The rapid expansion in data center capacities and the subsequent need to control the rack level energy consumption will pave the way for the data center infrastructure solutions market. Considering the introduction level of the market lifecycle of data center infrastructure solutions, this research service aims to present a framework to build a growth strategy that embraces the revenue streams, value proposition, and competitive capabilities in relation to the change in the customer's preferences and expectations from the power vendor regarding the data center power infrastructure. The study period for this research service is from 2013 to 2018.
The demand for total infrastructure solutions depends on data center size. Different sizes of data centers require different infrastructure requirements and vendor collaboration.
Large information technology (IT) participants such as IBM, HP, and Dell have provided infrastructure solutions for many years, and they work as IT contractors, offering both IT and non-IT infrastructure solutions.
These participants have separate teams and capabilities to offer these infrastructure solutions.
Recently, power original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), Emerson Network Power and Schneider Electric, have developed solutions and have worked to move up the value chain.
Typical megawatt data centers struggle with heavy IT traffic; therefore, these data centers demand Tier IV level infrastructure.
Customers usually demand benefits in total cost of ownership (TCO), with a reduction in operating expenditure (OPEX) by % over years.
In the past toyears, the influence of IT managers has dominated in the data center design and construction and has overshadowed the facility managers’ role as their knowledge and exposure placed them in a strategic position in building and devising a total data center solution, including IT, power, and cooling.
