Commenting on the report, an analyst from the new reports team said: “Energy efficiency and data center performance are gaining higher importance in the working of any data center facility. Those data center service providers and enterprises having their own data center facilities are facing various restrictions and regulations imposed by the regulatory authorities on maintaining minimum performance levels in the facilities. The data center facilities are being equipped with precision air conditioning equipment and high-performance computing equipment which consumes lower power and delivers high-performance computing. Many data center monitoring and management solutions are also being incorporated as part of the data center facility, which enables the network administrators to optimize the performance of the entire facility.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers is the rapid growth in digital content being transmitted across enterprise networks. Increasing digital content requires increased computational capacity and storage capacity.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the high cost of labor that is affecting the operational costs associated with data center facilities. Singapore is a small nation and is currently experiencing very high labor costs. Further, the country is also experiencing a very high rate of inflation that is leading to higher expenditure on establishing and maintaining the facilities.
