Kalyan Muppaneni, Founder & CEO

Data Centers are no longer isolated facilities behind corporate walls. With technology and data taking the center stage, they have evolved into being the epicenter of enterprises by ensuring them availability and agility. Today, they enable the end to end cycle of development to deployments of applications by continuously pumping in efficiency to keep the base infrastructure alive.

The cloud and datacenter markets have been displaying enthralling growth figures. Corroborating this fact are research studies which forecast the Global Cloud Data Center market to grow at a CAGR of 28.7 percent and reach USD 67.5 billion by 2023.

With the growing data center market,also moving northward is the technology advancement quotient. Emerging technologies are demanding and thereby driving the data centers’ development and readiness for tomorrow.

Technology readiness for tomorrow is the easiest said and most difficult when implemented. It comes coupled with its own complex challenges of man and machine resources, costs, customer acceptance, security and the technology changing at a pace faster than light.

The efficiency of a data center is defined by its characteristics of always being up & running with minimal cost & resource consumption and addressing all the above said challenges!
