With so much new cloud data traversing the data center realm – and an increased number of users utilizing cloud services – what will the next-generation data center resemble? According to an article published yesterday by Data Center Knowledge, businesses must evolve around new data center demands, especially with cloud and virtualization becoming the norm for the modern data center.
As new technologies improve density, efficiency and management, there is increased demand to evolve our current thinking. According to a recent Gartner report, cloud computing will become the bulk of new IT spending by 2016. “In India, cloud services revenue is projected to have a five-year projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33.2 percent from 2012 through 2017 across all segments of the cloud computing market…” the report states.
Here, Data Center Knowledge dives into the five ways the next-generation data center will evolve and how your business can evolve with new demands including: software-designed data centers (SDDC’s), multi-layered data center control, the data center operating systems (DCOS), infrastructure agnosticism, and data center automation/robotics.
