Providing organizations with products and services more effectively than ever before, data center technology takes a leap.
FREMONT, CA: Modern facilities are wonders of the computing technology, that features the state-of-the-art high-density servers and revolutionizing cooling systems. Colocation data centers continue to drive innovation to offer the customers with better customized solutions for their networking and computing challenges. Keeping up with the next generation of data center trends help companies to identify which services are the right for the customers and study how the data centers can enhance their businesses. Here are some trends in the data center that every enterprise should look forward to.
The most exciting data center trend over the last decade has been the enterprises opting for software-defined infrastructures. Instead of serving as a storehouse for the data, a software-defined data center (SDDC) virtualizes the computing and the storage power, which is available through servers into software form, which is then bundled and sold to customers. This helps the users to install and manage their services on the same physical server. Each server is different from other servers, ensuring privacy and flexibility. Since the customers are purchasing the virtualized assets in software-defined infrastructure, it is very easy to scale these assets, tailor services to meet customer needs or relocate them to take advantage of the data center's services.
The colocation data center provides the customers with tools to manage and oversee their infrastructure that is far beyond anything they can afford to replace in their own private facility. From business intelligence software, which gives unparalleled visibility into the actual usage patterns of their network to robust asset tracking and 24x7x365 remote hands support, colocation provides companies with the resources to compete directly with their bigger, more resourceful competitors.
Edge computing engineers widened the reach of a typical cloud network by running the key processing functions to the edge of the network, nearer to where the data was gathered. By processing the data closer to the edge of the network where it’s been collected, edge computing greatly increases the speed and responsiveness. The edge data center is used to extend the network reach and thereby increase the speed. The edge data center provides powerful processing resources that can handle the tasks too big for the Internet of things devices to handle, but not that large enough to send back to the center of the network.
