CORRECTING and REPLACING India Data Centre Market Set to Reach USD 1.5 Billion by 2010; Power Challenges Remain Critical

A new report from consulting company and data centre market specialist BroadGroup finds that the India market is experiencing substantial growth and will reach more than USD1.5 billion in value by 2010. Yet power supply remains a critical challenge for the country.

Based on a study detailing the profiles of 34 players, the study reveals that while growth is occurring at unprecedented levels, challenges remain particularly those relating to infrastructure, power – and the quality of power – and land availability.

Technical space will nevertheless more than double over the next two years. Fuelled by offshoring, overseas MNCs, and domestic demand, data centres in India have experienced significant growth over recent years, and as the survey reveals, new build and plans for new build are well advanced producing a spike in space that will more than double current capacity.

The core of the report details profiles of 34 players in India, both overseas and domestic, and the report examines current availability, location and expansion plans. The scale and capacity of the international ambitions of the top five players is supported by significant and growing demand from the local market. Although Global MNCs are becoming selective about the robustness of power supply, security and green credentials, overseas systems integrators and consultancies are sustaining and expanding their investments in India.

“India has the opportunity to become a global hub,” commented Frank Booty, editor of Data Centre News. “India’s language capabilities, skill levels, culture and governance are suited to the country becoming a global hub. It also has a resilient economy driving domestic demand for services. Until now much of the data coming out of India has been stored on servers in the US.”

Data Centre build however over the coming years will need to reflect the Green standards increasingly included in corporate RFPs, and there is an urgent need to address how the infrastructure will cope with the levels of power demanded by these plans. Corporates will also need reassurance about data loss and disaster situations.

In common with data centres globally, India data centres confront the challenge of cooling. Growing alarm expressed by interviewees for the report focused on the dollar/rupee spending on blade servers today, which embeds two to four times more power consumption in the same or less space, than was required by the equipment being replaced.

The report is the first to assess a complex and fast changing market but one that contains significant opportunities for companies engaged in the sector from the operators themselves through to a huge business for air conditioning companies and UPS suppliers.

Contextual Analytics of various threat data provides a deeper understanding of a given threat and enables identification of unknown threat vectors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Dufour, Head of Security Architecture, IoT, Webroot, Inc., discussed how through the use of Big Data analytics and deep data correlation across different threat types, it is possible to gain a better understanding of where, how and to what level of danger a malicious actor poses to an organization, and to determin...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...

As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
