Blockchain Technology and its Potentials to the Future of Data Center


As business organizations have a deeper understanding of the blockchain values, it will be widely adopted. IDC predicts that by 2021, global annual spending on blockchain solutions will reach to US$9.7 billion.


According to CCID Blockchain Research Institute statistics, in 2019, there were 328 blockchain application projects in China. In which, 96 financial application projects, accounting for 29%, compared with 2018, the year-on-year increase of 41%.

So, what impacts will blockchain technology to the future of data centers? What will it apply?

1. Cost Saving for the Data Centers

The blockchain-based management system will increase transparency in operations and cost savings. Use this technology to track, and link IT assets, power, cooling, and space resources. It’s also used for data working order management system, share ledger systems and reduce human errors through rule-based automation.

Facing the big energy consumption in the data center, blockchain can supervise all equipment and lines to achieve energy-saving layout. The benefits of its distributed architecture, tamper-proof and collaborative consensus, it can build an energy-saving and reliable data monitoring and collection network covering for the entire data center. It allows energy consumption monitoring to be collected and processed in stages, production links, and supplied channels, to achieve energy conservation and emission reduction in the data centers.

With blockchain, all data in the data center can be made transparent, hidden costs are eliminated, management efficiency is improved, and operation and maintenance costs are greatly reduced.

2. Reliable and Secure Data Protection

Blockchain was initially only used to protect cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, and soon they were also used to provide data security outside the financial sector. The data centers that store sensitive data are the most suitable by applying the blockchain technology because the encryption method used by blockchain can distribute data among multiple servers.

This method makes the blockchain difficult to invade, because each block usually only contains the cryptographic hash function of the previous block. The core of the blockchain is to achieve high security and high reliability of data without the inclusion of a centralized intermediary.

3. Intelligent Data Center Management

In an era of edge computing, the Internet of Things, exponential data growth, blockchain technology can help data centers keep data secured while maintaining synchronization. In the future, DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) or DMaaS (Data Center Management as a Service) tools can rely on distributed ledger technology to assist more data center sites and collocation tenants to implement better capacity management.

The data sorted through the blockchain will have great value and facilitate AI learning and form efficient algorithms. It realizes the self-management of the data center, reduce human intervention, and improve the efficiency of data center operations.


Blockchain technology is mysterious and unpredictable, making many complicated things efficient and simple. At present, the blooming of its applications from everywhere, but most of them are still stay on the surface, and there is much more worthy of our exploration and research. In the next two to three years, blockchain technology is expected to mature at a “rocketed” speed. In the next 5 to 10 years, we will see this technology is widely used in our daily life.
