Data Center Technology Headed for Obsolescence
I’ve seen a couple pieces like this one from EnterpriseStorageForum.com, and it’s an interesting topic. What normal, time-honored things often seen in a data center are on their way out?
This particular article suggests raised floors are becoming less and less viable in data center planning because installing them is not cost-effective and they’re poorly adapted for heat redistribution.
Other interesting things to see the end of which it mentions would be Excel as a management tool, and Windows XP and Vista, in general. I pretty much hate all three personally, and it’s kinda nice to think of a brighter future without them. What’s next, though? That’s always harder to predict.
Some hardware obviously headed for a makeover includes tape drives, hard disk drives, and cathode ray tubes. Check out more at EnterpriseStorageForum.com, and let us know over here what you think has a rocky future in the data center world.
