Data center capacity expansions over the next two years will come primarily from colocation and cloud hosting or by adding compute capacity without any physical expansion, according to a recent survey of U.S. enterprise data center managers by Vertiv. As companies embrace hybrid computing strategies, they will need flexibility in scaling capacity across different data center environments.
As your business or market shifts, how will your data center respond? Depending on how you manage it, physical infrastructure can be a limiting factor to growth and scalability – or it can be an enabler to a higher performing data center.
Join Data Center Knowledge contributor Bill Kleyman and Peter Panfil, Vice President, Global Power, for Vertiv, as they share new perspectives on managing capacity to improve your SLAs, reduce costs and support future growth, whether in the enterprise or in outsourced environments. They will discuss:
- Key trends around data center and data consumption
- New rules around managing capacity
- Power and cooling best practices to support cost-effective scalability in hybrid environments
- Tips and recommendations around SLAs, power consumption, cooling and data center management
