New York, New York (October 12, 2015) The modern data center has changed far beyond the standard physical server. Now, many organizations are working with advanced networking components, new cloud computing platforms, site-to-site replication requirements, and greater amounts of uptime requirements. Although many of these technologies have created an agile and much more efficient data center – there have been challenges during the growth process. With the introduction of all these new pieces into the data center, organizations quickly found themselves having to manage numerous different components just to stay afloat.
The traditional data center model is like the old cable TV and music models, which forced you to buy and pay for all 189 channels and all ten songs, even if you only wanted a few. The evolved data center model, in contrast, is like the new TV and music models – you only buy the show or the song you want. Where the traditional colocation model locks you into long-term contracts for power you may not use, the evolved pay-for-use model eliminates the need to forecast IT demand and provides control over capacity. As a result, you reduce waste and align your data center to the needs of your business.
In this whitepaper from Aligned Data Centers, we learn about the three big trends which have shaped the recent IT ecosystem. These include:
- A sea of change in how we consume and pay for things
- Rising data center infrastructure and energy costs and falling IT infrastructure costs
- Exponentially increasing demand for IT capacity
And yet – many of today’s data center environments, seen as the foundation for our digital world, are having challenges evolving to the next-gen state. Fortunately – there’s good news.
