Europe Middle East & Africa (EMEA) Data Center Blade Markets, 2021-2026 –

DUBLIN – (COMMERCIAL THREAD)–The “Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) Data Center Blade Market – Forecasts 2021 to 2026” the report was added to offer.

The EMEA data center blade server market was valued at US $ 5.316 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.17% during the forecast period to reach a market size of US $ 9.211 billion by 2026.

A blade server is a small, portable, high-density device that houses a computer that is used to manage and distribute data across a network. This device serves as an interface between computers, programs, applications and systems.

Essentially, a blade server is a modularly designed server computer that is optimized to use minimal physical space and energy. Most often, they are used by large data centers because they need to maximize their space and usability and efficiency, have high IT demands, and can withstand higher thermal and electrical load.

As data traffic increases dramatically in the Middle East and North Africa, the server market is growing. The market demand for ODM servers is increasing. IT infrastructure is adopted by data center operators to support high-end data processing. Using IoT, big data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, businesses across the region are slowly turning to blade servers to support a low-tech operating environment. high density. In addition, the product is relatively less expensive because each server blade is not made up of a separate infrastructure and chassis.

An increasing number of data centers are being built in Eastern Europe, resulting in increased demand for blade servers in this region. ‘Data4’, a French data center company, is investing 100 million euros in its first campus in Poland within three years, and 200 million euros by 2025. The company is owned by AXA Investment Managers who operates 21 data centers in France, Italy, Luxembourg and Spain.

The growth of blade servers in EMEA is driven by increased investments in IT, automation and virtualization. As European data centers grow and the need for density optimization increases, blade servers are becoming increasingly popular in the region. Nonetheless, the high investment required for blade server adoption may hamper market growth. Having to install racks or other hardware as part of the network infrastructure can result in higher adoption costs, which can be a barrier to growth.

In terms of data center infrastructure, international companies providing cloud services have partnered with third party vendors to support their services with large capacity data centers and blade servers to reduce operating costs. . African countries have already embraced cloud computing over the past decade. Banks, for example, have increasingly turned to cloud services like Amazon Web Services, Heroku, and Microsoft Azure that traditionally operated in-house servers and storage facilities.

Growth factors:

Technology acceptance:

The adaptation of digitization brings with it a demand for accumulation of data which can fuel the market. The rollout of 5G commercial networks has led to an increase in demand for high-speed internet in Tier II and III cities in the Middle East. Large-scale installations will connect multiple edge data centers, creating a decentralized data center model. The Saudi market has been a leader in the expansion of 5G networks, with significant contributions from telecommunications companies Zain, Saudi Telcom Company and MOBILY.

Use of renewable energy:

Renewable energy is the top priority of all economies around the world and is a key driver for the blade server market due to its minimal power consumption.

By switching to less carbon-intensive fuels, data center operators and service providers are protecting massive investments in generators. Microsoft and Kao Data both have alternative fuel initiatives in their data centers in Europe. At its UK campus in Harlow, Kao Data said it has converted all standby generators to HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil), reducing emissions of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide. special case.

Rise of the gaming industry:

The EU’s digital ambition will have an increasingly important impact on the European gaming ecosystem due to this commitment to innovation, economic growth and progress. A rapidly growing segment of European creative industries, video games represent one of the most attractive economic sectors in Europe.

Video game companies have increasingly turned to the cloud, due to the evolving gaming ecosystem in Europe, which has produced generations of technology and creative talent. Cloud gaming services have recently appeared on the service lists of major tech and gaming companies, from Sony’s PlayStation Now to Microsoft-powered xCloud.

File sharing, virtual server platform hosting, SSL encryption, and database and application hosting are some of its features. By increasing storage capacity and reducing administration costs, blade servers improve server performance.

Competition overview:

There are a number of significant players in the data center blade server market, which is moderately consolidated. In addition, these companies are constantly investing in acquiring and partnering with other companies to reach new markets. The barrier to entry for new players is also high as companies need more initial capital to enter the market.
