3 Trends that Will Drive the Future of Data Centers

By CIOReview | Wednesday, June 10, 2020

The face of data centers is forever evolving; currently, it is taking advantage of many trends.

FREMONT, CA: The change that is witnessed comes as a result of new technology implementation or the use of a new strategy using the existing hardware. The facility operators of today must keep up with the times. In order to help in these efforts, those within the industry must be aware of the latest trends and also predictions for the future and also map out ways to stay ahead of the curve. Looking at the rapid technological developments, several technological trends will shape the future of data centers.

Edge computing

Every connected device that we use produces data. With more devices getting connected, it will become economically unviable to transfer data consistently to a centralized location. This increase in the number calls for building localized data centers or edge data centers to process local traffic. Unlike the traditional approach, which endorses a centralized approach and transmits every bit of data to the cloud, edge data centers keep the most significant traffic and data close to end-user applications. In the future, more adoption of edge data centers as IoT devices grow exponentially is predicted.

Hyperscale Data Centers

It refers to the capability of an IT system or architecture to exponentially and rapidly respond to the demand that is increasingly heavily. In a hyperscale data center, enterprises can replace single physical components, unlike the traditional approach of replacing the whole server, which increases expense and increases the downtime. This approach also provides extreme flexibility in scaling at the physical level, as components can be added modularly.

Security at the Chip Level

Global firms are trying to embed security at the chip level with attacks growing in range and complexity against data centers. The project is a combined open-source chip design project that is formulated to establish trustworthy chip designs for usage in data centers and other components. The firms believe that security at the chip level will ensure that the hardware and the software that runs on remains in their intended, trustworthy state by providing that the critical system components boot securely utilizing authorized and verifiable code. This can make sure that a low-level malware has not infected a server or a device boot with the correct firmware and.
