What are the major threats to the current data center business?


When looking at data center trends, industry experts often focus on the technologies they will adopt in the future, ways to improve data center efficiency, and how to develop better design plans for business plans.

However, they may rarely discuss the threats that data centers face almost every day. The research institute AFCOM's latest data center status survey report lists the biggest threats to data centers and services. Many respondents said that data center security and infrastructure are threatening to keep them out of the night. This survey report shows the following:
• ransomware: 56%;
• External threats (artificial): 48%;
• Advanced persistent threats (IT and/or corporate data theft): 44%;
• Internal threats (artificial): 42%;
• PII lost (personal identification information): 40%.

So what else can worry about data center facility managers is the lack of resources, specifically the lack of capacity in the data center. This means that companies need to increase the cooling and power capabilities of their data centers. As the data center industry continues to evolve and the number and power density of IT equipment continues to grow, facility managers are not only concerned that security will impact the business, but also how to expand data center capacity.

For example, a very large data center has enough space, customer and data center capacity to support business operations. But what are the potential environmental variables? How is cooling and airflow managed? Research firm IDC predicts that in the next two years, 25% of large and medium-sized enterprises will use new IT systems to solve power and cooling facility mismatches in their data centers, and 75% of enterprises will have data center space caps. As a result, data center operators will once again face the key challenge of requiring more innovation while controlling budgets and spending.

The capacity challenges facing data centers will require data center managers to do more with limited budgets and growing demand. This is because the global data center development has not slowed down. According to the latest report of Global Data Center Trends released by Jones Lang LaSalle, the demand for data center space has been growing strongly, and the adoption of cloudy will continue to drive demand growth in the data center market. The emergence of 5G is exacerbated. Many data center vendors are re-engineering their product strategies to meet the growing demand for long-term flexibility while providing the space and power needed for large users.

In other words, some of the biggest threats facing data centers are not just security issues, but also the challenges and risks surrounding data center capacity and resource exhaustion.

So what do you do now?

Need to design and plan your business even more than ever before

Many data center managers are asking the question: [What happens to our business and data center ecosystems after 5 to 10 years?" And these people need to understand that when the data center is running out of space, The user's needs take a lot of time and effort. So why not advance ahead?

The resources of the data center are precious and limited. Experienced data center facility managers are well aware of this. But what they need to know is how to allocate data center resources and make the most of the remaining resources. In addition, assuming that the enterprise's data center capacity utilization rate has reached 70% of capacity, and the operation is normal, there is still room for growth, but as the user's demand grows rapidly, its capacity will soon be in short supply. For example, data center managers know that their company is about to acquire another large organization and take over its data center operations. For them, the good news is that the business is growing, and the bad news is that data center resources may be insufficient. This is not to say that they need to build or acquire another data center. For data center managers, predicting business processes will be challenging. Consistent with business needs will help plan for the future. Data center managers need to better communicate with business leaders who can help data center managers plan for the future of the data center.

The threat to the data center is not just security. As mentioned earlier, the main challenge for hyperscale data center managers is that insufficient data center space is a serious business issue that threatens business operations. In some cases, it does inhibit business growth and is even overtaken by competitors. If data center resources are insufficient to make the cost of payment exceed expectations, then data center managers may be reluctant to take action.

Data center managers may question the capabilities, capabilities, and delivery capabilities of partners and suppliers. They ask some questions: Are you looking to adopt a new cooling solution? How to improve airflow between new racks? Are you evaluating DCIM design? Data center managers can't just listen to marketing or salespeople's advice, but also design and test data centers and ensure delivery. What data center managers need to do is to replace or retrofit data centers that cannot be expanded.

Never be complacent. For data center managers, the current operation of the data center does not mean that it will operate normally in the future. For example, the current airflow solution used in the data center works well, but what if you deploy a high-performance computing platform (HPC)? Or what if you start deploying large-scale merging? Is the cooling solution still effective? Complacency with data center operations will not only affect their resource utilization and overall performance, but may also adversely affect the careers of data center managers.

Keep in mind that security issues are everywhere. The risks faced by data centers depend to a large extent on the ability of the enterprise to support users and business needs, space, power, cooling and many other factors.

In order to stay ahead in the digital market, companies need to adopt new planning methods, which means that they need to think about business and technology development for 5 to 10 years. This not only helps to align with the development of new technologies and solutions, but also better plans and utilizes resources and improves data center design.
