Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The Global Data Center Rack market has been witnessing increasing demand for taller rack systems. The international standard for rack systems is shifting to taller systems as they facilitate utilization of data center floor space and also provide better cooling for data center components. Enterprises are also acquiring more space for additional cabling and attachment of other computing peripherals. The standard for data center racks is changing from 42U to 48U or 51U racks, reflecting the tendency of enterprises to add more computing equipment into their existing computing floor space. ”
According to the report, in addition to the increasing number of data centers, increased content digitalization and the need for additional computing and storage infrastructure have led to the establishment of new data centers the world over. Data centers are equipped with computing equipment and supporting peripherals that are mounted on racks; the increased use of computer equipment leads to high demand for data center rack solutions.
Further, the report states that the increasing virtualization and server consolidation process is one of the major challenges. The growing adoption of virtualized computing equipment and services is reducing the demand for server hardware and solutions, which directly affects the demand for rack solutions.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
