As more mobile devices send data to the edge and the cloud, data centers will need to develop a hybrid approach to their infrastructure that addresses long transmission times that can lead to downtime for mission-critical applications. A new white paper from Belden explores why low-latency hybrid edge computing is the future of the data center market.
This white paper from Anritsu outlines the PCI Express (PCIe) 6.0 standards slated for finalization by PCI-SIG in 2021. The paper covers the enhanced PCIe 6.0 technologies and provides guidelines on selecting the proper test solutions to verify PCIe 6.0 designs.
Chiller and cooling technology that was state-of-the-art fifteen years ago can still handle the growth in server rack heat density seen today, but it demands wasteful power and water consumption. A new white paper from Nortek Data Center Cooling outlines a path to data center sustainability that balances power and water utilization.
Businesses are revamping their data center geo-diversity strategies and relying heavily on technologies like edge cloud computing. A new white paper from Venyu explores the importance of geo-diverse data center locations in today’s business environment.
Rather than focus on getting a data center as close to home as possible, this shift in infrastructure strategy means factors like total cost of ownership (TCO), flexibility, performance, “righteousness,” take precedence.
With an 18 to 24 month construction phase for most large data centers, the industry needs new strategies to meet the needs of the rapidly expanding global colocation market. Project buffering can eliminate many of the threats that inhibit data center speed-to-market, including market demand for OFCI equipment, supply chain issues, labor shortages, and conflicts around the just-in-time delivery of mission critical equipment.
Phoenix’s data center friendly business environment has made it a destination for providers from other markets – particularly California – who are seeking to place data center assets in a location with low disaster risk, either for primary or backup data centers. A DCF special report looks at what lies ahead for this important market.
Whether it be an earthquake, tornado, cyberattack, or a black out, natural and man-made disasters can have a catastrophic impact on businesses, especially data centers where 100% uptime is expected. A new white paper from Stream Data Centers outlines best practices for disaster planning in mission-critical environments like data centers.
As the data center industry grows and evolves to meet the changing needs of its customers, data center owners need strategic solutions for how people, processes and technology can safeguard mission critical infrastructure during uncertain times.
It is imperative in today’s fast-paced data center environment that product and service innovations be rolled out quickly and safely. A new white paper from QTS explains how microservices have boosted the speed, flexibility, and resilience of their proprietary Service Delivery Platform (SDP).
