Global data creation is increasing at a massive rate, forcing IT operators to find new ways of storing and managing information. Cloud operators must be able to respond to rising capacity demands quickly and reliably in order to best serve their customers.

As Root Data Center explains in a new white paper titled, “Power, Real Estate and Capability: Evaluating Your Data Center’s Expansion Capacity”, data center choice as well as power, space and deployment are the most important considerations that global enterprises and hyperscale providers should take into account when future-proofing their facilities. Enterprise IT infrastructure is growing and maturing, leading to higher power density and cabinet space requirements. At the same time, data center real estate is diminishing making it necessary for businesses to work with providers that can rapidly build out infrastructure within a geographical location that offers available space.

“It has become essential for companies seeking data center solutions to ensure their provider is capable of effectively expanding infrastructure, power and space to future-proof requirements,” said AJ Byers, President and CEO of ROOT Data Center. “Historically, it was acceptable for a data center to have deployment timelines of a year and a half, which now needs to be closer to three months for a multi-megawatt project.  In fact, most data center operators are still working at that pace, so the ability to accelerate that timeline to 90 days or less is a key differentiator.”

ROOT Data Center offers multi-MW implementations in less than 120 days as well as densities of up to 40kW per rack and a PUE of 1.17 backed by 100 percent sustainable power, hydro-electric power. By pairing these benefits with scalable high-performance services, customers of any size can achieve cost-effective and reliable colocation.
