This IDC Market Forecast presents a picture of the datacenter services industry in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and Western Europe (WE) in 2020 and forecasts datacenter services expenditure through 2025. The study includes market size and distribution by basic datacenter services market category — IaaS, PaaS, colocation, storage and backup, unmanaged servers, and managed servers — for the two subregions, CEE and WE, and for the three largest countries in each subregion — the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, Poland, and the Czech Republic. 'Demand for cloud platform and infrastructure services has been boosted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which is expected to continue to drive datacenter services spending in the coming years. We will see increased demand for managed services, especially managed public/hybrid cloud services, as a result of economic uncertainty and the current shortage of certified cloud experts.' — Program Manager Libor Dvorak, IDC EMEA.
