This IDC study analyzes the datacenter opex in Japan based on labor, facility management, and power costs. We establish 12 DC models based on size and standard; and estimate the opex costs of the respective models.
We foresee a rise in the opex of commercial datacenters (cDCs). "To provide competitive DC services to customers, cDCs will have to find ways to reduce opex costs while maintaining advanced facility standards," says Mimei Ito, research manager, IT services, IDC Japan.
