Data centers are HOT. With businesses growing in Asia and more businesses coming to Asia, the data center market is booming. Increasing demands on data centers mean that IT infrastructure managers need to find cost effective ways to build and manage an infrastructure that can quickly scale up and scale down while also support diverse needs.

Tomorrow’s data centers will be virtual environments with much lower power and cooling needs, smaller footprints and operate with cloud-like capabilities and power efficiency levels closer to industry leaders like Google, Amazon and Facebook.

Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) measures the power efficiency of data centers and “State of the Art” PUE is considered 1.2 or below. Google averages 1.16 for its data centers, while industry averages in most countries score corporate data centers at a PUE of around 2.

How can corporate enterprises improve this situation? And do enterprises even need to run a data center like Google?

The impact of cloud has also questioned the model for future data center build out. Should companies build private cloud capabilities or utilize public cloud infrastructures. Exactly what will future data centers look like?

  • Defining real-time capabilities for modern data centers
  • How applications are driving new demands on data centers
