Cloud solutions are the “new normal” as organizations opt to deploy more business systems “in the cloud.” For learning professionals, cloud-based solutions provide a wide range of benefits from cost savings to decreased delivery time, to global reach. Before selecting a cloud-based learning provider, you should understand all the benefits and be prepared to ask potential providers critical questions regarding the architecture and management of the service you are considering.

Long term data center or network room capacity planning may seem impossible in the face of evolving IT technology and business requirements. Nevertheless, data center facilities have a lifetime that may span many generations of IT equipment, so planning – or lack of planning – can have a large impact on the effectiveness of investments. Many unnecessary costs can be avoided with simple planning strategies, and even uncertainty itself can be incorporated into a plan. This paper shows a simple and effective way to develop a capacity plan for a data center or network room.

Of the various economizer (free cooling) modes for data centers, using fresh air is often viewed as the most energy efficient approach. However, this paper shows how indirect air economizer-based cooling produces similar or better energy savings while eliminating risks posed when outside fresh air is allowed directly into the IT space.

Every Information Technology professional who is responsible for the operation of computing equipment needs to ensure their data center or network room is prepared for extended utility power outages. Understanding the basic functions and concepts of standby generator systems helps provide a solid foundation allowing IT professionals to successfully specify, install, and operate critical facilities. This paper is an introduction to standby generators and subsystems that power a facility’s critical electrical loads when the utility cannot.

It's inevitable that upgrading to a new version of an operating system or application comes with a bit of a learning curve. With Windows 8.1, though--and its predecessor Windows 8--the curve is steep, and just finding simple tools and features can be a challenge.

The use of modern enclosed hot aisles to address increasing power densities in the data center has brought into question the suitability of working conditions in these hot aisle environments. In this paper, it is determined that the additional heat stress imposed by such high density IT environments is of minimal concern.

Before data center infrastructure efficiency can be benchmarked using PUE or other metrics, there must be agreement on exactly what power consumptions constitute IT loads, what consumptions constitute physical infrastructure, and what loads should not be counted. This paper explains the problem and describes a standardized method for classifying data center loads for efficiency calculations.

A floor plan strongly affects the power density capability and electrical efficiency of a data center. Despite this critical role in data center design, many floor plans are established through incremental deployment without a central plan. Once a poor floor plan has been deployed, it is often difficult or impossible to recover the resulting loss of performance. This paper provides structured floor plan guidelines for defining room layouts and for establishing IT equipment layouts within existing rooms.

In data center design/build projects, flaws in project management and coordination are a common – but unnecessary – cause of delays, expense, and frustration. The ideal is for project management activities to be structured and standardized like interlocking building blocks, so all parties can communicate with a common language, avoid responsibility gaps and duplication of effort, and achieve an efficient process with a predictable outcome. This paper presents a framework for project management roles and relationships that is understandable, comprehensive, and adaptable to any size project.

This paper presents a detailed quantitative efficiency comparison between the most efficient DC and AC power distribution methods, including an analysis of the effects of power distribution efficiency on the cooling power requirement and on total electrical consumption. The latest high efficiency AC and DC power distribution architectures are shown to have virtually the same efficiency, suggesting that a move to a DC-based architecture is unwarranted on the basis of efficiency.

It is no longer practical or cost-effective to completely engineer all aspects of a unique data center. Re-use of proven, documented subsystems or complete designs is a best practice for both new data centers and for upgrades to existing data centers. In this paper reference designs are defined and their benefits are explained.

Planning of a data center physical infrastructure project need not be a time consuming or frustrating task. Experience shows that if the right issues are resolved in the right order by the right people, vague requirements can be quickly translated into a detailed design. This paper outlines practical steps to be followed that can cut costs by simplifying and shortening the planning process while improving the quality of the plan.

While many who invest in Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software benefit greatly, some do not. Research has revealed a number of pitfalls that end users should avoid when evaluating and implementing DCIM solutions. Choosing an inappropriate solution, relying on inadequate processes, and a lack of commitment / ownership / knowledge can each undermine a chosen toolset’s ability to deliver the value it was designed to provide. This paper describes these common pitfalls and provides practical guidance on how to avoid them.

Data center systems or subsystems that are pre-assembled in a factory are often described with terms like prefabricated, containerized, modular, skid-based, pod-based, mobile, portable, self-contained, all-in-one, and more. There are, however, important distinctions between the various types of factory-built building blocks on the market. This paper proposes standard terminology for categorizing the types of prefabricated modular data centers, defines and compares their key attributes, and provides a framework for choosing the best approach(es) based on business requirements.

Analyst Wayne Kernochan of Infostructure Associates documents the analytics speed-up capability of DB2 with BLU Acceleration and explains how DB2 BLU compares with competitors. His conclusion after reviewing test results? Not surprisingly, the results verified a consistent, roughly order-of-magnitude speedup using BLU Acceleration, against DB2 pre-BLU and against some obvious competitors. What is his advice to readers about DB2 BLU? If your upcoming database needs analytics/BI/reporting-related, why would you not use BLU Acceleration for them? In other words, what are you waiting for?
