The Americas data center market is witnessing substantial and widespread growth. Traditionally, most of the facilities that came up in the various countries in the Americas were restricted to the urban areas like New York, Ashburn, Dallas, Silicon Valley, Toronto, Montreal and Sao Paulo. The demand for edge data center is also growing the need for rapid deployment data centers namely, modular, containerized and pod facilities
The market analysts in the Data Center Market Analysis team, during their study on the data center market in Americas, observed a paradigm shift in the investing location that are selected by the facilities operators, service providers, and investors. A majority of the investment will be concentrated highly on the edge data center market, with unexpected demand from both existing and new data center customers. The vendors are looking for areas that help improve the connectivity and drive the demand for innovative data center cooling systems and data center power infrastructure in the American market.
Although the traditional facilities locations are experiencing substantial investments and more new facilities are expected to open in these locations over the next few years, analysts in the DCMA foresee a substantial investment in edge data center in rural areas.
The primary factor propelling the growth of the deployment of colocation and modular facilities outside the traditional urban locations, also referred to as the edge data center, is the growth of connected devices across business and consumer segments that has led to the requirement for more bandwidth in areas beyond urban Americas. The development of smart cities is also triggering the growth of edge data center facilities, closer to customer locations.
vXchnge, EdgeConneX, and 365 Data Centers are some of the leading edge data center operators in the Americas, who are focusing their investment and operational strategies on setting up and running edge facilities in the American market. EdgeConnex, on the other hand, is expanding its presence in Chile and Argentina with investments in edge data center.
The growing prevalence of edge facilities, foresee the analysts in the DCMA team, is going to propel more substantial growth of performance optimized data center (POD) facilities across the Americas as compared to traditional facilities. This will also benefit various leading operators that operate facilities in high demand locations and in those where the demand is growing faster than expected in the American market.
