The augmented need for colocation and managed service data centers is a critical factor that is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Data center colocation is a facility to rent servers, storage, and network. It enables minimal utilization of power and bandwidth, and enhances the security of enterprise IT equipment. The advent of the managed services model is expected to aid enterprises in the efficient operation of their IT infrastructure and also helps to achieve better uptime and availability of resources.

“A containerized data center is a portable data center pre-installed inside a shipping container. These data centers are a part of a modular data center, in which each module is a container that can host IT, power, and cooling equipment. These data centers are available in the length of 40 ft and 20 ft, and delivered to end-users on demand,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of Technavio Research.

“The deployment cost of a containerized data center facility is less compared to building and renovating a new traditional data center facility. These data centers are easy to relocate from one location to another and can be managed centrally.”

To define the market conditions in the next 3-4 years, Technavio analysts have conducted in-depth analysis of the impact of market drivers, challenges and trends featuring data on product segmentations, vendor shares, growth rate by revenue and an evaluation of the different buying criteria in the order of importance.
