Global Containerized Data Center Market 2010-201425 Nov 2011 • by Natalie Aster
Containerized Data Centers are those datacenters that are mounted, configured and operated within a box or a shipping container. These containers hold the complete physical infrastructure and remote monitoring that are essential for a datacenter. Each container can hold up to thousands of servers.
Recently, the concept of Containerized Data Center has sparkled interest among many industries. Advantages such as scalability, cost effectiveness and high power utilization are the major reasons behind the rising interest of such data centers. Coupled with this, many of the current data centers are reaching limits in power, cooling and space; thus driving the companies to find the best alternative strategy to scale up the requirements.
Further, Containerized Data Centers significantly reduce the amount of time spent on expanding/building a datacenter. With the help of this concept, companies can deploy datacenters within weeks instead of months or years, usually spent in designing and constructing a traditional data center.
However, at the commercial front, the market for containerized data center is still in a nascent stage. The first commercial containerized datacenter was released by Sun Microsystems (Sun Microsystems was acquired by Oracle in 2009) in 2006. A series of Containerized Data Centers products flew into the market from various server vendors later on. Currently, there are products from IBM, HP, SGI, Dell, Verari Systems, and many more in the market.
Moreover, the usage of containerized datacenter concept by large IT players such as Microsoft and Google is helping to promote the containerized datacenters. Microsoft opened a containerized datacenter for business in Chicago in September 2009. The other leading player, Google, recently announced that it had used containerized datacenter concept for building its first datacenter back in 2005.
From the recent developments, it can be said that the concept of Containerized Data Center is forecast to gain a significant thrust in the near future.
