This IDC study provides our annual summary of data from IDC's semiannual Worldwide and U.S. Datacenter Census. It provides a census of worldwide datacenters by size, sophistication, and ownership. It assesses the short-term, midterm, and long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and changing industry business models on datacenter design, construction, and management. Succeeding in today's stressed business environment requires new approaches to deploying and operating resilient IT resources in critical locations, and this will shape enterprises' and service providers' plans for new datacenter investments.
"As organizations move from reacting to the COVID-19 crisis to remediating the IT strategies to ensure this never happens again, more enterprises will rely more on colocation and cloud service providers as well as equipping their remaining core/edge datacenters with smart facilities systems and flex consumption/local cloud–as-a-service infrastructure solutions," says Richard Villars, group vice president, Worldwide Research.
