UK Data Center Market – Dynamics
The cloud adoption among UK enterprises is over 50% for a minimum of one service. AWS, Microsoft, Google, Alibaba, Tencent, IBM, and Oracle have presence in the UK market, offering services to end-users. The Brexit has brought uncertainty among cloud providers in terms of storage and retrieval of customer data in the UK. European companies with physical presence in the UK are migrating workloads to Germany, the Netherlands, France, or other EU countries. In February 2020, Google announced the migration of the UK user data related to services such as Gmail, YouTube, and Android Play Store from Ireland to the US to avoid post Brexit legal risks. In 2020, the increase in cloud services demand has led to the launch of 10 new services (such as cybersecurity) by Microsoft in the UK. Also, AWS and Microsoft Azure are the dominant players in the UK cloud market.
