Data Centre Middle East 2017 to 2020 Report
The 2017 Data Centre Middle East report is an s an extensively revised report from last year’s DataCentrePricing.Com Data Centre Middle East – 2016 report, published in early 2016.
The Middle East region is an increasingly important market for Data Centre providers, and continues to see growth in the development of new Data Centre facilities in the six Gulf States of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
The report reveals that new Data Centre facilities in the region continue to be constructed for three key reasons:
a) To support Government initiatives - including the creation of a National Data Centre, as part of an overall national IT or economic development plan
b) To expand Telecoms Provider services – with Telecoms Providers expanding their colocation, hosting or cloud services using new highly connected Data Centre facilities
c) To provide Data Centre facilities for IT services - in order to offer additional IT services and 3rd party outsourcing services including cloud & application services.
In this report, DataCentrePricing.Com has identified some 32 Data Centre providers with some 70 Data Centre facilities across the six Gulf State countries surveyed in the Middle East region.
From the 32 Data Centre providers identified by DataCentrePricing.Com in the Gulf States region, the majority (54% by the total number of facilities) - are using a telecoms-based business model.
