In October 2007 we launched Data Center Map, which means that this month it is our five year birthday!
A lot have happened since, so today we are taking a quick trip down memory lane with some statistics.
Back when we started out, we covered about 500 colocation and wholesale data centers from around 30 countries.
Today we cover 2700+ facilities from around 90 countries, growing with new locations every week. Apart from that we have also expanded our scope of services, by covering the industry with detailed profiles and pop lists of 900+ carriers, 150+ internet exchange points and 150+ cloud service providers. On a good month we handle about 200,000 page views and get 20+ new providers sign up to promote their services via our site. On top of that we get 400+ leads via our quote service, that help clients receive quotes from potential providers from all over the world.
Five years ago it could be a challenge finding a suitable data center, especially in a foreign market with no local insight, which we believe we have changed. We hope that you at some point during the last five years, have found our services helpful in your daily work – whether you were looking for services, looking to promote your company or looking to get insight in to the industry.
We would like to thank you all for five years with great support, feedback and a lot of great suggestions. Feel free to get in touch, if you have any ideas that could improve our service, your daily tasks and make the next five years even better!
Either way, we look forward to another 5!
