In our last blog, we addressed the role of PUE and its relationship to flexible, sustainable data centers. If you missed it, you can follow this link here to get caught up on the series. Today, we are going to turn our attention to some of the new challenges facing data center operators, specifically around the seemingly continuous propagation of technology and data. While Moore’s Law and consolidation efforts have worked to ‘densify’ the data center, new applications and edge computing are working to offset the trend. As mentioned in our previous blog, the industry as a whole has made tremendous advances in getting the average data center PUE closer to 1.0 but the recent technological advances have challenged operators.
