Data centers

  1. 1. DATA CENTERS<br />
  2. 2. The Need<br />11 March 2010<br />2<br /><ul><li>Every organization is under pressure to accomplish more with less resources (financial, technologically, and human capital)
  3. 3. Many are finding that specific targets for reduction have been set, especially in the near term
  4. 4. Server and storage growth do not appear to be keeping pace with economic times – in some cases, the needs for technology are on the rise
  5. 5. Server sprawl continues in a lot of cases – even with virtualized servers
  6. 6. The impact of storage growth is stressing backup and recovery subsystems and the frequency of missed backup windows remains for many
  7. 7. The typical data center will run out of power and cooling – many already have
  8. 8. Facilities and IT continue to struggle with an integrated capacity planning approach
  9. 9. Disaster recovery is something most organizations “hope” they can achieve, but wouldn’t want to test it
  10. 10. Each of these areas require attention, but in today’s economic times, how do you prioritize?</li></li></ul><li>Data Center Components<br />11 March 2010<br />3<br />People & Process<br />Data Centres<br />Servers<br />Infrastructure<br />Management<br />Storage<br />Power & Cooling<br />Backup<br />Security<br />Network<br />
  11. 11. Data Center Infrastructure<br />Data Centers are valuable resources as they get close to capacity those resources must be carefully managed<br />Infrastructure includes<br />Racks<br />Switches and switch ports<br />VLANs<br />Patch panels and cables (of all types)<br />Power utilization and monitoring<br />Generators<br />High voltage power components <br />HVAC components<br />By accurately tracking the usage of systems and their placement in the data center we can ensure that overload conditions do not occur <br />4<br />BMS<br />

  23. 23. Geo-failover without geo-clusters
  24. 24. Complexity of failover is nearly eliminated
  25. 25. Leveraging the same infrastructure and storage functionality without extra software licensing and other overhead
  26. 26. RTOs and RPOs are achieved without fully redundant servers and DR state doesn’t have to sacrifice availability due to diminished configurations</li></li></ul><li>Business Drivers<br />Technology Enablers<br />Value Proposition<br /><ul><li>Drive Out Cost:
