Data center operations require a careful balance of resources, personnel, and planning – there is no single cause or factor that can impact such operations but rather multiple factors at any given time which could affect the whole of the organization, customers, and profits. There have been many examples, both good and bad, where customer demands out strips capacity during preplanned consumer events (i.e., online sales, concerts, streamed events, etc.).
Data center densities are on the rise, meaning the days of the 6kW rack are numbered. Solutions such as hot/cold aisle containment and CRACs will help keep your costs - and temperatures - down.
The 2016 Summer Olympic Games, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, marks the first time that the Summer Olympic Games have been hosted in South America. The 2016 Summer Olympic Games will the first Summer Olympic Games for the world that are hosted under a 4G data network-
Data centers managers make an initial investment in the building, design and IT equipment. Once deployed, data centers start to age. IT evolves exponentially every three years and aging data centers become less efficient compared to newly built data centers, oftentimes not reaching their full potential for capacity density. Data center managers have a vested interest in configuring the highest data center capacity that they can maintain for their IT so that they get the best return on investment (ROI) for the cost of running the data center. There are a number of modernizations that can be implemented in an aging data center to achieve the highest density capacity for the future.
