Colocation data center investment is skyrocketing to meet growing demands and to meet the latest set of European Union data regulations, which say that data must be stored in the country in which it’s generated.

In this white paper, Iron Mountain Data Centers provides an overview of the German colocation market. It explores strengths and weaknesses of the market as well as the latest issues and opportunities.
Most of the European colocation capacity can be found in four major cities – Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, and Paris. The paper also explains what makes Frankfurt such a popular data center market.
