The focus on the modern data center is only continuing to grow. As the business world moves to digitize even more infrastructure components, the data center will sit square in the middle of all of these new deployments. In fact, almost all of the new technologies and modern solutions which are coming out find the data center as their home. We can now call it “The Data Center of Everything.”
There are a lot more users coming online. These users are sharing more data and are requiring more services to be delivered to them. Data and services must stay highly available and very resilient. Furthermore, as more users fill the data center environment, high-density computing and highly efficiency systems are making their ways into the data center 2.0 infrastructures.
Big data center providers are sitting ahead of the curve for a few very specific reasons. They caught the cloud wave at the right time and deployed internal systems which were capable of handling the influx of data, users, and business which came to the data center for help.
As the data center of everything, organizations are directly looking to these new types of platforms to help them with many new types of business challenges. Companies of all sizes and verticals now see it as financially feasible and logical to move towards a data center model. And for good reason too. The data center has evolved from a brick and mortar shop to an infrastructure without walls. This means that these environments are logically connected to create massive resources pools and highly available data center platforms.
So, why is it good to be in the data center business?
The modern data center will only continue to evolve. Business drivers and demands are growing and more organizations are offloading services to the data center platform. Remember, the data center environment has become the heart of any organization as the central IT resource. These environments are being carefully managed, monitored and planned around for the future.
Conversations around pre-fabricated and modularized data centers are already growing rapidly. According to the 2012 Uptime Institute Survey, 41 percent of their respondents said that they are using traditional data center environments which are supplemented with pre-fabricated components. Another 19 percent said that they already have a data center made entirely out of pre-fabricated systems.
As reliance around the data center continues to grow, providers must stay ahead of the curve. This means understanding new demands and delivering data center services around those offerings. Whether those are new types of cloud platforms or better big data management systems – the data center will be the home of it all.
