Data Center Stakeholder Contacts

Goals

    To gain insight regarding customers in the data center market to create a list of customer titles (stakeholder designations) for the New Construction, MRO, and OEM categories. The challenges will be in locating names, titles, organizations, locations, phone numbers, and e-mails for the various types of customers.

Early Findings

As we dove into the research required to produce a list, we found a comprehensive list of data center providers and technology vendors. The challenge will be in finding accurate data that includes a list of specific contact information for each company per sector.

  • A list of data centers can be obatined by accessing the Data Center Company website.
  • The total GDP of America is over US $18 trillion and with a contribution of 7.1% from the digital economy.
  • The U.S. contains several data center clusters with primary colocation data center markets in Los Angeles, Bay Area, Chicago, Dallas, and New York.
  • The top five U.S. data center operators are CenturyLink, Verizon, Digital Realty, AT&T, and Equinix.
  • A data center 'vendors' can be aquired through a paywall service.
