The Ins and Outs of Data Centers
I think one of the misconceptions about the data center business is that it’s a niche space. And the reality is it's become a very large industry and investment. And one of the things that we reference in talking to our clients is the fact that the five largest publicly traded data center companies are equal to the five largest office and industrial from a market cap perspective, which I think is surprising to many people. And I think [it’s] indicative of the growth of the industry over the last several years and what we think will continue to be a growth industry as we create more and more data, more and more interconnection, and [as] the need for security and distribution of that data becomes more and more critical.
