Data centres have money to spend: survey

 

Drive down costs, replace old systems.

Over half of Australia's data centre managers plan to increase the amount they spend on infrastructure in the next year, a survey has found.

The survey of 83 data centre managers was conducted by vendor Stulz at the recent Data Centre Strategics conference in Sydney.

About a quarter of those with money said they planned to use it to drive down the cost of their operations.

Another quarter said the money would be used to replace ageing systems.

Barriers to new investment were also canvassed; over a third of respondents felt their data centre procurement teams "were presented with solutions from vendors which lacked integration or compatibility with existing infrastructure", the survey found.
