Server rooms “ill-equipped” to keep pace with technology

16 May 2017

The Green Grid says we’re now seeing data centres equipped with 10-12kW racks to support modern-day requirements, with legacy data centres falling further behind.

The Green Grid says we’re now seeing data centres equipped with 10-12kW racks to support modern-day requirements, with legacy data centres falling further behind.

Enterprise server rooms will be unable to meet the compute power and IT energy efficiencies required to meet the demands of fluctuating technology trends, warns The Green Grid.

It says this will push a higher uptake in hyperscale cloud and colocation facilities. 

The Green Grid is a global consortium of companies, government agencies, educational institutions and individuals dedicated to advancing resource efficiency in IT and data centres.

The Imperial War Museums (IWM) has deployed a large-scale data archiving solution across its sites in England to more reliably store and manage its critical, wartime history data.

The organisation’s museums include IWM London, IWM North, IWM Duxford, the Churchill War Rooms and HMS Belfast.

It houses a collection of more than 10,700,000 items and manages a total of more than 550TB of data, including up to 10TB of new video footage each month.

Exponential data growth is anticipated over time.
