Data Center Transformation Market Analysis

Data center transformation market is expected to register a CAGR of 18% over the forecast period.

  • Data center providers across the globe are gradually moving towards data center transformation in order to increase overall efficiency whilst reducing operational costs. Owing to the rapidly rising adoption of cloud, Ineternet of Things (IoT), and big data analytics across various enterprises as a part of their digital transformation strategy, the burden on the data centers is also increasing, leading to the growth in the data centers globally.
  • Moreover, data center traffic across the world is also increasing, considering the number of increasing communicating devices and more enterprises switching to software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based applications, as forecasted by Cisco, which will also drive the market.
  • With the increasing reliability and the increase in the number of data centers around the world, data center providers are finding it difficult to maintain consistency and operational efficiency.
  • Energy efficiency considerations are also gaining importance among data centers since energy accounts for almost 40% of total costs (according to network strategy and technology company Ciena). Infrastructure management, as a part of the data center transformation, is expected to gain traction over the years, considering the attempt to increase energy efficiency as a cost-saving measure.
  • COVID-19 impacted the data center construction in the market examined, as it has caused the construction of several new facilities to be delayed. Building from businesses and colocation service providers has come to a halt. Project pipelines with opportunities between Q4 2020 and Q1 2021 were significantly impacted. Datacenter infrastructure-related supply chain problems were blamed for the same. The situation deteriorated with problematic imports already in place, as many vendors rely on imports of IT, electricity, and cooling infrastructure solutions.

Data Center Transformation Industry Segmentation

The process of changing a data center in order to enhance its general functionality and performance is known as data center transformation. Some experts define and characterize data center transformation as large-scale change programs that affect many important aspects of data center use, such as hardware configurations, users, and business processes.

The data center transformation market is segmented by service (consolidation, automation, optimization, infrastructure management), level of the data center (tier 1, tier 2, tier 3, Tier 4), end user (data center providers, enterprises-BFSI, IT and telecom, retail, healthcare, manufacturing, aerospace, defense, and intelligence, and other end-users), and geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa).

Data Center Transformation Market Trends

Data Center Consolidation Service are Expected to Grow at a Significant Rate

  • Data center consolidation is the service organizations provide that plans to reduce the size of a single center or merge one or more centers to reduce the overall operating costs and the IT footprint.
  • Data center consolidation services offered by vendors in the market allow enterprises to control their data center assets better and more efficiently. The solutions the vendors provide for the data centers are consolidating physical locations, consolidating software into less hardware, etc..
  • Consolidation can lower the required equipment, such as servers, storage, and networking equipment, due to CAPEX efficiency. This saves the company a lot of money on purchases. Data centers are well known for being substantial energy consumers and significant contributors to global warming. Consolidating data centers uses less energy overall, significantly lowering the organization's carbon impact.
  • Increasing awareness of the data center transformation with respect to consolidating the physical locations has been evident in recent times. According to the Data Center Alliance, 62% of data centers are making consolidation efforts.
  • With the increasing data center IP traffic globally, there is a need to consolidate the data centers to reduce cost and improve functionality, which is one of the primary reasons for boosting the growth of the data center transformation market.

North America Occupies the Largest Market Share

  • The North American region holds the largest market share of the global cloud and internet data centers, according to China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC). This high share can also be because many major players are headquartered in this region.
  • North America also contributes substantially to the global data center demand from various end-user industries such as IT, BFSI, retail, and healthcare.
  • The Federal government's Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) primarily aims to encourage data center players to consolidate the inefficient infrastructure, optimize existing facilities, achieve cost savings, and transition to a more efficient infrastructure.
  • Due to the increased focus on dependability and sustainability, data center owners and operators must investigate cutting-edge technologies like fuel-cell energy storage. Older assets that might be deemed unsuitable for modern colocation are receiving new opportunities thanks to cryptocurrency mining, a comparatively recent source of demand.
  • To generalize the statement, through this initiative, the government intends to reduce the costs of physical data centers by a minimum of 25% by the end of the fiscal year. The dominance of this region in the market, combined with the increasing need to reduce operational costs, provides scope for adopting data center transformation solutions, hence driving the market.
