NEW YORK, July11 — Uptime Institute, a division of The 451 Group, today announced the complete results of its second annual data center industry survey. The survey was developed to collect data on an annual basis around Digital Infrastructure deployment trends, procurement plans, measurement and standards practices, and other topics that impact the mission-critical data center industry.
"Among many interesting upward trends, we continue to see an increase in data center budgets, which is a pleasant surprise as many budgets in the IT sector are on the decline," said Matt Stansberry, Uptime Institute Director of Content and Publications. "Our survey, which has already piqued industry recognition in its early stages, is a true picture of where the industry is headed as our sample base represents many of the top data center owners and operators across the globe."
Key findings of the survey include:
Uptime Institute's complete survey report drills down on many of the data points, carving out segments by company size, geography and vertical industry. It includes Uptime Institute's expert analysis on Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) adoption, equipment manufacturer market share, energy saving strategies for data center operators, and much more. Complimentary access to the full report is available for download with registration: http://uptimeinstitute.com/2012-survey-results.
The 2012 survey represents responses from more than 2,000 owners, operators, vendors, consultants and users from around the world. The survey report focuses on the 1,100 owners and operators from this pool. Respondents were largely represented by the financial industry, technology service providers, manufacturing and government agencies. Over 75% manage more than one data center, with North America being the best-represented region.
