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.

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.”

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.

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.

Around the globe, voices clamoring for climate-aware investing and carbon controlsare increasing. Demand for ethical treatment of employees, customers and other stakeholders is also growing, as is indignation about poorly-managed companies. Companies are subject to an increasing set of non-financial reporting requirements relating to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. A swathe of new requirements will soon impact the investment and lending appetites of EU financial institutions. Coupled with increasing investor demands, these new rules could have a profound impact on companies’ ability to raise capital, within the EU and beyond.

It’s not uncommon to find slick-looking user interfaces, well-run product demos, and exciting sales narratives when evaluating a data management platform (DMP), but don’t let those features distract from the elements needed for day-to-day and long-term strategic success of a DMP. Whether you’re looking to invest in a DMP for the first time or want to switch to a new provider, there are a few crucial factors to consider before signing on the dotted line. Key functionality, architecture, and partnership dynamics are all important factors, but they rarely surface until your team is hands-on and using the platform. Once you dig in, it can quickly become apparent that a shiny interface and smart storytelling are a distraction from what really matters—at this point, it’s often too late. Avoid buyer’s remorse by considering these seven facets of all DMP providers before making your decision.

It’s no secret that data-driven marketing (DDM) is top of mind for brand and agency executives. But what is surprising—shocking, in fact—is how vital first- and third-party information is for creative and execution strategies today. Case in point: 70% of senior marketing executives from brands, agencies and related industry segments say data-driven marketing is a core element of a majority of their campaigns, according to a new Oracle-Forbes Insights survey. This full immersion in data and analytics—more than what many industry insiders may have realized—shows how quickly brands and agencies have recognized the potential benefits and rushed to replace outdated “gutfeel” decision making with quantifiable research. This was another recurring theme in the Oracle-Forbes Insights study, which found that marketing executives rely on advanced analytics to increase sales, attract new customers and expand brand awareness. In addition, 71% of respondents feel they effectively use it to identify

In the past, B2B transactions occurred in face-to-face meetings as a sales professional worked a product demo, business luncheon, or boardroom presentation to influence a customer – and close the deal. Today, however, B2B stakeholders perform much of their product and service research online. In fact, 93 percent of B2B buying starts with online searching, according to a Pinpoint Market Research study. This research occurs long before a customer engages with sales. As your prospects research and evaluate your offerings, they leave behind valuable clues to their intent. Understanding these clues – cracking the code – can help you tailor your messages to them, thereby providing them a more tailored, relevant experience. As a result, business-savvy marketing and sales departments have embraced marketing automation platforms, so their respective teams can work together on one common platform, reach B2B customers online, and drive revenue.
