Description

“COVID-19 has had major short-term, and will have significant medium- and long-term, impacts on society and the way everyone works. However, the impact on the creation and analysis of data is more one of location rather than volume and so demand for data centres is only positively affected. The scalable, pay-as-you-go model of colocation data centres is enhanced as a result of economic uncertainty prevailing from COVID-19 and Brexit. Edge computing is now developing alongside the cloud and the growth of data from 5G and the Internet of Things will further drive growth.”

– Terry Leggett, Senior B2B Analyst 

This Report will cover the following areas -

  • How the market growth has been stimulated by the wider economic uncertainties surrounding both Brexit and COVID-19
  • How edge computing will further expand the demand for data centres, supported by the ongoing rise of cloud computing
  • Why 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) will continue to drive the exponential growth of data generation and analysis
  • Why the sector commands strong earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) and therefore is a highly attractive investment to third-party financial operators
