According to a new report, "Green Data Centers", from Pike Research, the investment in green data center management will increase from $7.5 billion in global revenue to $41.4 billion by 2015, representing 28 percent of the total data center market. As noted in this Business Wire news release, Pike Research's analysis also indicated that power and cooling infrastructure solutions will be the largest portion of the green data center market opportunity.


Pike Research says the investment in greener data centers will experience rapid growth over the next five years.

"Woods adds that the green data center has evolved in response to concern over energy use, but it is also connected to the broader transformation that data centers are undergoing. This transformation encompasses technical innovation, operational improvement, new design principles, and changes to the relationship between IT and business. The data center of the future will be energy efficient; it will also be virtualized, to ensure optimal use of IT resources, space and energy, and it will be more dynamic in its operation, adaptable to new business needs and new technology opportunities.

"Pike Research’s analysis indicates that power and cooling infrastructure solutions will be the largest portion of the green data center market opportunity, representing 46% of revenue over the next five years. Energy efficient IT equipment will be the second largest category with 41% of the market, and monitoring and management will follow with 14% of total revenue."
