Data centers are expanding at a mind-boggling rate. The global colocation market is expected to grow to $50.18 billion by the end of 2020, and regional data center hubs are adding capacity at record rates. While the industry is concentrating on building new facilities, what happens when the sites we already have need to be upgraded? IT equipment in a data center will need replacing, perhaps every three to five years. The mechanical and electrical parts of the facility have a longer lifetime, perhaps ten to twenty years. But during this time, they will also need maintenance, and eventually, replacement and upgrading. And these jobs will impact the whole data center.
