As far as the data center realm is concerned, 2010 will be a great year. According to a recent survey conducted by Digital Realty Trust, nearly one-third of corporate data centers will expand this year. In addition, more than 80% of all data centers plan on expanding within the next two years.
Much of the facility expansion is due to a need for more power, not space. Many companies have had to halt their data center expansions due to a lack of credit. Hopefully the economy will continue to improve this year and firms will have less trouble getting investment and loans for data center space. Regardless of what happens, it still looks like 2010 will be all about the data center.
