Analysis of Data Center Architectures Supporting Open Compute Project (OCP)

Published By: CDW - APC     Published Date: Apr 07, 2016
Open Compute has had a significant impact on the thinking about data center design. Until now, the focus has been on systems at the rack level, leaving unanswered questions about the power infrastructure upstream of the rack. In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility. We introduce simplified reference designs that support OCP and provide a capital cost analysis to compare traditional and OCP-based designs. We also present an online TradeOff Tool that allows data center decision makers to better understand the cost differences and cost drivers to various architectures.

Quantitative Analysis of a Prefabricated vs. Traditional Data Center

Published By: CDW - APC     Published Date: Apr 07, 2016
Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers, including flexibility, improved predictability, and faster speed of deployment. Cost , however, is sometimes stated as a barrier to deploying these designs. In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come at a capex premium . The analysis was completed and validated with Romonet’s Cloud-based Analytics Platform, a vendor-neutral industry resource.

TCO Analysis of a Traditional Data Center vs. a Scalable, Containerized Data Center

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Jun 04, 2014
Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a “total cost of ownership” (TCO) savings of 30% compared to traditional, built-out data center power and cooling infrastructure. Avoiding overbuilt capacity and scaling the design over time contributes to a significant percentage of the overall savings. This white paper provides a quantitative TCO analysis of the two architectures, and illustrates the key drivers of both the capex and opex savings of the improved architecture.

HP 3PAR Online Import for EMC Storage

Published By: HP     Published Date: Jul 22, 2014
HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage arrays are rapidly being adopted into many IT data centers. With the adoption of the array comes the need to support a non-disruptive method (supported by OS) to import data from aging architectures to new HP 3PAR StoreServ arrays. There is an increasing demand to support the migration from non-HP standard storage arrays to HP 3PAR StoreServ arrays as part of the migrations. In the past, HP has supported migrations from HP 3PAR to HP 3PAR using HP 3PAR Peer Motion technology and EVA to HP 3PAR using HP 3PAR Online Import as part of the federated storage movement. HP is now announcing the ability to migrate data from EMC arrays to HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage.

Data Center Trend: Distributed Power in the White Space

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Jan 26, 2016
Cloud computing vendors and colocation data centers make every effort to maximize the scalability, efficiency and agility of their data centers. As a result, more and more of them are looking into replacing older, transformer-based centralized power protection schemes with distributed architectures in which uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) reside in the white space (or data hall). This white paper describes the advantages of positioning UPSs in the white space as well as the essential qualities to look for in a white space-ready UPS.

Backup Basics: Distributed Vs Centralized Backup

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Jan 26, 2016
When designing a power protection scheme for their data center, IT and facilities managers must ask themselves whether a distributed or centralized backup strategy makes more sense. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question. Companies must weigh each architecture’s advantages and disadvantages against their financial constraints, availability needs and management capabilities before deciding which one to employ. This white paper will simplify the decision-making process and lessen the potential weaknesses of whichever strategy you ultimately select.

ZK Research WP: A Data Center Fabric is Critical to a Next-Generation Data

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Apr 10, 2015
The data center has gone through many major evolutionary changes over the past several decades, and each change has been defined by major shifts in architectures. The industry moved from the mainframe era to client/server computing and then to Internet computing. In 2011, another major shift began: the shift to a virtual data center. This has been the primary driver in enabling customers to transition to the cloud and ultimately IT as a service. The shift to a virtual data center will be the single biggest transition in the history of computing. It will reshape all the major data center tiers: applications, storage, servers and the network.

Classic Network Design Using Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
The data center infrastructure is central to the overall IT architecture. It is where most business-critical applications are hosted and various types of services are provided to the business. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered. Another important aspect of the data center design is the flexibility to quickly deploy and support new services. Designing a flexible architecture that can support new applications in a short time frame can result in a significant competitive advantage. The basic data center network design is based on a proven layered approach that has been tested and improved over the past several years in some of the largest data center implementations in the world. The layered approach is the foundation of a data center design that seeks to improve scalability, performance, flexibility, resiliency, and maintenance.
