Creating the Network for the Future Digital Financial Institution

Published By: Juniper Networks     Published Date: Jun 22, 2017
The digital financial services world has created an amplified set of challenges for the data center and network. Its role in enabling the success of the wider institution has become even more critical, but to deliver this it needs to provide a higher level of performance with increased agility, while maintaining high levels of efficiency and security. This is forcing institutions to transform their underlying IT capabilities, with the need to simplify the network, obtain more flexible connectivity, automate IT operations, and enable centralized control and administration being core strategies in this respect. As shown in Figure 8, this is driving a number of requirements for the future network. Key considerations for financial institutions in architecture design and vendor selection should be around moving toward a software-defined, intelligent, cloud-ready, and open network that enables the institution to meet its ICT imperatives and achieve these key ICT strategies.

How to Gain Visibility Across Your Multi-Cloud Environment

Published By: VMware     Published Date: Nov 04, 2016
In order to keep pace with the business and developer demands inherent with the digital era, enterprise IT has picked up speed and scale by embracing the cloud. As a result of this mix of private on-premises clouds, hosted private clouds, and public cloud services, the modern data center has become a more complex and murky environment to manage. In the VMware eBook “How to Gain Visibility Across Your Multi-Cloud Environment,” we explore the power of the enterprise-ready cloud management platform (CMP) as a single solution for automating the delivery of IT resources, and managing those resources throughout their lifecycle across private and public clouds. Learn how you’ll gain the agility for accelerating IT delivery, the efficiency to improve OpEx and CapEx, the flexibility to leverage private or public cloud resources, and the level of control necessary to meet governance and security requirements.

The Drivers and Benefits of Edge Computing

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: May 09, 2016
Internet use is trending towards bandwidth-intensive content and an increasing number of attached “things”. At the same time, mobile telecom networks and data networks are converging into a cloud computing architecture. To support needs today and tomorrow, computing power and storage is being inserted out on the network edge in order to lower data transport time and increase availability. Edge computing brings bandwidth-intensive content and latency-sensitive applications closer to the user or data source. This white paper explains the drivers of edge computing and explores the various types of edge computing available.

Preventive Maintenance Strategy for Data Centers

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: May 09, 2016
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices. This white paper describes the types of PM services that can help safeguard the uptime of data centers and IT equipment rooms. Various PM methodologies and approaches are discussed. Recommended practices are suggested.

Virtualization and Cloud Computing: Optimized Power, Cooling, and Management Maximizes Benefits

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: May 09, 2016
IT virtualization, the engine behind cloud computing, can have significant consequences on the data center physical infrastructure (DCPI). Higher power densities that often result can challenge the cooling capabilities of an existing system. Reduced overall energy consumption that typically results from physical server consolidation may actually worsen the data center’s power usage effectiveness (PUE). Dynamic loads that vary in time and location may heighten the risk of downtime if rack-level power and cooling health are not understood and considered. Finally, the fault-tolerant nature of a highly virtualized environment could raise questions about the level of redundancy required in the physical infrastructure. These particular effects of virtualization are discussed and possible solutions or methods for dealing with them are offered.

The Unexpected Impact of Raising Data Center Temperatures

Published By: CDW - APC     Published Date: Apr 07, 2016
Raising IT inlet temperatures is a common recommendation given to data center operators as a strategy to improve data center efficiency. While it is true that raising the temperature does result in more economizer hours, it does not always have a positive impact on the data center overall. In this paper, we provide a cost (capex & energy) analysis of a data center to demonstrate the importance of evaluating the data center holistically, inclusive of the IT equipment energy. The impact of raising temperatures on server failures is also discussed.

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.
