Changes in Data Center Management

  1. 1. Changes in Data Center ManagementOver the past few years, the data centers have evolved and have come up with cooled rooms that can storeseveral servers. These new age data centers therefore aim to reduce the overall footprint have high density serversthat require high-end power and cooling systems. In addition to that, due to the ongoing security threats, datacenters also have advanced security systems that are monitored and managed from remote locations.Today the technology advancements and innovative IT systems have also given rise to certain complicacies thathave made data center management a laborious process. Traditionally, data centers have remained static over aperiod of time. Most enterprises that went on to become IT enabled have set up data centers with numerous orless physical servers by following a simple approach in monitoring the set up.Generally the IT enabled team would be accountable for the server sprawl while the facilities team taking chargeof the cooling, power and building management. These two teams interacted with each other when a group wasrecording certain concerns to any element being managed by the other group, making modifications in the datacenter. These groups did not have instant insight into the other’s practices and initiatives.However, based on the research and results on energy needs, organizations today most often overprovision powerand cooling capabilities with an objective to fulfill forthcoming demands. This apart, some enterprises utilize OEMsoftware management solutions offered by data center solution providers to monitor the respective data centerprograms.Industry Offerings for Data Center SolutionsThe majority of organizations prefer their IT architecture to assist them to expand without dragging down theircapacity leading to excess spending on maintenance requirements. No enterprises wants to experiencebottlenecks such as shrinking storage space, overloaded servers, complaining IT engineers, recurring IT hurdlesthat would lead to waste of money, time and vital resources. To be able to keep operating in today’s competitivemarket, most enterprises should invest in advanced data center solutions. Today cloud computing serviceproviders have come up with advanced data center solutions offering:· Dedicated hosting· Shared hosting services· Co-location services· Bandwidth services· Load balancing
  2. 2. · Disaster recovery services· Advanced firewall servicesWith the ongoing economic change data center space too have attained a premium that made power expenses togo high. Organizations found it difficult to detect a space to establish additional server capacity and provisionpower cost-efficiently. Addressing this space concern, organizations in order to reduce space requirements optedin for blade servers that effectively toned down a server in to a compact form so that multiple servers can bestored in one rack space.Related Links: business continuity disaster recovery, network penetration testing
