Future proofing colocation
May 13, 2021 | 00.00 GMT
The colocation sector is in a hypergrowth phase in both core and edge markets to support all the customer demand for content, cloud, and network, as well as growing requirements for technologies such as ML/AI, cloud gaming, VR/AR, telemedicine, Industrial IoT, Autonomous Vehicles, and the list goes on. All of which require vast amounts of data and delivery to and from the people, the device, and the application. One of the primary challenges for colocation providers is meeting demand adequately in a timely manner. Once the current uncertainty abates, there will be massive a wave of growth to fulfil previous demand and the newly identified demands as more companies seek to address the new demands created/identified during this period.
