New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, South African Data Centre Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $305.8 million in 2013 and estimates this to reach $521.7 million in 2018. It covers data centre services such as co-location, managed hosting, hosted security, Web and application hosting as well as cloud-based services. Enterprises are realising that it is critical to change their approach to conducting business and adopt new elements such as on-demand bandwidth, storage facilities, high-speed Internet and network security. However, South Africa lacks skilled manpower that can manage and maintain advanced data centre technology.
