The 4th edition of Data Centre Middle East reports the key change in cloud services, with public revenues to double
Datacentrepricing owned by Tariff Consultancy Ltd (TCL) has launched the fourth edition of the Data Centre Middle East report entitled ‘Moving into the Future - Cloud and Data Centre Growth in the Middle East Region’.
This new report provides a unique survey of the 70 Data Centre Facilities located in the GCC countries Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE that are offered by the just under 30 Data Centre Providers. The UAE and Saudi Arabia are the leaders in number of data centre facilities followed by Bahrain.
From the survey, DCP calculates that the region has almost 130,000 m2 of Data Centre raised floor space and over 200 MW of DCCP as of the end of 2020. New build has been announced and DCP provides forecasts for Data Centre raised floor space to grow by 25 per cent over the coming four years.
The report finds that pricing for the third-party Data Centre is broadly unchanged with providers offering competitive rates in order to attract new users. When though compared with other regions in Europe or North America, the Middle East Region Data Centre Pricing remains high, with a relatively narrow range of pricing but with a Middle East price premium. But the lack of alternative Data Centre Providers results in high average price levels.
The key change in the region over the last three years has been the growth in cloud services. The introduction of cloud services is set to transform the demand for IT services in the Middle East which can now be supplied on a pay as you go basis without the need for a high initial capital investment. DCP forecasts that public cloud revenues will almost double over the four-year period from the beginning of 2020.
