2021 Data Center Global Market Comparison



Each data center was individually scored across thirteen weighted criteria in three distinct categories: real estate and physical considerations (development pipeline, environmental risk, land price, vacancy), ecosystem advantages (cloud availability, fiber connectivity, market size, sustainability), and political and regulatory review (government incentives, political stability, power cost, taxes). Then, it was possible to assign each metropolitan area an overall market score .
