Datacenter Transformation Vendor Window: CyrusOne, Equinix earn top ratings

Combining a proprietary panel of more than 50,000 senior IT buyers with our robust data-collection methodologies, 451 Research's Voice of the Enterprise: Datacenter Transformation tracks and analyzes the disruption occurring in the market today and exposes the major opportunities for enterprises, IT vendors, suppliers and investors.

The latest release includes the 451 Research Vendor Window, which plots enterprise adoption as well as Promise and Fullfillment indices that compare vendors' effectiveness at both marketing and execution. The Vendor Promise Index is designed to measure the perception of a vendor prior to purchase, while the Vendor Fulfillment Index is designed as a measure of execution effectiveness around service delivery and product performance post implementation. The study also looks at IT infrastructure and datacenter facility spending trends, datacenter building plans and workload deployment locations.

We saw relatively high overall satisfaction reported by organizations that use colocation services. Whereas colocation is seen by some as the first logical step to full-blown cloud migration, these high ratings captured across the entire sample could further preserve a near-traditional IT ecosystem environment across the data center market, at least for the foreseeable future.

Within those colocation vendor ratings, CyrusOne, Digital Realty Trust, Equinix and CenturyLink all received above-average ratings by customers both prior to purchase and after implementation. This is a challenging market fraught with fragmentation, but leaders in the space (including the aforementioned vendors) are delivering in accordance with customer expectations, particularly for reliability, uptime, network performance, and connectivity options.
