1 Hosting and Colocation Regional Strategies for Growth April 2015

2 Key Findings Location is becoming increasingly important for colocation and hosting providers alike, with a growing need by those providing services to have services delivered from facilities closer to the end user The network will play a vital role in keeping distributed operations connected. Expect to see significant investment in the network, but demand for greater automation and network management will push the emphasis away from the hardware with the focus being on network virtualization and NFV As expected, the US and UK show greater market maturity for colocation and hosting than France and Germany, but we expect demand for outsourcing of IT services to eventually grow in these markets driven largely by an increasing focus on data regulation. 2

3 Overall sample size N=453 USA 33% UK 22% France 23% Germany 22% Web-based survey: 150 from US 100 from UK 100 from Germany 103 from France 3

4 When looking at the survey results, for Europe we focused on the Hosting Providers The European and US hosting markets are dominated by smaller players.

10 Services Definitions Hosting Services: Hosting services can include basic compute and storage infrastructure, web hosting, application hosting to managed services. Pricing is typically based on hourly or monthly usage. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS): A finished application where the independent software vendor (ISV) owns the intellectual property (IP) of the application and manages all access to the application, including security, availability and performance in a multi-tenant environment. Outsourcing Services: Typically where an outsourcer or systems integrator takes over an entire IT business function for your organization, including supplying IT systems, applications and staff. Contracts are typically multi-year commitments. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS): A hosted application development and deployment environment that typically includes a set of tools, libraries and services configured as a solution. This solution typically supports the entire application development lifecycle, including coding, testing, deployment, runtime, hosting and delivery. Colocation: Colocation services are rack space and Internet access where customers typically deploy and manage their own hardware and software. NOTE: These definitions are different than those in 451 s Market Monitor Research. 10

11 Regarding services, there were definite differences in offerings by country Services Offered Now and in 2 Years US Colocation Firms, European Hosting Firms 10 8 Hosting Over 5 of US firms offering colo also offer other services. Over 2 do not plan to offer colo in future. Around 1 of UK firms plan to add PaaS services some will drop colo Half or more German respondents already offer SaaS and PaaS.

Which if any of the following IT services does your company provide, resell or provide consulting services for today? M3. Now thinking out two years, which of the following IT services will your company provide? France (n=80) SaaS Outsourcing PaaS Colocation 11

12 The Hosting market is evolving rapidly Hosting providers continue to move up the stack to application hosting services. Infrastructure is still important, and some elements are growing (cloud) faster than others (dedicated servers). According to 451 Market Monitor, this shift to application hosting represents a US$3bn change. N = 298 Services Provided Now and in 2 Years Services Provided Now and in 2 Years % of Respondents % 58% 62% H1. Which of the following hosting services does your company currently provide? (Choose multiple) Which will be provided in 2 years? 39% 35% App. Hosting Infrastr. Hosting Mgd Services Today In two years 12

13 In the US, 55% of colo respondents expect colo revenue to shrink, as they move up the stack We estimate the North American hosting market, which represents about 63% of global revenue (CHECK) to experience 13% CAGR through 2016 to be valued at US$34bn.

16 Infrastructure Hosting & Cloud Trends The challenge faced by IaaS specialists, telcos, enterprise technology vendors, managed service providers, outsourcers and hosters is how to differentiate their offerings in the marketplace to make them attractive. The hyperscalers of AWS, Google and Microsoft have huge economies of scale, diverse revenue streams and the ability to squeeze margins to the limit. The price of simple IaaS services will continue to be eroded, and these services will continue to be commoditized. Service providers that have previously emulated the likes of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in terms of IaaS services will increasingly realize that by emulating them, they have lost their differentiation and are now fighting a battle they can t win. Their focus will turn to traits already acquired - experience, management and support capability, and diverse products. This may include integrated services, end-to-end management, industry-specific product stacks, application management, regional capability, global network capability and hybrid or multi-cloud. Brokering or reselling the hyperscalers services is likely to result in a smaller cost base, but with the basis from which to upsell value. 16

17 Infrastructure Hosting: Definitions Hosted Dedicated Servers: Resources dedicated only to one client. Little to no pooling of IT resources, automation or orchestration; dedicated infrastructure is not shared with other customers. Hosted Private Cloud: Resources dedicated only to one client. Pooled IT resources, automated and orchestrated but on dedicated infrastructure. Public Cloud: Resources shared among multiple organizations. Pooled IT resources, automated and orchestrated, shared by multiple customers. NOTE: These definitions are different than those in 451 s Market Monitor Research. 17

20 Hosting companies are offering a variety of platforms to customers Hosting companies are clearly remaining agnostic when it comes to the cloud services they offer to customers and platforms of choice.

21 Hybrid Cloud Service Plans Over 9 of Hosters offer Hybrid Cloud services, or plan to Connectivity between all cloud environments will be a key part of cloud provisioning for hosting providers moving forward. % of Hosting Providers % 7% 12% 36% 39% 31% 56% 55% 56% Customer private to public Customer private to hosted private Hosted private to public No plans to offer Plan to offer in two years Currently Offer N = 233 I3b1.
