The role of the data center, in view of the potential for business development, is fundamental. The challenges: security, service delivery, compliance, and privacy.
The value of investments in data centers globally last year is more than doubled. The total number of data center transactions increased by 64% over the same period. The extraordinary growth is expected to continue this year as well. 45% of developers, 56% of debt providers, and 67% of equity investors plan to invest in four or more data center projects in the next 24 months. Record demand for data centers is driven by the growth of hyper scalers, such as Facebook, Google, and Microsoft, which have thrived on the shift to cloud services, which has in turn been intensified by the pandemic.
