Frost & Sullivan: Rising Cost Pressures in Existing Data Center Hubs Shifts the Spotlight to New Markets PR Newswire SINGAPORE, July 10, 2012 - Asia Pacific market experiences renewed demand as organizations seek cost effective ways to meet increasing data center requirements SINGAPORE, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The traditional data center hubs of Hong Kong and Singapore are being confronted with several operational hurdles such as space restraints, higher realty prices and increasing operating costs. This is causing service providers to evaluate alternate low-cost locations such as Malaysia, India and China for further expansion in the region. Analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.ipcommunications.frost.com), Asia- Pacific Data Center Services Market 2010, finds that the market earned revenues of over US$2.55 billion and US$3.03 billion in 2010 and 2011 respectively. This is estimated to reach US$9.25 billion in 2017. "Most data centers are working at high utilization levels and service providers are hard pressed to identify the right locations for new data center build outs that provide the required infrastructure, at a sustainable price," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Mayank Kapoor. "Market participants are adopting virtualization, consolidation and cloud computing to alleviate some of these cost pressures." Further, the growing adoption of high-density blade servers is resulting in escalating power and cooling requirements.

SINGAPORE, July 10, 2012
- Asia Pacific market experiences renewed demand as organizations
seek cost effective ways to meet increasing data center requirements
SINGAPORE
,
July 10, 2012
/PRNewswire/ -- The traditional data center hubs of
Hong Kong
and
Singapore
are being confronted with several operational
hurdles such as space restraints, higher realty prices and increasing operating
costs. This is causing service providers to evaluate alternate low-cost locations
such as
Malaysia
,
India
and
China
for further expansion in the region.
Analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.ipcommunications.frost.com),
Asia-
Pacific Data Center Services Market 2010
, finds that the market earned
revenues of over
US$2.55 billion
and
US$3.03 billion
in 2010 and 2011
respectively. This is estimated to reach
US$9.25 billion
in 2017.
"Most data centers are working at high utilization levels and service providers
are hard pressed to identify the right locations for new data center build outs
that provide the required infrastructure, at a sustainable price," says Frost &
Sullivan Research Analyst Mayank Kapoor. "Market participants are adopting
virtualization, consolidation and cloud computing to alleviate some of these cost
pressures."
Further, the growing adoption of high-density blade servers is resulting in
escalating power and cooling requirements. The latest power and cooling
technologies will reduce the overall demand for data centre space, as they
enable better packing of efficient blade servers.
Meanwhile, renewed corporate growth in the
Asia Pacific
in 2010 has given
impetus to organizations' business expansion efforts.
"As the outlook for
North America
and
Europe
is not very promising, global
businesses are focusing their efforts on
Asia Pacific
to drive the next phase of
corporate growth," notes Kapoor. "Global service providers have identified this
as an opportunity and are beefing up their presence in the region, as an
increasing number of businesses are looking at third-party service providers to
supplement or replace their captive facilities."
Service providers are virtualizing a greater part of their servers and
incorporating Green IT best practices across facilities. Future data centers will
also have higher power densities, be carrier neutral and be built in low-cost
locations.
