    There is a constant stream of innovation happening in storage technology, and the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) market is leading the way. According to this report, the HCI market is expected to be worth $17.1 billion by 2023. This projected growth could be put down to the myriad of advantages that HCI offers, including single-pane-of-glass management, reduced rackspace and power which means greener data centres, and improved disaster recovery capabilities to list a few.

    The novel coronavirus pandemic is sweeping the globe and once bustling industrial economies are grinding to a halt. 

    Companies and their employees are being forced to rapidly adapt to a new way of working, civil liberties are being withdrawn to ease pressure on already-squeezed health services, and emergency services on the frontline of the pandemic are making unthinkable sacrifices to attend the infected.

    As the electric and digital worlds converge, talent acquisition and team management are among the biggest challenges faced by data centre and technology businesses today.

    According to the Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey, “The single highest cause of stress is being short of staff”, and this has become a major issue. The survey found that the UK's tech industry is experiencing the highest skills shortage for more than a decade, with almost two thirds of CIOs (64%) reporting a shortfall of talent.

    Underpinning today’s data revolution are data architectures which define how data is stored, arranged, managed and used.

    With the rise of data-intensive applications such as AI and analytics and the deluge of unstructured data brought about by IoT, there is a growing need for more efficient and flexible data architectures so that organisations can keep data centre costs low and increase speed, agility and time-to-value for data initiatives.

    Those in the data centre industry today know that we are living in exciting times. Just 5-10 years ago, we were using buzz words like Internet of Things, machine learning, 5G,  hyperscale, cloud computing, edge computing, etc.

    These things are now very real and are forming the catalyst of the data centre boom we are currently experiencing. The world has caught on to the use of technology in virtually every aspect of our lives from teacherless classrooms using extended reality (XR) to autonomous driving; from the fully automated and connected home to advances in medical technological applications.

    Corporate IT infrastructure has never been so complex. There are a host of different options open to organisations, from running on public cloud and on-premise data centres, to SaaS cloud native capabilities and serverless infrastructure. Applications are running across an ever-wider range of technologies and geographies, making it increasingly difficult to monitor and troubleshoot when something goes wrong. Unsurprisingly, companies often struggle with a messy array of different tools and technologies based in these different locations.

    Application visibility is one particularly notable pain point. An estimated 80 percent of enterprises have gaps in monitoring their cloud or are totally blind to it. In these scenarios, customer experience (CX) is often hit hard. If an organisation lacks real-time visibility over application performance, the risk increases of gaps emerging between its internal view and actual user perception of how the app is performing.

    Often, we struggle to discuss the edge - one of the IT world’s hottest trends - because it’s difficult to objectively define it. “The edge means something different to every person,” says Mark Howell, of the Ford Motor Company. Howell oversees the construction of every new IT facility the veteran automaker builds and is the lead for EMEA region design, planning and engineering.

    From his perspective, the edge is effectively distributed technology, and need not encompass servers, storage and switches. By that token, Ford’s first edge site wasn’t a micro data centre, but the first remote offices and factories that Henry Ford built all those years ago. The company’s Paris office opened in 1908, the Kansas City assembly plant opened in 1911. By the end of the 1920’s Ford had more than 20 overseas assembly plants.

    With data demands reaching new levels in 2020, the role of the data centre is set to take centre stage for IT leaders. Against a backdrop of constant disruption and increasingly ambitious enterprise and cloud strategies, how do you ensure that your data centre is futureproofed, so that you stay ahead of the game, rather than react to it?

    In the far north of Sweden, scientists have built a facility to explore the future of data centres. “We have projects that are looking at innovative control of data centres…projects that would support zero touch data centres…we have started some projects that develop real life demonstrations of the reuse of heat for district heating.” Jon Summers, Scientific Lead at the ICE data centre lab at RISE, the Swedish research programme behind the facility, tells us about some of the innovative work being carried out there.

    Customer service, for instance, can be handled through automation, such as a support website, or their interactive voice response (IVR) software.  But after a few days, the company must determine how to take phone calls or at least have live conversations with customers through electronic means.  A few days at home isn’t a huge concern for most workers when it comes to using personal equipment. Now, companies need to address the security and reliability of those home office setups for “the new normal” of remote work. Companies with consumer-facing websites experiencing increased demand right now have other problems to solve – namely keeping those external processes working smoothly for customers stuck at home.

    British satellite Internet company OneWeb has filed for bankruptcy in the US after attempts to secure funding for a commercial launch were checked by the coronavirus fears.

    The firm, which had already secured billions in funding from investors such as Softbank, Qualcomm and the Government of Rwanda, was hoping to take its space-bound internet service commercial before the end of next year.
