White Paper: The Evolution of the Data Centre

Evolution of the data centre - Mockup

Large scale computer rooms began to appear in the 1950s. These early systems had huge, complex hardware challenges and needed a cold, dry and secure operating environment.

The multiple interconnecting devices and extensive cabling required elevated floors and many precious square metres of prime real estate to house these rooms. In addition, the operation of a single mainframe computer used colossal amounts of power and cooling to prevent overheating. This made the construction of a data centre a complex and expensive affair.

From old computer rooms to modern micro data centres, this white paper looks at the evolution of data storage technology.
