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. The efficiency of power systems and cooling systems are even more critical for datacenter managers. IDC's Japan Datacenter Facility and Colocation Strategies (Japanese Version with Key English Language Reports) service is focused on these critical issues in the DC facility (such as UPS, cooling, and building) and provides an in-depth analysis of end-user trends and forecasts of major markets. In 2020, more commercial datacenter-related research topics will be covered, such as the retail and wholesale colocation market.
