AI and HPC Demand Pose Challenges: Europe Faces Struggle to Construct Sufficient Data Centers
The demand for data centers continues to rise, driven by businesses’ need for environmentally friendly and cost-effective solutions to store their data off-premises. However, a new study by Aggreko reveals that data center supply and demand in Europe are not in balance, with 92% of data center professionals reporting delays due to supply chain issues.
The material scarcity, challenging economic conditions, and changes in data storage practices are some of the factors contributing to these delays. As more businesses opt for cloud solutions, the demand for hosted space in data centers has significantly increased.
