Data centre is the physical entity that an organization uses to store the data, information and software which they use to run their industry. The need for a data centre for companies is not a new concept, because the introduction of electronic media and basic computers in the companies In the old era used to keep their records and important documents in a well designed room.
The data centres are important to run a business or enterprise to perform and support suitable activities like Email and file sharing, Application and software, Enterprise resource planning and database, Big data calculation, Communication and other services.
Important components of that data centre includes switches, firewall, routers, storage systems, server, and cooling systems. The location of the data centre is also an important aspect while deciding. The evolution of big data centres came in the late 90s, after that the number of data centres has continuously increased as the private as well as the government agencies both started to invest and use the data centre for personal or public use.
Adopted standards for design and infrastructure of data centres comes under below mentioned category;
Tier 1: Basic site infrastructure
It has single-capacity components and a single, no redundant distribution path, provides limited protection in physical events
Tier 2: Redundant-capacity component site infrastructure
It has redundant-capacity components and a single, no redundant distribution path.
Tier 3: Concurrently maintainable site infrastructure
This data center protects against almost all physical events, providing redundant-capacity components and multiple independent distribution paths. Each component can be removed or replaced without disrupting services to end users.
Tier 4: Fault-tolerant site infrastructure
This data center provides the highest levels of fault tolerance and redundancy. Redundant-capacity components and multiple independent distribution paths enable concurrent maintainability and one fault anywhere in the installation without causing downtime.
The European Data centre market consists of IT, Mechanical, electrical infrastructure providers. Companies like ABB, Eaton, and Schneider are major infrastructure players. According to the report of Uptime institute, there are almost 217 data centres distributed across Europe (29 countries) which include local as well as global players that provide these services. Around 13 facilities in Europe are tier III certified.
The data centre in western Europe typically uses a free cooling system, which includes evaporative cooling, adiabatic cooling, and free cooling chiller system also. This region has the most active market for data centre construction. The introduction of cloud storage systems has put the pressure on the data centre industries to increase the capacity of data centres that not only include the storage capacity but also includes space needed, cooling system, protection of client’s data, quick response periodic maintenance, etc.
The inconvenient truth is that data centres are huge consumers of power – but equally inconvenient is the fact that without them, we would not be enjoying – relying on – the benefits of 5G, e-commerce, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence (machine learning) and virtual reality. Given, therefore, that data centres are here to stay, it’s up to the companies – the facilities’ owners and operators – to make provision to power them sustainably, cleanly and with least impact on the grid.
As demand for data processing, management and storage facilities continues to increase, driven by society’s increasing reliance on tech and its application in everyday life, data centre operators must focus on, and facilitate, the provision of clean and sustainable power to their facilities.
Building suitable facilities to adequately address the regulations governing the ultra-high security solutions should involve significant investment and expertise along with certified space available in its sustainable data centre campuses, plus proven and certified solutions.
Many companies have augmented its already high security solutions to include type-approved self-contained security cage modules where the entire infrastructure including generator, dedicated independent power feed, UPS and cooling systems are encapsulated to meet the high client demands.
The COVID somehow showed the need of having more data centres across the globe. Due to lockdown the sudden increase in traffic has led the owners to realize that the data centres requirement will always increase in the coming future. Though the corona virus has shown some drawback of existing centres that may be overcome in new installed systems.
The pandemic has made the online world even more valuable. The internet has become a lifeline for many businesses, and an outlet for individuals forced to self-isolate at home.
Providers have experienced the same restrictions as other businesses around the world: Their staff and customers on site face the same risks, and they are also part of wider supply chains, from those that deliver customers servers impacting demand and rollouts, to mechanical and equipment manufacturers reliant upon cross-border regional and inter-regional access.
Data centres adapted and – mostly – thrived in the pandemic Some projects were pushed back
Throughout 2020, companies have essentially seen the impact of Covid-19 on the industry. The figures for supply growth and take-up still look positive across the Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris markets (and interest is also growing across second-tier locations) but some projects have been pushed back. Lock-down has meant restrictions in some locations in the number of construction staff allowed on site, customer site visits as well as operational team access. The industry has done a stellar job at keeping the lights on but has felt some challenges around supply. We don’t foresee this being a long-term challenge. Indeed, most projects that were shifted were only pushed back by a quarter or two at most.
Through Q2 of 2021, we saw the carrier-neutral wholesale and retail colocation market across Europe grow to 1,735 MW of supply, up 19 percent on the same quarter last year. Only about 355MW of this is available today with the market ending Q2 with around 20.5 percent vacancy.
The EU data centre market is estimated to be US $ XX Billion in 2020 and expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% by 2026. The key player of data centre business in Europe has signed an agreement to make their facility carbon neutral via a 100% renewable energy source by 2030. According to the Climate neutral data centre pact, almost 75% of energy supplied to data centres are renewable energy source or carbon free energy by 2025 end, then in the second phase it will be 100% renewable energy source.
During pandemic the huge demand of data centre originated as the data to be used and storage is increased suddenly, the sudden rise in online traffic by the user has increased, the demand of cloud storage has increased as well, these are the key indicator that shows that the need of data centre is important result in steady growth and increase in level of investment in this market.
The data centre has adopted the advanced, innovative and efficient cooling system that is the basic need to run the data centre in proper manner. The server and cloud system has seen strong growth in the coming year. The demand of UPS has increased lead to adoption of lithium – ion UPS systems due to their advantages. The few factors may contribute in the growth of data centre across the globe;
The main focus to drive the data centre market is to prevent something from happening like failure of a cooling system, breaching the firewall by hackers. TO overcome this problem companies like Huawei, International Business Machine(IBM), Eaton Corporation, Bladeroom, Cannon Technologies Ltd., Commscope Inc., Dell Inc., Flexenclosure AB, Schneider Electric, HPE Company.
DigiPlex, a leading Nordic developer and operator of scalable, secure and sustainable data centres, has agreed to be acquired by affiliates of IPI Partners, LLC, a global investment platform focused exclusively on data centres and other technology and connectivity-related real assets
