Evaluating the Promise of DCIM

While DCIM is not a magic bullet, it does have the capability to give real-time insight into power, space, and cooling that helps you manage capacity, reduce risk, and increase efficiency. Vertiv has evaluated the promise of DCIM and believes it can deliver real value to your data center in four key areas.

Is Your Organization Ready?

DCIM is a business process, as much as a technology. As for any new process, it is important to have an internal plan which reflects your key business priorities, what you can expect from a DCIM implementation, and metrics for how to measure success.

Beyond the Data Breach: Examining Denial of Service Attacks

When we think about data center security today, we tend to think about Target, Sony, Home Depot and other high-profile data breaches that compromised everything from private customer information to Hollywood studio strategies and secrets. These types of security failures have been increasingly common and well chronicled in recent years.

Time for a Server Idle Performance Standard – Introducing 10 Minus

A recent study on real-world server utilization found that upwards of 30 percent of data center servers are ‘comatose’ meaning they produced no useful work within the last six months. A sad state of affairs made all the more worse by the industry’s poor average utilization rates that although somewhat improved since the 2007 EPA Report to Congress still range on the order of 8 to 15 percent. That means an awful lot of energy is being wasted in data centers around the world that could easily be saved through lower server idle power levels.

Is Fog Computing the Answer to the Internet of Things?

According to Gartner, 25 billion connected devices will comprise the Internet of Things (IoT) by 2025. But even now, with IoT in its infancy, the data volumes being produced by networked devices worldwide are congesting data pipelines in the cloud.

Data Center Innovation: How Disruptors Become The Norm

The unprecedented capacity requirements of large social media, search, colocation and cloud companies is driving massive investments in data center development. The scale of these operations has the potential to enable significant innovations in data center design and operation.

It Was My Understanding There Would Be No Math: The Data Center IQ Quiz

Is it possible to measure someone’s “data center IQ”? Can we test to see if data center operators and managers have knowledge of industry trends and best practices? After working with the Ponemon Institute on a survey of 570 data center professionals in which we asked 25 multiple-choice, knowledge-based questions and 12 operating practice questions … we still aren’t sure.

Four Emerging Archetypes to Impact Data Center Industry

The data center industry is constantly evolving, but we already knew that. What we don’t know, however, is the shape and scope for the data center of the future. Trends such as cloud computing and cybersecurity are redirecting the once predictable course of the industry toward unprecedented opportunities and challenges. In order to prepare data center professionals for this new landscape, we’ve developed four emerging archetypes that will reshape the way the data center of the future looks and operates.
