Internet Data Centers
The global market for Internet Data Centers (IDCs) is projected to reach US$89.5 billion by 2022, driven by the many benefits of cloud computing including infinite low cost storage against the backdrop of exponential increase in data generation. With growing emphasis on cost reduction, the benefits of shared infrastructures are emerging into the spotlight, thereby driving popularity of third party, outsourced IDCs. The continuous evolution of IT, development of cloud computing technology and increasing role of mobility in enterprise operations are fueling investments in IDCs. The market is also being positively impacted by the focus on green IT against the backdrop of companies seeking to attain the benefits of business energy efficiency, sustainability and green accreditations. Benefits of IDCs include flexibility in servers, storage and networking deployment and management; on-demand resource scalability; stability and security; greater redundancy than on-premise counterparts; more efficient disaster recovery and business continuity; easy and cost-effective migration path; and uninterrupted connectivity to the datacenter, among others. Other major factors also expected to influence market growth include development of cloud computing technology which represents the foundation for the evolution of IDCs; explosion of big data, rapid proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) and the ensuing data overload, increased datacenter capacity needs and increased investments in IDCs; heterogeneous IT environments and rising adoption of hybrid clouds; rise of enterprise mobility, increased deployment of bring your own device (BYOD) programs and the ensuing demand for anytime, anywhere access to corporate data which can be fulfilled only by an agile always-on IDC hosted on a cloud. The United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is poised to record the fastest CAGR of 20.6% over the analysis period, led by the development of the enterprise sector; growing cloud readiness of Asian economies; increased reliance of emerging Asian economies on digitalization, the Internet and transformative enterprise technologies; exploding Internet data traffic, rapid expansion of cloud-based services and increased adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) in several countries across the region.

Product Definition & Scope
  • “Internet Data Centers” (IDCs) are defined as datacenters connected to and accessed through the Internet. An IDC is commonly referred to as an outsourced solution and unlike data centers specifically built for a single large company, these datacenters are third party data centers hosted on behalf of companies and are designed to house all data-storage functions of clients and/or house all servers and related internet equipment. And unlike conventional third party hosted data center, wherein private connectivity is provided for companies to access the data center, IDCs utilize the internet as the only connectivity highway for clients to access the data center.
