raised floor space is forecast to increase by 28% on average

Tariff Consultancy Ltd (TCL) finds that Data Centre revenue in 23 European countries is forecast to rise by 53% over the 5 year period to the end of 2016, with findings to be published in its new report called Data Centre Pricing in Europe 2011.

The new report provides a bottom up analysis of 23 of the key Data Centre country markets across Europe with details of key Data Centre players, raised floor space, rack space rental, revenue per square metre and Data Centre revenues being analysed.
From the Data Centre Pricing in Europe 2011 report TCL finds the following main trends impacting the European Data Centre which includes:

• New Data Centre raised floor space is being added at a rate of 15,000 square metres per month across the 23 country survey

• Data Centre utilisation rates are set to fluctuate - with new space introduction lowering average rates in the short term but is set to increase over time

• Data Centre pricing is now increasingly based on power - which is still being bundled with rack space, with different pricing models being pursued, such as metered power

• Data Centre pricing is also increasing over time - with a 16% increase in average rack space pricing over the 5 year period to the end of 2016, and revenue per square metre set to increase by 22% over the same period

• In selected markets the Data Centre market is segmenting into different uses - with City-based facilities specialising in high density applications and wholesale providers specialising in large-scale applications

• The expansion in Data Centre markets remains focussed on the established markets - in the UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland. But developing Data Centre markets – such as Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia – see faster overall revenue and pricing growth but from a low base.

• Over the 5 year period to the end of 2016 Data Centre " raised floor space is forecast to increase by 28% on average "

• Standard 19” rack space pricing is forecast to increase by 16% on average over the same period

• And Data Centre revenues per square metre is forecast to increase by 22% on average over the same period

“The Data Centre market throughout Europe is undergoing steady and continuous growth,” says Margrit Sessions, Managing Director of TCL. “The UK, Germany and France remain the largest markets in Europe, with Data Centres being expanded to cater for new high density applications with increased power. Pricing is a key component for the Data Centre operator to differentiate and to attract new customers. In the short term, Data Centres established outside of the city centre have to discount their services when compared with the Data Centre located in the Data Centre.”
