The New Telco Data Centre - Pricing for the New Telecoms Data Centre – 2014 to 2019

Published: June 2014

The report is based on a survey of 57 Telecoms Providers with Data Centre facilities based across 33 countries worldwide. The Telecoms Providers included in the survey meet the following criteria:

  • Build, own & operate their own Telco Data Centre facilities
  • Provide a wide range of services from their own Data Centre facilities
  • Have made recent new Data Centre investments

TCL has excluded those Telecoms Providers who only rent their Data Centre facilities from other third party providers in the survey. But in practice many Telecoms Providers who build their own Data Centre facilities in their domestic market rent Data Centre capacity from third party Carrier Neutral Data Carriers when in overseas markets.

In the report in total there are 57 Telecoms Providers worldwide surveyed by TCL. They have more than 1,600 identified Data Centre facilities worldwide (in 33 countries), although some of the facilities listed are rented from third party Data Centres.

It should be noted that not all of the facilities listed are high specification Data Centres, the large Telecoms Provider typically still has a mix of colocation and dedicated specialist Data Centre real estate in their portfolio.

The pricing data used in the report is based on TCL’s existing unique Data Centre pricing database, which provides housing and colocation space and pricing from Data Centre providers from all over the world and is updated on a regular basis: typically every quarter.  TCL tracks key Data Centre trends of capacity & pricing worldwide on a continuous basis.

In preparing the report TCL has also been able to draw upon previous research from a range of other published reports and subscription services including the following:

  • TCL Data Centre Price Tracker Subscription Service
  • TCL Data Centre Pricing in Europe report
  • TCL Pricing the Cloud report
  • TCL Premium Data Centre Pricing report
  • TCL Data Centre Pricing France
  • TCL Data Centre Pricing Germany
  • TCL Data Centre Pricing Netherlands
  • TCL Data Centre Pricing UK

The New Telco Data Centre report is also based on pricing information received directly from the Telecom Providers with Data Centre facilities.

The TCL report is also based on a mixture of face to face or telephone interviews with the key 57 Telecoms Providers worldwide (listed in the previous table). It also is based on a questionnaire - which has been sent to the 57 listed Telecoms Providers - which is used to generate the basis of the TCL forecast for New Telco Data Centre service pricing and capacity.

In the report TCL refers to the classification of Data Centre tiers used by the US-based UpTime Institute, with Data Centre facilities graded by four tiers from Tier I to Tier IV: based on the ability of the Data Centre provider to offer a resilient service based on duplication of critical systems, including power, cooling and back up services.

For reference, the definition of the UpTime Institute Data Centre tier classification is shown below –

  • The US-based Uptime Institute has created a standard classification of Data Centre resilience which is as follows:
  • Tier 1: Single path Power & Cooling distribution; no redundant components:     99.671% availability
  • Tier 2: Single path Power & Cooling distribution; redundant components:     99.749% availability
  • Tier 3: Multiple path Power & Cooling distribution but one path active; redundant components: 99.982% availability
  • Tier 4: Multiple path Power & Cooling distribution with active paths; redundant components: 99.995% availability

Data Centre pricing provided in the report

Where Telecoms Provider Data Centre facility or product pricing is provided, TCL converts the local currency provided into USD at the exchange rate used in Appendix 1. The pricing given excludes VAT or sales tax. Pricing is provided direct from the Telecoms Provider and is based on standard list pricing for rack space or colocation space.

For some sensitive products (particularly IP Transit and Managed Services) Telecoms Providers are reluctant to publish pricing, so the pricing shown in the report is anonymised. For IT outsourcing services pricing is also difficult to calculate as there is a high degree of customization.

Data Centre space provided in the report

Where TCL provides a forecast for Telecoms Provider Data Centre space, the forecast is based on technical space or raised floor space used for colocation or equipment, not the gross space available.

Other product pricing provided in the report

TCL has provided product pricing for services that are provided by the Telecoms Provider using New Telco Data Centre facilities (including Hosting, Cloud & Managed Services). The price information has been sourced direct from the Telecoms Provider and is based on standard list pricing and excludes any volume discounts that may be available.
