Future of Data Centers

Future of Data Centers

Data has become the most valuable intellectual property for any company and its inherent value will only grow in the years ahead. Operations, procedures, production, and supply are now so important that choices made about how it is stored, exchanged, and processed will determine the quality and durability of a company’s operations. Around the globe, more than 2.5 Quintillion bytes of data are generated daily. India alone is expected to generate 2.3 million petabytes of digital data by 2020 and is rising at a much faster pace than the world average.

The new data centers now provide converged infrastructure, and the trend is going more towards hyper-convergence. This has brought many benefits to Data Center operations and has also addressed issues that had previously plagued businesses. For example, the risk of hardware failure plagues companies with the risk of data loss, and the struggle to restore their infrastructure. The process of running a Data Center is structured by converged infrastructures; with a single interface used for network management, the organization is more efficient in streamlining the operating processes and keeping the data secure on the cloud.

Although operations consolidation by convergence facilitates management, most servers are still siloed, and that’s where hyper-convergence plays its magic. Hyper-converged data centers are data centers identified by software and are often called smart data centers. We use virtualization to integrate all operating layers into a single unit, including computing, networking, and storage. All are now on the same server with hyper-convergence that offers enhanced efficiencies, decreased costs, and greater control over Data Center components.

Rethink information infrastructure, replace proprietary servers with cloud services. You will now need far less room in a captive Data Center to store the same amount of data you needed. Welcome to the Controlled Colocation Model!

Data center solution providers offer colocation services (or Colo) to improve the customer experience. These are operated by a hybrid cloud, offering specialized services to their customers. A collocation is a position where companies have more leverage of their private networks, and they may also be closer to their customers with greater access to the public cloud.

UnitedLayer offers a premier Tier-3 data center facility where you can deploy and manage your existing hardware while still maintaining the level of access, control, and security of a data center that resides entirely on your premises. UnitedLayer provides Colocation facilities from one of San Francisco’s biggest data centers located at 200 Paul Ave. It is the only data center built on solid bedrock in San Francisco. This location serves many providers of engineering, technology, and internet services, and is the leading data center for the Bay Area and colocation in San Francisco. We have exceptionally low latency connectivity to all clouds, corporate data centers, and edge locations with over 300+ carriers at our interconnection facilities and direct access to over 3000 carriers. 

There will of course be many more avenues for data centers to move forward in the coming years. Some of the developments to be predicted are just changes in the way things are done right now, which is inevitable. Data centers, for example, will continue to incorporate modern technologies with equipment such as server racks, shelves, rails, etc. Nonetheless, in entirely new developments that actually do not exist today and are uncertain, the greatest improvements are likely to be the. That’s why it’s so important that everybody keeps up with the latest technical developments and inventions.

Data Protection & Privacy Management – UnitedLayer

Data Protection & Privacy Management – UnitedLayer

Data is one of the biggest assets a firm has. With the growth of the data economy, companies find immense value in data processing, sharing, and consumption. Companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon have all created empires on the economy of data. Transparency in how businesses are requesting consent, adhering to their privacy policies, and managing the data they have collected is vital to building trust and accountability with clients and partners who expect privacy. Many companies have learned the value of privacy the hard way through failures in widely publicized data.

Protection of data and IT infrastructure has always been a big concern for all companies, and now with IT systems shifting to cloud networks, it has become at the forefront of all IT agendas. Safety technologies have also been a core component of Data Center design and construction. Owners of Data Centers have worked tirelessly to maintain the highest security degree and have scrupulously followed industry best safety practices and met all regulatory requirements. Yet data centers are complex environments, and protecting them demands that each component’s security requirements be treated separately yet adopt a central, comprehensive security strategy at the same time.

Data privacy management helps make data discovery, classification, mapping, and risk analysis transparent to personal and sensitive data across the company. It also allows organizations to determine and consistently track compliance with data privacy with multifactor risk scoring and data access and movement tracking.
UnitedLayer helps you comply with data sovereignty and data protection laws applicable to your business in any global market. You’ll also get additional 24x7x365 threat detection, analysis, and analytics when paired with our data privacy solutions. It also enables you to determine the risk, build custom policies for encrypting and restricting access to sensitive PII data, and report access to data. We use CCTV to track the facilities and conduct strict ID checks to access the hall of data.

UnitedLayer provides you with complete data access and lets you decide when and how your data is handled. We maintain limited knowledge of the data processed by each customer via the hosting infrastructure, and we only process your data according to your instructions.

In other countries, like Amsterdam, we have data centers that provide our customers with additional options for an EU footprint.

The solutions concentrate on bringing the cloud’s power to your data center, allowing you to meet data sovereignty requirements more efficiently and enhance your efficiency by finding cloud services closer to you. We make sure your data is encrypted in transit and at rest. Our solutions ensure your data is subject to the country’s laws and governance systems. We ensure a simpler and more efficient migration route by which you can leverage your current application ecosystem. Our solutions are compatible with HIPPA, PCI, DISA, and SOC.

For so many variables to consider, finding the right data center might sound overwhelming, but the bottom line is that your data matters, and you should make sure you place it in the safest hands possible.

Maybe your company has expanded a lot lately, or you’re thinking about starting a company, and you want to make sure you get started on the right foot.

They hire a team of highly qualified engineers who carry on additional duties to fulfill their customers’ individual needs better. It involves the resolution of IT problems related to your infrastructure that your IT workers will usually manage. A remote hands support data center helps you to concentrate your internal Information Technology team on unique in-house tasks while the engineers handle the issues related to your equipment and network in their data center.
