This IDC study, which was translated from the Japanese report IDC #J11250102 forecasts the Japan datacenter outsourcing market from 2010 to 2015 by segment (collocation, dedicated hosting, and shared hosting) based on data gathered as of June 2011. It also presents the business profiles of eight major players in the market and the results of a user survey conducted by IDC in June 2011.
The Japan datacenter outsourcing market in 2010 marked a low growth rate due to lingering impact from the recession of 2009. With the impact of the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake proving mild, IDC forecasts that the market will have a higher growth rate in 2011, due to an improving economic climate and the rapidly growing use of hosting services by Internet businesses. "In the Japan market that is poised for an eventual recovery, datacenter providers should focus on capturing needs to strengthen business continuity/disaster recovery; the division of roles and strengthening the link between urban and rural datacenters; and raising awareness of datacenters as social infrastructure," says Mimei Ito, research manager, IT Services, IDC Japan.
