The Internet of Things (IoT) has redefined the way we consume infotainment, and how we live our life day-to-day. Whether it is streaming a video, paying bills, or planning your next vacation, data is the source of these transactions. In short, we need data instantaneously which has made it imperative to have consistently reliable data centers.
Statista, the statistics portal that sources from 18,000 sources on an average, reported a mind-boggling growth of mobile users worldwide. The number of smartphone users is projected to grow from 1.5 billion in 2014 to five billion by 2019. That is over 36 percent of the world projected to use a smartphone! This catapults data consumption and the dependence on data centers into a much higher league.
To keep up with the demand and to stay abreast of new technologies, many companies are investing heavily into the lifeline of their businesses and are turning to data center experts for cost effective and scalable solutions. One solution that has been used by big data companies since 2009, are Modular Data Center’s (MDC). Data Center Knowledge defines Modular Data Centers as, “An approach to data center design that implies either a prefabricated data center module or a deployment method for delivering data center infrastructure in a modular, quick and flexible method.”
Major forces driving the flexible data center market include:
- The surge in demand for low Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE)
- The need to reduce operational expenditure
- The need for scalability
- The ease in operations and maintenance
The modular data center market is growing rapidly because of the increasing number of users opting for high-performance and energy efficient data centers. According to the research agency Markets and Markets, the worldwide market for plug-and-play data centers and related equipment will grow from $8.37 billion in 2015 to $35.11 billion by 2020. North America will be the largest modular data center market in terms of size, while Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to emerge as a high-growth market.
