dc.description.abstract The intention of the research was to analyze the market for data centers in Sri Lanka which is a service offered by the Sri Lanka Telecom at the moment. However as at now Sri Lanka telecom is not having many customers for its data counter. Hence another objective of the research was to identify the business models and suitable packages of data centers to Sri Lanka./ The market was analyzed using a questionnaire method; business models and suitable packages are analyzed by the use of Internet and the information gathered from Data center world conference that was held at Chicago in the USA. The questionnaire was developed according to the information gathered by visiting various data center web sites. The demand variables were " Awareness", "Quality", "Security". "Cost" and the '"Reach-ability". All these variables were measured using the likert scale with 20 questions and the last two questions were descriptive type to get some input to my other objectives of the research. The target number of those questionnaires was 40 and managed to collect all 40 as 1 collected information mainly through the personal interviews. However 20 questionnaires were distributed through e-mails and got all 20 with the input they were followed up with the corporate customers whom had good relationship with me./ According to the analysis many people had a good idea about what is a data center and that is the trend in the world today except few people who did not know what is a data center and the uses of it clearly. However according to the data received there were not much about the cost awareness about a data center. People the sample did not have idea that there is a big saving due to outsourcing the data to a data center. That could be a good point to market data centers in Sri Lanka. The implications for the industry in view of these results of the research were looked at in the conclusions.
