New Generation of Data Centers Designed for Cloud Computing


The global consumption of electricity will double by 2050, so the focus is to reduce by half the CO 2 in the same period. To meet this challenge it is necessary to produce clean energy. The fact that emerge every week a new coal power plant, does predict it will be many years until the power comes only from renewable sources, it is imperative to act.

In 10 years, 80% of data centers in India will be in outsourcing.

The main change in the data center will come from the development of the cloud computing technology, which is not just a technological revolution but a change in the business model for the players IT.

Companies will no longer buy progressively from the pay per use only. This means that data centers in India will be used under the outsourcing, it is estimated that in 10 years they will pass the current 20% to 80%.

The cloud computing will have repercussions throughout the digital landscape in IT operations, business models and value added of each player. But regardless of the model of cloud computing, companies will need to adapt to a very different business model where services on demand, according to the level of service, speed, flexibility, energy efficiency and network access will be prerequisites daily.

Gradually, the IT traditional players will face new competitors offering cloud computing solutions and hosting switching to a business model of cloud computing. Conversely, a hosting company that cannot adapt to the model of cloud computing can find very strong competition in the future.

Thus, hosting companies seeking make the most of cloud computing will have to change their business model “Pay per Use”.

Regardless of the level of service or services of a company that managed hosting is intended to provide in cloud computing, the most appropriate response is to design data centers adapted to the business model of this technology, denser, more flexible and fully automated.

The higher the density the lower the capital, equipment and space required and therefore less energy usage. Let us not forget a simple rule that explains the importance of this new model: the electricity bill of a data center over 10 years is equivalent to the amount spent on its construction.

Data centers in India should be more flexible, because the load is being managed with the most dynamic cloud computing technology, and by using up less energy, infrastructure must constantly adapt to the IT load.

Another priority is to opt for full automation and thus ensure that the infrastructure and energy consumption of the data centers are ideal for the IT load.

Designed for High Density

The trend of the past was considered that the racks would be denser harder to cool, which is incorrect, since a data center can and should be designed for high densities. This not only reduces the Power Usage Effectiveness, but also reduces the need for space and air conditioning equipment, also requiring less hardware.

Thus, savings are made not only in energy but also in materials used for constructing and equipping the building, and this also makes the data center a more environment friendly.

When designing up a data center, the first thing you must decide is the density per rack. The IT manager typically makes this decision is based on current density and the projections by manufacturers of servers.

But, if the manager responsible for the installation also participates in the discussions, both come to the conclusion that higher densities can result in savings by reducing the CAPEX and OPEX. This will improve the simplicity, reliability and energy efficiency, reduce emissions of CO 2 and make the data center actually greener.

When thinking in building a data center for 10 Crore, for example, should be aware that only 2 Crore will be spent on the actual construction and cement, 6 Crore in electricity supply, security in buildings, cooling and only 2 Crore will spent directly into the IT system.

To be competitive in the new business model “Pay per Consume” the cloud computing service providers will have to spread their capital needs, and flexibility, or the “Pay as you Grow” concept solution.
