A new market has boomed around the world and the currency is data. Globally, the data stored in data centres will quintuple by 2020 to reach 915 EB by 2020, up 5.3-fold (a CAGR of 40%) from 171 EB in 2015. (Source: Cisco Global Cloud Index: Forecast and Methodology, 2015-2020).
Overall data centre workloads will more than double (2.6-fold) and cloud workloads will more than triple (3.2-fold) from 2015 to 2020, so there needs to be a corresponding rise in data centre physical security to match this demand.
Since the very first digital ‘virus’ was detected detected in the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) in the form of the Creeper Virus in the early 1970s, the development of digital security practices against attack has been at the forefront of data security. However, at the same time; it has often been held that the physical security of the data has, shall we say; stalled.
This is why CLD Fencing Systems has developed a range of Data Centre Fencing and Gate Solutions that offer the highest level of protection with guaranteed delay against attack for your next project.
