DCD>Debate: FLAP-D - Nearing the end of its reign or just getting started?
The EMEA data center market continues to grow at pace, with predicted growth of almost 15% and a forecast take-up of 440 MW for this year. With supply looking set to meet and potentially exceed this, the market remains healthy and robust, but with changes in the source of customer demand, ongoing power capacity issues, and significant shifts in data center design, is it now time to change our geographical focus?
This expert-led debate will discuss the factors shaping the future of the EMEA market, and what this means for site selection and ultimately data center design and build. Which new big city European hotspots and emerging markets are biting at the heels of the FLAP-D regions, and what opportunities and challenges do they present? If the traditional gap between tier one and two markets is now closing, what will the EMEA data center market map look like in the years to come?
Held under Chatham House Rule, DCD>Debates are open discussions led by a panel of experts, on the biggest issues to face the industry.
