Data Centre Hot Spots (Data Centre City Clusters) in Europe - 2019
The European Data Centre City Clusters – The Top 20 Hot Spot cities report - ranks the amount of third-party Data Centre raised floor space in each city cluster by size, and provides the key Data Centre facilities, Data Centre Ecosystems and the related Customer Ecosystems present.
The report covers just under 400 data centres across the 20 European cities.
The report is composed of three sections:
SECTION 1 - Introduction – European Data Centre City Cluster Hot Spots – The Top 20 cities – includes an analysis of the key trends in the report, the size of each Data Centre city cluster, the growth forecast of each Data Centre city cluster, the key Data Centre facilities, the Data Centre Ecosystems and the Customer Ecosystems present.
SECTION 2 – The Top 20 Data Centre City Cluster Hot Spots in Europe – the Top 20 city clusters are shown ranked by cluster size in Data Centre raised floor space – including the key statistics, total Data Centre raised floor space and power, forecast growth rates, key facilities, Data Centre Ecosystems, Customer Ecosystems and a key point summary.
SECTION 3 – Forecasts & Conclusions to the Top 20 city Hot Spot Data Centre clusters in Europe – includes a forecast for Data Centre city cluster by Data Centre raised floor space and DCCP (Data Centre Customer Power) from the end of 2018 to the end of 2022 and the key trends from the European Data Centre City Clusters.
The report highlights that Data Centres are undergoing a change as markets mature. Despite the growth in Data Centre facilities at the edge, the number of Data Centre City Clusters is growing, and the size of selected Data Centre City Clusters continues to grow in the hub.
The majority of third-party Data Centre facilities in Europe are now located in a large city hub close to a large population centre. Large city Data Centre hubs are generating their own connectivity and customer ecosystems, which in turn are creating their own demand.
New Data Centre facilities are increasingly being located in existing Data Centre city clusters, where there is an established ecosystem established.
