Data Center Properties Create a Powerful Pull
Sep 6, 2016 |
Technology is evolving exponentially. On all fronts—business, consumer, user—the Internet has become a necessity. Whether saving company files to the cloud, shopping on Amazon or streaming Netflix, all this data flows through one commercial real estate property type: data centers.
This greater demand for data presents a significant opportunity for investors in data center properties.
“Corporate clients in the past five years have migrated quickly from owning data center properties to sale/leaseback, colocation, managed services. They are more focused on third-party solutions (colocation, cloud, managed services), as well as flexibility for these services,” says Patrick Lynch, managing director for data center solutions at real estate services firm CBRE.
The Blue Vault Summit could not have been more perfectly timed. This gathering of the Broker Dealer and Sponsor communities provided insightful and open discussion from several vantage points. These conversations are paramount, especially in a time of significant regulatory change.
