Data centers running out of power capacity?

According to a recent Uptime Institute survey, 41.7% of respondents said that their data center would run out of power capacity in 12-24 months.


According to Uptime Institute , "Data Center Capacity and Energy Efficiency Survey," 41.7% said that their data center would run out of power capacity in 12 to 24 months. This finding supports previous Uptime Institute research which indicates that data center energy consumption may make or break enterprise computing profitability in the near future.

The Institute has argued that to continue to deliver uninterrupted uptime in enterprise computing, it is necessary to recognize that profitability, efficiency, and greenness are all one and the same.
