簡介

在過去十年中,數據中心和 IT 管理髮生了一些重大變化。添加了一個發電廠來提供運行數據中心所需的大量電力。此外,雲計算呈爆炸式增長,大部分處理負載已從 IT 部門運營的數據中心轉移到雲提供商運營的超大規模計算機中心。支撐數據中心的計算機硬件和軟件工具也變得更加複雜和高效。另一方面,用戶仍然期望高可靠地交付 IT 服務。

自 2010 年以來,電網也發生了重大變化。電力公司已經整合了許多非分佈式可再生能源,並採用信息處理技術來更好地管理電網。除了新技術之外,許多區域監管機構還支持非傳統定價方案。許多監管機構正在鼓勵更多地使用可再生能源、節約成本和實現社會期望的結果。然而,電力公司以合理的成本提供高度可靠的服務的期望並沒有改變。

本報告分析了全球數據中心市場的最新趨勢和未來前景,以及近期技術發展的結果和預期效果——尤其是對降低電力成本的影響——企業數據中心的電力成本。我們將提供為您提供波動前景、數據中心行業對電力行業生態系統變化的反應以及行業利益相關者在利用創新和商業聯盟時應採取的態度等信息。

The past decade has seen several profound changes at data centers and in IT management. There are more generation sources available to provide the large amount of power needed to run data centers. In addition, cloud computing has exploded, shifting much of the processing load from IT department-run data centers to hyperscale-size computer centers operated by cloud providers. Computer hardware and software tools that support data centers have become more sophisticated and efficient. One thing that has not changed is the expectation by users that IT services will be provided with high reliability.

The power grids have also been going through important changes since 2010. Power utilities have been integrating more non-dispatchable renewables for generation and incorporating greater intelligence to better manage the grid. In addition to the new technology, regulators in many regions are supporting non traditional pricing scenarios. Many regulators encourage a greater use of renewable energy, reduced costs, and socially desirable outcomes. One thing that has not changed is the expectation that utilities will provide service with high reliability at a reasonable cost.

This ‘Guidehouse Insights’ looks at how organizations shifting processing loads to the cloud are using new strategies to maintain positive trends. This report reviews data center approaches to changes in the power ecosystem and presents the benefits and challenges of these efforts. Successful integration of innovative new technology shows promise for stakeholders and has the potential to enable lower costs for both data centers and the power value chain by shifting loads to low cost and more environmentally friendly power sources.

KEY QUESTIONS ADDRESSED:

  • How are organizations' data centers control power costs expected to shift moving forward?
  • What is next for data centers seeking to become more green and environmentally friendly?
  • How can data centers lower costs by shifting loads to locations with lower energy prices or greener energy?
  • Why should data center information management solutions manufacturers partner with microgrid solutions providers and virtualization software manufacturers?
  • Why should organizations reconsider HVAC systems within existing data centers?

WHO NEEDS THIS REPORT:

  • Energy management system vendors
  • Cloud service providers
  • Data center information management solutions providers
  • Utilities
  • Investor community
