Komoditas dalam Data Center mendatang

The Future of Commodity Systems in the Data Center BY  BILL KLEYMAN  ON  FEBRUARY 9, 2015 ADD YOUR COMMENTS We’re at a very interesting point in time during the cloud infrastructure era. The modern data center continues to evolve from physical to virtual, numerous management stacks being abstracted into the logical, or virtual, layer. Is another data center evolution around the corner? Will new kinds of compute platforms allow for a more open data center model? We’ve already begun to see a shift in the way data centers provide services. A new kind of commodity architecture is making its way into the consumer, cloud provider, and even service provider data center. Customers are being given much greater options around what they want deployed and how they want it controlled. With all of this in mind, it’s important to see how commodity server platforms are already making an impact in your cloud architecture. Although the conversation has certainly picked up recently, wh

Arsitektur Leaf-Spine untuk data center

Setelah bertahun-tahun menggunakan Tree Architecture, sekarang beralih ke Leaf-Spine Architecture, khususnya untuk data center. Distributed Core/Leaf-Spine Network Architecture: An Intro By Rajesh K Distributed Core/Leaf-Spine Network Architecture is catching up with large data center/cloud networks due to its scalability, reliability, and better performance (vs. 3-tier Core-Aggregation-Edge Tree Networks). Maybe it’s time for enterprises and smaller networks to consider implementing Distributed Core/Leaf-Spine Networks, as the architecture enables companies to start small and scale up massively. Here’s a short introduction. A basic architecture diagram for Distributed Core/Leaf-Spine Networks is shown above. As you can see, the top layer has Spine Switches and the layer below has Leaf Switches. The Servers/Storage equipment (or) Top of the Rack (ToR) Switches connect to the Leaf Switches, as shown in the bottom of the diagram. As you can see, All Leaf Switches connect

Bagaimana ROI dari DCIM ?

Where is the ROI for DCIM? By  , 27-Jan-2015 Many CIOs are still hesitant to deploy a DCIM solution for their enterprise datacenters because they find it difficult to determine the ROI on it. However, those who have gone for a DCIM solution felt that it met or exceeded their ROI expectations. GreenField Software Advisor CIOs owning and operating legacy datacenters are facing increasing pressure to reduce costs, while at the same time increase availability. Some of them opt to collocate to third party datacenter service providers. However, a big majority are bucking the trend and opting to expand or do a new build. Here then is an opportunity for them to innovate by introducing Datacenter Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software and derive benefits similar to what many services providers have got by adopting DCIM. Many CIOs are still hesitant to deploy a DCIM solution for their enterprise datacenters because they find it difficult to determine the ROI on it. However, thos

Mengapa memilih lokasi Data Center Anda menjadi sangat penting ?

Why Your Data Center's Total Cost of Ownership and Location Matter Selecting a good location for your data center is a critical element of data center planning, as deciding where to build and maintain a facility directly impacts the total cost of ownership (TCO) over the lifetime of the data center. In looking to either purchase an existing facility or build a new data center, there's an exhaustive list of factors to be weighed and analyzed before you select a site. To that end, spoke to industry leaders to learn more about considerations that range from the probability of basing your data center in an area where a natural disaster could occur to the availability of utilities and the cost of energy. Key Data Center Location Considerations: Expenses, Expenses and Expenses According to data center solutions provider  Lee Technologies , a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, one basic mistake organizations make is failing to take TCO into account. In its report,  T
