Structure Research Publishes Sydney + Melbourne Data Centre Report 2017

  • August 27, 2017

Newest addition to Structure Research APAC Data Centre Supply Report Series is the most comprehensive report of its kind.

TORONTO, Ontario and SINGAPORE – August 28, 2017 – Structure Research, a next-generation research firm focused on the global data centre and cloud infrastructure services industry, today announced the publication of its Sydney + Melbourne Data Centre Supply Report for 2017.

This 115-page report takes an in-depth look at the size, growth trajectory and supply and demand dynamics of the Sydney and Melbourne colocation markets – from both a space and power perspective. It includes a 5-year CAGR projection, detailed market share statistics, utilization trend graphs, leaderboards, SWOT analyses and insight and commentary. There is also a comprehensive directory of providers, operational data centres and listings of the current build pipeline.

The data and analytics presented are produced by Structure Research’s proprietary methodology that measures data centre capacity from both a space and power perspective. This is crucial because power is the truest unit of capacity in the data centre. Measuring on the basis of space alone – as some legacy research firms still do – only tells a small part of the story.

Structure Research’s methodology also distinguishes between retail and wholesale colocation. The relevant metrics – revenue, space, power, utilization and growth rates – are now identified as being retail or wholesale and presented in aggregate form and separately in these two categories.

Pricing analysis has increased in granularity as well. This report has five-year colocation pricing projections for both retail and wholesale colocation.

‘The Sydney and Melbourne markets reflect many of the shifts underway in the data centre colocation market in Asia and around the globe,’ stated Jabez Tan, lead author of the report and Research Director for Structure Research. ‘Data sovereignty and performance requirements are driving the need for local infrastructure and increased power density. And the massive-scale clouds – landing and expanding in Australia – are working hard to make this happen. As result, the Sydney and Melbourne markets, in similar fashion to Hong Kong, are shifting more towards wholesale, with a significant delta between current space and power utilization rates’.

This is the third and latest data centre supply report series published by Structure Research. We have published a Singapore and Hong Kong Data Centre Supply Report with annual updates. Sydney + Melbourne adds another primary Asia-pacific market to the collection.

‘This report is literally and figuratively one of a kind. It is the bible of the Sydney and Melbourne colocation markets and reinforces our position as the default research option for data and intelligence on leading Asia-pacific markets,’ stated Philbert Shih, Managing Director of Structure Research. ‘Service providers, investors and enterprise end users need to read this report for a true understanding of the market’.
