Everyone wants to have it all, and in the technology and telecom world, data center customers are no exception. The industry has been seeking a new breed of facility that can meet a host of seemingly irreconcilable demands for sustainability, high-performance IT solutions, scalability and more. It turns out that Pittsburgh might be the birthplace for this next generation of digitally transformative data centers.
On the whole, data centers and their customers are seeking ways to meet five pressing mandates:
- Addressing climate change with sustainable, energy-efficient data center operations
- Migrating to the edge to satisfy needs for highly available, accessible and fast-moving decentralized platforms
- Accelerating IT outsourcing for greater ease and transitions to OPEX spending
- Transitioning to a more intelligent factory-built modular approach to create buildings that gain efficiencies and feature seamless expansions
- Meeting the burgeoning need for High-Performance Computing platforms capable of supporting next-gen use cases
That’s a lot to ask of a data center, even if they are highly complex and highly capable environments. But now, with this latest announcement, it’s time to believe that data center consumers really can have it all.
