Develop Future-Ready Data Centers With Disruptive Technologies
Global end-user spending on public cloud services is expected to exceed $480 billion in 2022* according to Gartner. But recent research from the analyst company also shows that retrofitting on-premises data centers is also key to handling evolving and emerging workloads.
The inextricable rise of the large public cloud service providers, together with high-profile mergers and acquisitions between colocation operators, has attracted a lot of recent attention. Arguably, this activity has been to the detriment of enterprise-owned data center growth, but these facilities still make up the vast bulk of the world’s data centers and are unlikely to go away any time soon.
In fact, deploying an efficient retrofit solution — based around emerging and disruptive technologies such as liquid cooling, rear-door heat exchangers, and micro data centers — may the best strategy for giving legacy enterprise sites new or prolonged life, especially when the solution enables any of the following practices recommended by Gartner:
- Enhance delivery
- Maximize space
