We are entering a digital revolution where more companies and users are utilizing even more data and applications. Cisco recently pointed out that annual global data center IP traffic will reach 10.4 zettabytes (863 exabytes per month) by the end of 2019, and that global data center IP traffic will grow three-fold over the next five years. This growth makes the data center an absolutely critical component for IT and the modern business. The challenge, however, becomes updating and integrating everything with modern data center architecture. Most of all, organizations are looking at ways they can optimize the delivery of their resources and create true efficiency.

In a new whitepaper sponsored by NTT, we learn about the next-generation systems that are impacting resource and environmental utilization within the modern data center. The paper outlines the critical points to consider when creating a data architecture that can align with market demands:

  • Identifying the challenges around power density

  • Understanding IT equipment thermal management

  • Limitations of some cooling designs

  • How to create system energy efficiency

  • Optimizing the TCO of your entire data center

Download this whitepaper now to understand how you can create a data center environmental control design that is truly agile. Plus, learn how to align cost objectives with life cycle management and TCO optimization, and also see how you can build better high-density designs.
