What's in a Name? The Colocation Database is Now the Data Center Research Service.

By Jon HjemboMar 15, 2019


This is a brief service announcement for our colocation-inclined readers. As of today, our beloved Colocation Database is now the Data Center Research Service.

Why the name change?

To be honest, "Data Center Research Service" better captures what this product is all about and where our research is taking us.

This service is about interconnection. At the intersection of network and data center development we find ecosystems across an array of facilities. This includes retail sites and carrier hotels, as well as wholesale and hyperscale facilities.

Essentially, we're studying where the internet happens—and that's bigger than just colocation.

None of this outstanding analysis is going to change. All of the features and functionality that you're used to will remain in place.

To that end, our subscription still includes:

  • Interactive map depicting over 4,000 active data centers
  • Colocation pricing workbook, which includes 32 major metro areas and converts prices from local currencies into USD
  • Data center site profiles, including operator contact details, megawatt capacity, floor space, and vital details about the site ecosystem
  • Analysis of global data center market trends compiled from 1,500 site surveys

We're excited to keep improving this product. Thanks to all of our loyal readers for pushing us to keep the Data Center Research Service fresh and thoughtful.
