ROOT Data Center has announced the availability of a new white paper titled, Power, Real Estate and Capability: Evaluating Your Data Center’s Expansion Capacity. Global creation of data is increasing at a massive rate and the ability to store and manage this data is crucial for the IT operator. As enterprises through small businesses move to the cloud, cloud operators must be able to respond to increasing demands for more capacity quickly and reliably. Data center choice is paramount. In this white paper, ROOT Data Center explores the factors that create success for hyperscalers and enterprises in supporting fast and reliable expansion and scalability.
According to the white paper, as demand for data storage space increases at its rampant pace, three of the most important considerations for global enterprises and hyperscale providers seeking effective data center hosting solutions are available power, available space and deployment capabilities. As enterprise IT infrastructures grow and mature, they require higher power densities as well as increased cabinet space. Additionally, as data center real estate is quickly depleting, it has become necessary to work with a provider capable of building out infrastructure within a geographic location that offers available space. Finally, an effective data center provider should be able to ensure the installation of infrastructure in short time frames.
“It has become essential for companies seeking data center solutions to ensure their provider is capable of effectively expanding infrastructure, power and space to future-proof requirements,” says AJ Byers, president and CEO, ROOT Data Center. “Historically, it was acceptable for a data center to have deployment timelines of a year and a half, which now needs to be closer to three months for a multi-megawatt project. In fact, most data center operators are still working at that pace, so the ability to accelerate that timeline to 90 days or less is a key differentiator.”
ROOT Data Center delivers multi-MW implementations in less than 120 days, and offers a PUE of 1.17, combined with 100% sustainable power and densities of up to 40kW per rack. Companies benefit from ROOT’s unmatched deployment speeds and low-cost renewable hydro-electric power from Hydro Quebec. Coupling these benefits with scalable high-performance services, customers are able to achieve effective colocation solutions designed to suit businesses of any size.
