These are all marketing terms being used to describe data center colocation offerings. (IO is no exception.) But what do these terms really mean to an organization? What does “next-generation” or “2.0” or “future proof” or “hybrid” do for those people who are responsible for data center operations? Why should a CIO or data center manager care if his data center is “next-generation”? Why look for a provider with an “enterprise hybrid solution”? In this Solution Guide, we cut through the marketing hype and answer those questions.

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 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.

Energy costs are the fastest-rising expense for today’s data centers. Naturally, power consumption is a top concern for managers of data center, enterprise, and cloud environments. Moreover, there are multiple proprietary power measurement and control protocols supported by various solution providers, making it challenging to have a single solution for power management across all devices in the data center. After a successful Intel IT proof of concept (PoC) using Intel® Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM) that ended in 2013, we deployed the solution across data centers in multiple countries. In our initial use of Intel DCM, we considered the solution to be focused primarily on gaining a better understanding of the power consumption and thermal status of servers. With broad deployment, we learned that Intel DCM is capable of much more.

This White paper looks at how system complexity is increasing, though enterprises deploy more applications to more endpoints than ever before. Hackers have evolved from isolated sociopaths into highly organised groups relying on leading-edge technology. Finally, IT budgets are growing, albeit slowly: International Data Corp. (IDC) expects budgets to increase 3.4% in 2017. So many CIOs are struggling to find the resources needed to ward off attacks. Cloud computing helps IT executives meet these conflicting objectives. These solutions are designed on a modern architecture, one much more fluid than premises-based systems. In addition, cloud is better able to handle threats than legacy systems. To be successful, CIOs need to overcome their traditional security (on premises is best) mindset, and hand management of their most important applications over to a cloud provider.

The core technology behind Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has evolved for decades. More recently, DRaaS has linked to the cloud, and finally hit its stride. Today it can provide unprecedented availability options to companies who don’t have secondary data centers dedicated to business continuity. Before now, only IT teams with additional IT budget, staff and geographic locations could effectively hedge against downtime, and disasters. But today’s DRaaS means that businesses of all sizes have the peace of mind that comes with knowing a replica of their data and systems is hosted at a remote site that they can fail over to—without bearing any of the infrastructure costs or maintenance responsibilities. All infrastructure and maintenance is the responsibility of the DRaaS provider. And the technology ensures that a replica is not only available, but always current and immediately available. This attractive value proposition led Gartner to predict that global DRaaS revenue will rea

Gartner Report: Competitive Landscape for Hyperconverged Integrated Systems. Accelerate business outcomes and achieve growth with hyperconverged integrated systems (HCIS). Key findings: As the hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) market has matured in the past two years, some smaller providers without sufficient bases, technical resources and cash to survive on their own have exited the market." • "HCIS-only providers that have a sustainable sales advantage based on effective communication of technical strengths that can deliver superior cost savings or performance advantages are most likely to remain viable as the market continues to grow." • "HCIS providers without compelling value propositions to differentiate their offerings against other HCIS solutions are unlikely to survive the increasing competitive pressure that is appearing in the market."

In recent years, the legal marketplace has seen an influx of new start-ups and new entrants looking to challenge the long-standing service model offered by law firms to their clients. Traditionally, clients looked to their law firms to provide a full range of legal and legal-related services, i.e., to handle every aspect of a matter, even including those activities that did not involve the direct provision of legal services. Today, by contrast, consumers of legal services find themselves the beneficiaries of a new and growing number of nontraditional service providers that are changing the way legal work is getting done. These alternative providers comprise a new sector of the legal market, one that is emerging and evolving rapidly, but is still very much in its infancy.

After switching to a new provider– First Advantage Resident Screening–the company discovered some impressive benefits, including better data, more streamlined processes, greater reporting flexibility, reduced bad debt and higher efficiency overall.

Digital transformation has changed the face of business across the globe. New digital technologies— specifically, mobile devices—are opening new avenues for companies to engage their prospects and manage their operations with greater effectiveness and efficiency. However, in the healthcare space, the response to these technological innovations has been reserved. While it’s undeniable that digital transformation could bring great change to the healthcare space just as it has in other industries, obstacles like regulatory compliance and rigid systems of record discourage the adoption of new tools and technology. This has led to frustration from all sides of the healthcare ecosystem. Many people are accustomed to using intuitive digital applications in their everyday lives, so when healthcare applications deliver archaic user experiences, everyone is left wanting more. Patients and members want applications that enable them to manage their health more easily. Providers want to provide new
