Total U.S. investments in data centers reached a record high of nearly $20 billion in 2017. Robust demand is expected to spill into 2018 due to increasing data consumption and the fast evolution of technology. CBRE forecasts that nearly 300 megawatts of data center space will be completed in primary markets this year. (One megawatt generally requires 4,000 servers.) Read the report here.
