10 Most Innovative Data Center Companies to Watch
We were all hit by the pandemic-driven lockdown for nearly two years, but the blurry lines started becoming clearer as we came closer to 2022. The lockdown taught us more than ever the world’s dependability on data centers to keep things running backend. Whether at home or in the office, every business worldwide runs on the cloud and virtual servers, making it imperative to have physical data centers running better than before.
Optimally functioning data centers are more than only staying in touch with the day-to-day functionalities. It is about optimizing your network and future-proofing operations against unexpected and expected forces. If we look at the broader picture, the market is set to grow at a CAGR of nearly 10.5% between 2021 – 2030, with over $517 billion in valuation by 2030.
Modern-day businesses require 100% scalability and reliability to survive. The increasing business demand has led to a steady increase in data centers worldwide. Data centers are designed to centralize shared IT operations and equipment and enable a robust digital infrastructure. Amid increasing demand to set up data centers, real estate investment in data center construction is the hottest pick in the US. With the advancement in multi-cloud computing, the shift from on-premises setups to the virtual network-based data center is driving the global data-center growth trajectory.
The entire data center market is categorized and fragmented into hyper-scale, colocation, edge, and others.
