Japan Datacenter Facility and Colocation Strategies (Japanese Version with Key English Language Reports)

As the cloud market expands, so does investment in new builds of commercial datacenters (DCs). In enterprise datacenters, the market sees more projects to decommission and integrate existing facilities, as enterprise IT assets are being moved to the cloud environment.

In 2021, the analysis of hosting infrastructure services (defined as datacenter services) is given more granular decompositions.
