Greater performance, agility and security are the new imperatives of the modern data center, and according to the Edison Group, Dell EMC PowerEdge servers outperform HPE servers. PowerEdge servers?with Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors? have customer-centrice innovation that is better able to meet the advance demands of IT Transformation, today and tomorrow. Download this infographic to learn the 5 reasons why.
IT organizations are no longer just a business support function and cost center—they are expected to drive business as part of the core corporate strategy. Adding to this, IT landscapes continue to increase in complexity, complicating management and innovation.
Digital transformation helps IT adapt to these changes. Building a hybrid or multi-cloud IT environment can help you transform successfully. An effective cloud environment can provide:
• Improved infrastructure management and flexibility
• More time for IT to focus on strategic projects rather than manage data centers.
• Better IT cost management
In fact, 49% of companies cite “modernized IT infrastructure and technologies with increased agility, flexibility, manageability, and security” as a digital initiative on their long-term roadmap.

While enterprises continue to own and operate in-house datacenters, their use of colocation and other outsourcing services is growing fast. Demand for colocation and wholesale datacenters, with their readily available space and power, their professional operations teams and, increasingly, their rich connectivity and value-added offerings, has never been stronger. 451 Research forecasts that the operational square footage of the global colocation and wholesale sector will grow at a healthy 7% CAGR from 2017 to 2020.
Colocation facilities are rapidly designing and building new facilities in order to capitalize on market opportunity. Getting the facility up and running is the first challenge. The second? Recruiting, training, and retaining qualified data center staff. In this webinar, co-hosted by Tony DeSpirito, VP & General Manager Data Center Operations at Schneider Electric, & Brian Gisi, Infrastructure Management & Services Manager at IBM, to access field-tested methods & strategies that can help you:
1. Overcome the worldwide shortage of experienced data center professionals
2. Understand how out-tasking data center operations can benefit you & your clients
3. Identify key characteristics of a strong data center operations partner
Data continues to grow at an astounding pace? As a result, data center space is becoming more scarce, as more arrays are acquired to store all of this data. Along with this data taking up space, it is also utilizing a great deal of power and cooling. In fact, the average data center in the U.S. uses approximately 34,000 kW of electricity each year, costing $180,000 in annual energy costs. As Infinidat set out to revolutionize the storage industry, one of our goals was to help consumers of storage build a more sustainable infrastructure that would be not only better for the environment, but also help them to save money as well. All of our patents come together to form InfiniBox, a storage solution that does just this.

More and more enterprises like yours are moving critical business applications to AWS as part of a digital transformation strategy, but many don't know where to start. Getting out of your data center and onto AWS can provide significant business benefits, including improved agility, enhanced scalability and cost savings. But are you realizing the full benefit of a move to the AWS cloud?
As companies scale, they add solutions leaving employees having to deal with multiple gateways or access points to get to their applications, apps, and data. It creates a poor user experience, slows productivity, and opens organizations to security risks. With Citrix Workspace, IT is able to simplify connections with remote access while maintaining security and control.
Download our e-book and find out how we can:
Provide users with one access point and single sign-on (SSO)
Ensure secure access to apps in the data center, cloud, or delivered as SaaS applications across any device
Help IT reduce complexity and meet compliance and security policies
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF).
Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way
to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and
potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.
Some organizations are reluctant to migrate to the cloud because they believe they will be forced to learn new skills, start using new tools, and adopt new processes. However, by deploying VMware Cloud on AWS, your organization can continue to leverage existing, familiar VMware investments. This on-demand service delivers a powerful hybrid cloud solution, combining an industry leader in virtualization, VMware, with the largest cloud provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS).
One of the first solution providers to achieve the VMware Solution Competency and a participant in the AWS Partner Initiative for VMware Cloud on AWS, RoundTower is uniquely qualified to help your organization adopt and optimize VMware Cloud on AWS. Watch this webinar to see how they can extend your on-premises data center to AWS, enabling you to gain increased flexibility, a rapidly scalable environment, and faster time to innovation.

In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

Edison has followed the development and use of Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) over the past five years. Cisco ACI delivers an intent-based networking framework to enable agility in the datacenter. It captures higher-level business and user intent in the form of a policy and translates this intent into the network constructs necessary to dynamically provision the network, security, and infrastructure services.
The Secure Data Center is a place in the network (PIN) where a company centralizes data and performs services for business. Data centers contain hundreds to thousands of physical and virtual servers that are segmented by applications, zones, and other methods. This guide addresses data center business flows and the security used to defend them. The Secure Data Center is one of the six places in the network within SAFE. SAFE is a holistic approach in which Secure PINs model the physical infrastructure and Secure Domains represent the operational aspects of a network.
Cisco ACI, the industry-leading software-defined networking solution, facilitates application agility and data center automation. With ACI Anywhere, enable scalable multicloud networks with a consistent policy model, and gain the flexibility to move applications seamlessly to any location or any cloud while maintaining security and high availability.
