IT scalability as a competitive advantage
While the global epidemic is on the decline, it is not delaying the large-scale digitization of data, often referred to as digital transformation, and challenges large companies and government agencies looking to develop new digital strategies. to augment. Since 2016, the phenomenon of digital transformation has generated 90% of global data, and this astonishing growth shows no signs of slowing down.
Digital transformation is rapidly increasing the need for larger technology stacks to store, compute, analyze and connect data. All of this requires more power, as evidenced by Evaluate the reportPredicts that the global electricity data center market will grow by 43%, from $ 15 billion in 2020 to $ 21.5 billion by 2026.
This increase in energy demand is proportional to the increase in data center space and connectivity required to accommodate the growing computing and storage environment of colocation data centers.
The bigger the better
As a result, organizational extensions that allow you to easily add or remove compute and storage resources in different data centers and geographies have become a major competitive advantage.
For on-premises data centers, scaling requires purchasing more power and building more space. It’s expensive, time consuming and difficult to manage. As a result, large enterprises and government agencies are choosing to move from on-premises data centers to large modern third-party data centers that offer a flexible and scalable data platform to handle data spikes.
according to IDC survey“72% of those surveyed said that the use of co-location will increase over the next 12 months. This is about meeting the new standards that are forming for business computing.
Most on-premises data centers are relatively small, but the average multi-tenant data center takes up about 100,000 square feet of space. A large scale of over one million square feet with a handful of vendors using innovative service delivery platforms that leverage sufficient power, robust connectivity and cutting-edge technology to optimize performance. digital infrastructure of client companies. We manage various facilities.
Deployment of corporate digital infrastructure is expanding and starting to be junior Hyperscale-Similar requirements for scalable space, power and advanced connectivity ecosystems across multiple data centers and multiple markets.
QTS continues to see a significant increase in requests for proposals from companies across all industries whose demands are increasing rapidly. What used to be a normal business requirement for a 250-500 KW environment is now a requirement for multi-megawatt, multi-site, multi-geographic engagement.
As a result, the number of data center vendors capable of meeting growing business demands for scalable space, power, and robust connectivity is declining. Competition for large business transactions due to overly stringent requirements, both for the physical extensions of the data center (power, space, connectivity), as well as the ability to provide data center services across multiple sites and geographic areas. Cannot be done.
Additionally, as businesses consolidate into larger multi-tenant data centers, the total number of on-premises data centers may decrease, but overall data center growth forecasts increase. Gartner forecast End-user spending on global data center infrastructure in the United States is expected to increase 6% from 2020 to reach $ 200 billion in 2021.
New new creative requirements
As the size of data center deployment and investments increase, the selection of data center vendors becomes a much more scrutinized process by stakeholders. Therefore, today’s data centers must demonstrate that they can deliver a flawless business experience, from content to end users in an ever-changing environment. Buyers of strategic businesses recognize that if they can grow beyond their initial deployment, they are unlikely to be successful. Only by having a scalable data center platform can an organization prepare for the inevitable increase in data.
The ideal colocation data center provider delivers a cloud-like experience for scalability. With enough space, power, connectivity, and cutting-edge technologies, businesses can focus on executing their digital strategies rather than trying to recreate the cost and expertise benefits of major operators. data entry. The best vendors work together to understand your digital strategy and evolve your environment accordingly to ensure you always have enough resources without over-provisioning or wasting your IT budget.
The growing need for scalability is a direct result of digital transformation and the increasing exponential growth of large amounts of data. QTS’s experience with large corporations, hyperscales, and government agencies has given us a unique perspective on serving this new dynamic. With large-scale data centers in all major US markets, it can support maximum space and power requirements. It is also unique in its commitment to providing and developing a connected ecosystem for all buildings in all regions. This equates to a combination of large-scale data center infrastructure and the world’s largest cloud providers, the world’s largest IP networks, Internet exchanges, fiber providers, various transport paths, as well. as access and connectivity to submarine cables.
