What is a data Centre provider? Data center companies can also be referred to as colocation companies, and these companies build and operate data centers, providing a highly secure space with redundant power, cooling and network infrastructure for those who find it more affordable and/or more reliable than operating their own data centers.
What are the four main types of data centers?
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.
