The supply side of the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) datacenter market is undergoing a fundamental shift with significant amounts of funding already being committed to the building or upgrading of facilities — over $2 billion in 2011 alone with more expected in the next 12–36 months. However, much of this investment has occurred without a truly quantitative assessment of the existing status of the local supply and demand picture. This research will take a multipronged analytical approach to provide the most comprehensive view of the supply side of the ANZ datacenter market (predominantly colocation services but also including managed, hosting, and cloud services). The research will include analyst interviews with supply-side datacenter service providers in ANZ and a survey of end-user organizations (SMB and enterprise).
