451 Research has long argued that a hybrid datacenter strategy would be the most likely path taken by the majority of enterprises, which our latest global datacenter growth forecasts bear out. Depending on geography, we anticipate varying pockets of growth – as well as consolidation – for enterprise datacenters. While demand for enterprise datacenters is patchy, it is solid for public cloud and the colocation space. We forecast the latter to grow at an 8% square footage CAGR through 2020; beyond that it is highly likely that this pace will increase. The net sum is a datacenter market that is expected to continue to grow as a whole at a steady 5% CAGR from 2015 to 2020 (based on square footage), according to our latest 451 Research Datacenter Monitor Q3 2016 forecasts.
