Top Data Center Providers: Who are they and how do they rank globally?

18 May 2017
Top Data Center Companies

We recently revealed the results of our Q1, 2017 Leaderboard which ranks the top data center companies in North America, EMEA, Oceania and Asia.

Selected from a pool of more than 4,900 service providers*, the top ten ranking is determined per region based on a combined score of density (number of colocation data centers) and connectivity (number of PoPs).

Equinix dominated the rankings across all four regions comfortably taking the top spot in each leaderboard. Global Switch also performed strongly, securing a top five spot in three of the regions. Both operators also feature in the top five data center operators with the most direct connections in data center facilities worldwide (see Cloud On-Ramps).

The top data center companies for quarter one of this year are revealed below.

Please note, the cut-off for the Q2 Leaderboard is Friday, 24 June 2017. To ensure the accuracy of all data center listings for next quarter’s leaderboard, data center operators are encouraged to update their company data on Cloudscene before the cut-off date.
