The global mega data center market is expected to show substantial growth over the forecast period, on account of rising demand for data storage owing to the growing amount of data traffic. Increasing business needs have pushed the demand for expansion of data storage capacity. Mega data centers offer high storage capacity, bandwidth, computing capacity and facilitate large scale data transfer. They are operationally cost-effective, reliable, scalable and an efficient solution for meeting the demands of large scale data storage. Companies such as Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, etc. have enormous data storage requirements and prefer to operate gigantic mega data centers to meet their storage needs.
The global mega data center market is driven by the need for data center consolidation and cost benefits associated with them. Rather than having several data centers that may or may not be in the same location, it is easier and more cost-effective to operate a single mega data center. The growing usage of cloud services for data storage is also expected to drive the market over the next six years. Mega data centers require huge investment and approval from government authorities. Also, there are high chances of error multiplication when using such data storage mechanism. These factors are expected to restraint market growth over the forecast period. However, new infrastructure solutions and the availability of co-location centers are expected to serve as key opportunities for the market’s growth.
