DataCentrePricing.Com (DCP), specialists in Data Centre trends and pricing, finds that third party Data Centre space and power is growing in selected markets in Europe - with new Data Centre growth focused on the city areas of Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Slough.
This current issue of Euro-Data Centre Tracker Trends service has identified the following trends:
The largest Data Centre cluster (by raised floor space) is Frankfurt - which has succeeded the London & Inner M25 area as the largest Data Centre cluster in Europe – and is responsible for the majority of German Data Centre space. The next largest Data Centre area clusters in Europe are - Paris, Amsterdam, Slough (UK) and Dublin.
DCP's analysis from both the Europe and UK Trackers highlights the key common trends taking place in the Data Centre Country Markets across Europe. The third party Data Centre market in Europe is being transformed by the emergence of city Data Centre clusters – which are acting as connectivity hubs – in a number of cities across Europe.
DCP has identified that there are currently 22 Data Centre city clusters in Europe with more than 20,000 m2 of third party Data Centre raised floor space – with five clusters in the UK (including London, Slough, Cardiff, Manchester & Woking) and three clusters in Germany (including Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin).
Increasingly, Data Centre Providers are competing to provide cloud connectivity to the key Cloud Service Providers via a cloud exchange aiming to attract the enterprise customer to the facility - which is driving the Data Centre clusters’ status as a connectivity hub. And the amount of connectivity available from a Data Centre facility helps determine whether a price premium can be charged – the more connectivity available the higher the price premium.
