The pandemic ushered in a digital boom in 2020, driving data center digital modernization efforts at a rapid pace. The industry is seeing an increased reliance on digital infrastructure, more colocation deployments, and advances in cloud architecture. The demand for data centers and cloud services will continue to grow in 2021 and beyond.
A new special report from ABB explores how physical infrastructure, the data center, and the cloud are keeping up with new modular solutions delivery and streamlined operational support. In the first section of the report, ABB discusses how digital transformation is impacting physical infrastructure. The author covers distributed computing, and the evolution of modular solutions.
The second section of the report covers new design considerations, including those for modular data centers, while section three breaks down three myths about modular data centers. Solution architectures for scalable modular data center design are also covered in the report, including an overview of how IEC 61850 simplifies data center power infrastructure and automation.
ABB also provides two case studies on scalable data center designs and tips for getting started on the modular journey.
