At peak power utilization, the data center will use almost 100 MW of power, which equals the utilization the largest data center in the World. The hosted Data Center market is a booming space with huge potential for growth. Enterprises today face a multitude of business challenges, which are propelling them to outsource their Data center operations. Demand for Hosted Data centers has been on a high due to factors like cost optimization, power, cooling, data security and disaster recovery expertise. Analysts forecast that the hosted data center market is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 18.4% in 2011 through 2016. India's Data center market for raised floor space has been growing at a healthy 25% to 30% annual rate in the last three years. IDC estimates that the amount of information managed by enterprise data centers will grow 50 times over the next decade, and in the next two-three years alone the number of servers installed will increase by 49 percent over those installed currently.
