Every day, a huge amount of data are generated in every company. This data is a source of benefits for organizations. However, it is not yet exploited, mostly due to technological limitations.

This trend in the use of data and its transformation into relevant information for decision-making will continue to grow exponentially in the coming years. Given this development, the data center will be directly affected and must deliver the scalability, agility and flexibility required by Big Data, in addition to absolute reliability. Data storage will grow in every company, so data centers must themselves adapt to this reality and cope with the increased data not only in the short and medium term, but should be updated and adapted to the time to the new requirements without incurring  exorbitant extra costs.

But the increase of the stored information is not the only problem that data centers face. At the operational level, both the energy consumption and cooling the systems pose a challenge for companies. Data Centers are so much importance for enterprises that the development of Big Data is directly related to their adaptation to the new requirements of data analysis. Only in this way, this new step in Business Intelligence truly become a new competitive advantage. Not surprisingly, information is one of the most important assets for businesses, and new challenges focus on data capture, storage, how to access them and what information we can get, become key factors for success.
