A SOLID DATA CENTER STRATEGY STARTS WITH INTERCONNECTIVITY

Published By: Equinix     Published Date: Oct 27, 2014
Connections are great. Having a network to connect to is even better. Humans have been connecting, in one form or another, throughout history. Our cities were born from the drive to move closer to each other so that we might connect. And while the need to connect hasn’t changed, the way we do it definitely has. Nowhere is this evolution more apparent than in business. In today’s landscape, business is more virtual, geographically dispersed and mobile than ever, with companies building new data centers and clustering servers in separate locations.

Executive Planning for the Evolving Data Center (ESG)

Published By: HPE     Published Date: Oct 07, 2014
So far, most data centers have virtualized their least-critical workloads as a matter of basic cost containment. Virtualizing mission-critical applications is still forthcoming for the majority,though, largely due to infrastructural concerns. Complicating matters is the shift in IT purchasing decisions from IT to business management. Integrated Computing Platforms (ICPs), private cloud computing, and public cloud services all leverage virtualization to achieve a number of IT and business goals, including increased ROI, reduced OpEx, and business process improvement. Now more than ever, it makes sense to explore the benefits of ICPs. Find expert data center considerations here.

Seeing the Voice of the Customer: Identifying Root Cause with Text Analysis Visualization

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Sep 30, 2014
Stop to think about how – and how often – your business interacts with customers. Every day, with each interaction, data is created. What percentage of the data generated by these interactions are you using? There are so many channels for interaction, like social media, call centers, sales staff, help and support resources, marketing and campaigns. Typically, organizations believe that they are using only a small fraction of it effectively – at best, upwards of 10 percent of all the available data. Why? One reason relates to the difficulties in collecting all this data. This limitation is beginning to wane as commodity hardware becomes increasingly popular for big data storage. But another major inhibitor to examining all customer data has been the inability to examine millions, or even billions, of data points that constitute the customer picture. And much of this is now in the form of unstructured text inputs.

Increase Rack Cooling Efficiency and Solve Heat-Related Problems

Published By: Tripp Lite     Published Date: Sep 11, 2014
Cooling tends to take a back seat to other concerns when server rooms and small to mid-size data centers are first built. As computing needs grow, increased heat production can compromise equipment performance and cause shutdowns. Haphazard data center expansion creates cooling inefficiencies that magnify these heat-related problems. Users may assume that they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is expensive and often unnecessary. In most cases, low-cost rack cooling best practices will solve heat-related problems. Best practices optimize airflow, increase efficiency, prevent downtime and reduce costs.

The Rise Of The Protection Storage Architecture

Published By: CDW     Published Date: Sep 10, 2014
Leading organizations don’t think of data protection in traditional back-office terms—and that’s no accident. They think and act like service providers, and in doing so transform data protection operations from mere cost centers to business enablers. Traditional data protection architectures can’t meet today’s challenges of massive growth, application performance, and data availability. And they aren't designed for services-oriented business models.

Consolidating Remote Servers and Storage for Security, Efficiency

Published By: Riverbed     Published Date: Sep 05, 2014
Many organizations have invested in server consolidation, particularly in their data centers. In remote offices, though, servers and storage exist as isolated islands of infrastructure that require management through separate operational processes and procedures. This approach could place data at risk. A new kind of storage architecture allows IT to consolidate remote servers and data in the data center by decoupling storage from its server over any distance—even thousands of miles—and still get the same performance as if the storage remained local to the branch. Organizations can now consolidate remote infrastructure to increase security and ef?ciency, without adversely impacting end-user performance in branch of?ces.
