Why Read This Report

As technology demand accelerates to support the digital business, data centers are running low on physical resource capacity. When provisioning new data center capacity, infrastructure and operations (I&O) pros must decide whether to build a new facility or look to third-party services to expand. For most regions in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, high-quality colocation, managed, hosted, and cloud services are readily available, expanding the service options. This report helps I&O pros understand the economic elements of the decision to build the business case for new capacity. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
