Cloud in the spotlight of German companies and data centers | News

According to a study by the Information Services Group (ISG), business demand for cloud computing in Germany is growing so rapidly that the required data center capacity will increase from a third of its current value to more than half by 2025, a leading global research and consultancy firm in technology field, announced today.

The 2022 ISG Provider Lens ™ Next-Gen Private / Hybrid Cloud – Data Center Services & Solutions for Germany report shows that the growing demand for the cloud is being driven by companies investing in digitization, especially to improve their resilience and agility. This trend is in line with the constantly growing market of IT and business services in Europe, which recorded an increase of 24% in the first quarter of 2022. year on year for managed services.

“The increasing use of managed services, in particular IT outsourcing and business processes, by German companies is part of the boom that can be seen in much of Western Europe,” says Alexandra Classen, EMEA Partner at ISG Infrastructure Services and Application Development and Maintenance. “.

The report concludes that the demand for colocation data centers in Germany is increasing as both user companies and managed hosting providers increasingly rely on them. One reason is that more and more companies require networks with low latency times of 35 milliseconds or less, which can be better provided by colocation facilities.

According to ISG, the widespread migration of German companies to the cloud is reflected in growing traffic volumes at the country’s network nodes and in the growing size of new data centers. The capacity of the DE-CIX node in Frankfurt, one of the largest in the world, increased from 9.1 Tb / s in 2020 to 10 Tb / s in 2021. A similar increase was recorded at the nodes in Hamburg and Munich. New data centers must have a minimum range of 5 megawatts to be profitable. Currently, there are 90 in Germany, which corresponds to half the capacity of data centers in the country.

The report shows that given the high energy demand of data centers, which consume about 3% of electricity in Germany, operators are introducing passive cooling systems that increase the energy efficiency of their facilities. The average energy efficiency (PUE) of the new data centers was 1.63 in 2020, but has since dropped to 1.3 and below – where 1 is the theoretical ideal.

The report also examines other trends in the deployment of private and hybrid clouds in Germany and beyond, including the growing importance of multicloud and multi-platform computing environments and compliance challenges.
