Emerson Network Power has examined the growth and growing importance of the data centre in its 2011 State of the Data Centre infographic.

Some points from the infographic:

  • When Internet users perform search engine queries, make purchases on their favourite retailer’s website or connect with friends via social media, data centres are making it all happen.

  • For example: $53 Billion in cyber weekend sales is larger than the entire economy of Bulgaria. With so much activity and reliance on the internet, having a reliable data centre infrastructure is more important than ever.

  • In 2011 mankind created 1.2 trillion gigabytes (GB) of data, equivalent to 75 billion 16 GB iPods. That’s more than enough for every person on earth to own 10 iPods.

  • The growing dependence on the data centre means growing consequences of downtime. If all 509,147 data centres went out 2.5 times (based on an average) for a duration of 134 minutes, that would equal 2,842,737 hours of downtime, at a total loss of $426 billion a year.
