As a leading provider of Data Center and Network services, Astreya understands the importance of staying up-to-date with the latest industry trends and insights. That’s why we were intrigued by McKinsey’s recent article, “Investing in the rising data-center economy,” which highlights several key points that resonate with our own experiences in this field.

Firstly, the article notes that data centers are becoming increasingly important for a wide range of industries, from finance and healthcare to retail and transportation. At Astreya, we’ve seen this trend firsthand as more and more businesses rely on our secure and reliable data center and network services to design and support infrastructure to transport, store, manage, and access critical information across the globe.

Another key point highlighted in the article is the need for data centers to use innovations emerging in areas like artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and 5G networking. Data centers must be equipped to handle the growing demand for computing power and storage capacity. Astreya understands the importance of staying ahead of the pace with rapidly evolving technologies, which is why we invest heavily in research and development and hire highly qualified engineers to ensure that our data center solutions remain cutting-edge.

The article also emphasizes the importance of energy efficiency and sustainability in data center design. At Astreya, we’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint and helping our clients do the same by implementing solutions for the long-term and utilizing sustainable practices when possible to minimize our environmental impact.

Furthermore, we concur with the sentiments surrounding Edge Computing and we fully comprehend the need for an organization to determine their best architecture for their IT environment. The “one size fits all” approach of moving everything to the cloud is an antiquated conclusion and it’s important to partner with an organization that understands every IT environment is unique. Public cloud, colocation, edge computing, and on-premise hardware need to be evaluated and designed to suit your specific needs for performance, resilience, and security.

Overall, we agree with McKinsey’s assessment that data centers will continue to play an increasingly vital role in the global economy.
