Growth Predicted for Green Data Center Market
The green data center market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 27.2 percent to 2019, according to a recent report by RnR Market Research.
The largest share of total green data center in 2014 will be taken by the banking, financial services and insurance verticals, and this status quo will be maintained for the next five years. The findings of the report also predict the year over year growth rate of some of these verticals to be on the higher side throughout the forecasted period.
Telecom and IT verticals are also switching to green data centers and the growth in the telecom and IT industry is said to be driven by the growth in the data center market in the Asia-Pacific region.
The server solutions market is expected to take a major portion of the total green data center solutions market pie, but revenue will also come from other areas such as cooling, power and networking.
Similar to any other business, the green data center market has to face certain challenges such as an increasing cost of electricity and lack of knowledge about the benefits of green data center among its potential customers. RnR Market Research expects some of these challenges to reduce in the coming years.
Designed, managed, and operated on green computing principles, green data centers are sought after by several industry verticals as they are easy on the environment and offer financial benefits to businesses.
A green footprint is what industries look for as they have to deal with many rules and regulations that ask them to reduce their overall carbon footprint or pay heavy fines.Green data center uses less energy and space but provides all the features and full capability of a traditional data center. These types of centers make efficient use of power so that the facility runs cost-effectively.

As the need to balance current and future IT requirements against resource consumption becomes more urgent, the data center industry increasingly views capacity planning as a way of achieving a critical component to planning a new build or retrofit. Data center capacity planning can be a complex undertaking with far-reaching strategic and operational implications. DCD Intelligence has therefore compiled this White Paper in order to share some industry insights and lessons on the practical steps that are needed to develop a successful power and capacity planning strategy.[Read More]
Server Technology had the recent opportunity, along with other partner companies, to participate in discussions across the globe with data center IT and facility managers as part of a road show seminar: Data Center Energy and Operational Efficiency.[Read More]
The demand for more power in the computer cabinet has led many data centers to upgrade to three phase power distribution. Proper three phase power distribution has traditionally meant dividing up power up into multiple branches within the rack PDU (Power Distribution Unit). In this paper we will explore the advantages of a new, less common approach to PDU design by means of alternating each phase on a per-receptacle basis instead of a per branch basis.[Read More]
Increasing powering and cooling demands within the data center have been the topics of choice for Data Center (DC) and Facility Managers for several years now. Increased power demands are a result of the need for more compute power and higher density devices have resulted. These high density installations include stacks and stacks of servers and the trend of implementing blade servers within these server "farms." Cooling problems are a direct result of the increased power demands based on the simple fact that more power increases the demand for cooling.[Read More]
