Top Impacting Factors

Increase in Adoption Cloud-based Solutions  

The design of apps became so simple with the advent of web-based applications that hosting many apps on a single server became simple. Performance was not significantly affected during this process. However, shared hosting lost its effectiveness as the percentage of subscribers and the diversity of apps increased. Businesses moved their apps to devoted VPS hosting options, however these services quickly proved unsuitable and started to fail the users. 

Owners of businesses were forced to buy an entirely dedicated server. Businesses quickly understood, nevertheless, that the server's enormous cost was not justified. A sizable part of server resources was frequently left unused. In addition, dedicated server turned out to be a poor business choice because the firms were paying for the full server regardless of resource consumption. This prompted companies to choose cloud-based solutions. Therefore, the transition to the cloud makes it easier to set up applications that people may use in their browsers rather than download to their devices. This significantly drives the market growth.

Increase in the Utilization of Cloud Storage   

The most practical and effective way to save data online nowadays is through cloud-based storage apps. In the world of cloud computing, there are numerous cloud-based solutions providers. Since this market is so big, every major tech company now has its own data center facility, which helps to increase user revenue significantly. Eventually the evolution to cloud-based solutions and the rise in organizational data traffic and big data analytics are also anticipated to flourish the growth of the data center interconnect market. There is a rising need for backup and storage as the amount of data generated increases.  

Data center interconnect tools facilitate communication and information exchange between their connected components and both internal and external networks of the data centers. Companies use these tools to create stable connections between data centers and their connected devices which facilitates fast and secure data transfer. Moreover, the usability and accessibility of cloud-based apps have further fueled the growth of the data center interconnect market.

Technological Trends:

Designed for operational simplicity, the DCI platform enables hassle-free, rapid scalability. With support for various interfaces, modulation schemes, and deployment scenarios, including the option to run over existing photonic lines, the simple operations and quick turn-up available with DCI helps streamline operations, business performance, and each customer’s experience. It also offers openness and programmability for easy automation with back-office tools. In addition, common management interfaces and industry-standard APIs built into modern DCI solutions enables to automate labor-intensive manual tasks to reduce errors from repetitive operations. Furthermore, due to high capacity and seamless scalability to multiple terabits of capacity helps to meet traffic growth requirements for the foreseeable future without massive injections of capital expenditure (CAPEX) or network disruptions due to bandwidth exhaust. Key players in the market launched various data center interconnect solutions to strengthen their positions in the data center interconnect market.

For instance, February 2021, AMS-IX launched a new data center interconnect service for its customers. The service enables customers to use the AMS-IX Amsterdam platform to privately move data from one AMS-IX point of presence (PoP) to another, allowing them to benefit from enhanced network performance and secure and reliable connections. Using the service, a customer can connect any of their AMS-IX Access connections, extend their internet infrastructure and reach other data centers, enabling them to buy or sell services there. Moreover, the service can be used to build a data center backbone and connect two or more existing data center locations to perform data back-ups and migrations. Such factors fueled the data center interconnect market growth.
