Why Read This Report

Forrester believes that the explosive growth of emerging data center services like as-a-service and virtual private cloud services over the next three to five years will spark increased demand from small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) and government agencies across China. However, demand for traditional services like colocation and hosting will remain the most significant portion of the data center services market in China, driven by financial services firms and surging Internet businesses like online video and gaming. Currently, gaps exist between providers' capabilities and market demand. But over the next three to four years, the redevelopment of data centers, the increased availability of service catalogs, and the adoption of new technologies will close these gaps. This report provides vendor strategists with a detailed view of the Chinese market for data center services and insight into the key professional services and technology capabilities that service providers will need to have to meet rapidly changing market demand.
