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.

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 data center has assumed a new, more prominent role as a strategic asset within the organization. Increasing capacity demands and the pressure to support the “always-on” digital business are forcing data centers to adapt, evolve, and respond at an increasingly accelerated rate. Cloud, mobility, IoT, big data – these and other interrelated trends are putting enormous pressure on the modern data center. To keep pace, today’s physical infrastructure has become vastly more complex, interconnected, and performance-driven than a decade ago.-

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

Even through challenging economic times, the need for physical data center capacity continues to grow. For some businesses, the driver is expansion into new markets or geographies. For others, it's the need to deal with growing amounts of data generated by applications with high-capacity demands, evolving end-user abilities, or regulatory bodies that demand ever-increasing quantities of meticulous documentation. The "build-or-buy" decision between construction and colocation should be weighed carefully, as the choice will affect your company and your bottom line quite literally for decades. This executive report will review six key factors that affect that choice, some of which extend beyond a basic TCO analysis.

Businesses face greater uncertainty than ever. Market conditions, customer desires, competitive landscapes, and regulatory constraints change by the minute. So business success is increasingly contingent on predictive intelligence and hyperagile responsiveness to relentlessly evolving demands. This uncertainty has significant implications for the data center — especially as business becomes pervasively digital. IT has to support business agility by being more agile itself. It has to be able to add services, scale capacity up and down as needed, and nimbly remap itself to changes in organizational structure.

The average data center refreshes their storage system every three to five years. But organizations don’t start this process because the calendar tells them to. Something happens in the environment that forces that upgrade, typically the storage system failing to meet the performance and/or capacity demands of the organization. Occasionally, there is a specific software feature or hardware advancement that requires a new storage system. The worst reason is when a vendor implements “technology obsolesce”, an approach that makes the out-­-year maintenance of the existing system so expensive the customer is forced into buying a new system. Download this white paper to learn why vendors need to move to a model that unbundles the factors driving storage upgrades.

No matter how advanced data centers may become, they remain in a perpetual state of change in order to meet the demands of virtualized environments. But with the advent of software-­defined storage (SDS) architecture, capabilities associated with hyperconverged technologies (including compute, storage, and networking), help data centers meet virtualization requirements with less administrator intervention at webscale. This flexible, scale­-out, and highly automated architecture provides enterprise­-class data services for each workload, supplying the appropriate levels of capacity, performance, and protection while containing costs and bringing agility and efficiency to the data center by simplifying management, reducing reconfigurations, and improving TCO.

For many companies the appeal of the public cloud is very real. For tech startups, the cloud may be their only option, since many don’t have the capital or expertise to build and operate the IT systems their businesses need. Existing companies with established data centers are also looking at public clouds, to increase IT agility while limiting risk. The idea of building-out their production capacity while possibly reducing the costs attached to that infrastructure can be attractive. For most companies the cloud isn’t an “either-or” decision, but an operating model to be evaluated along with on-site infrastructure. And like most infrastructure decisions the question of cost is certainly a consideration. In this report we’ll explore that question, comparing the cost of an on-site hyperconverged solution with a comparable set up in the cloud. The on-site infrastructure is a Dell EMC VxRailTM hyperconverged appliance cluster and the cloud solution is Amazon Web Services (AWS).
