Data Center Colocation Market Size worth $90bn by 2024

Data Center Colocation Market size is set to exceed USD 90 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.

The complexities in the infrastructure facilities due to the integration of new technologies such as network and connectivity devices is increasing rapidly. Companies are finding it difficult to manage such complicated network devices thereby forcing them to transfer these responsibilities to colocation service providers. The process of hosting an onsite facility requires skilled employees to run the operations. It also involves expenditure on infrastructure maintenance and server management. In addition, setting up a new facility increases the overall CAPEX of enterprises and requires a large amount of initial investments. This has led to SMEs and large enterprises increasingly switching to colocation hosting, thereby driving the data center colocation market demand. These service providers offer several services such as skilled managed IT services, internet solutions, and interconnection services based on enterprise requirements.
