Business Technological Predictions for Data Center and Cloud in 2019

By CIOReview | Monday, January 28, 2019

Over the years, businesses started to view data as a steering force to growth. Adopting new technology is viewed as an opportunity to generate revenue than as a cost. In this age of data, with several technologies emerging to streamline the storage and processing of data, there are a few key elements which will develop;

Trusted Data Bunkers: The increasing need to secure volumes of continuously growing data generated at edge locations require enterprises to set up and operate data vaults in multiple colocation facilities.

Interconnecting with Analytical Resources: The enterprise’s latest digital services will be built as apps that need secure, dependable interconnection with data analytical resources in the cloud or colocation facilities

Dynamic Connectivity: The enterprises will have to adopt dynamic specifically tailored software-defined branch and network solutions that can deliver security and flexibility in edge interactions and across datacenters or clouds.

Energy Intensive Computing: The demand for more processing power is initiating the trend of liquid cooling. With CPUs consuming over 200W and GPUs consuming 300W, air cooling simply can’t manage it anymore. The liquid cooling system is thousands of times more efficient at heat removal than air and more companies are overcoming their apprehension about the coolant leak as they have no choice.

Autonomous Facility: Increasing number of IT assets in enterprises' data centers will need to run autonomously by using embedded AI functionality as it leverages smart IT and facilities systems.

Consumption-Based IT: Enterprises may utilize flexible lower-cost IT consumption models that leverage centralized IT asset depots jointly run by hardware suppliers and colocation providers

Datacenter Renovation: Enterprises will shift away from large data center consolidation to modernizing optimally located smaller data centers to support data-intensive applications.

Private Clouds: Rather than investing in modernizing existing datacenters, internal investments will be used to dedicated cloud platforms to launch services.
