Overview of the data center market in Europe

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the data center market in Europe will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 10% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increased use of containerized data center modules as one of the primary factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. With the availability of portable data centers that are pre-installed inside a shipping container, enterprises have started building modular data centers that include several data center container modules in a single facility. These data center modules can host IT, power, and cooling equipment and are available in various sizes depending on the needs of the end-user. Moreover, since these containerized data centers can host a wide range of racks and computing equipment within a container, their deployment time and cost is much lesser than traditional data centers. This will induce enterprises in the region to prefer building modular data centers, in turn, propelling the market’s growth prospects.
