SMBs across the globe are experiencing an increasing burden of data center management and maintenance. With the increasing complexity of enterprise computing infrastructure and the increasing demands from the enterprise businesses, there is a need for better management and maintenance services to be provided. To reduce the burden, the enterprises are opting for outsourced services from third-party service providers that are providing the services at lower prices compared to internal management of the services. There are many vendors that are providing data center equipment and service outsourcing which is beneficial for SMBs. Various applications are being procured to support the enterprise business which are hosted at the data center facility and utilized by end-users as and when required.

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the need for rapidly scalable computing infrastructure and facilities. With expanding business, SMBs are experiencing a need for better and faster computing facilities to be incorporated as a part of the enterprise infrastructure. With increasing complexity of the computing infrastructure, there is a need for centralization of the resources in a single location which will ease the management and maintenance of the infrastructure.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the increasing complexity of the network infrastructure which is leading to confusion for the enterprises in choosing the right solution which will suit the requirements of their business. With increasing complexity, there is a growth in spending to be incurred into hiring the human expertise to manage the network functioning. SMBs store their business critical information and data in the data centers.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
