The top three emerging market trends driving the data center construction market in US according to Technavio research analysts are:
- Increase in the purchase of renewable energy sources
- Growing need for edge data center facilities
- Escalating need for DCIM and automation
Increase in the purchase of renewable energy sources
The increasing consumption of electricity by data centers across the globe is creating awareness among enterprises to operate green data centers that are powered by renewable energy sources. Advanced designs and strategies are implemented in data centers to enhance their operational performance. The use of renewable energy sources, energy-efficient infrastructure, and waste recycling are some of the methods implemented in green data centers. Most of the mega data centers are being powered by renewable sources of energy such as wind energy and solar panels. Google is planning to power its entire data center operations using renewable power by 2017, and Microsoft has purchased more than 500 MW of renewable power in the US in 2016.
Growing need for edge data center facilities
Edge data centers enable a cache of the content that can be retrieved locally. These edge facilities are connected to the large facilities across the US to facilitate faster delivery of content with reduced latency. The amount of data generated is growing enormously while online video streaming and social networking contribute to the massive data traffic. To provide high-quality services, many enterprises are required to establish data centers close to the customers to reduce latency. Growth in these media will also increase the demand for the data center from ISPs, CSPs, and others. Most of the enterprises operating out of one data center per country will move closer to their customers by establishing data centers in interior locations using the help of local carrier providers.
“These edge facilities will vary in size based on local requirements and will contribute heavily to the market growth during the forecast period,” says Abhishek.
Escalating need for DCIM and automation
Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) facilitates the management of the entire data center facility using remote software. Most of the modern infrastructure offered by the vendors in the market enable remote monitoring features. However, these state-of-art technologies involve higher CAPEX compared to traditional systems. The growing concerns over energy consumption and carbon emission by data center facilities in the US have made the use of DCIM software a mandatory requirement for all the data center operations.
For facilities such as colocation data centers, DCIM will help in attaining certification and attract customers. All infrastructure vendors are increasingly focusing on providing DCIM systems to remotely monitor and manage the power consumption, temperature, and humidity inside their data centers. Adoption of these advanced systems in data centers will boost the growth in the market during the forecast period.
