451 Research Customer Insight: Future-proofing your colocation business   

A Black & White paper is a study based on primary research survey data that assesses the market dynamics of a key enterprise technology segment through the lens of the "on the ground" experience and options of real practitioners - what they are doing and why they are doing it.

Demand for colocation and wholesale datacenters, with their readily available space and power, their professional operations teams and, increasingly, their rich connectivity and value-added offerings, has never been stronger. 451 Research forecasts that the operational square footage of the global colocation and wholesale sector will grow at a healthy 7% CAGR rom 2017 to 2020. This top-level data is conforting for the global ecosystem of datacenter suppliers and operators, , yet a closer analysis points to significant disruption ahead.
