Companies will invest more in data centers in the coming years, but it won’t necessarily be around compute. That’s according to a new survey by AFCOM, the data center and IT management education company.
This is AFCOM’s first study on the subject in two years, and it found that ownership, renovations, and building of new data centers were on the increase. It found 58 percent of survey respondents currently own between two and nine data centers and that on average, 5.3 data centers will be renovated per organization. That number increases to 7.8 data centers over the course of 12 months.
Once again, we see the notion of people shutting down their data centers and moving everything to the cloud is evaporating.
