This IDC study analyzes the market for datacenter (DC) services provided by carriers and pure-play DC service providers in Japan. It looks at the future direction of the market based on information gathered through major suppliers and IDC user surveys. In addition, we size the businesses of 14 DC service providers and forecast the DC services market between 2015 and 2019.
The Japan carrier and DC pure-play DC services markets are growing steadily as the Cloud-First policy gains momentum among user companies. "Not many companies are using hybrid cloud systems now. However, with the pursuit of cost optimization, workload-based deployment, and business risk prevention, the importance of infrastructure that integrate multiple cloud services and on-premises systems will increase. It is necessary for DC service providers to provide hybrid solutions that combine such technologies with the value they offer," says Yoko Ono, senior market analyst, Communications, IDC Japan.
