In Many Ways, the Onus on Data Centers has Never Been Greater:
Business success and IT growth are increasingly intertwined. New HPC apps like IoT, AR, and AI are becoming commonplace and driving a shift toward high-heat GPU hardware.
Rack densities are climbing. Temperatures and stress levels are rising as cooling becomes a barrier to growth. At the same time, pressure is mounting to make data centers more energy-efficient and sustainable. The speed of these changes further complicates capacity planning, already a challenge due to budget approvals plus long lead times.
