Data centers of all sizes should be aware of the how the standards for 400 Gigabit and 800 Gigabit are developing and being implemented. A new white paper from Siemon explores the factors data center owners and operators should consider when determining which path to 400G they should take.
Technical professionals don’t generally think of network monitoring and associate it with rich opportunities for innovation and advancement. A new white paper from Park Place Technologies explores how data center network monitoring gives IT the power to embrace innovation.
To support operations, today’s data centers need a totally different type of infrastructure from what was required just a few years ago. Join Rich Miller and TMGcore’s JD Enright for a webinar on Feb. 23 to learn about the current state of data center cooling.
The top cloud platforms are extending the life of their server and storage gear, citing studies of equipment reliability and refinements in software. AWS now says its servers have a ‘useful life” of five years, while Google and Microsoft expect servers to last for four years.
Advancements in technology are relieving IO bottlenecks and ushering in a new era that will be dominated by Terabit computing for servers. Xilinx explores explores the benefits of adaptable SmartNIC architecture and how it will drive next generation data centers.
Intel will invest $20 billion to create two cutting-edge chip factories in New Albany, Ohio next to a cluster of hyperscale data centers, including large cloud campuses for Facebook, Google and Amazon Web Services.
Compute and storage are typically the priority in micro data center racks, so cooling, uninterruptible power supplies, batteries, security, and fire protection must all compete for whatever space is left. In this white paper, Viking Integrated Safety outlines their 1U fire protection solution that provides smoke detection and residue-free extinguishing.
The complexity of integrating new equipment into a rack can equate to long lead times for the deployment of new services or solutions. In a new white paper, ASA Computers explores how optimized pre-integrated racks sent directly from the factory can reduce solution deployment times.
Price and response time continue to be key infrastructure decision drivers for IT professionals. A new white paper from Service Express reveals the results of a recent survey of US IT professionals, including their data center priorities.
As an increasing amount of our day-to-day activities have at least one foot in the internet, we are generating a nearly incomprehensible amount of data. Brad Alexander, Chief Technology Officer at DartPoints shares six key benefits of containerization, including how it can reduce the strain of increasing IT demands.
