Data Center Market in GCC Report

DUBLIN, April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6xbk2t/data_center) has announced the addition of the "Data Center Market in GCC Report" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Data Center market in the GCC to grow at a CAGR of 21.9 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing outsourcing of enterprise infrastructure. The Data Center market in the GCC has also been witnessing the increasing outsourcing of data center services. However, the slow adoption of new technology in the GCC countries could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. 

The report, the Data Center Market in the GCC 2012-2016, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council; it also covers the Data Center market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

One of the major trends witnessed by enterprises in the GCC is the increase in the outsourcing of data center services and management to third-party vendors that are experts in data center management and maintenance. A number of vendors are entering the market and providing data center services at a reduced price compared to that of the internal hosting of similar services. 

These vendors provide end-to-end services to enterprises which ease their operations and enterprises are better able to concentrate on their core business activities. Data center service providers are setting up their own data center facilities with all the required support facilities such as powering and cooling solutions and are meeting all the regulatory requirements specified by the regulatory authorities.

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increasing outsourcing of enterprise infrastructure. With the increasing complexity of the network infrastructure and the need for efficient management of the network, enterprises are outsourcing the management and maintenance of the infrastructure to third-party vendors that are experts in data center management and maintenance.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the slow adoption of new technology and developments in GCC countries. Since the data center requirements of enterprises in GCC countries are limited and there is a lower awareness regarding the benefits of new technology, enterprises are resistant to making capital investments to increase the productivity of the network infrastructure.
