Even when there is only a single-stage deployment, there may be significant advantages to segmenting a data center into density areas. For example, the difference in density between blade servers and storage is significant and a data center that separates servers and storage could gain a significant advantage in designing distinct zones with different density specifications, even though the total power load of the data center is not changed.

Increasing Data Center Efficiency by Using Improved High-density Power Distribution


North American server installations are uniquely inefficient because of multiple circuits, use of floor space and weight, and more. A new approach to power distribution for high-density server installations saves floor space, simplifies power cabling, saves capital cost, reduces weight, and increases electrical efficiency. Learn more about how this distribution architecture can provide you with numerous benefits.

In the past it was not practical to consider alternative higher voltage power distribution systems because a significant fraction of IT equipment operated from 120V. However in the modern high density data center virtually all rack-based equipment operates on 208V (or 230V outside North America). Even devices that can run on 120V are also capable of operating on higher voltage. Virtually all IT equipment Read More

System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007


To retain the integrity and availability of your key operational data, your server infrastructure must provide effective data backup and recovery. When used with a storage area network (SAN), a data protection manager (DPM) can help increase your storage space, reduce time needed to create backup, and allow for quick recovery of data when disaster strikes. Learn more about this scalable and cost-effective solution.

An Improved Architecture for High-efficiency, High-density Data Centers


Globally, data center power and cooling infrastructure wastes more than 60 million megawatt-hours per year that do not contribute usefully to powering IT equipment. This is an enormous financial burden on industry, and is a significant public policy environmental issue. Find out about the principles of a new data center architecture that can be implemented today to dramatically improve the electrical efficiency of your data center.

The benefits are said to accrue from the elimination of PDU transformers, replacing a UPS with an AC-DC converter, and the creation of new IT equipment that accepts high-voltage DC input in addition to or instead of AC. These efficiency benefits are quantified in Table 1. Table 1 ' Data center efficiency improvement from DC distribution, compared to conventional design and to this paper's high-efficiency architecture DC Read More

Data Center Projects: Advantages of Using a Reference Design


It is no longer practical or cost-effective to completely engineer all aspects of a unique data center. Re-use of proven, documented subsystems or complete designs is a best practice for both new data centers and for upgrades to existing data centers. Adopting a well-conceived reference design can have a positive impact on both the project itself, as well as on the operation of the data center over its lifetime. Reference designs simplify and shorten the planning and implementation process and reduce downtime risks once up and running. In this paper reference designs are defined and their benefits are explained.

Data Management and Analysis


From a business perspective, the role of data management and analysis is crucial. It is not only a resource for gathering new stores of static information; it is also a resource for acquiring knowledge and supporting the decisions companies need to make in all aspects of economic ventures, including mergers and acquisitions (M&As).

For organizational growth, all requirements and opportunities must be accurately communicated throughout the value chain. All users—from end users to data professionals—must have the most accurate data tools and systems in place to efficiently carry out their daily tasks. Data generation development, data quality, document and content management, and data security management are all examples of data-related functions that provide information in a logical and precise manner.

TCO Analysis of a Traditional Data Center vs. a Scalable, Containerized Data Center


Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a total cost of ownership (TCO) savings of 30% compared with traditional, built-out data center power and cooling infrastructure. Avoiding overbuilt capacity and scaling the design over time contributes to a significant percentage of the overall savings. This white paper provides a quantitative TCO analysis of the two architectures, and illustrates the key drivers of both the capex and opex savings of the improved architecture.

Discover solutions that help organizations protect remote data and offer extensive data protection and recovery solutions for remote offices.

reduce data center  Data de-duplication can effectively reduce the amount of data that needs to be backed up or sent over the WAN. It works by eliminating any blocks of data that are redundant to a block already stored, and replacing them with a pointer to the stored block. While this approach can be very effective when protecting a large number of desktop-type systems, the amount of data redundancy in business application servers is usually much less. Also, you should consult your attorney or compliance officer before Read More

Another way to reduce the amount of data being read is to pre-define aggregations (summaries of detail data, such as monthly total sales) within the star, since most queries ask questions like how many were sold last month?

Increasing Sales and Reducing Costs across the Supply Chain-Focusing on Data Quality and Master Data Management


Nearly half of all US companies have serious data quality issues. The problem is that most are not thinking about their business data as being valuable. But in reality data has become—in some cases—just as valuable as inventory. The solution to most organizational data challenges today is to combine a strong data quality program with a master data management (MDM) program, helping businesses leverage data as an asset.

Considerations for Owning versus Outsourcing Data Center Physical Infrastructure


When faced with the decision of upgrading an existing data center, building new, or leasing space in a retail colocation data center, there are both quantitative and qualitative differences to consider. The 10-year TCO may favor upgrading or building over outsourcing; however, this paper demonstrates that the economics may be overwhelmed by a business’ sensitivity to cash flow, cash crossover point, deployment timeframe, data center life expectancy, regulatory requirements, and other strategic factors. This paper discusses how to assess these key factors to help make a sound decision.
