Energy use in data centers throughout APAC is rising to match skyrocketing demand. 26.5% of the total energy used by data centers around the world is consumed by the APAC region and there is no sign of a slowing demand. Lack of energy management methods coupled with the unprecedented rise in demand, are the major concerns to the data center power market in the APAC region.
The skyrocketing demand while the supply is scarce is evident in the very high retail colocation space pricing in the APAC region as compared to the US pricing, it is 2.75 times higher. Increasing power and cooling requirements driven by the increasing need for high density blade servers is placing Malaysia, India and China on site selection maps, where land is less scarce as compared to traditional places like Hong Kong and Singapore. This is expected to drive the prices down as investments are set to reduce.
The increasing Power and utility prices are becoming roadblocks to this market. The rapid rise in power consumption has driven the state providers to increase the prices by at least 10% over the last couple of years. The decreasing price due to increasing competition with the increasing number of new entrants into the market is also cutting into the profits of data center providers.
Data Centers are the most space efficient and time efficient pieces of technology and its importance quite unnoticed in the market today.
Data Centers are commonly run by large companies or government agencies to accommodate computer systems and associated components, such as storage systems and telecommunications. However, they are also extensively used to provide fast-growing cloud solution services to private and business applications. One of these applications include redundant or backup power supplies.
In addition, the data centers also have a large amount of equipment associated with supplying power and cooling, and mostly with automatic fire extinguishing systems. This requires a significant amount of power which makes the parameter “power” a very important component of the expenses incurred in running Data Centers.
The increasing market demand for Data Center is being driven by the exceptional rise in the demand for data storage space.
The need for security of the data and prevention of accidental or intentional manipulation of hardware means that data centers are placed in well-constructed, sturdy buildings that house servers, storage devices, cables, and a connection to the Internet.
The growing demand for data storage is also one of the reasons behind expanding the functionalities or the capacities of the data centers of various companies and businesses.
With the growing awareness about power conservation, many sectors have started opting for greener or eco-friendly alternatives, given the rising concerns regarding excessive power consumption and is also one of the major contributor to the growing Data Centers Market.
There are still many who aren’t that well aware of the efficient power management techniques, and apart from this, the data center market would also need a one-time huge amount of investment initially.
