To maximize efficiency in the data center, you first have to “follow the money” which means understanding where the bulk of your costs are and determining how to best maximize those resources by increasing efficiency and therefore reducing costs. When operating a data center, it is clear that the high cost items are the power and cooling. You hear a great deal of industry talk about increasing data center efficiency with conclusions typically being drawn like “just operate your facility at higher temperatures”, use “free cooling” to reduce cooling costs, implement “virtualization and consolidation projects” to reduce power consumption, determine which servers are zombies and turn them off, or use capacity planning to decide where to install new devices.

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.

As is often the case, it wasn’t one single objective that drove Digital Fortress to seek a solution, but multiple independent goals that could only be met with enhanced data center visibility. Outdated monitoring platforms, increasing customer capacity demands, and rapidly shrinking margins for error all combined to present serious obstacles to efficiency and growth, making it clear that greatly improved monitoring capabilities were needed immediately. Digital Fortress’s customers are demanding more power than ever before. While typical per-cabinet power usage projections used to fall in the 1.7 - 2kW range, these days 5kW per cabinet is the norm. In fact some of Digital Fortress’s higher density customer require 9 - 15kW per cabinet, with a few using as much as 25kW. With power densities like these, accurate capacity planning and reliable cooling are critical, and continuous environmental monitoring a necessity.

Matt Lane, Geist DCIM President, discusses real-time monitoring and how monitoring critical devices in the data center is not always delivered as real-time. Once monitoring options are understood, a decision can be made as to what type of monitoring is best for the data center. Is real-time monitoring and management really necessary or is it just as beneficial to have near-time or extended interval monitoring options? Matt answers this question by explaining the difference between the three monitoring types and how each can enhance or be detrimental to the data center.

The first decade of the 21st century was one of rapid growth and change for data centers. For most of the decade, data center managers were forced to react to rapid, continuous changes dictated by the capacity and availability requirements of their organizations, and the density of the equipment being deployed to meet those requirements.

The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging. Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.

Part 3 in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." As distributed edge environments become more critical, physical security becomes more important. Nobody would leave their data center wide open for anyone to enter, but that’s exactly how many organizations treat their edge computing sites. Often, they consist of a rack or two of gear in a non-dedicated location, perhaps a janitor’s closet, with little to no physical security. Fill out your information and click "Register" to watch the third event in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, “Customer Demands at the Edge: Protect me from Downtime!” This webinar originally aired on November 9th, 2017. In this webinar, we discuss physical security best practices, including environmental issues such as temperature and humidity monitoring. We also update partners on the physical security features of the latest APC racks and the NetBotz line of security and environmental appliances, cameras and sensors.

Today’s data center power and cooling infrastructure has roughly 3 times more data points / notifications than it did 10 years ago. Traditional data center remote monitoring services have been available for over 10 years but were not designed to support this amount of data monitoring and the associated alarms, let alone extract value from the data. This paper explains how seven trends are defining monitoring service requirements and how this will lead to improvements in data center operations and maintenance.

HCAHPS is the barometer for understanding a patient’s hospital experience. But can you predict the outcome of your patient satisfaction surveys by reading online reviews from past and present patients? And more importantly, does improving your hospital’s online reputation improve HCAHPS scores? Yes.’s Data Science team, led by Brad Null, Ph.D, analyzed two years of HCAHPS hospital survey data from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, across more than 4,800 hospitals. The team reviewed the data alongside online reviews, ratings and rankings for those same hospitals, and made some significant discoveries: • Online reviews provide early warning of issues that may impact patient experience, giving hospitals the opportunity to identify and address those issues before patient satisfaction scores suffer. • By continually monitoring, managing, requesting and responding to patient reviews, a healthcare organization can address negative feedback that impacts HCAHPS resu

An Intelligent Roadmap for Capacity Planning Many organizations apply overly simplistic principles to determine requirements for compute capacity in their virtualized data centers. These principles are based on a resource allocation model which takes the total amount of memory and CPU allocated to all virtual machines in a compute cluster, and assumes a defined level of over provisioning (e.g. 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, 12:1) in order to calculate the requirement for physical resources. Often managed in spreadsheets or simple databases, and augmented by simple alert-based monitoring tools, the resource allocation model does not account for actual resource consumption driven by each application workload running in the operational environment, and inherently corrodes the level of efficiency that can be driven from the underlying infrastructure.
