  5. 5. What we offer 5 • Colocation at more than 50 data centers • 137M watts of power managed • 1.2M sq. feet of space
  6. 6. What will tomorrow’s data center look like? 6
  7. 7. 7 Maybe?
  8. 8. You can't know where you're going until you know where you've been. 8
  9. 9. Yesterday to today 9 Any trends? Switchboard Telecom central office IT data center Cheap plug
  10. 10. Fuel the future.Address compliance. Enable IT efficiency. Control costs. 10 Data centers are a foundational asset.
  11. 11. And they provide you with an IT marketplace. • Data centers give you a way to use simple IT solutions to solve complex problems. • Common platforms let you adopt a range of multi-product and hybrid solutions. • Data centers are built to address future technology demands. 11
  12. 12. Service tiers are essential. Service requirement Basic Advanced Service availability SLA for 99.99% uptime SLA for 100% uptime Support response targets North America – two hours 30 minutes Carrier neutral Carrier redundant Advanced network services Advanced services None Cloud, hosting, storage, etc. Security Essential Essential 12
  13. 13. Where are we headed? 13
  14. 14. Many factors influence tomorrow’s data center. 14 Edge computing Regulatory compliance Fog networking Artificial intelligence Utility costsInternet of Things Cloud
  15. 15. 15 How the value proposition is evolving Today Data centers support the most demanding enterprise requirements, including a high degree of uptime, power density and efficiency. Facilities must offer an extraordinarily diverse set of network and cloud providers. Yesterday Designed for colocation customers that require more uptime and network connectivity Tomorrow Uptime? Power density? Networks? 15
  16. 16. What is the evolving financial model? 16 • Modular design • Lease/license when ready • No right answer • Business plan as guide • Renewable energy • Higher efficiency infrastructure • Visibility and control helps improve performance • Potentially reduces staff Just-in-time spending Automation Build vs. buy vs. lease vs. license Reduced utility
  17. 17. What will future customers need? 17 Large enterprise Internet of Things Small business Tomorrow’s technologies Virtual solutions (cloud) Hybrid solutions Colocation Network Common global platform
  18. 18. What will the data center look like? 18
  19. 19. Modular data-center system designs will dominate in response to the dynamic need for additional capacity. Modular data-center system designs 19
  20. 20. 20 More customers will turn to distributed architectures. • Fewer will need 100 percent data-center uptime. • Application uptime will rely on compute and network topologies.
  21. 21. 21 Customers with complex regulatory requirements may continue to leverage fewer locations. Centralized architectures will continue to rely on high uptime.
  22. 22. 22 Fewer advances and innovations in data center infrastructure technologies New technologies must provide increased performance at a reduced cost.
  23. 23. Location, location, location 23
  24. 24. 24 The network is abundant. Carrier redundancy supports topology-based uptime.
  25. 25. Low utility cost Power and cooling represents approximately 40 percent of our data center’s operating cost. 25
  26. 26. 26 Low real- estate cost • Distributed architectures require a larger quantity of sites. • Land must support a modular growth plan.
  27. 27. Design considerations 27 Campus designs are best suited for moderate incremental investments dynamic growth.
  28. 28. Tell me more about power. 28
  29. 29. 29 Power usage effectiveness (PUE) will continue to drop. • Efficient equipment and designs will help reduce total operating costs. • The total cost of the equipment and design cannot present significant upfront costs.
  30. 30. 30 Power densities are leveling off. Vendors can make power-hungry equipment but there is only a market for equipment that can be installed.
  31. 31. 31 Usage-based power models will be more common. The need for simplified power management will grow along with the need for more power. Power management tools will be part of an overall topology management suite.
  32. 32. What about cloud? 32
  33. 33. 33 • The cloud, and other similar solutions, are one of many catalysts driving the evolution of the data center. • The cloud does not reduce the need for data centers. What about cloud?
  34. 34. 34 Solution uptime Risk will reside at the point that alleviates the risk at the lowest cost. • The connected lifestyle will make downtime obsolete. • Solution providers will provide 100 percent solution uptime by leveraging a tiered data-center model as part of a network integrated solution. One hundred percent uptime doesn’t have to come with greater costs. • Modular designs will make it easier to deliver uptime tiers. • 99.99 percent at data centers will drive an increased need for architecture diversity. • Risk begins to move away from the data center and over to the network and compute.
