Data Center Services Market in Latin America, Forecast to 2022 The data center market remains warm due to the migration of on-premises infrastructure to service providers to ensure business continuity, lower operational costs, and increase physical and logical security. Despite the positive scenario, telecom operators still find it difficult to compete with the large data center and cloud service providers. Opportunities appear for the providers that have included in their portfolio the services of infrastructure management through network monitoring, servers, applications, and security as a way to present a greater value add, minimizing the commoditization of data center services.--BEGIN PROMO--

Research Highlights

This study covers the following data center services:

  • Colocation: It includes the rent required to host a server, comprising physical infrastructure of the data center, space in the rack/cage, and data infrastructure.
  • Dedicated hosting: Solutions involve a server, which is located at a dedicated facility, with resources that include a secured cage or cabinet, regulated power, dedicated Internet connection, security, and support features. These facilities offer customers a secure place to physically host their applications and corporate processes, as opposed to locating them in their offices or warehouses where the potential for fire, theft, or vandalism is higher.
  • Disaster recovery: It includes associated expenditures specific to business continuity as well as recovery services in the data center.
  • Storage: Electronic computing devices capable of storing large amounts of digital information on permanently accessible media (hard drives or an arrangement of hard drives), mostly related to magnetic or optical media. These include all devices with the capacity to hold and retain data such as servers, add-on disks, and storage area network (SAN) equipment and solutions.

Only third-party data centers that provide infrastructure services to customers are considered. Captive data centers, which are built exclusively for the internal use of a company, are not in the project scope.

Frost & Sullivan conducted in-depth primary interviews with leading technology service providers, analyzed their annual reports, and used in-house databases to conduct a detailed analysis of the data center market. The resulting revenue market size reflects a total sum of our estimates for individual companies. This survey also provides information on growth opportunities and emerging trends that will affect market participants during the forecast period.

Key Issues Addressed

  • What are the main drivers and restraints affecting growth of the Latin American data center services market?
  • Will the market continue to grow? If so, at what rate?
  • Which vertical markets will deliver the greatest opportunities?
  • What types of data center services show the strongest demand? Is this expected to change?
  • What is the current market concentration? How will this change by the end of the forecast period?
  • How will this market develop in future?

Malaysia Data Center Services Market, Forecast to 2023 Hyperscale cloud service providers have been key in driving the demand for data center services in Malaysia, with more of these vendors identifying Malaysia as a country with rapid cloud adoption. For instance, earlier in May 2017, Alibaba Cloud announced its plans to open its first data center in Kuala Lumpur, increasing the company s footprint to a total of 15 data centers worldwide. Additionally, the Malaysian Government has been actively promoting Iskandar, Johor Malaysia, as a data center hub. It is positioning it as an alternative location to Singapore for the hosting of data, for Singaporean companies and global Multi-national Corporations (MNCs) intending to expand into Southeast Asia. In the same vein, the Malaysian Government has been embarking on numerous Smart City initiatives as a part of its Digital Transformation roadmap. A key tenet of these initiatives includes the need for data center modernization, as well as third-party outsourcing of edge data centers for latency-sensitive applications. At the same time, data center modernization has emerged as a leading priority for many enterprises in Malaysia.

This new generation desires unique and personalized products, quickly and on-demand. In the face of these changes in society, industrial companies are starting to react and change to remain competitive. To meet the needs of the consumers of tomorrow, industrial companies need to adapt and offer unique products targeted at profitable sub-segments, with highly flexible and agile operations. However, most industrial companies in developing nations are still leveraging low-cost labor instead of investing in IoT. In more developed regions of the Asia-Pacific, many companies still exhibit a wait and see mindset, keeping abreast of the potentials benefits of IIoT, while still resistant to move forward from legacy and familiar work processes. By using IoT sensors and data analytics, Industrial IoT projects can help companies gain visibility of operations so that managers can make decisions based on quantified data. This can lead to more efficient and agile operations, reducing unscheduled downtime and waste, while enhancing competitiveness.--BEGIN PROMO--
