Although the cost of flash storage solutions continues to fall, on a per-gigabyte capacity basis, it is still significantly more expensive to acquire than traditional hard drives. However, when the cost per gigabyte is examined in terms of TCO, and the customer looks past the pure acquisition cost and accounts for “soft factors” such as prolonging the life of a data center, lower operating costs (for example, power and cooling), increased flexibility and scalability, or the service levels that a flash solution enables, flash solution costs become increasingly competitive with spinning media.

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.

The Cray® CS300-LC™ liquid-cooled cluster supercomputer combines system performance and power savings, allowing users to reduce capital expense and operating costs. The Trend Toward Liquid Cooling Recent IDC surveys of the worldwide high performance computing (HPC) market consistently show that cooling today's larger, denser HPC systems has become a top challenge for datacenter managers. The surveys reveal a notable trend toward liquid cooling systems, and warm water cooling has emerged as an effective alternative to chilled liquid cooling.

"Power and Cooling", a video presentation, uses vivid computer modeling to illustrate why traditional trial-and-error approaches are inadequate for effective thermal management . Data center cooling costs now account for half of all power-related outlays. And they continue to soar. But cutting these costs - while at the same time improving availability and capacity - is achievable. The trick is knowing how.

The recent release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on data center energy efficiency is adding fuel to the fire in the research and development of new ways to reduce energy use in centers. The findings, summarized on the EPA website, are staggering: Data centers consumed about 60 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2006, roughly 1.5 percent of total US electricity consumption -Energy consumption of servers and data centers has doubled in the past five years and is expected to almost double again in the next five years to more than 100 billion kWh, costing about $7.4 billion annually.

A high percentage of today’s data centers use water-based cooling methods. Although evaporative cooling, whether through traditional towers or “advanced” adiabatic cooling systems (aka swamp coolers), remain highly effective cooling methods, when you’re planning a new data center you may want to consider the impact of the weather and water availability on your decision.

Poor rack cable management has proven to many data center operators to be a source of downtime and frustration during moves, adds and changes. It can also lead to data transmission errors, safety hazards, poor cooling efficiency, and a negative overall look and feel of the data center. This paper discuses the benefits of effective rack cable management, provides guidance for cable management within IT racks including high density and networking IT racks, which will improve cable traceability and troubleshooting time while reducing the risk of human error.

Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers, including flexibility, improved predictability, and faster speed of deployment. Cost , however, is sometimes stated as a barrier to deploying these designs. In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come at a capex premium . The analysis was completed and validated with Romonet’s Cloud-based Analytics Platform, a vendor-neutral industry resource.

Cooling tends to take a back seat to other concerns when server rooms and small to mid-size data centers are first built. As computing needs grow, increased heat production can compromise equipment performance and cause shutdowns. Haphazard data center expansion creates cooling inefficiencies that magnify these heat-related problems. Users may assume that they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is expensive and often unnecessary. In most cases, low-cost rack cooling best practices will solve heat-related problems. Best practices optimize airflow, increase efficiency, prevent downtime and reduce costs.
