Data centre demand in Qatar set to surge 20%: IDC.

The data centre market in Qatar is poised for significant growth over the coming years, with IDC forecasting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20% between 2012 and 2017.

Demand for business continuity and disaster recovery,

together with growing computational and storage needs, is spurring this growth

in data centre services, the research company said. At the same time,

increasing customer interest in cloud services is also driving demand for data


IDC today hosted a roadshow, showcasing key aspects of data

centre technologies, at Grand Hyatt Doha. The event featured industry players

and decision makers that play significant roles in formulating IT strategy. It

covered overall adoption trends and dynamics; economics and cost optimisation;

management; capacity planning; business continuity; and implementation


"There is a shift in mind-set currently underway, with

customers increasingly utilising third-party data centre providers for their

hosting requirements in a bid to avoid making large capital investments,"

said Adriana Rangel, research director for systems and infrastructure solutions

at IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa.

"In order to capitalise on the increasing demand for

hosting services, Qatar has seen a surge in investments in the data centre

space, as providers aim to offer new and innovative services to their customers

while maintaining high-quality and strong service delivery capabilities based

on international standards."
