Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, during the latter half of 2016, released six data center infrastructure trends to watch in 2017. This year’s trends follow the 2016 data center trends published by Emerson Network Power last year.
“We’re moving further into the cloud era and that creates challenges and opportunities for organizations using and delivering cloud and co-located data center resources,” said Gary Niederpruem, vice president, global marketing and strategy of Vertiv. “In our 2016 trends, we focused on disruptive macro trends, such as evolving cloud models and the role of social responsibility. This year, we’re focusing on the technology advances in critical infrastructure that will enable edge, enterprise, colocation and cloud data centers to adapt to change in 2017 and beyond.”
“Infrastructure technologies and associated services continue to evolve to deliver the speed, security, flexibility and efficiency data center operators require today, whether they are managing a data center that relies on the cloud or developing the capacity to meet the demand for cloud and colocation services,” said Niederpruem. “Taking advantage of these changes requires an infrastructure partner with a deep understanding of all aspects of data center operations and a full range of design, project management and maintenance services.”
Vertiv designs, builds and services critical infrastructure that enables vital applications for data centers, communication networks and commercial and industrial facilities. Formerly Emerson Network Power, Vertiv supports today’s growing mobile and cloud computing markets with a portfolio of power, thermal and infrastructure management solutions including the ASCO®, Chloride®, Liebert®, NetSure™ and Trellis™ brands.
