IDC Canada Evaluates Canadian Data Centre Operations and Management Vendors in
New IDC MarketScape
- September 30, 2016 -
Toronto ON., - International Data Corporation (IDC) Canada announced today the release of a new report assessing data centre operations vendors in Canada. IDC MarketScape: Canadian Data Centre Operations and Management 2016 Vendor Assessment, assesses Canadian data centre providers' ability to help Canadian companies migrate from corporate-run, on-premise facilities to 3rd party centres and hybrid environments, in addition to a vendor's facility features.
IDC research shows that companies have little appetite for investing in their own new and existing data centre facilities, as there are currently less corporate-run data centres than there were in 2014, and floor space has shrunk by 7.5%. Technology leaders have decided that instead of continuing to throw good money at their own facilities, they are beginning to shift workloads to commercial hosting vendors that offer colocation, managed hosting, and cloud services. As such, this IDC MarketScape assesses those capabilities, in addition to space, power, connectivity, and value-added services of Canadian data centre providers.
Key results of the report include:
Since 2014, IDC Canada has published four IDC MarketScape documents on the Canadian cloud-based infrastructure services market. Collectively, these reports have been groundbreaking in their detailed vendor assessment and guidance provided to business and IT leaders. They are as follows:
The latest report is published into the Canadian Strategic Sourcing and Cloud Services program, and the new Canadian Datacenter Hosting and Colocation Overview program report series at IDC. Please click on the links to find out more about these subscription research products.
