Data centres are supposedly stuck in the past and only suitable for big corporations with a lot of money to spare.

According to a report published in April by 451 Research – which monitors 4,800 data centres annually – the data centre colocation market will be worth $33.2 billion around £25 billion, AU$44 billion worldwide by 2018.

In the first quarter of last year, it made $27 billion around £21 billion, AU$35 billion globally.

A number of questions need to be answered here.

And from a business perspective, what are the benefits for firms, especially SMEs?

Usually, a colocation data centre will offer facilities such as power, cooling, space and security for server, networking and storage equipment.
