New study of the Canadian market for hosting services underway

April 12, 2010 — Market Metrics and The Gottlieb Group announced today that an update of their joint study of the Canadian market for hosting services has been commissioned by NBI/Michael Sone Associates. The firms define “hosting services” as the provision of IT services based upon outsourced infrastructure operated in a data centre by a third-party.

The initial Canadian Hosting Market Report described the competitive landscape of the hosting market in Canada in the period 2006-2008, and divided the market into three segments — collocation, shared hosting and managed hosting. Estimates of the size of the Canadian market, market segments and vendor market shares were presented, as were in-depth profiles of the ten leading hosting service providers active in Canada. Major industry trends were identified and discussed. The report was 88 pages in length with 20 detailed exhibits that provided comprehensive quantification and analysis.

The updated report will be similar in content and cover the time period 2008-2010. Planned for publication this summer, the report will be exclusively available from NBI/Michael Sone Associates.
