Siemon deep dives into the value of the datacentre in Africa’s data-centric market
Businesses have increased their focus on digital innovation to build more reliable digital ecosystems within the datacentre environment. Against this backdrop, the datacentre value equation has changed.
This is according to global network infrastructure specialist Siemon. The company has launched a series of datacentre focussed tech briefs to help datacentre infrastructure professionals in the Middle East and Africa gain a better understanding of how the value derived from their datacentre is changing in light of digital transformation and newly emerging technologies and applications.
Siemon said in the Series, it explores the value equation within today’s modern datacentre and delves into new designs and services, digital infrastructure considerations, and key strategies for ensuring resiliency and support for future demands.
Also presented in the tech briefs are emerging trends such as adopting a hybrid approach via a balance between cloud, on-prem and colocation models, as well as real-world use cases of companies that are successfully modernising their business via the right digital infrastructure.
“The first Industry Insight Brief of this series looks at how the datacentre value equation has changed over the past few decades, how these changes are impacting the market, and how some organisations are applying new value principles with an increased focus on digital innovation to build better and more reliable digital ecosystems within the datacentre environment,” the company stated.
Following on from here, the second Insight Brief focusses on new concepts in datacentre design and services as traditional datacentres are transitioning to digital infrastructure to support trends including 5G, smart buildings and edge and cloud computing, Siemon continued.
The last part of the series takes a closer look at modern technologies such as low latency networking, automation and green technologies and the impact these have on the architecture of digital infrastructure as organisations seek to leverage them.
Prem Rodrigues, Director for Sales and Marketing for IMEA at Siemon, said, “As the economy is becoming increasingly data driven, the pressure on digital infrastructure and the datacentre grows exponentially. We have created this Industry Insight Series to help datacentre professionals adopt a new digital thought process at the datacentre level and help them with the changes that are necessary to move further into the digital age.”
