The primary focus of any data center is the critical applications that form an enterprise’s business and operational core—its commercial and technical heart. Last-generation facilities, which were often designed using traditional methods created during the mainframe era, simply aren’t capable of handling the requirements of today’s businesscritical applications. Additionally, deploying a data center with inadequate or inappropriate resources, or placing the facility in the wrong location, can negatively impact application performance and, in turn, enterprise success.

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.

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.”

The demand for more efficient and cost effective computing has driven organizations large and small to reevaluate their strategies. This examination can incorporate many aspects, encompassing system architecture and software platforms, as well as the IT hardware, and of course the data center facility. Moreover, there are many strategic options for the enterprise CIO and CTO to consider, such as the possibility of direct or indirect ownership and operation of their own data center facility, as well as colocation, cloud, or hybrid combinations thereof. Nonetheless, the IT hardware must ultimately reside in a physical data center that will provide conditioned power and safe environmental conditions for the IT equipment.

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.

Data centers help state and federal agencies reduce costs and improve operations. Every day, government agencies struggle to meet critical cost controls with lower operational expenses while fulfilling the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative’s (FDCCI) goal. All too often they are finding themselves constrained by their legacy in-house data centers and connectivity solutions that fail to deliver exceptional data center reliability and uptime.

We harness Shell gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology to create high-purity process oils that open exciting opportunities for your products and operations. Conventional process oils are derived from crude oil, whereas Shell Risella X and Shell Ondina X are made from pure synthesis gas. That frees them from the impurities and large molecular variations found in mineral oils. Using GTL process oils could enhance your processes and final products to give you a competitive advantage. [478] Have you ever experienced product quality issues caused by variations in process oil batches? Do you need a low-viscosity process oil, but have concerns about the effect of volatiles on working conditions? Could you offer enhanced products if you had process oils with distinct characteristics, for example, an extremely narrow hydrocarbon distribution range? Our GTL process oils contain a high proportion of paraffinic hydrocarbons and are very pure, which provides key qualities for many applications. For in

Despite massive spend to protect enterprise digital assets, security breaches are still on the rise. The disconnect between the level of investment and the volume and impact of attacks is largely attributed to outdated approaches that favor perimeter protection and point solutions despite a digital supply chain that is more distributed than ever. For these reasons and more, enterprises need to start thinking differently about cybersecurity. Security doesn’t need new products. It needs a new model. One that applies the principles of intrinsic security across the fabric of the organization, from the sales floor to the C-suite, from the infrastructure to the endpoint device. In this Essential Guidance executive brief, learn how intrinsic security differs from traditional security methods, and the steps CIOs need to take to operationalize this model for greater business agility without greater risk.

"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams. As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats. The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."

A number of recent surveys indicate that cloud costs are becoming a major concern for businesses, many of whom have found cloud computing to be more expensive than they thought. The surveys align with Gartner’s 2017 prediction that “through 2020, 80% of businesses will overshoot their cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) budgets due to a lack of cost optimization approaches”. This could be due to a lack of understanding about cloud pricing, or a lack of knowledge about the full range of measures that can be taken to reduce cloud costs. The one area in which businesses are struggling to control costs more than any other is the hybrid cloud. Analysts attribute hybrid cloud overspend to the complexity of operating a private or public cloud in conjunction with an on-premises infrastructure. Businesses using VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS don’t experience as much operational complexity in their hybrid environments, but they can still be guilty of overspending. This eBook will offer 6 Ways to
