Cobalt Data Centers operates a state of the art Tier III multi-tenant data center in the Las Vegas area that supports a broad customer base having a diverse and demanding set of requirements for security, reliability, and accessibility.
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.
There is no shortage of predictions regarding the future of data center power densities, but their track-record over the last decade has been poor. At the same time, there is also a general inconsistency in the way different groups define and discuss the topic of the high-density data center
Whether faced with the task of accommodating more users, consolidating datacenters, increasing virtualization, improving uptime, or just improving response times, the task of evaluating and implementing all of the required technology can prove both arduous and frustrating. A number of vendors have joined together to provide pre-defined rack level solutions of best-of-breed hardware along with software optimized to work on that configuration. The Vblock from VCE and FlexPod from NetApp + Cisco are but two examples of these “converged” systems. They typically are deployed entire racks at a time. A benefit of converged systems is that the buyer does not have to know as much about the internal workings of the various pieces of the system in order to have a rapid and successful deployment.

As our businesses become increasingly digital, we tend to think about technology in non-physical terms. Our IT infrastructure becomes “the cloud.” Our servers and storage become “virtual.” Our networks become “software-defined.”
The reality, however, is that information technology (IT) always depends on physical infrastructure. Without hardware there is no software. So to lose sight of technology’s physical realities is to jeopardize the wisdom with which we manage its physical underpinnings. And unwise management of those physical underpinnings leads to both higher operational costs and higher operational risks.

The rack power distribution unit (rack PDU) has emerged from obscurity. As the last link of the elaborate data center power chain, the traditional role of the rack PDU has been to deliver stable, reliable and adequate power to all the devices in the rack or cabinet—servers, storage, network equipment—which are plugged into it. Although it provides the electrical heartbeat to all the systems that run the critical applications that support the operation of the business (or that, in some cases, are the business); it was often considered a simple commodity, just a power strip. Typically, IT merely told facilities how much power was needed, based on device nameplate specs—and often with redundancy, so there was plenty of headroom and minimal risk of downtime. Little thought was given to efficiency or what other value a rack PDU could provide.

Application Delivery Controllers understand applications and optimize server performance - offloading compute-intensive tasks that prevent servers from quickly delivering applications. Learn how ADCs have taken over where load balancers left off.
If your organization's servers run applications that are critical to your business, chances are that you'd benefit from an application delivery solution. Today's Web applications can be delivered to users anywhere in the world and the devices used to access Web applications have become quite diverse.
At a projected market of over $4B by 2010 (Goldman Sachs), virtualizationhas firmly established itself as one of the most importanttrends in Information Technology. Virtualization is expectedto have a broad influence on the way IT manages infrastructure.Major areas of impact include capital expenditure and ongoingcosts, application deployment, green computing, and storage.
The idea of load balancing is well defined in the IT world: A network device accepts traffic on behalf ofa group of servers, and distributes that traffic according to load balancing algorithms and the availabilityof the services that the servers provide. From network administrators to server administrators to applicationdevelopers, this is a generally well understood concept.
The software-defined data center (SDDC) holds tremendous promise for enterprise IT. Within the SDDC, the benefits of server virtualization are extended to storage and networking, so the entire infrastructure can be abstracted and centrally managed under a unified platform. IT teams are able to leverage unprecedented levels of virtualization, orchestration, and automation to achieve the services-based delivery model that enables true digital transformation.
The Adwind Remote Administration Tool is a backdoor Trojan written in Java language that targets various platforms that support Java files. Adwind does not exploit any vulnerabilities. In most cases, for an infection to succeed, the user must run the malware by double-clicking the .jar file that is usually distributed as an attachment, or opening an infected Microsoft Word document. The infection spreads if the Java Runtime Environment is installed on the user's computer. After the malicious .jar file is executed on the target system, the malware installs silently and connects to a remote server via a preconfigured port to receive commands from a remote attacker and perform other illegal operations.
Microsoft Exchange Server has been a crucial technological breakthrough in advanced corporate communication systems. Companies who utilize an enterprise-class email server like Exchange believe that email is mission critical, and value the productivity it enables. But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.
