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

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.

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.-

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.

"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses. But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network.

When it comes to IT infrastructure, it’s fair to say the perimeter has left the premises. Whether it’s discovering short-lived assets (e.g., containers), assessing cloud environments or maintaining web application security, today’s attack surface presents a growing challenge to CISOs looking to understand and reduce their cyber risk. To combat this issue, a discipline called Cyber Exposure is emerging to help organizations manage and measure this risk. This ebook provides insights on how CISOs are addressing the modern attack surface.

Challenge Enterprises today face the major challenge of how to fully orchestrate the apps that define their business and automate the IT processes underpinning them when much of the infrastructure used to run them is outsourced to cloud providers. Opportunity Some cloud service providers offer their own orchestration tools, and each on-premises tool has automation capabilities. But while we own our apps, providers are interchangeable depending on what they can offer and for what price. We should be able to switch between cloud providers and between cloud, on-premises and hybrid infrastructure as and when the business requires, with minimal effort and without losing any control. Sometimes we might want to use more than one provider at the same time, leveraging the advantages of each provider simultaneously. Benefits What is needed is an orchestration layer that remains constant while cloud services come and go; one that enterprises own along with their core apps.

Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning. The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business (LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy. IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs, systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some hybrid form? Can they use existing infrastructure, or do AI applications and deep learning require new servers with new capabilities? We believe that many of these questions can be

Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience. Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many aspects of store and enterprise operations. An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ
