Research and Markets: North America Colocation and Managed Hosting Services Market 2014-2018

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kksxsl/colocation_and) has announced the addition of the "Colocation and Managed Hosting Services Market in North America 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The North American Colocation and Managed Hosting Services market to grow CAGR of 13% to 2018

The report states that one of the main challenges is growing concern about data security. With rapid developments taking place, colocation service providers are finding it difficult to keep pace and deliver advanced solutions at reduced prices. The new technologies need internal training of personnel and high training investment, making the solution expensive to implement compared to in-house hosting of services.

Among the numerous growth drivers for the Colocation and Managed Hosting Services market in North America, the increasing need to reduce capital and operational expenses is the major growth driver. Data center services are provided through well-established data centers that are cheaper than internal data center service facilities. Enterprises need not spend on maintenance of the data center facilities and need to pay only for the services they use.

High-density data centers are data centers that are equipped with high-performance computing equipment. This equipment is small in size, consumes low power, and delivers high-performance computing that increases the productivity of the data center infrastructure. Consequently, enterprises are adopting high-density data center facilities to meet their computing requirements. The modern equipment comes with virtualization features, which is another factor increasing the productivity of the network. Enterprises are looking for business solutions that can reduce their capital and operational costs, which is leading to higher demand for high-density computing infrastructure.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
