How Cloud has Changed Data Center Technology

Let’s face it, if you’re a technologist and you’re reading this article, you’re tied to the cloud in one way or another. Whether you have Gmail synced to your phone or you upload photos to Dropbox, you’re utilizing cloud computing. Over the past few years, cloud services have become more enhanced and prevalent. There is more emphasis on data delivery, our ability to continuously stay connected and how our information is distributed.
Data centers and other technologies have had to adapt to this growing trends by deploying, in reality, some pretty cool technologies. This is happening at the IT consumerization level and within the data center:
  • The latest Cisco Global Cloud Index shows just how fast everything in the cloud is growing:Cloud Computing – We know about the cloud. We know that there are now four general models to work with (private, public, hybrid and community). The really amazing part that’s been happening is the open-source and cloud connectivity movement that’s been happening. People behind open source projects like OpenStack and CloudStack are creating powerful cloud API models to interweave various services and even platforms. The great part is that these technologies are still evolving and becoming better. Cloud APIs and connection models push the industry towards a more unified cloud architecture. Now, new concepts around software-defined technologies are helping push the cloud boundaries even further. Software-defined storage is a lot more than just a buzz term. It’s a way for organizations to manage heterogeneous storage environments under one logical layer. When convergence around network, storage and compute intersect with software-defined technologies – you create the building blocks for a commodity cloud data center.
  • Network Communications – This is where it gets really interesting. We’ve heard about software-defined networks, but the reality is that cloud-based networking has become pretty advanced. Cloud providers are deploying highly intelligent switching components which are capable of handling thousands of virtual connections. Furthermore, they’re able to present multiple networks to one another and still keep various services segmented. We are seeing more converged and unified systems where advanced networking capabilities are built directly into the rack, server, and storage infrastructure. Layer 4-7 switches are not only controlling traffic – they’re intelligently manipulating it based on various variables. These controls can revolve around geographic policies, connection points, and even device interrogation rules. This is also where we begin to include software-defined networking as powerful cloud data center concept. SDN can create very intelligent, globally connected, environments. Furthermore, SDN can help with load-balancing cloud and data center infrastructures. SDN already helps with global traffic management by logically sending traffic to the appropriate data center. Moving forward, SDN will strive to create even more fluid data center traffic flow automation. These types of efforts will help with downtime, data resiliency, and disaster recovery planning.
  • Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity – Emergency events can happen at any time – and for any reason. This is where the cloud has helped many organizations create solid disaster recovery or business continuity environments. Whether it’s an active site or a “pay-as-you-go” public cloud model; DR strategies are becoming more feasible for more organizations. A lot of this has to do with better global server load balancing (GSLB) and global traffic management (GTM) techniques. Our ability to route traffic based on numerous variables has empowered organizations to distribute there environments and their data. Not only does GSLB and GTM help by creating one logical network flow for data traffic and user access – administrators are able to keep users closer to their data centers. By identifying the user geo-location, cloud technologies are able to route users to the data center nearest to them. In the event of a failure, GTM and GSLB are able to immediately and transparently, route the users to the next available set data center resources.
  • Annual global cloud IP traffic will reach 5.3 zettabytes by the end of 2017. By 2017, global cloud IP traffic will reach 443 exabytes per month (up from 98 exabytes per month in 2012).
  • Global cloud IP traffic will increase nearly 4.5-fold over the next 5 years. Overall, cloud IP traffic will grow at a CAGR of 35 percent from 2012 to 2017.
  • Global cloud IP traffic will account for more than two-thirds of total data center traffic by 2017.
More is being stored within the cloud and more devices are connecting to the Internet. There are more services delivered via the web and entire organizations can go live without purchasing a single piece of equipment. As the reliance on cloud computing and the Internet continues to expand, the need for continuous innovation will help create even better platforms.

Timer AC bergantian

Bagaimana sich prinsip kerja AC yang bergantian? Seperti yang terangkai pada ACPDB, yang kita butuhkan adalah 1 buah timer dan 2 buah kontaktor. Pada dasarnya rangkaiannya adalah seperti gambar diatas. Seperti kita ketahui, timer dan kontaktor akan bekerja apabila mendapatkan catuan 220 V. Pada timer catuan bisa dikoneksikan di lubang “L” dan “N”, sedang pada kontaktor dilubang “A1” dan “A2”. Itulah kenapa pada saat mati listrik komponen2 tersebut tidak bekerja. Timer berfungsi sebagai switch dari 2-1 atau 2-3 dan lubang “2” sebagai sumber yang dialiri arus listrik. Sesuai namanya alat ini akan bergantian dari 2-1 atau 2-3 berdasarkan waktu yang sudah kita atur pada sirip biru. Satu sirip merepresentasikan 30 menit. Sedang pada kontaktor untuk tipe Telemecanique, sumbu-sumbu saklarnya adalah 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, NO-NO, NC-NC.  Jika “A1” dan “A2” tidak dicatu maka 1-2 (open), 3-4 (open), 5-6 (open), NO-NO (open), NC-NC (close/terhubung). Dan bila “A1” dan “A2” dicatu  maka 1-2 (close), 3-4 (clo…

Contoh Panduan Standarisasi Area Data Center

Berikut adalah contoh Panduan Standarisasi Area Data Center

PANDUAN - IK Standarisasi Area Data Center Article Number: 49 | Rating: Unrated | Last Updated: Mon, Nov 25, 2013 at 2:13 PM BAB I KEBIJAKAN
1.1.Area Data Center
Areadata center termasuk aset vital perusahaan dan diperlakukan sesuai dengan persyaratan yang telah ditetapkan dalam Sistem Manajemen Pengamanan Perusahaan.

Seksi Jaringan bertanggungjawab terhadap pengamanan fisik dan logik. sedangkan fungsi Sekuriti terhadap pengamanan fisik.


1.2.Pertimbangan Dalam Hal Penentuan Lokasi Area Data Center
Beberapa pertimbangan yang harus ada dalam menentukan lokasi ruang data center, yaitu :

1.Memungkinkan untuk pengembangan yang memadai, misalnya mempertimbangkan pengembangan untuk jangka waktu 5 (lima) tahun ke depan.
2.Mempertimbangkan ruang yang tidak "terlalu” banyak dilalui untuk operasional lain, namun tetap dapat dijangkau dengan mudah.
3.Memperhatikan aspek keamanan dan keselamatan pekerja.
4.Memenuhi persyaratan sebagaimana yang …

Mendesigns dan Menghitung UPS untuk Data Center

Mendesigns dan Menghitung UPS untuk Data Center UPS dan data center mungkin bisa di sebut sayur tanpa garam, hambar jika tidak saling melengkapi. 
Tapi untuk menentukan kebutuhan akan UPS data centerperlu perhitungan yang matang agar UPS dan server tetap awet dan selalu ON 24 jam. banyak sekali jenis UPS dan daya yang di tawarkan. Kita harus menghitung kebutuhan beban keseluruhan server agar ketika listrik down UPS dapat menghandle beberapa detik untuk listrik pindah ke genset begitu pula sebaliknya, Oke untuk menentukan itu semua tentukan dulu jenis UPS yang akan anda gunakan.
Oke kita sedikit belajar dulu tentang UPS :)
PRINSIP KERJA UPS Setiap PC membutuhkan daya listrik. Apabila aliran listrik (main power) terputus, PC akan mati (tidak berfungsi). Fungsi dasar UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) adalah menyediakan suplai listrik SEMENTARA ke beban (PC) tanpa terputus pada saat main power tidak bekerja agar seluruh proses dapat dihentikan dengan benar, seluruh data dapat disimpan den…
