Lead analyst: Rahiel Nasir, Datacenter Services & Infrastructure AnalystMulti-tenant datacenter providers in the UAE’s retail colocation market are currently providing 305,000 square feet of powered floor space, with local telco Etisalat as the clear leader. According to Rahiel Nasir and data from 451 Research’s Datacenter KnowledgeBase, that market is expected to grow to about 350,000 square feet by the end of 2020. While retail colocation providers typically see incremental growth through smaller deals, demand across the UAE market is likely to remain at 50-60% in the coming years.This report provides an overview of the competitive dynamics in the United Arab Emirates?datacenter markets, a 451 Research Market Map of the competitors in the area, market share of the dominant providers, supply-demand and utilization trends, and discussion of planned multi-tenant datacenter builds.

Datacenters - 451 Research - Analyzing the Business of Enterprise IT Innovation Interview with Craig Matsumoto, Senior Analyst

Last year, we welcomed Senior Analyst Craig Matsumoto to the 451 family ?and we are so excited to have him back on stage at the Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit (HCTS). Craig will lead the “Building the Datacenter Fabric ?Networking Opportunities in the Datacenter World?session on September 24 at 1:15pm PDT, in the Orovada Breakout Room 2 at the Aria in Las Vegas.

Q: What will you be discussing in this session?
A: Something I've been calling 'the new enterprise network.' As enterprises have reached out to the cloud, they've often been content to use broadband internet or SD-WAN to connect there. Datacenters would like to present an alternative, aided by the agility of software-defined networking ?we're calling it software-programmable interconnection.

Q: Why is this topic significant?
A: I think the element of cloud dependency is underappreciated. As more mission-critical work moves to remote places ?clouds, SaaS providers, even edge computing ?I would expect some enterprises to find internet connectivity insufficient. We're going to discuss colocation as an alternative, but many enterprises don't think of colocation that strategically. About 30% use colocation, and of those, 53% use it for disaster recovery. It suggests a slim, tactical view of colocation. Is there a richer role that third-party datacenters can play for enterprises? I want to start some discussion on that.

Datacenters - 451 Research - Analyzing the Business of Enterprise IT Innovation$54-billion-by-2013,-according-to-datacenter-knowledgebase$54-billion-by-2013,-according-to-datacenter-knowledgebase
Today, we released projections that the global colocation and wholesale market will exceed $54 billion in revenue by 2023, according to its latest quarterly Datacenter KnowledgeBase (DCKB) ?which now tracks more than 6,100 facilities and 1,535 datacenter providers worldwide. 451 Research estimates that by the end of 2018, the market had $38.2 billion in revenue. Equinix and Digital Realty remained the global leaders with 9.9% and 6.3% market share, respectively. As for global colocation and wholesale datacenter supply, in terms of net operational square feet, 451 Research analysts expect to see an overall five-year CAGR of 6% by 2023, while global demand is anticipated to be slightly higher at a 7% CAGR. “Cloud provider demand continues to drive strong growth in the top datacenter markets and we expect that to spread beyond the top 20 global markets in the coming years,?said Kelly Morgan, VP of Datacenter Services & Infrastructure. “Some individual markets may see supply growth of 20% or higher, while other slower-growth markets will offset that to provide single-digit growth overall.”About Datacenter KnowledgeBaseThe Datacenter KnowledgeBase (DCKB) database covers more than 6,100 individual datacenters operated by 1,500+ datacenter companies serving North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Asia Pacific (APAC) and Latin America (LATAM).

Datacenters - 451 Research - Analyzing the Business of Enterprise IT Innovation
Combining a proprietary panel of more than 50,000 senior IT buyers with our robust data-collection methodologies, 451 Research's Voice of the Enterprise: Datacenter Transformation tracks and analyzes the disruption occurring in the market today and exposes the major opportunities for enterprises, IT vendors, suppliers and investors.The latest release includes the 451 Research Vendor Window, which plots enterprise adoption as well as Promise and Fullfillment indices that compare vendors' effectiveness at both marketing and execution. The Vendor Promise Index is designed to measure the perception of a vendor prior to purchase, while the Vendor Fulfillment Index is designed as a measure of execution effectiveness around service delivery and product performance post implementation. The study also looks at IT infrastructure and datacenter facility spending trends, datacenter building plans and workload deployment locations.We saw relatively high overall satisfaction reported by organizations that use colocation services. Whereas colocation is seen by some as the first logical step to full-blown cloud migration, these high ratings captured across the entire sample could further preserve a near-traditional IT ecosystem environment across the data center market, at least for the foreseeable future.Within those colocation vendor ratings, CyrusOne, Digital Realty Trust, Equinix and CenturyLink all received above-average ratings by customers both prior to purchase and after implementation. This is a challenging market fraught with fragmentation, but leaders in the space (including the aforementioned vendors) are delivering in accordance with customer expectations, particularly for reliability, uptime, network performance, and connectivity options.Learn more about Voice of the Enterprise here. ]]> (Kaitlin Buckley) Research & Data Tue, 07 Mar 2017 19:14:59 +0000
