What’s New for Data Center World 2021?
Changes in data center capacity and design that were brought about during the upheaval of 2020 have led to questions about the optimal data center designs for 2021 and beyond. It’s no longer possible to effectively manage a data center without an intimate understanding of advancements in cloud platforms, co-location, edge computing, facilities management, and environmental issues. In fact, the data center is experiencing a transition in definition, where the mere question “what is the data center” is being explored amid changes to its physical makeup.
