The data center of the future has now arrived and we see significant improvements in power distribution, cooling efficiency and overall environmental impact.
All this is good news for companies that wish to reduce their carbon footprint and reduce their electricity bill at the end of each month. Today’s data center managers are under greater pressures to maintain this innovative way to keep infrastructure cool and running 99.999% of the time. They are still the gatekeepers to the data center but are now beginning to refuse entry to infrastructure that is not “efficient”. Clearly, modern servers, storage and networking equipment are far superior to legacy equipment; however, many are now concerned by the utilization of such devices. No data center today would consider the intake of new servers that are not highly virtualized.
