PRESS RELEASE: London, United Kingdom – Experts at Vertiv, a global provider of IT infrastructure and continuity solutions. have identified five emerging data centre trends for 2020. These findings have been released this week as follows:
Organisations will increasingly forego the enterprise-or-cloud debate that dominated C-level conversations in recent years in favour of hybrid architectures that incorporate public and private cloud models and edge assets around a reconfigured core. This evolving approach to managing data and computing resources is just one of five emerging 2020 trends.
Trending hybrid architectures will allow organisations to maintain control of sensitive data while still meeting soaring demands for more capacity and increased computing capabilities closer to the consumer. As connectivity and availability become conjoined concepts in this new data ecosystem, an increasing premium will be placed on seamless communication from core to cloud to edge.
“A new equilibrium is emerging in the data centre space as the industry wrestles with capacity challenges and advanced applications that are forcing significant changes to data centres of all shapes and sizes,” said Vertiv CEO Rob Johnson. “At the same time, speed of deployment is increasingly becoming a tipping point in technology decisions and will likely shape investment and innovation in the space as we head into 2020. This will manifest itself in many ways, but the message to data centre equipment providers is clear: The status quo is not acceptable.”
