Datacentre index January 2012.gif

A survey of 900 IT professionals by Oracle suggests that businesses have been caught unaware by the scale

of data they collect driven by machine-to-machine communications, smartphones, the Smart Grid and

on-demand home entertainment.

As a result, the demand for data centres will grow in 2012. According to this survey, nearly 40% of organisations say they will need a new data centre within 2 years. Some 56% favour an external datacentre, while 44% plan internal datacentres.
