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.”

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.

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.

Evaluating an existing HPC platform for efficient AI-driven workloads The growth of artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, data volumes and computing power in recent years mean that AI is now a serious consideration for most organizations. When combined with high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities, its potential grows even stronger. However, converging the two approaches requires careful thought and planning. New AI initiatives must align with organizational strategy. Then AI workloads must integrate with your existing HPC infrastructure to achieve the best results in the most efficient and cost- effective way. This paper outlines the key considerations for organizations looking to bring AI into their HPC environment, and steps they can take to ensure the success of their first forays into HPC/AI convergence.

Authentication is evolving from static one-time user action, to transparent and continuous ways of validating digital identities without imposing frustration on end users. Behavioral biometrics technologies invisibly and unobtrusively authenticate users by validating the manner in which they physically interact online. Behavioral biometrics technologies learn how individual users hold mobile devices in their hands and press their fingers on the touchscreen. On computers, the system learns how users type on keyboards and move their mouse and cursor. The BehavioSec solution gathers this behavioral data and analyzes it using advanced techniques, to ensure that the user is who you expect them to be.

"Enterprises throughout the world are rapidly digitizing their operations and adopting a multicloud environment. Unfortunately, legacy WAN architecture models often do not provide the scale, flexibility or agility required to support this transition. Enter SD-WAN. No single platform will be able to deliver every piece in the jigsaw for every type of enterprise and every application-specific set of requirements. The key is to select vendor partners whose platforms are sufficiently open, modular and comprehensive in their functionality and components that they will be able to adapt to enterprises’ increasingly varied, flexible and exacting networking and compute requirements going forward. Only by doing so will they secure the ability to stay ahead in a multicloud future."

"SD-WAN largely exists today to support two key enterprise transformations: multicloud and the software-defined branch (SD-Branch). Multicloud has changed the center of gravity for enterprise applications, and with that, has changed traffic patterns too. No longer does traffic need to flow to enterprise data center sites or central internet peering points and breakouts. That’s because most traffic from users and devices in the enterprise campus and branch today goes to cloud-based applications scattered across a host of clouds. It’s neither economical nor efficient to haul traffic over WAN-dedicated links to a central enterprise site. So to optimize the cost and performance of multicloud-bound traffic, modern WAN edge routers, often called customer premises equipment (CPE), are now equipped with hybrid WAN links and routing. Hybrid WAN interfaces may include WAN provider-dedicated links such as MPLS, as well as direct internet links over xDSL, broadband and 4G/LTE wireless."
