5 Data Center Trends To Look Out For In 2020

A new year heralds new beginnings for various industries. Right from introducing novel ideas to taking it up a notch with existing ones, when it comes to technology, there’s always a lot in store. And with a new decade approaching, experts have already started predicting a number of market trends to expect in data centers. Let’s take a look at 5 of them:

Considerable Growth in Data Centers

Servers are being used for many small-scale and large-scale organizations. It is predicted that 2020 onwards, the server workloads will increase by an annual average rate of 10% while their network bandwidth is likely to rise by 35% and their storage capacity, too, will increase by almost 50%.

Increased Demand for Security

There’s always a demand for specialists in the security aspect of technology. And with improved cybersecurity measures in the pipeline, it is predicted that by the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021, there will be a significant increase in demand for Security Specialists. Moreover, with most companies moving to the cloud, the protection of data has never been more important than now.

More Server Management Outsourcing

In today’s world, the IT teams at most companies are decreasing. This is replaced by a team outsourced to specifically work on and handle any server management related activities. Large organizations have opted for outsourcing as this saves them money and enough time to focus on other pressing issues. The upcoming decade will also witness the rise of organizations that specifically specialize in server management and solutions.

Fewer Errors, Thanks to AI

AI or Artificial Intelligence is touted to make a huge difference in various technological fields, including the cloud and data centers. In the latter, AI is predicted to cater to server management by focusing on automated server performance and security management. Experts also believe that AI can help detect errors, especially when there’s a lot of traffic and data usage involved – in other words, a helping hand in server security management.

More Hyperscale Data Centers

Hyperscale data centers are defined as data centers that are owned by the same company they support. Contrary to regular data centers, hyperscale data centers are more robust and work on scalable applications. According to reports, the number of hyperscale data centers in the world crossed the 500 mark within the third quarter in 2019 and this increase will gradually pick up in the next decade. Currently, some of the biggest hyperscale data centers in the world are owned by Microsoft, Google, IBM, Facebook, Amazon, and so on.
