Let’s take a look at some of the data center trends that your organization needs to be watching out for in 2020. From a stronger emphasis on sustainability to high deployment speeds and ever-growing security, data centers are a unique resource for your enterprise’s IT operations.

As you know, a data center is a facility that stores, manages and distributes data. It’s also responsible for the security of the premises of the center. Data centers need to be reliable, as well as secure because they house critical systems and vital confidential information for a wide range of clients. However, it’s obvious that security is one of the biggest drivers in running a data center. Combining strong security, focusing on greener data centers and the fastest deployment speeds possible is a recipe for data center success.

Curious to learn more about upcoming data center trends for 2020? Let’s dive straight in.

Greener, Cleaner Data Centers

One trend that we will be seeing more of in data centers is a stronger focus on energy efficiency and sustainability in 2020. For instance, our data centers in Canada use environmentally friendly hydroelectric power and benefit from an abundance of free cooling. We are conscious of the most up to date sustainable practices and work to ensure that data center waste is at a minimum while providing users with a better IT footprint. When clean and reliable energy works towards providing you with high performance and maximum flexibility, both you and the planet win. 

Best In Class Security 

Another trend that isn’t going out of style anytime soon is a strong security-first approach. Data centers need to put data protection at the front and center of their strategy. Our data centers have security guards onsite 24/7 and constant HD monitoring to protect your data. You can expect in-depth network security with our SSAE-16 facility. It also undergoes yearly SOC Type 2 audits. Combine that with dual-factor identification with biometric scanners and card readers throughout the perimeter of the facilities and you know that you can rest easy knowing that your data is secure. For the extra cautious, we even offer caged options for ultimate peace of mind. 

Fast Deployment Speed

Finally, high-density power never goes out of style. With fast deployment speed and reliability at their very core, data centers need to keep up with the latest innovations to stay in the game. Our data centers have an average density of 6kw per cabinet. We also have deployment speeds of 1-3 MW less than 150 days or 20 RACKS in less than 24 hours. The best power circuits make all the difference with 3 phase power delivery with 35 usable kW. This trend is a powerhouse for upscaling and growth in a controlled way that suits your needs.
