香港 – 2014年5月13日 – 根據Digital Realty Trust, Inc.(NYSE:DLR)委託Forrester Consulting進行的調查顯示,關鍵應用程式虛擬化、海量數據以及數據中心合併將在亞太地區推動新一輪數據中心容量的增長。

是項Digital Realty 2014年亞太地區數據中心趨勢調查訪問了新加坡、香港、日本以及澳洲的數據中心決策人士。

結合四個國家的調查數據顯示,最受關注的數據中心容量增長驅動因素分別為虛擬化(47%)、海量數據(46%)以及數據中心合併(41%)。其次為業務增長(39%)、業務持續性(34%)以及存儲增長(32%)。


各國主要數據中心增長驅動因素:

  • 香港:數據中心合併;以及與海量數據相關的科技投資
  • 澳洲:與海量數據相關的科技投資;虛擬化;以及數據中心合併
  • 新加坡:與海量數據相關的科技投資;以及虛擬化
  • 日本:數據中心合併;虛擬化;以及存儲增長

Digital Realty 高級副總裁兼亞太區域總監Kris Kumar表示:「該調查有助於我們更好了解亞太地區客戶的重點業務需求,為其交付量身定做的數據中心策略,成為其有價值的合作夥伴和深受信賴的資訊顧問。IT轉型項目例如虛擬化以及海量數據成為驅動跨界數據中心快速增長的主要因素。我們認為這顯示出此類機構在有關其數據中心計劃及預算方面已經較為成熟。」

關鍵考慮因素:彈性以及位置安全性

受訪者在制定新的亞太地區數據中心設施投資決策時最重要的考慮因素是數據中心選址及其彈性。被受訪者評為「重要」或「非常重要」的因素包括選址風險狀況(78%)、彈性水平和設施可用性(77%)以及設施可控制水平(75%)。同時,亞太地區企業亦將優先考慮數據中心網絡連接性設置以及載體可用性和密度,75%的受訪者將此作為優先考慮因素。


有力的擴張計劃

約半成受訪者表示其數據中心預算將在未來12個月增長5% – 10%,而近六成澳洲和新加坡受訪者預計其數據中心開支將增長5% – 10%。另外11%的受訪者計劃在未來12個月增加超過10%的數據中心設施投資。關於未來數據中心容量計劃,60%受訪者表示在未來四年內將計劃不同形式的擴張。亦有受訪者將外判(40%)以及主機託管或其他數據中心租用(31%)作為其優先的託管模式以實施其擴張計劃。
