The data center industry is subject to the same trends as its customers, although it remains cautious to change.
Cloud, Interner Objects, social responsibility are among the major trends which are subject datacenter. Whether one is DSI with its own infrastructure or data center operator, accommodation structures and data management are subject to the same key trends for 2016.
Complexity of Cloud Computing
The widespread use of cloud and SaaS, and the transition to hybrid environments, expand and complicate the mission of the data center. Add to this that the operation of servers is still largely in deficit, the recovery of ‘dead time’ must allow to consider new cloud models and shared décentralissé.
The architecture before the technology
While data center technology constantly evolving, the priority of their operators continues to move architectures, which will provide more efficiency, availability, customization, and savings.
A common language for IoT
If it is still embryonic, the Internet of Things will have a strong impact on the data center, whether to communicate, collect and share data, or to treat them. However, operators face a real difficulty, they must deal with a multitude of languages and protocols. This area should evolve very quickly.
Performance, availability and security are combined with efficiency and durability, which makes it necessary to develop social responsibility datacenter. And to ensure that CIOs and operators do not pass next to their responsibility, the European Union has concocted their targets for energy efficiency in the long term. One of the difficulties in this trend will gather the data center ecosystem so that all its players contribute.
The proximity data center
Faced with large centralized data centers grows provides a proximity – with regional data centers and micro-satellites and automated data center – which offers advanced equipment, low latency, network solution for the IoT, and a local presence , which enables organizations to meet regulatory expectations and practices that are needed to them.
