(The Hosting News) – Data center provider Digital Realty Trust last Thursday unveiled some interesting statistics pertaining to the European data center market.
It was a survey asking senior leadership what their plans were for future.
The results showed that 88% planned data center expansions either during the course of this year or the next.
“The main reasons given for data centre expansion are, in order of importance, the need for security, disaster recovery, and power issues (the supply/reliability of power, and maintaining efficiency),” stated the company via a press release.
Meanwhile, Digital Realty signaled that data center demand was largest with businesses in the United Kingdom.
