The data center industry is trying to adopt advanced technologies as challenges in the form of increased compute and storage demands reach new heights with every single day. The other key demands include increased reliability of the networks, improved uptime, and cost savings. In such a scenario, trends such as network virtualisation and software-defined data centers (SDDC) have emerged as the most viable solution and service to the existing challenges. Also, edge and hyperscale computing will come into prominence as businesses across industries call for smart computing at the edge for quick decision-making.
Post Brexit, the data center market in the UK and Europe can be expected to undergo significant transformations. In terms of the European data center market, demand for the cloud will continue to hold its ground. Companies in the market have expressed significant interest in the adoption of all-flash storage infrastructure as well.
A plethora of business demands is likely to impact the UK data center market too. With the constantly escalating popularity of IoT, artificial intelligence (AI) and big data, major investments will take place in the UK data center market. What is more, by 2025, the UK-based data centers will be vested with the responsibility to store data worth over $135bn annually.
