Delivering OLTP Database Technology Aimed at Optimal Business Outcomes

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Dec 06, 2013
Most enterprise datacenters are so cluttered with individually constructed servers, including database servers, that staff time is largely taken up with just the maintenance of these systems. As a result, IT service to business users suffers, and the agility of the enterprise suffers. Integrated systems represent an antidote to this problem. By dramatically reducing the amount of setup and maintenance time for the applications and databases they support, integrated systems enable the technical staff to spend more of their time supporting users and enabling the enterprise to thrive.

The Eaton Rack and Enclosures Fundamentals Handbook

Published By: Eaton     Published Date: Feb 08, 2017
Not so many years ago, network closets, server rooms and data centers were designed from a “room to rack” standpoint. Deciding specifically where to store your technology typically came later in the design process. However, rapid technology refresh cycles, the need to rackmount more equipment and the desire for increased cooling capacities in an enclosed rack (known as an enclosure), have all begun to reverse that trend. Today, IT professionals are designing these critical workspaces with more of a “rack to room” methodology.

Benchmark Testing of the High-Performance Enterprise Server for Microsoft® SQL Server

Published By: NEC     Published Date: Aug 26, 2014
In addition to high reliability and availability, enterprise mission critical applications, data centers operating 24x7, and data analysis platforms all demand powerful data processing capabilities and stability. The NEC PCIe SSD Appliance for Microsoft® SQL Server® is a best-practice reference architecture for such demanding workloads. It comprises an Express 5800 Scalable Enterprise Server Series with Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family CPUs, high-performance HGST FlashMAX II PCIe server-mounted flash storage, and Microsoft® SQL Server® 2014. When compared with the previous reference architecture based on a server with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family CPUs, benchmark testing demonstrated a performance improvement of up to 173% in logical scan rate in a data warehouse environment. The testing also demonstrated consistently fast and stable performance in online transaction processing (OLTP) that could potentially be encountered.

Practical Options for Deploying Small Server Rooms and Micro Data Centers

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Feb 12, 2018
Small server rooms and branch offices are typically unorganized, unsecure, hot, unmonitored, and space constrained. These conditions can lead to system downtime or, at the very least, lead to “close calls” that get management’s attention. Practical experience with these problems reveals a short list of effective methods to improve the availability of IT operations within small server rooms and branch offices. This paper discusses making realistic improvements to power, cooling, racks, physical security, monitoring, and lighting. The focus of this paper is on small server rooms and branch offices with up to 10kW of IT load.

Choosing Between Room, Row, and Rack-based Cooling for Data Centers

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Jun 07, 2019
Latest generation high density and variable density IT equipment create conditions that traditional data center cooling was never intended to address, resulting in cooling systems that are oversized, inefficient, and unpredictable. Room, row, and rack-based cooling methods have been developed to address these problems. This paper describes these improved cooling methods and provides guidance on when to use each type for most next generation data centers.

Practical Considerations for Implementing Prefabricated Data Centers

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Jun 07, 2019
Implementing prefabricated modular data centers results in well-understood benefits including speed of deployment, predictability, scalability, and lifecycle cost. The process of deploying them – from designing the data center, to preparing the site, to procuring the equipment, to installation – is quite different than that of a traditional data center. This paper presents practical considerations, guidance, and results that a data center manager should expect from such a deployment.

Customer Insight: Future proofing your colocation business

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Jun 07, 2019
While enterprises continue to own and operate in-house datacenters, their use of colocation and other outsourcing services is growing fast. Demand for colocation and wholesale datacenters, with their readily available space and power, their professional operations teams and, increasingly, their rich connectivity and value-added offerings, has never been stronger. 451 Research forecasts that the operational square footage of the global colocation and wholesale sector will grow at a healthy 7% CAGR from 2017 to 2020.

Prefabricated Data Centers: Business Advantages for Colocation Providers

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Jun 07, 2019
New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS). Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors. Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line? A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL. Download the white paper to learn more.

Controlling, Even Reducing, Energy Costs in Data Centers

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 22, 2008
If you're looking to decrease power consumption in your existing data center (and who isn't?), the first step should be a detailed diagnosis. If, on the other hand, you’re constructing a new data center, or expanding or upgrading your current center, it’s critical that energy efficiency is built in from the start. This short IBM video addresses both.

The Positive Role IT Can Play in the Greening of Business

Published By: Quocirca     Published Date: Sep 13, 2007
The general public is becoming increasingly cynical about the environment claims of businesses and with much bad press around data centers, information technology (IT) is in the front line. But data centers are actually the easiest bit of IT to control and consolidating infrastructure into them can help reduce the overall energy usage of IT and, if used well, IT itself can help businesses reduce their overall carbon footprint.
