The Data Center: Now and in the Future

Is Your Data Center Ready for WHAT'S NEXT? 2012 2020 1.5x electricity used by the city of New York Global Data Center Power Growth 6х the electricity used by the city of New York Global Footprint Physical & Virtual Ďata Centers 18 Million Seruers 122 Million Seruers $50 Billion Global Spending on Data Center Construction $78 Billion By 2020, data centers will produce 359 megatons of co2 = 48% U.S. cars To put it into perspective... When measured in 2006, the number of motor vehicles registered in the United States: 244.2 million THE GROWTH OF DATA The SIze of the digital world is predicted to continue to increase by a factor of 1.2 You в Tube ZB 44 We haue generated 1.2 zettabytes (ZB) of digital data. This includes tweets, YouTube uideos, Facebook status updates, iTunes downloads, emails and other data transfers. 75 billion by 2020 This year, mankind will create 1.2 trillion gigabytes (GB) of data, equiualent to 75 billion 16 GB iPods. That's more than enough for every person on earth to own 10 iPods. ZB (Zettabyte) > GB (Cigabyte) > MB (Megabyte) MYHRISIER The Cooling Myth Most data centers operate in a temperature range between 68 and 72° Fahrenheit, and some are as cold as 55°F. One of the simplest ways to saue energy in a data center is to raise the temperature. You can raise the cold aisle of a data center to 80°F or higher.
