DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4snd6k/the_uk_public) has announced the addition of the "The UK Public Sector Market for Data Center Facilities and Services" report to their offering.
The United Kingdom is the third largest datacenter market in the world, behind the United States and Japan and marginally ahead of Germany. The picture that emerges from the 2012 DatacenterDynamics Census confirms the 2011 view of the UK as a datacenter market of global importance and with the key attributes of an established datacenter market - a large datacenter infrastructure, lower rates of growth than smaller and emerging datacenter markets but considerable and active investment.
The datacenter facility profile indicates:
- A high proportion (almost 40%) of organisations with portfolios over 5000 square meters.
- Total datacenter space in the UK is just under 3 million square metres with another 750,000 square metres, outsourced.
- Total datacenter racks in the UK number 1,070,000. Of these, 190,000 are outsourced.
- Total datacenter power requirement in the UK is 2.85 GW of which 650 MW is outsourced.
- The sectors of the economy that account for the largest proportion of the UK datacenter asset base include ICT services, finance, public administration, telecoms and collocation. As in other developed datacenter markets sectorial growth is represented by smaller sectors such as healthcare, media and the industrial, manufacturing, primary sector as the profile of datacenter operation moves closer to the overall economic profile of the UK.
It is forecast that there will however be steady single digit growth in terms of both space and racks to 2016. Power requirements have and will increase more sharply. The main impact on growth levels in the physical datacenter environment will be the impact of outsourcing, cloud and virtualisation developments and of more efficient design methodologies. Monitoring Behaviour The datacenter parameters that are most commonly monitored on a continuous basis are those that protect the IT environment - temperature and humidity. Over 90% monitor these parameters on a continuous basis.
