Gaining a Competitive Edge

How to make your colocation data centre more competitive through standardisation and modularisation.



The data centre industry is experiencing unprecedented growth. There are currently 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created each day. With the Internet of Things (IoT), this growth is accelerating so rapidly that, it was estimated that by the year 2020, IoT will comprise more than 30 billion connected devices.

So, how can today’s colocation companies remain competitive? How can we ensure the integrity of our data centre network as contractors are pushed to complete projects in record time? How can colocation data centres be built efficiently and safely while meeting enterprise demand?

This White Paper from ABB, explores the keys trends which focus on enabling simpler and faster colocation data centre deployments and expansions to future proof and maintain quality deployments such as:

  • Modularisation
  • Utilisation
  • Digitalisation
  • Sizing of Systems


In conclusion, this paper suggests that the need for speed will no doubt continue to shape colocation data centre development. To stay ahead of the curve, operators need to review alternative options in the design, build and management of colocation projects. Changing the mind set and switching up their design and build strategy to adopt a holistic and modular approach can reduce time to market, maximise customer value and improve ROI.
