With the emergence of cloud computing and virtualisation, Data Centre holds the key to future Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure management, technology expert has said.

The prediction is premised on the earlier predictions that more than 75 per cent of all businesses will adopt some form of cloud computing for their ICT infrastructure within the next few years.

According to the Director of business and Strategy of KITS Technologies limited, Mr. Taofeek Okoya, the enormous bandwidth capacity that the fibre marine cable players like Main One, Glo1 and recently WACS offers Data Centre, would create a viable business enabler towards cloud computing. It is evident now that the evolution of ICT infrastructure is massively influenced by consolidation, virtualisation, and automation as enterprise businesses and firms work to increase services levels and lower costs while introducing the flexibility necessary to keep up with rapidly changing business needs.

Okoya explained that the recent Google CEO/CIO conference, where Google showcased how its application suits hosted in the cloud could simplify business communication and collaboration, speaks volume of how Data Centre would rapidly simplify ICT business operations and reduce bottom-lines.

“It is against this background that KITS technologies will be hosting industry stakeholders to a 5 day intensive training geared towards creating key ICT transformations that will have significant impacts on how we design, plan, build and manage our data centres. The training focuses on excellent understanding of the key elements of Data Centre design including how to layout the rooms and the racks and size the air conditioning and electrical systems as well as understanding other systems such as fire protection, detection and suppression as in addition to Data Centre security,” he said.

According to him, efficient Data Centre management would also be discussed, covering all policies and procedures which should be in place to run the Data Centre with core emphasis on reliability, efficiency and security.
