The Asian economy might not be able to wake up so quickly from its bearish slumber, at least not as far as the data centre market is concerned.
The Market Pulse survey published recently by Emerson Network Power indicated that executives of the region's data centre market are not yet ready to shift from their conservative view in planning. According to the report, this outlook emerged because of signs of weakening project pipeline in August 2009 and remained for the rest of last year. Furthermore, this is the first time in the report's history that the number of projects completed outpaced the projects forecast, indicating that the industry is in a bearish mood in its planning, despite reports in the media that the worst of the global crisis is over. "This more cautious approach is echoed in further attributes throughout the report," said Russell Perry, marketing director for Emerson Network Power in Asia.
