Data Centers are turning out to be increasingly important in today's connected world

The future of data centers looks very exciting. Data Centers are turning out to be increasingly important in today's connected world as we can store and process a lot of consumer and commercial data. Data centers seem to be either becoming huge or very small. In general, marketing cloud storage and cloud computing services are likely to increase the profit margins and favor the large players. There is an increasing need for superior Data center competence as we are more dependent on cloud-based applications and huge Data center services.

The companies will view data as a resource to be extracted for insight, innovation and opportunities are extracted from the future Data centers. The future Data centers can be used as infrastructure as a service (IaaS) with pay-per-use model. It will help companies to meet the business requirements and to control the cost, scalability and service level objectives. This helps the businesses in paying only for what they use.

The Organizations needs to change their strategies in order to store, protect and manage their data and get prepared for the Data center of the future.

To reach out there, the IT companies must move their Data center from a physical infrastructure which is used to store the data with independently managed devices to a virtualized based infrastructure services. This move will help the organizations to strategize the decisions and gain competitive advantages.

The Evolution of the Data center
Previously, the Data centers were like cost centers that support businesses to store the information whereas, now to maintain the huge data, IT has simply added servers and network resources as per the business need. We see a huge growth getting increased in data at 40% to 60% annually and storing these files and their dependencies are becoming a tough task for the organizations.

To maintain the data and to keep the data safe, the organizations are using cloud computing as it will help to control the data flood and turn it into actionable insights which will position your business to drive innovation. Through cloud computing, you can easily consolidate the data and improve your business agility and make your applications and services available to millions of users.

Data Centers of Tomorrow
The Data centers of the future will invent the trend and experience a fundamental shift to a managed platform which is built on a virtualized and automated infrastructure. In the future Data centers, IT will provide data from a cost to service level standpoint and deliver the information and services that meet your business needs.

The future Data centers will be built upon a virtualized pool of resources. This means all the resources will be basically stateless and it doesn't matter where they are. In this future Data center, the information will be separated from the application that has created it so that a wide range of applications can be used effectively. You can deliver the data that is accessible anywhere any time through Convergence and Virtualization. This can be empowered with an automated and managed approach. With Convergence and Virtualization, you can make your businesses realize higher ROI through lesser capital and functioning expenses. You will also be able to meet rigorous SLA requirements of performance, volume and data protection.

The Data center of the future will depend on reflective automation and centralized management in order to meet the cloud user's needs for high performance, availability, and productivity.

Conclusion
The blend of convergence, virtualization, and automation along with the centralized management will not only allow businesses to separate physical resources but also help to operate the architecture from larger to higher level systems. This type of business model will help in reducing the Data center costs and gain the most value and margin from their cloud investments. The Data centers future is going to be more exciting and interesting as organizations are going to gain popularity in next coming 5 to 10 years.
