Ever since the COVID 19 pandemic hit, there has been a paradigm shift in the way consumers and businesses perceive digital services. From retail to entertainment, education, finance, and business services, there has been a massive transition to digital-first interactions between consumers and businesses.
With Cloud growth sweeping the businesses off their feet, the demand for Data Centers as spurred by social media companies and Cloud service providers has spiked to an all-time high.
No organisation would want to be late to catch the bus for adopting market innovations. But it is equally important to ensure that the innovation being heralded as a new benchmark, is worth an investment, considering an organisation’s business traits.
To help you with an introduction, Bare Metal Servers are fully-dedicated servers rendering maximum performance through a secure, single tenancy.
Earlier, workloads ran via Bare Metals in the days of monolithic applications and on-premises server rooms. Today, they are still among the well-established data management models on the market. In line with this, there are customisable alternatives available through an array of cores, versatile storage, extensive memory, and more.
‘Cloud Repatriation’ refers to moving workloads or applications from a Public Cloud to a Private Cloud. This trend is perceived by some as an indicator of declining interest in Public Cloud services and moving towards Private Cloud Computing. On the other hand, some people suggest redefining the notion of repatriation to accurately reflect the dynamic nature of IT services in today’s digital world - workload mobility.
The COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed a wave of changes that have redefined normalcy in several walks of life - from work styles to entertainment, education, shopping, and much more. Digital has become the “new normal” for customers, and businesses of all sizes had to accelerate their digitisation efforts by as much as 3 to 4 years, to remain competitive.
There are just over 7.2 million Data Centers across the world today. Data Centre capacity has expanded in every single geographic location, catering to a mega-growth architecture that supports smart devices. Yet, technical staff is notoriously difficult to find for these service providers. With more education and training required on-the-job, a wider pool of diverse talent will be needed by 2025. The resourcing skew is coupled with a demand that primarily rises from Cloud and Colocation Data Centers.
Cloud technology is riding the digitisation wave through business process transformation. Corporations have increasingly embraced the Cloud platform realising its pivotal role in day-to-day operations.
Within the gamut of Cloud ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning lies the SAP Cloud Platform or SCP. It is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) product that renders a development and runtime environment for Cloud applications. Using open-source and open standards, SCP enables software vendors, startups and developers to create and test HANA-based Cloud applications.
Before the pandemic, the conventional systems called for physical offices that were critical to culture, productivity and security. But, COVID-19 pushed every sector into a virtual working environment that delivered mixed results at best. As the third year of volatility continues, enterprises are beginning to tentatively reopen their workspaces, adapting to a hybrid model.
If the past two years are evidence of anything, it is that the data never sleeps. Right from 2020, we have seen a surge of connectivity, user distribution, and a deeper focus on systems that keep running round the clock: Data Centers.
