Social media, mobile, analytics, cloud (SMAC), internet of things (IoT) with large number of connected sensors (connected devices, connected cars etc) are driving data explosion requiring larger storage of data, need for high availability for real time analysis. Datacenters play a key role in not only facilitating the deployment of such large volumes of data but also make them available through redundant power, fault-tolerant network, scalable storage to address the growing needs of digital economy through agility and innovation. Tier-4 datacenters across the globe are most suited for the new demands of digital economy as they provide 99.995% uptime (Near zero downtime) mitigating risk and ensuring seamless applications availability. Besides this, Software Defined Networking (SDN), Software Defined Storage, and intelligent management of datacenters are aligned to the evolving needs of modern world. Therefore, in my opinion, a datacenter is truly the backbone of digital economy.
