ongoing maintenance and energy costs to operate data centres; In late 2012 the introduction of Google Spanner changed the data centre landscape; With the focus on energy use and efficiency squarely focused on data centres in the IT sector, there has been a growing discussion around the use of Direct Current (DC) power as opposed to Alternate Current (AC) power; With the enormous explosion in cloud computing and related OTT services; secondary data centres are becoming a parallel trend to what is happening with the large data centres.
