The data center industry has been witness to rapid developments in its sphere of business. High performance computing, the emerging realization of the cloud as a component in various levels of business, the Internet or Things (IoT) and the implications of big data are a few important influential factors. Keeping in line with these changes is essential for the growth and even survival of this industry. Therefore, data centers have evolved with the development of these technologies, changing the way business is done and adopting the right advancements in architecture.
Core areas of the data center business that have witnessed these changes include the infrastructure, additional safety nets for data and the placement of different kinds of data. When data centers deal with sensitive data like those related to the health or finance industry, for example, several decisive factors like government regulations, distinct applications required to process this data and more come into play. In this scenario, the infrastructure entirely depends upon features, such as additional data security or speed of access to data.
In addition to these core infrastructural elements, other organizational factors such as the calculations of infrastructural investments are crucial, too. Of course, whether these investments will justify the returns is yet another important issue.
A major factor influencing the expediency of these organizational and infrastructural decisions is the enhanced nature of the cloud’s impact on the data center industry. Once considered an opponent, the cloud is increasingly being recognized as a value-enhancing component instead.
