How Is Demand Driving Data Center Market Growth?

How Is Demand Driving Data Center Market Growth?

Technology is rapidly changing the economic landscape, creating new opportunities for businesses to explore how they can broaden their IT solutions to take advantage of emerging markets. However, many companies aren’t considering how data centers, especially those in smaller operations, can play a crucial role in assisting them in leveraging new technology in a way that allows them to be more effective and efficient.

Data management in-house, on the other hand, is becoming increasingly complex, time-consuming, and expensive. Even big companies such as Cisco plan to shut down internal data centers to save energy and infrastructure costs.


The solution? Outsource data management.

More enterprises are outsourcing their data center operations to third-party providers who specialize in doing so. Data centers that provide physical space, power, and cooling systems for servers and connections to local communication networks are particularly common. UnitedLayer has over 40,000 square feet of fully redundant data center space, which is not in the earthquake fault, liquefaction, or landslide zone for the next 100-year and is seismically rated for protection against earthquakes.

What are the Key Drivers of Growth?

  1. Internet of Things: Using artificial intelligence, data, analytics, security, and communication, the US is one of the market leaders for industrial IoT-led technologies.
  2. Submarine cable projects along the east coast: These bring incredibly high-speed data to the East Coast from Europe and South America, where they are transferred to data centers.
  3. Cloud Storage: The use of cloud computing services and applications in the United States continues to grow rapidly, leading to extensive cloud-based data centers.
  4. Tax Incentives: Data center growth in recent years has been concentrated in tax incentive regions, including government and local governments that provide incentives for investment (often energy-based)

How to meet these growing data needs?

More data centers are being built to meet these growing data needs, ranging from Tier 1 (least complex and secure) to Tier 4 (highly complex with high IT/security requirements), usually hyperscale centers. UnitedLayer, for instance, has a Tier-3+ data center with superior outage protection to avoid any unplanned downtimes also greater than N+1 architecture for uninterrupted power and cooling.

How to meet future storage needs?

Automation can increase data-center efficiency by allowing a single administrator to handle thousands of servers. Advanced IT equipment and data center infrastructure management software providers are driving this automation initiative. 

Our Colocation services come with on-demand scalability where customers can add additional storage, compute, and networking resources to meet the increased business demands.

A Successful Colocation Deployment Over The Weekend By UnitedLayer

A Successful Colocation Deployment Over The Weekend By UnitedLayer

Sometimes a complex colocation deployment may take weeks or even months to get planned, implemented, and deployed. However, the world will keep on spinning, and a lot of business opportunities will be lost if your colocation provider is not fast enough to serve your every critical need within the given time, budget, and required scope of your project.

The problem with faster colocation deployment is that it needs to be done the ‘first time right,’ which again requires a lot of experience and can be only provided by a select few vendors like UnitedLayer, which shines out with its two decades of experience in solving complicated colocation and hybrid cloud problems. One of the biggest social media companies, the largest online encyclopedia, and one of the leading American internet hosting providers trust UnitedLayer for their complex colocation needs.

This write-up will take you through another success story of UnitedLayer in the colocation market featured by datacenterhawk. We at UnitedLayer take a lot of pride in delivering instant colocation solutions within a short period of time, which is mission-critical for our modern-day customers.

CTO of an American Major ML and AI firm found himself in a situation where the lease on the current colocation space was about to expire. The customer provides Machine Learning(ML) and Artificial Intelligence(AI) for marketing and product innovation.

The customer browsed and sent quote requests to many data centers in the Bay Area and came across UnitedLayer, which supported all his requirements, including 11⁄2 racks, 500 MBPS bandwidth, Azure AWS, and GCP connectivity and the cost. The team of UnitedLayer assured the customer that the relocation of their colocation would be taken care of in a span of 72 hours.

Fortunately for the customer, UnitedLayer was prepared to field the request. What resulted was a flurry of activity rarely seen to help the customer make his move.

  • UnitedLayer scheduled a same-day tour of 200 Paul* and delivered pricing in less than 24 hours.
  • The team at UnitedLayer was able to expedite the provisioning and customer onboarding.
  • The team did an after-hours install on Saturday and put connectivity in place on Sunday.
  • The customer was able to move in on Monday, avoiding any sort of costly interruption of IT service.

Within a record time of 72 hours, the customer could proceed with the initial request to deploy a business functional colocation facility.
