Demand for data center services is being fed by streams of data from a wide variety of emerging technologies. The Internet of Things. Artificial Intelligence. Virtual reality. Video and apps. Data is the lifeblood of the new economy, and almost every individual and business is creating and consuming more data, not less.
This shift has just begun, and it is changing the data center business, which is responsible for the storage and processing of all this data. In our Data Driven series, Data Center Frontier is examining emerging technologies that are generating large volumes of data, and how their growth will impact demand for data center space.
