Why Are Data Centers Important?
Data centers are mission-critical buildings. These facilities provide space and redundant power, cooling, security, and connectivity to the most important companies in the world. Indeed, data center customers (or tenants) include cloud, e-commerce & gaming, enterprises, government agencies, health care, and education systems.
Cloud service provider customers include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. Internet customers include Facebook, Uber, Twitter, Netflix, Apple, and Salesforce. Finally, emerging customers include TikTok, Spotify, and Snapchat.
Data center companies and M&A transactions can typically be categorized into two core segments. Firstly, hyperscale tenants that have critical IT power loads >1 megawatt on 5 to 10-year leases. Secondly, enterprise (retail) or colocation facilities that have heavily dense fiber, which provide connectivity and managed services. These enterprise or colocation facilities have IT critical power loads of <1 megawatt on 3 to 5-year leases.
