The world-wide appetite for data is rapidly increasing. Annual data creation is predicted to increase 50-fold from 2010 to 2020, which equals 40 zettabytes (one sextillion bytes of data) per year in 2020.
This rapid expansion in data demand will likely stretch your data center’s capacity limits. But in response, you know that you could easily over build and get stuck with costly, unused capacity. The following paper by ABB gives you sustainable strategies for approaching capacity expansion that minimize risk, are environmentally friendly and can actually help your bottom.
The strategies include green construction practices, hardware related solutions like eco-friendly UPS, and automation technologies like DCIM (data center infrastructure management).
