IDC MarketScape: Canadian Datacenter Colocation and Interconnection Services 2022 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of the Canadian datacenter colocation and interconnection services market through the IDC MarketScape model. It covers a variety of vendors including global and Canada-based firms. The research is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of many characteristics that buyers consider when selecting a datacenter colocation provider. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive set of parameters important to meeting the customer's current and future needs for digital infrastructure involving datacenter colocation. This IDC MarketScape covers 11 vendors participating in the Canadian datacenter colocation and interconnection services market.
"Many Canadian organizations continue to expand their use and spending on colocation and interconnection services as datacenters have evolved to become critical elements of digital infrastructure," according to Jason Bremner, research vice president, Industry and Business Solutions at IDC. "The cost to maintain and expand a high-quality datacenter to meet the needs of today's digital business operations continues to grow. As such, we see organizations weighing buy versus build decisions more. Factors shaping those decisions are changing and buyers should carefully consider which provider best fits their needs."
