Serial tech entrepreneur and Cloudscene’s founder, Bevan Slattery said: “We’ve taken independent industry data from the world’s largest database of colocation facilities and service providers, to provide a ranking of the data center operators with the most influence in their region.

“Whilst we expect the movement to be minimal in the top half of the leaderboard each quarter, what will be interesting to follow is the change in the second half rankings where you can see competition is rife. The scores are extremely tight and you can really get a feel for how fierce the market must be between the medium-sized players.”

Q2 changes also resulted in six new entrants, with Cyxtera, Netrality Properties, itconic, ST Telemedia, Macquarie Telecom and YourDC joining the leaderboard rankings.

Based on data center market density (number of facilities) and connectivity (PoPs), the leaderboard scores are obtained from Cloudscene’s independent global database and relate to the April to June 2017 period.

The spread of connectivity for Q2, 2017 was centralized to North America and EMEA. Of the total 17,000+ PoPs managed by the ranked data center operators, 43.10% of the PoPs were in North America, 39.63% in EMEA, 9.15% in Oceania and 8.11% in Asia.
