BuddeComm has been supportive of the data centre market since the 1990s. However, it took nearly 20 years for the industry to reach its current position. The arrival of cloud computing, Big Data, M2M and IoT allowed for a large range of new services and applications, especially aimed at small and medium organisations.
The data centre market includes telehousing facilities, co-location facilities, cloud and IT services, content hosting, connectivity and interconnection. They are important for a range of business and government applications including new developments of cloud computing and the Internet of Things (M2M).
Currently the developments are highly centralised in the capital cities, but a more decentralised trend is expected to develop over time.
Data centre customers are migrating from co-location services and managed hosting to cloud services. Cloud providers are the fastest growing segment of most Australian data centre providers.
Government continues to increase in maturity in their understanding of cloud technologies, how to use cloud to the best of their advantage, and how to optimize their existing infrastructure.
Major global cloud service providers have huge growth expectations for Asia Pacific region and these providers are investing their capital to reflect their rapid growth.
In response to this growth, a number of existing major Australian data centre providers such as Digital Reality and Metronode and new regional providers such as AirTrunk are ramping up local data centre capacity.
Australia has progressed to now be one of the four major sub-markets for data centres in Asia alongside Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. Greater diversity however has led to the fact that it is now harder to serve the entire region from one location. The Asia-Pacific region is currently undergoing very strong wholesale colocation growth driven by large-scale global cloud providers including Amazon Web Service (AWS), Google, Microsoft and IBM as they expand aggressively in major hubs.
This report overviews the different forms of data centres, the growth of neutral facilities, and gives an insight into the size of the general data centre market, the trends occurring in it, and the major players in the sector. Of the major players the role of the telcos is included and a number of smaller independent providers are profiled.
