Data Center Material Handling Solutions

July 30, 2018

Roughly 600 zettabytes (600 trillion gigabytes) of new data is created each year due to factors like increasing connectivity. This equates to 200% more traffic than current data centers can handle. To keep pace with the growth of data, the industry is expected to have to build about 4,000 new facilities by the year 2020.

The rapid data center industry growth that we are currently in the midst of makes for a tremendous business opportunity that may also bring several challenges. With the influx of heavy equipment that the average data center employee is expected to handle and the likelihood they may not have enough manpower to take care of it, it is crucial to find ways to improve the efficiency of data centers now more than ever.
