As data continues to grow along with infrastructure costs, enterprises will no doubt look to adopt Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) for its more flexible and responsive data centre architecture.
“Rapid virtualization through the adoption of cloud and IoT networks is quickly pushing out the use of physical data centres. This is moving data centres towards a transformation that changes the infrastructure from hardware to a software platform, giving rise to software defined data centres (SDDC),” says Anjani Kommisetti, Country Manager, India & SAARC, Raritan & ServerTech.
According to Anjani, the following trends will be seen in the datacenter space –
• Micro Data Centers–Rise of IoT and big data has increased the need for the micro data center environment. These are small and self-contained data centers that are designed to manage wok offloaded from a larger data center as they contain the right infrastructure that is needed for smooth IT functionality.
• More data centers in tier 2 cities– Tier 2 cities by large remain untapped markets. Now businesses have started to realise the potential these cities hold in terms of costs, being closer to larger consumers, etc. Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Jaipur, Bhopal, Kochi are some of the cities that are coming up as preferred locations for setting up data centers.
• Way to Green Data Centers with DCIM solutions –Hyperscale data center construction has dominated the data center industry in 2019 and provided enterprises with an opportunity to adopt Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solutions, befitting their modern business and environment. With the help of DCIM solutions, 2020 will see enterprises designing smart data centers enabling operators to integrate proactive sustainability and efficiency measures.
