Data Center Transformation beyond Multi-Cloud is an important step towards modernizing infrastructure for businesses. Data Centers are crucial for enabling the consumption of various services, both directly and indirectly. Direct services include computing, servers, storage, and infrastructure equipment, as well as co-location and cloud computing hosting provided by global players in the industry.
It’s well-known that Data Centers consume a significant amount of energy, and as the world shifts towards being more environmentally friendly, the sector is facing new regulations and challenges to transition to greener energy sources. With the rise of cloud computing, which is increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few global players, local data centers are facing challenges in making their offerings appealing to both existing and potential customers. This is due to economic factors such as economies of scale, which force data center providers to look for new niches in order to survive in this changing landscape.
Data Centers continue to be a crucial and modern infrastructure. With the new wave of AI, such as what Microsoft Azure is delivering in terms of AI services, we can expect that new product rollouts will eventually become one of the criteria that businesses consider as they move towards the next wave of big things. How AI and robotics coexist with traditional infrastructure will be an important and strategic variable for businesses to consider in order to stay competitive in the future.
Do not forgot emerging technologies such as Metaverse is coming too. The opportunity to power the Metaverse through infrastructure and services is a significant potential opportunity for data centers, and those who are able to capitalize on it before their competitors will have a major advantage.
Indirectly, there are many second-tier hosting providers who co-locate or lease servers and systems in data centers to perform breaking bulk services and offer smaller units for second-tier businesses or consumers, such as traditional hosting, virtual private hosting, and related services.
As we enter 2023, the new emerging technology battle is shifting towards providing access to AI capabilities and functionality in a cost-effective manner. Microsoft-Azure currently leads this trend by providing access to Chapt GPT and other OpenAI technologies, and without doubt, this dominance will shape the direction for the next normal. OpenAI’s Chat GPT, which was rolled out just two months ago, has already demonstrated its impact and potential benefits. If no similar offering appears in the short term, this dominance will shape the direction for the next normal.
