The increasing adoption of smartphones has created new business opportunities for enterprises in Asia-Pacific. The users are now using their smartphones for shopping, comparing products, and other such tasks. This has led to data explosion, which enterprises are analyzing for decision making and enhancing customer experience. Storage and analysis of such data require data centers and efficient cooling solutions, which can help in reducing operating costs. Little attention has been given so far to the cost of energy used by different IT systems. However, with the rising energy costs, enterprises are looking towards solutions that can help them to save money. The demand for such systems is on the rise and has become one of the driving factors behind the decisions regarding deploying new technologies.
Asia-Pacific Data Center Cooling Market-Market Dynamics
In order to meet the requirements of customers, IT organizations are deploying new applications. This is leading to space, power, and cooling shortage. These issues have led many organizations to acknowledge that data center costs are now part of their limited budget. To take full advantage of their systems, they need to spend effectively and on technologies that increase the lifespan of the data centers as well as business agility. Data center cooling is a primary target for energy efficiency improvements. These help in bringing down costs related to the energy consumption of data centers. Companies are now working towards new cooling technologies as well as refining the old ones. Some of the cooling technologies that are being used at present are chillers, air conditioners, economizers, and hot huts. With data centers one of the contributors to greenhouse gas emission, green data centers are gaining traction. These data center cooling systems maximize energy efficiency and minimize environmental impact. The factors challenging the data center cooling systems market are the system’s adaptability requirements and erratic power supply requirements in some regions.
Skanska has developed eOPTI-TRAX, a new data center cooling technology that can reduce expenditure incurred in these cooling systems. As the demand for data centers grows, there will be a need for more effective cooling solutions. Though there are some major players like IBM, Schneider Electric, and HP present in the data center cooling market, some other vendors like Skanska are challenging the status quo with their superior solutions.
