Here's the thing about data centers: overheated servers and cooling failures are worse than power failures. This e-guide will help you re-evaluate your data center's physical metrics and update your facilities management strategy.
Some of the most useful benchmarks and metrics in evaluating server performance are provided in this article along with descriptions to help IT managers identify the ones that best fit their organization.
Data center managers used to describe their facilities in terms of square footage. All of this has changed, however, and power consumption is now the reference of choice.

While already on the lookout for ways to reduce costs, large enterprises are under increasing pressure to use less energy.

The passive network infrastructure has been often viewed as an afterthought, as the simple nut-and-bolt building blocks onto which are hung the servers, switches, and other active network equipment as well as the cabling.
This white paper presents a key case study of how Speedscan consolidated their disparate physical infrastructures within a single virtualized data center to improve energy efficiency by 92%.
