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.”

Most colocation providers follow any one of the two delivery models for providing infrastructure to wholesale customers: Shared or Dedicated. This paper describes the shared, dedicated and distributed power delivery models for wholesale data center colocation. The authors also compare and identify benefits and pitfalls of the three power delivery models and offer practical advice to businesses looking for wholesale colocation.

Today’s modern IT infrastructure is demanding more out of its resources, expansion strategies, delivery methods and disaster recovery methodologies. To help meet these new growing demands, many organizations are turning to colocation providers to help service their data center needs. But what makes up a good data center decision? Is it just the location? What about the bandwidth coming into the site? What about green technologies and the adoption of new unified technologies? The reality here is that there are several key consideration points which need to be made when choosing the right data center colocation solution. Now with cloud computing and a truly distributed, data on-demand, environment, making the right choice has become more important than ever.

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.

Think back just 5 years ago. In 2014… • The seminal DevOps book—Gene Kim’s The Phoenix Project—was one year old • Gartner predicted that 25% of Global 2000 enterprises would adopt DevOps to some extent by 20161 • "Continuous Testing” just started appearing in industry publications and conferences2 • Many of today’s popular test frameworks were brand new—or not yet released • The term “microservices” was just entering our lexicon • QC/UFT and ALM were still sold by HP (not even HPE yet) • Only 30% of enterprise software testing was performed fully “in house”3 • There was no GDPR restricting the use of production data for software testing • Packaged apps were typically updated on an annual or semi-annual basis and modern platforms like SAP S/4HANA and Salesforce Lightning hadn’t even been announced Times have changed—a lot. If the way that you’re testing hasn’t already transformed dramatically, it will soon. And the pace and scope of disruption will continue to escalate throughout the fo

Let’s face it. Businesses don’t want—or need—perfect software. They want to deliver new, businessdifferentiating software as soon as possible. To enable this, we (Development and Testing teams) need fast feedback on whether the latest innovations will work as expected or crash and burn in production. We also need to know if these changes somehow broke the core functionality that the customer base—and thus the business—depends upon. This is where Continuous Testing comes in. Continuous Testing is the process of executing automated tests as part of the software delivery pipeline in order to obtain feedback on the business risks associated with a software release candidate as rapidly as possible.

The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies, system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era. Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under the microscope as well? Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail rate important in the context of DevOps, where the goal is immediate insight into whether a given release candidate has an acceptable level of risk? What other metrics can help us ensure that the steady stream of updates don’t undermine the very user experience that we’re working so hard to enhance? To provide the DevOps community an objective perspective on what quality

The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.

Application performance and delivery have changed. Should your network change too? Cloud is changing the fundamentals of how IT teams deliver applications and manage their performance. Applications are increasingly deployed farther from users, crossing networks outside of IT’s direct control. Instead of enterprise data centers, many apps now reside in public and hybrid cloud environments. There are even new breeds of applications, built upon microservices and containers. Today, IT needs modern solutions that: ? Extend on-premises networks, apps, and infrastructure resources to the cloud. ? Maintain high levels of performance, user experience, and security across all applications, including microservices based apps. ? Sustain operational consistency across on-premises and cloud environments. ? Move away from the expense, complexity, and poor performance of traditional networking methods. These solutions are available for apps running on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) through the allia

When any organization starts planning for cloud-native applications, it is important to consider the entire time span: from selecting a development platform until an application is truly production-grade and ready for delivery in the cloud. It can be a long journey, with many decisions along the way that can help or hinder progress. For example, at the beginning of a move to cloud-native development, it is easy for inefficiencies to occur if developers begin selecting tools and frameworks before they know where the application will be deployed. While enterprise developers want choice of runtimes, frameworks, and languages, organizations need standards that address the entire application life cycle in order to reduce operational costs, decrease risks, and meet compliance requirements. Organizations also want to avoid lock-in, whether it is to a single provider of cloud infrastructure or the latest architectural style. In addition, given the steep learning curve in cloud development, con
