Andris Gailitis, the CEO of Baltics largest European data center operator DEAC, has participated in 2nd Datacentres Central and Eastern Europe Regional Forum, that has taken place in Prague, on 22nd-23rd of February.
«The data centers of Central and Eastern Europe are in a very beneficial situation right now, including the benefits of geographical location. We are located just between the huge market of CIS countries and the powerful market of Europe. The infrastructure allows us to provide reliable communications to both sides. That is why the data centers of Central and Eastern Europe are developing so rapidly”, explains A. Gailitis.
In Latvia, as in other countries of the region, we see the stagnation of the local market. In Latvia the number of local customer rises almost insensibly. But as in other countries of the region, the growth of export is rapid”, A. Gailitis compares the market trends with colleagues from other countries of the region.
“Data centers are acting as an economy measuring instrument today. Now the globalization trends are getting more and more apparent. Firstly, the services of data centers, oriented on large markets while the local market is in stagnation. Secondly, a notable growth of large and medium business customers”, A. Gailitis comments the trends.
“The volume of data, that global corporations are intending to locate as closer as they can to their European and CIS countries consumers, is continuing to grow. The demand for this region sometimes is so huge, that often one data center alone can not handle the request, that is why it is so important to have a cluster of mutual regional contacts”, says A. Gailitis.
Beside the geographical location, there are other regional benefits. A. Gailitis mentions the qualification of specialists and services cost. “Our expenses are lower than in Western Europe and we are considered a more reliable region, comparing to CIS countries. But I would like to point out the ability, creativity and responsiveness of our specialists. That is what our customers value so much, as they are glad to solve problems, if such have occured, with real and solution-seeking specialists”, explains A. Gailitis.
“In the context of Central and Eastern Europe, DEAC is one the leading market players, that together with other leaders defines the business expansion pace for the whole region. We are one of the regional leaders, and the region itself is soon to become a leader. We need to use these opportunities!”, cheers A. Gailitis.
