This Year and the Next in the Data Center
The year is drawing to a close and things are changing in the data center world. The green revolution is taking a firmer hold by the day and the advent of cloud computing is bound to have long-lasting repercussions. As data centers draw more and more media attention for the amount of energy they require, innovation in providing them with that power is increasing in exciting ways… but what will be next?
It’s clear that the cloud is becoming more and more important and widespread. But what does its future hold? The prevailing opinion seems to be that it has a lot of potential, but is underdeveloped. We’ll see what new developments 2010 brings on that front.
Also exciting is what new energy-efficient cooling solutions IT professionals will develop in the coming months. We’ve introduced the Green Gorilla to keep an eye out for this kind of development, as he will continue to do this coming year. From using outside air to cool servers to hot-aisle/cold-aisle containment, data center energy efficiency is becoming more and more attainable. We look forward to the new technology the new decade will bring.
