With more and more users depending on the internet, the burst of data-centers has been popping up everywhere within the last 5 years. Locations that were not so tech driven has now become a place to house servers. When designing and creating a state of the art Datacenter, developers look at a lot of key factors such as location, weather conditions, expandability, centrally located, etc. In today’s world, latency and speed is a large factor as well. The bigger the fiber pipes the better as this is the main bottleneck in data transmission. The transmission lines will max out before CPU and memory reach their maximum potential. This will aid in minimizing latency and increase speed (thus increasing productivity;hopefully). Another big factor is also the cost of power to run the Datacenter. In a recent study these server houses consume about 2 percent of the worlds power according to Analyticspress. Today, Datacenters are looking to save operating cost by expanding or opening centers in areas where the power is typically cheaper and climate is usually cooler. Areas like Cleveland welcomes Datacenters according to ABC news. Here’s a quote from ABC ” Northeast Ohio is hardly ready to usurp Silicon Valley as a high-tech mecca, but a growing number of data centers are choosing to locate in and around Cleveland to take advantage of cheap power, an abundance of fiber-optic cable and one of the safest environments in the country for storing digital information.” More Datacenters equals more competition meaning lower cost to business utilizing server storage in large centers. All in all, we hope Datacenters continue to grow driving the Colocation price down to the $20/1U with 1GB connections.
