Your data center is directly aligned with your business success. Now, learn the three critical data center components to help create a future-proof IT strategy!
An efficient infrastructure is a healthy one which provides real-world business value. Now, find out some key data center design best practices to deliver efficiency beyond power and cooling.
Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) has become more vital than ever to data center operations. The insight provided by these systems has historically only been accessible to the data center operations team, not the colocated customer. Now that the technology sector as a whole is becoming increasingly user friendly, transparent and hands on, it makes sense for colocation data centers to offer a higher level of insight and transparency into their clients’ individual environments. This white paper examines the benefits of being able to monitor colocation environments as well as the issues that can arise from the lack of visibility.
CyrusOne quick-delivery data center product provides a solution for
cloud technology, social media and enterprise companies that have
trouble building or obtaining data center capacity fast enough to support their information technology (IT) infrastructure. In trying to keep pace with overwhelming business growth, these companies often find it hard to predict their future capacity needs. A delay in obtaining data center space can also delay or stop a company’s revenue-generating initiatives, and have significant negative impact on the bottom line.
The case for a re-envisioned data center is being made every day, and at an increasingly urgent pace. Growing technology demands, transforming global economics, corporate efficiency initiatives, and required business agility are among the drivers making change not merely a strategy, but a prerequisite for survival.
In this white paper, we explore new concepts around data center demand, where energy efficiency and cooling optimization fit in and modern best practices around your data center.
There is significant time spent in the data center industry discussing data center infrastructure design or the Tier rating of a data center. With so much focus on the critical systems infrastructure design of a data center (specifically the electrical and mechanical systems) it leaves the impression that this is the key to predicting the reliability of a data center.
Ponemon Institute and Emerson Network Power are pleased to present the results of the latest Cost of Data Center Outages study. Previously published in 2010 and 2013, the purpose of this third study is to continue to analyze the cost behavior of unplanned data center outages. According to our new study, the average cost of a data center outage has steadily increased from $505,502 in 2010 to $740,357 today (or a 38 percent net change).
Ideas and concepts defining security have changed dramatically in the past 10 to 15 years. There was a time when security meant physical security, such as guards, gates and alarm consoles. With the advent of distributed computing and the rise of
the Internet, data center security has become a recognized discipline requiring a blend of technical, policy and business acumen, and thoroughly professional practitioners. In the years since, data protection has come to occupy the attention of the C-suite, and savvy information security professionals understand that the foundation for a strong enterprise security program includes physical protection of assets.
Trying to maximize efficiency in a data center design that is on focused only on power and cooling strategies is short-cited. There are other efficiencies that will enhance the data center’s ability to cost-effectively adapt to business strategy changes and increased computing demand. Download this whitepaper today to learn how data center solution should be designed with five key goals; guaranteed performance, saving time, optimizing space, enhance experience by utilizing resources and enable sustainability.
