Is your data-center ready for virtualization?

Published By: Eaton Corp.     Published Date: Jun 01, 2009
Virtualization can deliver dramatic benefits for data centers, but it can also stress the underlying support infrastructure.  Power and cooling systems—which may have been quite sufficient for pre-virtualization needs—could easily become inadequate when data center performance patterns are radically altered.  This paper describes some of power challenges related to virtualization—and the readily available technologies to address them.

Inquiry Spotlight: Server Virtualization, Q3 2008

Published By: NetApp     Published Date: Apr 21, 2009
As organizations continue to deploy server virtualization, questions have shifted from "if" to "how." Out of all 220 inquiries Forrester's IT infrastructure and operations team answered on data centers, servers, and virtual appliances in 2008 to date, 72 were specifically in regard to server virtualization. These IT professionals' most common inquiries addressed vendor comparison, optimum physical to virtual consolidation ratios, expected ROI, and situation-specific concerns regarding the possible benefits that virtual servers could provide. These inquiries came from organizations in the early stages of implementing server virtualization — if you are considering or are in the process of implementing, you too should be asking these questions.

Assessments: Ammunition for Facts-Based Decision Making (Podcast Transcription)

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Mar 25, 2009
Data centers are large, important investments that when properly designed, built and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise, yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems, with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems, such as thermal hot spots, lack of UPS, rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

The Multi-tiered Hybrid Data Center

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Mar 25, 2009
To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.

Sticker Shock: The High Cost Of Data Centers

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Mar 25, 2009
The need for reliable data centers is growing, especially in the small to medium sized business market.  So too is the price of data centers -- both in terms of initial cost and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) -- as equipment, service and utility costs continue to escalate.  How is a data center manager going to support an IT-based business strategy that hinges on high availability, at a reasonable business cost?  Insource? Outsource? Build? Lease? This presentation looks at the factors driving data centers costs, their impact, how they can be controlled, and how to justify the data center you need.

Alcatel-Lucent Data Center Transformation

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Mar 25, 2009
When Alcatel bought out Lucent at the end of 2006, the two companies had already begun planning data center consolidations of their own, but the merger changed all that. As it turns out, the merged company created a plan to consolidate 25 data centers and 125 server rooms down to six data centers and just a few server rooms. This change has presented challenges, especially in terms of arranging downtime and dealing with employees' attachment to their servers and applications, but the company is on pace to meet it’s goal of reducing IT operational cost by 25% over three years.

Energy Efficiency in the Data Center Exploring the Inherent compatibility of Green Initiatives

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Feb 18, 2009
Today's IT executives are not only expected to create and maintain high-availability IT environments, but they are also expected to implement green initiatives to satisfy customers, analysts, and government agencies that are worried about the impact of modern, energy-thirsty data centers on the environment. Is such a dual mandate reasonable? Can companies be expected to maintain service levels and reduce their carbon footprints at the same time? The White Paper offers a description of the different types of services available to improved energy efficiency data center design and a prescription for successful implementation.

New World Data Center Environment: Facilities for High-Density Computing

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Feb 18, 2009
Today's data centers are embarking down a path in which "old world" business, technology, and facility metrics are being pushed aside in order to provide unparalleled service delivery capabilities, processes, and methodologies. The expectations derived from today’s high-density technology deployments are driving service delivery models to extremes with very high service delivery capabilities adopted as baseline requirements within today’s stringent business models. Part of the "revolution" that is driving today's data center modeling to unprecedented high performance and efficiency levels is the fact that computer processing advances with regard to high-performance and smaller footprints have truly countered each other.

The New Reality of Balance and Optimization in Planning Green Data Centers

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Feb 18, 2009
The recent release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on data center energy efficiency is adding fuel to the fire in the research and development of new ways to reduce energy use in centers. The findings, summarized on the EPA website, are staggering: Data centers consumed about 60 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2006, roughly 1.5 percent of total US electricity consumption -Energy consumption of servers and data centers has doubled in the past five years and is expected to almost double again in the next five years to more than 100 billion kWh, costing about $7.4 billion annually.
