A new report by Tariff Consultancy Ltd (TCL), based on a survey of Data Centre Pricing across 19 European countries, suggests that the market for housing services will continue to see vibrant growth in pricing, raised floor space and revenue for the foreseeable future.
Called Data Centre Pricing 2010 to 2015, the report provides Data Centre pricing and forecasts for 19 of the EU25 countries, and analyses pricing of a standard 19" rack, a small cage space and a 50 KVA suite of space for each of the countries.
TCL also provides current industrial electricity pricing in the countries as it is an increasingly major component of operational Data Centre costs, and also a forecast of raised floor Data Centre space and revenue per country over the five year period from the end of 2010 to 2015.
From the report a number of trends are apparent which are impacting all Data Centre operators in Europe. They include:
Data Centre operators are reporting stable pricing conditions, with price rises being attained in spite the economic slowdown. Although rates for large customers requiring dedicated cage space and suites remain competitive, there is a general increase in price levels which reflects the increased demand for housing, hosting and co location space.
"We believe that the future outlook for the Data Centre operator remains sound," says Margrit Sessions, Managing Director of TCL. "In general the demand for new space from the telecoms operator, the ISP, the content provider and systems integrator as well as the enterprise will allow Data Centre pricing to increase over time. Raised floor space will increase with new build facilities and the expansion of existing ones. Also operators are increasing the efficiency of their current floor space to allow the deployment of more dense applications."
