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.

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.

A recent survey of 200 data center managers across the US and UK reveals that a large proportion of centers take a manual approach to planning and forecasting. Despite its limitations, MS Excel emerges as a popular tool and nearly one in ten resort to walking around a data center with a tape measure. Only just over half are able to benefit from using Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) tools. The manual approach is not limited to smaller data centers by any means; the proportion was found to remain the same even amongst the larger data centers (with above 1,500 servers). When asked why manual methods were employed, 46% said it was because they felt that the alternatives would be too expensive. A further 35% feared they lacked the resources to implement a more automated approach. Whilst both these factors may seem reasonable enough at first sight, both might actually represent false economies in the longer run.

Energy costs are the fastest-rising expense for today’s data centers. Naturally, power consumption is a top concern for managers of data center, enterprise, and cloud environments. Moreover, there are multiple proprietary power measurement and control protocols supported by various solution providers, making it challenging to have a single solution for power management across all devices in the data center. After a successful Intel IT proof of concept (PoC) using Intel® Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM) that ended in 2013, we deployed the solution across data centers in multiple countries. In our initial use of Intel DCM, we considered the solution to be focused primarily on gaining a better understanding of the power consumption and thermal status of servers. With broad deployment, we learned that Intel DCM is capable of much more.

Public clouds have fundamentally changed the way organizations build, operate, and manage applications. Security for applications in the cloud is composed of hundreds of configuration parameters and is vastly different from security in traditional data centers. According to Gartner, “Through 2020, at least 95% of cloud breaches will be due to customer misconfiguration, mismanaged credentials or insider theft, not cloud provider vulnerabilities”1. The uniqueness of cloud requires that security teams rethink classic security concepts and adopt approaches that address serverless, dynamic, and distributed cloud infrastructure. This includes rethinking security practices across asset management, compliance, change management, issue investigation, and incident response, as well as training and education. We interviewed several security experts and asked them how public cloud transformation has changed their cloud security and compliance responsibilities. In this e-book, we will share the top

This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment.

"IT needs to reach beyond the traditional data center and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. We believe this is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than they have in the past. Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be the key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have so far predicted. They have an important role to play as part of a deliberate and proactive cloud strategy, and are essential if the full benefits of moving over to a cloud model are to be fully realized."

To free up staff resources to focus on strategic business initiatives, many IT leaders are considering engaging a partner to handle ongoing data center maintenance and optimization. But, too often, data center management services fall short of expectations. Standard care services may be limited in scope, and may not support the range of legacy hardware already in the data center. Conversely, complex managed or outsourced services may involve a costly, fully-customized engagement, in which costs are unpredictable, and control is wrested away from the enterprise. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—many data center management service providers seem to lack the innovative spark that will ensure continuous improvement to data center operations.

Virtualization has transformed the data center over the past decade. IT departments use virtualization to consolidate multiple server workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful servers. They use virtualization to scale existing applications by adding more virtual machines to support them, and they deploy new applications without having to purchase additional servers to do so. They achieve greater resource utilization by balancing workloads across a large pool of servers in real time—and they respond more quickly to changes in workload or server availability by moving virtual machines between physical servers. Virtualized environments support private clouds on which application engineers can now provision their own virtual servers and networks in environments that expand and contract on demand.
