1 comment

Contrary to the initial beliefs of some experts (and media personalities like Jim Cramer) virtualization technologies are driving growth in the data center industry. This white paper from Digital Realty Trust shows us why the technology like virtualization is actually increasing demand for data center space.

There is no question that virtualization has help data center operators with issues like increasing computing density, rapid technology deployment, and solving some power and cooling challenges. What many of the initial opinions did not consider is how virtualization is driving deployment of many new applications and data center demands. Industry veteran Mark Monroe cited several examples of new application drivers like storage virtualization. He also points out how many servers are, and will continue to be, dedicated to serving a single application.

This paper also provides quantitative data center growth trend from many leading research companies like IDC and the Uptime Institute. You’ll find this paper extremely valuable when it comes to planning for your future data center needs. Click here to download this white paper.
