Factors of the market development

The most important factors of the commercial data centers development are as follows:

 

 Key factors of the commercial data centers development in Russia.

 Integration of Russian business in the global economy  International and Russian banks, insurance and investment companies are facing new, more tightening criteria for international activity regulation working with the customer base, and other work processes. This will increase the demand for professional data center services.
 Development of services which require a large amount of web traffic  The companies – owners of large-scale web projects (search engines, web portals, social networks) that generate a significant amount of traffic and have a large number of users in the future will place their equipment closer to the end user in order to reduce the costs of data transfer. These players will be interested in regional data centers.
 Development of "cloud" services  Cloud services use distributed processing technology, in which computing resources and facilities are available to the user as an online service. Currently, many data centers are expanding its range of services and, besides such classic services as colocation and dedicated, provide SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service). The demand for SaaS / PaaS / IaaS is growing, which contributes to the increase in demand for commercial data centers, including regional ones.
 Branch development of the companies  With the development of branch networks it is necessary to centralize the processing and storage of data using complex business applications, for example, ERP-and CRM-systems. Commercial data centers can be used for centralizing IT-infrastructures of the companies.
 National projects and government programs  In the future government contracts will be a stable source of demand for data centers. A series of state automated systems is promising in terms of the data centers (eg, SAS "Election"). The best chance for a state contract for data centers that are owned by state companies, such as the data center of "Rostelecom".
 Continuity of service as a competitive advantage for the companies  The use of commercial data centers will allow companies to ensure the continuity of their business due to the high reliability of commercial data center. Development of commercial data centers and regulatory framework (in the form of SLA) will allow companies to spend less time to ensure continuity of its activities.
