What is a data center company? A data center is a facility that centralizes an organization’s shared IT operations and equipment for the purposes of storing, processing, and disseminating data and applications. Because they house an organization’s most critical and proprietary assets, data centers are vital to the continuity of daily operations.
Which companies own the most data centers? Amazon, Microsoft and Google collectively now account for more than 50 percent of the world’s largest data centers across the globe as the three companies continue to spend billions each year on building and expanding their global data center footprint to accommodate the high demand for cloud services.
Which companies own their own data centers? Cloud provider giants like Amazon, Microsoft, and Google need physical data centers to provide their services. While they own their own data centers around the globe and lead the charge in building new data centers, they also lease roughly 70% of their data center footprint from data centers owned by other companies.
