Continued Hyperscale growth in large campus Data centers & Co-location facilities
Data in the recent past was considered as the foundation of an emerging economy. Almost all enterprises are using more data than what they did before and will probably consume even more data in the future. The rise of hyper scale data centers offer unique ways of energy efficiency and functionality to pace with robust IT infrastructure in India .It will also boost new business opportunities in the education sector, financial services, manufacturing, SMEs and related services that are involved in the streaming of large volumes of data services online. MEITY report says that the government is working on a scheme and a policy for incentivizing investments in India to boost the capacity of the DC ecosystem, also targeting drones, robotics segments to increase manufacturing. The current scale of hyper scale data centers in India compared in terms of power consumed is 200 Megawatts. The industry is expected to grow exponentially to reach 1,007 MW by 2023 from its existing capacity, a tenfold growth in a very short time.
As per latest report the hyper scale data center market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 12% during the period 2020-2026 witnessing USD 8 billion by 2026. With the leading Cloud-service providers, BFSI, retail and e-commerce, manufacturing sectors companies like Amazon Web Services, Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Apple to invest huge sums around USD 1 billion to USD 3 billion in a single campus due to their increased cloud workloads and to bring out the utmost efficiency. Mckinsey report stated it is expected by 2025 to reach 25 billion in India witnessing USD 8 billion by 2026.
As per Hindu business line media report Indian data centre industry attracts $396 million investments in 2020.
Market Drivers: Some of the key drivers that are directly influencing the hyperscale data center growth are cloud computing, software platforms, social media, and content delivery. Ever increasing market pressure to increase data rate speeds & reduce latency to enable today’s new digital applications such as: machine learning, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, 5G, internet of things, and streaming video games.
– As per the increasing data center traffic growing need for reduction in CAPEX and OPEX model. The increasing demand for edge facilities will lead to the adoption of high bandwidth switches and wireless equipment.
– The increasing adoption of digitalization, rising investments from telecommunication & service providers, and government initiatives towards the digital economy are significant factors for the hyperscale data center market growth
– Further the growing volume of Big Data across the business ecosystem the requirements for high application performance, growing needs for reduction in capital and operational expenditures, and increasing data center technology spending are the major growth drivers of the market
– Speaking about connecting to outside parts in India, the cable coming to India was under the command of the majority of Telcos. Now, hyperscalers themselves are participating in building the cables. As scalability has been a challenge In India it is getting addressed by new players in this market with change in data privacy rules and regulations.
W.Media is organizing an extensive networking & knowledge sharing webinar co hosted by AFL Hyperscale to discuss latest developments in the hyper scale data center market and their growth opportunities helpful in meeting the existing demand of an organization.

|11:20 AM||Power Panel Session: – Interlink between Campus Data center & Co–location Data Centers – An overview
As we continue to move into a more connected world ,around 40 percent of an organization’s workload runs in a combination of private and hybrid cloud and 60 percent is split between public cloud and internal infrastructures. This means that there is a significant amount of network traffic Hence having the right interconnection strategy is critical for an organization. As hyperscale data centers are necessary for cloud and big data storage, colocation data centers offer interconnection to Software as a Service (SaaS) such as Salesforce, or Platform as a service (PaaS) like Azure.
In this session, experts will navigate through the increasing challenges faced and the need to understand which components and design principles are best suited to their Organizational needs.
|11:55 AM||Power Panel Session: – Effect on Fiber Physical Infrastructure- Challenges in Hyperscale Data centers
Data-driven companies are constantly trying to meet demands, and one solution is to use “hyperscale” data centers i.e. data centers with more than 200,000 square feet. There are millions of servers inside these hyperscale data centers that are operating together using fiber optic networks to control the massive amount of data traffic required by users.Due to the increased number of servers and high density fiber connections they run very hot and thus require extensive cooling systems. One solution is that these hyperscale data centers need to bring more fiber into a smaller cable. Today fiber-optic cable makers have changed their process in a way that allows them to pack thousands of optical fibers into one cable. Such cable carries double or triple data in even less space and hence reduces the land size of data centers. This in turn allows for more accessible data center locations and better energy efficiency. With at least 500 storage cabinets covering 10,000 Sq. ft of space and over 5,000 servers connected with an ultra-high-speed fiber network it’s a challenge on the infrastructure cost to end users.
This session would discuss how enterprises can achieve scalability and to build a robust network infrastructure to meet the data center needs of tomorrow.
