Our data center news segments are in two core verticals. First, hyperscale tenants that have critical IT power loads >1 megawatt on 5 to 10-year leases. Second, enterprise or colocation facilities that have heavily dense fiber, which provide connectivity and managed services. Theses enterprise or colocation facilities have IT critical power loads of <1 megawatt on 3 to 5-year leases.

Additionally, our data center news includes mega trends like 5G. 5G will drive a sizable increase in the amount of data that is computed and stored that will ultimately require data center capacity. Many 5G solutions will rely on sensors and devices to collect data. Sensors will then send that data back to a data center. At the data center, using technologies such as artificial intelligence, the data is then harnessed to create new use cases.
