Data centers traditionally serve as the backbone for IT infrastructures for companies, data backups, and the backbone for the Internet itself.  The demand for facilities has been on the rise for a few years and market research shows that it will continue to grow at 22% a year.  

But with the Internet of Things on the rise, and the amount of connected devices we will see, the role of data centers might evolve into becoming more of an "operator" for the network and these connected devices.  Data centers will be places for collecting, analyzing, processing and rerouting data in real-time, with demands for efficiency, max capacity and security being the main issues that operators will have to deal with.

How do you see #datacenters  and their role in the future of the Internet of Things?
Data center demand is projected to grow, but their roles will be changed with the Internet of Things.

As mobile devices become more readily available and spread out--and as entertainment goes more digital--the entertainment industry is looking to data centers to help deliver content and store, secure and backup files.

As more content providers deliver their entertainment to consumers (Netflix, Hulu, HBOGo and more recently, WWE Network), they've been using data centers to help provide the bandwidth, processing power and connectivity needed for their company.

Studios, casting and productions companies may also employ IT services for their databases, critical applications, files, software and other needs making data centers an ever-expanding and necessary part of the entertainment industry.

Data centers are notorious energy hogs, with the majority of power going towards cooling the equipment inside the facility.  

Some facilities employ water-cooled methods for keeping equipment at an optimal temperature, so Seattle wants to take the excess water that is used to cool the facility from two local data centers and reroute it to help heat nearby buildings--up to 10 million square feet of space.  This would allow facilities to cut down on their carbon footprint while still helping others.  The project is still in its infancy, but Seattle hopes to have the plan implemented by next year.

With rising energy costs, should more cities look into projects like this to offset any carbon footprint and use existing infrastructures to help power other parts of the city?

A new survey by the NSBA shows that 40% of small business owners handle their own IT and are incredibly concerned about technology, its cost and maintenance.  

Colocation can be a great cost effective, secure and reliable alternative to handling your own IT.  Small businesses benefit from the security, connectivity and reliability while still saving money and time.

Has anybody colocated their IT infrastructure and how did it work out for you?

Maintaining UPTIME at whatever cost seems to be the highest priority for DC Managers. Our Airflow solution has qualified some of our customers for energy utility rebates. Imagine if they started pooling/recycling energy resources as you suggest.
