Emerson predicts that the data center ecosystem will change dramatically

Emerson Network energy, the global leader of Emerson's business brand and committed to maximizing the availability, capacity and efficiency of key infrastructure, released a forward-looking report today, "data center 2025: exploring the possibility of future development.", It summarizes the global research that has taken four months to explore the prospects of the data center industry in 2025. The survey results not only show the expected increase in cloud computing applications, but also boldly predict that the data center will mainly rely on solar power and the power density will exceed 50 kW per frame. One thing is very clear: as far as we know, most experts believe that data centers will change dramatically in the next decade

more than 800 data center professionals worldwide accepted the data center 2025 survey, and dozens of experts provided their opinions through interviews, emails and videos. Overall, these feedbacks show that most people in the industry are still optimistic about continuous innovation in the data center industry and it. For example, on average, experts predict that 20 in order to have more time to convey the changes in charges to the public, the power density in 25 years will climb to 52 kW per frame. According to the data center users group? According to the data of (data center user group), the average density has remained relatively stable since reaching the peak of about 6kW about a decade ago, but experts predict that the power density will be significantly increased, which may fundamentally change the physical environment of the data center

Steve Hassell, President of Emerson Network Energy Data Center Solutions business, said: we launched the data center 2025 plan to sincerely hope to know what customers, partners, peers and other people in the data center community think about the prospects of this industry. Our research adopts an open attitude and does not have any subjective expectations and preconceived ideas about the results. The survey results reflect some insightful opinions, foresight and optimism, which greatly enlighten me that there is too much volatility to go back and forth. I think the real impact of this report lies not only in its measurement of current views, but also in its ability to stimulate future innovation

other noteworthy findings and predictions in the report:

huge changes in the power supply mode of the data center: experts believe that the data center will use multiple power supply modes at the same time. Solar energy will take the first place, followed by nuclear energy, natural gas and wind energy, whose proportions are basically the same. 65% of experts believe that super large-scale facilities may generate electricity by themselves

the prediction of cloud computing is quite conservative: industry experts predict that by 2025, two-thirds of the computing in the data center will be completed in the cloud. In fact, this estimate is quite conservative. According to the Cisco global cloud index, the workload of cloud computing accounts for about 46% of the total workload of the current data center, and will reach 63% by 2017

dcim will play a prominent role: 29% of experts predict that it will achieve full visibility across all systems and layers, and 43% of experts believe that the data center will achieve self-healing and self optimization. The combination of these two data shows that 72% of experts believe that DCIM will be deployed to a certain extent in 2025, which is significantly higher than most current estimates for the adoption of DCIM

the utilization rate will be improved: the improvement of the visibility of the data center is expected to bring more effective overall performance. 72% of industry experts predict that the utilization rate of IT resources will reach at least 60% by 2025. The average forecast is 70%. The current average is estimated to be only 6% to 12%, and the maximum is only 30% to 50%

the design of semi open computer room will be strengthened: the miniaturization of the data center makes it expected to be deployed in more occasions. In order to solve the limitations of different site conditions, the data center gradually moves closer to the design idea of semi open computer room, weakening the correlation between the core system and the environment

the heat dissipation problem of high-density load is further prominent: from the development trend of IT system, although the energy consumption required for unit computing capacity will continue to decline in the future, the average power consumption per unit area of the data center will continue to increase (it is expected to exceed 10kw/cabinet), resulting in researchers using grapefruit seed extract to strengthen its performance, and the heat dissipation problem of the data center is further prominent, Therefore, the deployment position of the refrigeration system with different cold source sources will continue to be close to the IT equipment in the cabinet

451 Andy Lawrence, vice president of research data center technology and it eco efficiency, said: the data center in 2025 will definitely not be limited to one. I like to use transportation as a metaphor. On the road, we can see sports cars, family cars, buses and trucks. These cars use different types of engines and seats, and have different characteristics in terms of energy consumption and reliability. A similar situation will occur in the data center. In fact, this change has already taken place, and I think it will continue
