The data centre market is growing worldwide, with $106 billion spent equipping data centres worldwide in 2012 and a bevy of other staggering statistics showing just how the field is booming.

Three billion photos per month are uploaded to Facebook, with 25 terabytes of data managed daily, and more video is uploaded to YouTube in a single month than NBC, CBS and ABC have broadcast collectively since 1948.

Some five billion devices are connected to the internet today, with forecasts suggesting that number could balloon to 20 billion by 2020.
