Data center design: Key market research findings

  • Development of green data centers
  • Growing importance of data center availability

Technavio has released a new market research report on the global data center design market, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19% between 2016 and 2020. Data center design plays a vital role in business continuity, owing to burgeoning number of Internet users and growing adoption of cloud services, IoT, and big data analytics.  The Americas is the leading market in data center construction, accounting for 46% of the total market share. Much of this region’s growth comes from innovations in data center design to improve the efficiency of the facilities and deliver high availability services with better performance, flexibility, and scalability.

The new industry research report from Technavio discusses in detail the key drivers and trends responsible for the growth of this market and its sub-segments.

“Vendors are implementing advanced technologies and design strategies data centers to improve their performance. Green data centers are the most recent development in data center construction, owing to increase in carbon emissions and high consumption of electricity by data centers worldwide. Vendors are using several concepts such as free cooling, renewable energy sources, consolidation, and waste recycling in the construction of green data centers,” says Rakesh Panda, Lead Analyst, ICT, Technavio Research

Data center design is directly related to the availability and redundancy offered. As data centers are essential for business continuity, dependence on highly redundant and available infrastructure is growing. Data centers need to have fail-safe designs with high-quality infrastructure. The efficient design of a data center, while considering the present and future business needs in terms of availability, flexibility, scalability, and manageability, will enhance operations and prevent disruptions in business.

The leading vendors in the global data center design market are Arup Associates, Corgan, ESD, Future-tech, Gensler, Glumac and Syska Hennessey. There are many global design organizations such as construction companies, infrastructure vendors, and technologies services organizations with expertise in designing data centers. Moreover, most organizations involved in the design of data center projects are dependent on third party design software and expertise.
