Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Green Data Center market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global green data center market: Cisco Systems, Dell, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Rittal, Schneider Electric, and Vertiv.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3M, ABB, Airedale Air Conditioning, CommScope (iTRACS), Delta Power Solutions (Delta Electronics), Eaton, Fujitsu, Green Revolution Cooling, Huawei, Nlyte Software, Panduit, Siemens, STULZ, Sunbird Software, and Vigilent.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing water consumption by data center. WUE metrics help monitor the water consumption of data centers for cooling purposes. The demand for energy-efficient cooling solutions has increased, driven by their ability to balance water consumption while simultaneously achieving a better WUE rating.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is need for energy-efficient infrastructure. Data center vendors have experienced several innovations over the past decade regarding the adoption of efficient infrastructure. Data center servers earlier used to consume around 50-80W, but now, the average power consumed by servers is 350W. In terms of IT infrastructure, the adoption of density-optimized server and storage infrastructure is gaining increased traction.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is cost of building green data center. There are many leading organizations in the Americas like Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Intel, and Apple, which already have established data centers that are powered using renewable energy sources. There are several data centers in the US that are currently under operation consuming gigawatts of electricity and emitting millions of tons of carbon every year.
