Data Centre

The conventional data centre has been the traditional vehicle for supporting the business. Ironically, while technology liberated organisations from the bricks and mortar that once defined and contained them, the data centre remained behind like a fixed point in space and time.

IDC believes that enterprise networking, as well as data centre networking, will continue to be transformed by virtualisation, cloud, new applications, mobility, big data, and social media. According to Industry Arc, the global data centre infrastructure market, which was around $14.1bn in 2013 is expected to increase to around $18.5bn in 2018. Growth factors include increasing demand for servers across countries for faster data access and growing data storage needs along with higher speed requirements for cloud infrastructure maintenance by cloud, big data companies.

The new model for a data centre is less tied to a physical plant and more integrated into the very fabric of an organization. It still has technology inside with blinking lights and wiring closets, but it also extends outward to the point where the business interacts with customers and partners.
