When you hear the words “remote management,” what picture comes to your mind? Is it your boss calling you on the phone? Is it of a marionette dancing at the end of its strings? Or is it your feet up on the desk, knowing that everything in your data center is under control and performing as it should? If your vision is not the last one, then you need to consider changing your data center design to incorporate the best the industry has to offer in the way of power distribution. This brief explores remote power management as a way of ensuring that your data center works for you and not the other way around.

The past two decades have seen dramatic shifts in data center design. As application complexity grew, server sprawl pushed out the walls of the data center, expanding both the physical square footage as well as consumption of the most expensive part of the data center—energy. So the focus turned to high density computing, virtualization of servers, networking and storage, and more efficient cooling technologies. Technology advancements led to continued efforts to consolidate data center resources. Today, data center transformation efforts are concentrated on the services offered from the data center and data center analytics that lead to the streamlining of service delivery. Automation and orchestration are the key components of today’s transformation efforts.

Most companies hope to get as much as 20 years of dependable service from their data centers. Unfortunately, there are many obstacles to achieving that length of service. In particular, some of the key mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) components that data centers rely on are not designed to last that long. In addition, rapidly changing data processing requirements demand that data centers remain flexible and support greater rack densities.

Containment Solutions can eliminate hot spots and provide energy savings over traditional uncontained data center designs. The best containment solutions for an existing facility will depend on the constraints of the facility. While ducted hot aisle containment is preferred for highest efficiency, cold aisle containment tends to be easier and more cost effective for facilities with existing raised floor air distribution. This paper investigates the constraints, reviews all available containment methods, and provides recommendation for determining the best containment approach.

Designing a data center can be a daunting and complicated process. There are many considerations and decisions that ultimately impact the cost to build, operate and scale the data center. In the past, IT departments provided an estimate of the equipment and power needs required for their various systems. Many of these estimates were either inaccurate speculations based on current needs with no forethought given to the IT roadmap and business growth, or they were overinflated based on worsecase scenarios. Facilities then used these estimates to either build exactly what was requested or to once again overinflate the design in attempts to protect themselves. This outdated process resulted in large inefficient data centers that were costly to operate and virtually impossible to upgrade.

As most data center professionals can attest, bandwidth needs continue to increase for today’s business-driven technologies. This demand for higher bandwidth results in an increase in fiber optic ports for networking and storage. Over the past several decades of data center cabling evolution, this increase has led to significant challenges in the management of fiber cabling infrastructures. One key component that makes managing this increase in fiber ports and density much easier is port replication in patch panel design. Proper port replication simplifies fiber cable management and increases uptime potential.

There’s an emerging movement among a new generation of colocation providers called "Data Center 2.0." Whereas in the many established colocation providers take a one size fits all approach—providing space, power, cooling, connectivity, and onsite security—Colocation 2.0 providers see these things as table stakes. They believe the real value to colocation customers is now in improved service, and in designing data centers as better, more people-friendly environments.

Cooling optimization in a data center provides a significant opportunity for reducing operating costs since cooling systems consume 34% of the power used by a data center, according to Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory. Due to the need to maintain five nines (99.999%) reliability, data centers are too often overdesigned in terms of the cooling capacity, and operating budgets pay the price for this practice. As a result, many data centers have significant opportunities to reduce operating costs by improving the cooling system efficiency.

When Enterprise and Service Providers are looking at building Software-Driven Data Centers (SDDC) and Software-Driven Services, many times these applications and networks are designed, built, deployed and managed as separate, discrete entities. The result is a lack of flexibility. All too often the data center network cannot easily scale to accommodate growth, cannot handle new types of traffic and workloads, cannot take advantage of cloud automation and orchestration opportunities, and cannot move large volumes of data. This white paper takes a close look at the importance of moving to an agile, high-performance, next-generation data center network with three key areas that need to be addressed in order to do so: The Data Center Interconnect, Cloud Connectivity, and Building Cloud-Aware Networks.

Forward-looking data center designers and managers realize that, now that the standards are largely defined, migration of ethernet links from 10 Gb/s to 40 and 100 Gb/s as well as fiber channel links from 4 to 8 to 16 Gb/s is rapidly accelerating. With further interesting wrinkles such as high density 10 Gigabit links (four 10 Gb/s channels combined in a single 40 Gb/s QSFP port and ten 10Gb/s channels combined in a single 100G port), physical aggregation layers, and direct-attach circuits, having a clear and defined plan is not just prudent, it is imperative. Fortunately a few simple rules can reduce much of the uncertainty in this process. Download this white paper today as your guide to keeping up with the pace.

Efficiency is a key objective when designing a data center. Efficiency gains are typically focused completely on power and cooling. Efficiencies can be realized in many other areas resulting in additional cost savings, reliable network performance, easier maintenance, flexibility, and scalability. The success and efficiency of the data center can be maximized by considering five key elements when designing: performance, time, space, experience, and sustainability.

A number of associations, consultants and vendors have promoted best practices for enhancing data center energy efficiency. These practices cover everything from facility lighting to cooling system design, and have proven useful in helping some companies slow or reverse the trend of rising data center energy consumption. However, most organizations still lack a cohesive, holistic approach for reducing data center energy use.
