The traditional data center model is like the old cable TV and music models, which forced you to buy and pay for all 189 channels and all ten songs, even if you only wanted a few. The evolved data center model, in contrast, is like the new TV and music models – you only buy the show or the song you want. Where the traditional colocation model locks you into long-term contracts for power you may not use, the evolved payfor-use model eliminates the need to forecast IT demand and provides control over capacity. As a result, you reduce waste and align your data center to the needs of your business. Aligned Data Centers is the first to bring this evolved data center model to the marketplace. The pages that follow explain how.

It is time to finally get over the misconceptions generated by the loud and misleading rhetoric regarding the superior efficiencies of close-coupled and liquid cooled server cabinet solutions, as well as the supposed limits on power densities that can be effectively cooled by air. Passive air cooling can successfully dissipate as much heat as can be generated by commercial servers that can actually fit in a 42-45 U cabinet, and in fact more than most close-coupled and liquid-cooled solutions. In addition, air-cooled solutions that rely on complete isolation between supply air and return air are more efficient than most close-coupled systems and provide access to lower data center cooling costs.

Power consumption in the data center continues to be a rising trend. The need to provide redundant power systems with high reliability and availability of compute resources is a major driving force for the increase in power utilization. Some data centers use just as much power for non-compute or “overhead energy” like cooling, lighting and power conversions, as they do to power servers. The ultimate goal is to reduce this “overhead energy” loss, so that more power is dedicated to revenue-generating equipment, without jeopardizing reliability and availability of resources.

These are all marketing terms being used to describe data center colocation offerings. (IO is no exception.) But what do these terms really mean to an organization? What does “next-generation” or “2.0” or “future proof” or “hybrid” do for those people who are responsible for data center operations? Why should a CIO or data center manager care if his data center is “next-generation”? Why look for a provider with an “enterprise hybrid solution”? In this Solution Guide, we cut through the marketing hype and answer those questions.

The primary focus of any data center is the critical applications that form an enterprise’s business and operational core—its commercial and technical heart. Last-generation facilities, which were often designed using traditional methods created during the mainframe era, simply aren’t capable of handling the requirements of today’s businesscritical applications. Additionally, deploying a data center with inadequate or inappropriate resources, or placing the facility in the wrong location, can negatively impact application performance and, in turn, enterprise success.

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) has become more vital than ever to data center operations as efficiency and technology advancement cycles move at an increasingly rapid pace. The insight provided by these essential systems has historically only been accessible to the data center operations team, not the end user or for that matter – the colocated customer. Now that the technology sector as a whole is becoming increasingly user friendly, transparent and hands on, it makes sense for colocation data centers to offer a higher level of insight and transparency into their clients’ individual environments.

When companies evaluate potential data centers and colocation service providers, they normally compare them using some kind of criteria or checklist. However, many such efforts fail to sufficiently evaluate the breadth and depth of detail necessary to make a well informed decision. This white paper examines several key criteria as they relate to service delivery from a data center or colocation provider. Specifically, this paper examines the importance of factors such as risk mitigation, operational processes and service assurance, combined with maintenance and lifecycle strategies that directly contribute to “high-availability service delivery.”

THE TOP 10 CRITERIA TO DISCUSS WHEN TOURING A DATA CENTER Choosing a data center or colocation provider to house your company’s critical IT infrastructure is a huge decision. Unfortunately, colocation providers don’t make it easy to differentiate between them. Many data center tours will have the same components: a sales rep will show you their data center’s battery rooms, cooling equipment, security measures, and generators, all the while assuring you that they are highly secure, reliable, well maintained, invulnerable to natural disasters, and capable of high density computing. After a few tours, it may seem as though there isn’t much difference between one data center and the next. This couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s important to know what to look for so you can make an informed decision. Migrating your IT environment is risky, often expensive, and certainly time consuming — you want to make the right choice the 1st time

The demand for more efficient and cost effective computing has driven organizations large and small to reevaluate their strategies. This examination can incorporate many aspects, encompassing system architecture and software platforms, as well as the IT hardware, and of course the data center facility. Moreover, there are many strategic options for the enterprise CIO and CTO to consider, such as the possibility of direct or indirect ownership and operation of their own data center facility, as well as colocation, cloud, or hybrid combinations thereof. Nonetheless, the IT hardware must ultimately reside in a physical data center that will provide conditioned power and safe environmental conditions for the IT equipment.

A comprehensive approach to security requires much more than simply installing locks and hiring security officers. While these remain important aspects of an effective security plan, they are part of a broader, more integrative approach to security in today’s dynamic environment. For data center operators, ensuring the security and continuity of their clients’ business operations is a key and compelling imperative. This paper has examined the elements and organization of a holistic approach to security. Digital Realty views security as an integrated process, consisting of the subprocesses of physical security, information security, incident management, business continuity and compliance, enabled by the systems, processes and people providing quality of delivery and reliability of performance. Absent any of these elements, security becomes a series of loosely related tasks lacking in cohesive effectiveness.

Today’s CIO faces a host of challenges and new trends. Budgets are tight and in many cases decreasing. At the same time, IT is becoming more strategic as the amount of data created is exploding and the value of accessing that data in real time is continuously increasing. Much of this data must be mined and acted upon instantaneously while it is still of value, requiring the application of bigger and more powerful data centers.

Multimode fiber (MMF) cabling is the workhorse media of local area network (LAN) backbones and data centers because it offers the lowest cost means of transporting high data rates for distances aligned with the needs of these environments. MMF has evolved from being optimized for multi-megabit per second transmission using light emitting diode (LED) light sources to being specialized to support multi-gigabit transmission using 850 nm vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) sources. Channel capacity has been multiplied through the use of parallel transmission over multiple strands of fiber. These advances have increased multimode supported data rates by an astounding factor of 40,000 — from 10 Mb/s in the late 1980s to 100 Gb/s in 2010, with 400 Gb/s in development in 2015. Today, these extraordinary rates are created from collections of 25 Gb/s lanes carried on either four or sixteen strands of fiber in each direction
