Data Center Technology in 2007

According to Gartner, the top 10 data center related technologies for 2007 are:

  1. Open source software
  2. Virtualization
  3. Information access
  4. Ubiquitous computing
  5. Grid computing
  6. Utility Computing
  7. Multi-core processors
  8. Web 2.0
  9. Network convergence
  10. Water cooling in the data center

I'm going to add one more: Power. With more power required per rack, uninterrupted, reliable and redundant power (and the rising costs of it) will be a factor.
