Data centre market in Poland 2017 Market analysis and development forecasts for 2017-2022

Data centre market in Poland 2017

Market analysis and development forecasts for 2017-2022

The report analyses the data centre market in Poland, mainly based on the results of a direct audit conducted in more than 20 leading data centres in Poland. Apart from the central part containing detailed profiles of 30 largest commercial data centre providers, the report includes an overview of the key market trends and the types of services offered by providers. The report shows the scale of investment made by the service providers in the period 2006-2016, as well as their plans for modernisation of existing data centres and construction of new facilities in the years 2017-2022. The price levels and changes in this area for 2012-2016 are analysed, together with a demand for services and the portfolio of customers using data centre services in Poland. The report presents market development forecasts in the short (1-2 years), medium (3-4 years) and long term (5-6 years). A separate chapter of the report is devoted to the simulations of changes in energy prices for industrial customers in Poland (the major cost factor for operating data centres) depending on the assumed macroeconomic factors and regulatory issues.

 

The 3-in-1 report includes two additional tools, namely the Executive Summary in the form of a PowerPoint presentation with charts/graphics - ready material for presenting data and conclusions during key strategic meetings at your company as well as the Database of report stats (an Excel file) containing the most important statistics from the report so that you can analyse/aggregate the data on your own – a tool that is particularly useful for Analysts.

When gathering information and confirming the data for the report, and in order to better understand the situation on the data centre market in Poland, we visited a total of more than 20 leading data centres in the country, located in Katowice, Krakow (and Skawina near Krakow), Lodz, Poznan, Torun, Warsaw and Wroclaw. The following data centres were among the facilities visited by us: 3S, Atman, Beyond.pl, Comarch, Data Techno Park, Euro-Centrum, Exea, GTS, HP Polska, IBM Polska, Inea, Linxdatacenter, Netia, Onet, Orange Polska, Polcom, T-Mobile Polska, Talex, Equinix Telecity, Thinx Poland, Wasko (COIG). We had an opportunity to conduct face-to-face, on-site interviews with technical and marketing directors, as well as the management of companies offering data centre services. In addition, we had conversations with other providers present on the Polish data centre market, including BCC, CK ZETO, Hector, MNI Telecom, Sprint, Technopark Pomerania. We also visited a dozen smaller server rooms and we contacted several dozens of other companies providing space for co-location and hosting in Poland.

Owing to the visits and meetings, we have achieved an objective picture of the market and the actual condition of the infrastructure in data centres in Poland. We also learnt about the development plans of the operators in the coming years.

Market commentary by expert

"Our forecasts of the Polish data centre market are coming true. An increase in the net area for sale, as well as the value of the market seem to grow at the expected level. The interest in the Polish market from both investors and intermediaries result from a steady increase in the area allocated for co-location, references obtained by the providers, and a growth in the number of agreements between Polish data centre operators and large customers, including foreign companies. We believe that the growth in demand for data centre services will be connected with an increase in the amount of processed data and the extension of the providers’ offer in the area of cloud computing and as a service model using data centre services. A search for high standards in the area of ICT security and comprehensive services in this area, as well as more advanced managed services or ICT outsourcing will positively affect the data centre market. Disaster recovery services are still an important segment of the market.

The majority of operators already have such services in their offer, providing both disaster recovery data centres and office space. In our view, this trend will be even more visible in the market, especially that a growing demand for such services is reported by large institutions.  Additionally, in the long term the perspective for the entire data centre market is favourable. The international benchmarks indicate an increasing migration to the commercial data centres in the area of co-location, hosting and cloud services. In Poland, this trend is also visible, although the scale of changes is still at a much lower level."
