Big Data and IoT a Boon for the Market
Emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), increased spending on cloud data center, need for colocation and managed service data centers, and growing usage of big data analytics are some of the key factors driving the global datacenter deployment spending market. The report observes that several cloud service providers are constructing cloud data centers in order to offer cloud-based services to end-users of all kind. Small and medium enterprises are inclining towards cloud data centers as it offers striking benefits such as reliability, scalability, and overall reduction in cost of repeated processes.

In the recent times, major cloud providers have started shifting from third party datacenter facilities to leased processes. For example, Microsoft and IBM have collaborated with 21Vianet, a Chinese datacenter provider, to cater to Asia Pacific market. A number of businesses are now using consumer based applications that are generating large amounts of structured and unstructured data. Big data comes in very hand for this high volume of data in order to help the organizations of understand their business and make decisions based on them. Big data facilitates faster analysis and increases the efficiency of computing resources. The report also attributes the prosperity of the global data center deployment spending market to the growing usage of RFID sensors to track, tag, connect, and read objects in warehouses and logistics to popularize the concept of IoT. With ever increasing number of smart devices, the ideas such as connected home, connected cars, healthcare, and smart cities are seeing the light of the day.
