About the report
The updated TCL UK Data Centre Pricing – 2014 to 2019 report was written from the period from the end of November 2014 to the middle of December 2014. The report uses both primary and secondary sources of information. It updates the original UK Data Centre Pricing report first published in 2012. All pricing and forecasts have been extensively revised.
The report is based on a TCL survey and analysis of 59 Data Centre providers in the UK - which have some 151 Data Centre facilities across the country.
It draws on information from previous TCL reports (including the TCL Premium Data Centre report) and from the TCL Data Centre Price Tracker subscription service. The pricing shown in the report is in Euro – and has been converted from GBPs at the rate of 0.83 Euro to 1 GBP. All pricing is shown exclusive of VAT and taxes.
All UK Data Centre raised floor space in this report is converted into square metres from square feet at the following rate: 10 square feet = 0.929 square metres
In the report for consistency all power per rack is shown in kilowatts (kW) per rack and in kilowatts per hour (kW per hour). Total power into the Data Centre from the national grid is shown in MegaWatts (MW) or MVA.
The basis of the report is a unique model of the UK Data Centre market developed by TCL - which includes the key metrics of power, capacity and pricing by facility and by Data Centre provider. The information for the model is obtained from each provider and is then integrated into the TCL database as part of a “bottom up” process.
The report also uses telephone and face to face interviews along with a TCL questionnaire which is used to provide information on Data Centre capacity and demand factors for the forecast.
The TCL report also uses information which comes from a range of sources including independent experts, Data Centre company presentations, telecoms companies, IT companies and real estate companies.
