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 ability to deliver IT service in an agile, cost-effective manner is increasingly a strategic business differentiator as the demand for IT swells and strains the current physical infrastructure management methodology. Much of the focus on flexible datacenters centers around the software application, compute, networking, and storage layers. Only after an initiative has begun are the most suitable best practices in datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) considered.

WebEx elected to pursue a course of investigation and analysis that required a granular picture of its application-centric hardware implementations and corresponding power usage profiles. To accomplish this, WebEx decided to retool their datacenters with intelligent power strips having the ability to remotely report power consumption. Coupled with the desire to reduce the number of instances requiring a “remote hands” service call to their colocation facilities, WebEx decided that remote power outlet management was also a necessity. With the help of a Server Technology (STI) Power Strategy Expert, WebEx chose CDUS from the Switched product family. The breadth of Switched products offered, coupled with the regulatory requirements of the numerous geographies needed to be supported made STI a logical choice for Cisco WebEx.

A number of factors in today’s market are driving the datacenter operator to increase the density and the operational loading of the compute infrastructure. Among these factors are the desire to reduce both capital and operational expenditures, improve energy efficiency (lower PUE), avoidance of new build-out, reduction of latency times, and better management of network traffic flow. Historically, the aggregate power load of the datacenter cabinet has ranged from 1-5 kW for a 42U rack. A full rack of single (or dual) corded 1U servers, in the aptly nicknamed “pizza box” form factor, were the original drivers for a high density (scale out) rack and high outlet count PDU.

Align your IT infrastructure with the demands of your customer base Finding a technology partner that understands your customers is crucial to success. When Linedata, a financial software and services provider, launched its new SaaS offering, it needed a world-class data center, and a trusted network carrier to connect clients to the product. But serving clients in the investment management and leasing and lending markets, Linedata knew it was also critical that their partner understand the unique and demanding requirements of the financial industry. After evaluating numerous vendors, Linedata chose CenturyLink Technology Solutions – which had everything it needed and more. CenturyLink met all three of Linedata’s core criteria, having strong security compliance, a reliable global network and a deep understanding of the financial industry.

Responding to increasing security threats and regulation, enterprises face a range of challenges in providing a comprehensive IT security program. Organizations are now shifting to the real-time transfer of data between data centers, and implementing on-the-fly data encryption with key management for security. Physical Layer encryption is the preferred method for securing data across the data center connect (DCC) WAN, deployed across optical fiber and DWDM for converged LAN and SAN traffic. Optical DWDM solutions enable the highest throughput for DCC at the lowest TCO. The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) is a best-of-breed DWDM platform, and the integrated physical layer encryption lowers data center security risks and increases data confidentiality, integrity and availability.

When data center managers think of environmental management and monitoring they typically think of temperature sensors, and perhaps humidity sensors but, where should they be placed? Though temperature sensors remain the most prevalent sensors, there are many sensors which can be usefully deployed in a data center. There are sensors for determining whether a cabinet door is open, the difference in pressure between two locations, the rate of airflow, and the presence of water. There are even sensors for tracking IT assets. This white paper will review some of the sensors which are useful in a data center. There was a time, not long ago, when data center managers relied on the room thermostat to indicate the ambient temperature of a data center. They would set the temperature in the mid-60s°F to ensure adequate cooling. Now, most data center managers know that such an ambient temperature is unnecessarily cold and wasteful of energy.

Many data center managers are doing a good job conserving energy – decreasing PUE, raising data center temperatures, using air-side economizers to reduce energy consumption for cooling – but average power consumption at the rack is still going up. In fact, the increased efficiency means more power is available for servers to support data center growth. Data centers are finding that they must deploy more and more power to their racks. This white paper addresses considerations surrounding the deployment of high power.

You have read about DCIM but are just not sure if this is the right time to deploy. The truth is that with information pouring in from all different sources, it is almost impossible to parse through all the noise and figure out if DCIM software is right for your Data Center to consider starting a Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) project. Is this the right time? If your data center is rapidly changing and you need better insight into your Data Center activity, it might be. We address these questions and others in this e-Book.
