Around the world, we are witnessing a growing number of data centres being built and there is further growth ahead in 2019. This is due to the rising need for data management and cloud services fuelled by the increasing volume of data usage.
Developments relating to Smart Cities; IoT; M2M and Blockchain combined with the rising use of mobile data and data intensive services such as video-streaming are all contributing to an enormous growth of data traffic.
There will be an increased focus on large hyperscale data centres and many of these leading players are expanding internationally as enterprises realize they need to store data locally in order to comply with various security and privacy laws in different countries. It will become more and more difficult for the smaller data centre players to compete with these larger providers.
The continuing growth in the volume of data traffic along with a growing demand for efficient data management – means there are a number of opportunities for the telecoms operators in this space.
This BuddeComm Intelligence Report offers unique insights into the changing data centre landscape due to influences such as increasing data storage demands, rising energy costs, pressure to appear environmentally pro-active and changing technologies. It explores opportunities for the telecoms sector and provides examples and statistics where applicable.
In 2019 interest in data centres will remain a hot topic due to the escalating requirements for data management. Developments relating to Artificial Intelligence will also impact upon data centres once this market becomes more defined. Edge Computing will be a growth area for the next few years.
