Analyst Report – 2016 Datacenter Technology Trends

December 2, 2015 No Comments

Source: 451 Global Digital Infrastructure Report

Widespread change will be disrupting the datacenter industry during 2016 – everything from software and services to equipment suppliers.

First, there will likely be fewer enterprise datacenters in 2016 and beyond, as many smaller and regional facilities consolidate into centralized ‘premium’ sites. And even as capacity is outsourced to public cloud datacenters, enterprises will increasingly turn to colocation and hosting providers.

There will also be rising interest in prefabricated modular datacenters (PFMs) across all sectors of the market. (The trend towards PFMs was covered in a recent 451 Alliance Global Infrastructure Trends newsletter article: Prefabricated Datacenters on the Rise.)

Regardless of design, during 2016 datacenters will become far more automated within on-premises, off-premises, and hybrid environments. And as more and more operators realize the need for integrated management tools, it will drive up demand for datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) software as well.

This report examines five key trends we see shaping datacenter technologies for the coming year:

1. DCIM Will Move Further Up the IT Stack
2. Hyperscales Will Disrupt the Status Quo
3. Cloud Will Drive Technical and Business Change
4. Prefabricated Datacenters Will Come of Age
5. Datacenters Will Evolve from Consumers to Active Energy Players
