Panel: As operational costs bite, what is the data center modernization opportunity?

As the number of physical enterprise data centers continue to shrink year-on-year, corporations are keen to optimize the facilities which remain within their existing portfolio. A typical data center can use as much power as a small town, with the systems they house often experiencing low utilization and driving the need for greater efficiency.

With the vast majority of IT systems, HVAC and power couched within the confines of a building’s ageing infrastructure, the challenge to reconfigure floor space, support changing electrical loads, optimize server rooms and embed new mechanical infrastructure whilst live is no small feat.

With the legacy data center under pressure to modernize, this panel will outline the steps needed to ensure the facility can match the speed of innovation whilst delivering the speed, efficiency and resilience on which the IT industry relies.
