Data Centers are changing. Distributed workload management is affecting enterprise data centers. The infrastructure of data centers is changing from large data centers located away from users to distributed, smaller, and more flexible data centers closer to users to save fiber and cut transmission times. When a data center is co-located in an urban environment or an industrial park, the outside environment of the data center becomes more critical to ensure good ventilation inside. Inside, the layout of equipment racks and rows in a multi-tenant data center is critical to delivering the most favorable IT environment for each client ensuring performance and managing energy use.
