EkkoSense highlights 5 key issues for DCs in 2024

27 November 2023

EkkoSense has identified five key issues that it believes will be key drivers to data centre operations success in 2024. Critical to this will be the ability of data centre operations teams to deliver against increasing ESG requirements while also supporting escalating workloads.

“Running today’s data centres is consistently challenging. The task is only going to get more complex in 2024 as data centre teams strive to balance increasing workloads with meeting corporate sustainability and ESG programmes,” said EkkoSense’s CEO, Dean Boyle. “That’s hard enough to do in a static market but, with the current explosion in demand for data centre services, as well as a land grab for real estate and power, operations teams need to be doing everything they can to ensure data centre facilities are performing optimally. This will mean staying on top of key thermal, power and capacity issues, as well as adjusting to the latest ESG reporting demands. And that requires a closer understanding of how different data centre sites are performing in real-time."
