Scalability to be the key for future data centers?

10/30/2012 | Data centers |

With technological developments evolving all the time, you may have noticed recently that the amount of information your business is dealing with is growing at a fast rate. In fact, developments such as big data are a key priority for firms at the current time. But this may be putting extra strain on your data center solutions, so this is something you'll have to manage carefully.

This has been highlighted by new research published this week by Cable & Wireless Worldwide, which found many companies are struggling to cope with the new networking environment seen today. It revealed 55% of senior IT decision-makers it quizzed believe their data center capacity requirements will increase significantly over the next two years due to the huge influx of extra information that needs to be stored and processed. However, the reality may be even more dramatic, as many respondents stated estimates for future capacity haven't adequately taken into account emerging trends such as big data. Those firms that are taking steps to manage this suggested to Cable & Wireless that their requirements are set to rise by up to 50%.

Therefore, if your business is likely to be one of those seeing such increases, it could be essential for you to have dedicated servers that can be scaled up to meet these demands. If you choose as a provider for these items, you're not locked in to a long-term contracts and you can also upgrade your server at any time, without facing the prospect of data loss, downtime or having to renumber your IP addresses. Because it's so hard to predict exactly what a business' future data center requirements will be, this flexibility can be a huge benefit to a company, as it gives you the ability to ensure you're able to meet whatever challenges you might face in the coming years.

Cable & Wireless observed that as firms look to offer a more personalised service to customers, this will inevitably lead to larger data requirements. However, it noted that if enterprises don't have a firm grasp of what this means for their network infrastructure, they run a "real risk of losing control of operational costs".
