Hybrid IT enables enterprises to close the gap between the legacy enterprise IT model and what modern cloud-based products can achieve. In this week’s Voices of the Industry, CoreSite President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Szurek explores the future of the hybrid cloud and the benefits of hybrid-ready data centers.
While the merits of in-house vs. cloud vs. colo have been vigorously debated — and will likely continue for some time — a new report is aimed at those already sold on the colo concept. Download the white paper from Instor for considerations, tips and potential landmines to watch out for those looking to utilize colocation in 2018.
Data centers are a critical part of the infrastructure that supports the modern economy, not only in the technology sector, but in advanced manufacturing, entertainment, finance, healthcare, information, retail, telecommunications, and almost every other sector of the economy as well.

A dramatic shift is occurring in the enterprise data center that affects how information across the organization is stored, accessed and retrieved. In this week’s Voices of the Industry, James Young, global enterprise data center lead at CommScope, shares the ins and outs of high speed migration and what your business needs to know to keep up with fast-paced changes.
The best-prepared companies not only connect to the latest and greatest technologies, but they also connect back to legacy solutions. BASELAYER’s Shay Demmons shares how to utilize legacy technology, as well as new tech, while planning for the data centers of the future.
Whether you’re building a new data center, moving to a colocation facility, or transitioning to a cloud/hybrid environment, a data center migration is a complicated, risky endeavor. And many crucial considerations for success often aren’t considered at all in the planning and execution of data center migration.
There’s no economic, strategic or rational reason to build your own data center. None! If you’re a fast-growing cloud provider, social media firm or enterprise company with a large IT footprint, you may believe private data centers are a necessity. You may believe you have very valid reasons for wanting to build your own private data center. To learn more download this white paper.
Ponemon Institute and Vertiv are pleased to present the results of the first Vertiv Data Center IQ Quiz, part of the Data Center Performance Benchmark Series, which provides an industry-wide perspective on Availability, Security, Productivity, Cost and Speed of Deployment. The purpose of this study is to determine the domain knowledge of data center personnel while also collecting data on application of best practices and current operating conditions within participants’ data centers.
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.
Power consumption in the data center continues to be a rising trend. The need to provide redundant power systems with high reliability and availability of compute resources is a major driving force for the increase in power utilization. Some data centers use just as much power for non-compute or “overhead energy” like cooling, lighting and power conversions, as they do to power servers. The ultimate goal is to reduce this “overhead energy” loss, so that more power is dedicated to revenue-generating equipment, without jeopardizing reliability and availability of resources.
