Expanding existing data centers is a headache for organizations today: Available space, cost of cooling to meet new technology requirements, difficultly in recruiting IT personnel, limitations in power distribution and in many cases, pollutant power sources, can make this a very challenging and complex process. In addition to this, some EU countries will soon demand CO2 taxes as well, adding to the complexity and cost level for organizations.
