Raising IT inlet temperatures is a common recommendation given to data center operators as a strategy to improve data center efficiency. While it is true that raising the temperature does result in more economizer hours, it does not always have a positive impact on the data center overall. In this paper, we provide a cost (capex & energy) analysis of a data center to demonstrate the importance of evaluating the data center holistically, inclusive of the IT equipment energy. The impact of raising temperatures on server failures is also discussed.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty. Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.

The rising demands for capturing and managing video surveillance data are placing new pressures on state and local governments, law enforcement agencies, and education officials. The challenges go beyond the expanding costs of equipment, storage, software and management time. Officials must also lay the right foundation to scale their capabilities, improve performance and still remain flexible in a rapidly evolving ecosystem of surveillance tools. Find out what state, local government and education IT leaders need to know, and what steps you can take to: • Improve performance and ROI on cameras-per-server for the dollars invested • Optimize and simplify the management of daily surveillance processing, including the integration of facial recognition, redaction and analysis software • Fortify reliability and dependability to reduce the risk of surveillance data retrieval failures.

Not long ago Gartner released an oft-quoted statistic: 95% of private clouds fail. According to Tom Bittman, VP Distinguished Analyst at Gartner, of 140 customers polled, 95% reported “something was wrong” with their private cloud. Identifying a shortcoming and labeling it a “failure” might be a bit of hyperbole, but it still leaves enterprises wondering if there is a place for private cloud in their strategy. This paper will attempt to answer this question, and will focus on the role of OpenStack in particular as a private cloud solution.

Old Dutch Foods, known for its broad selection of snack foods in the midwest United States and Canada, was struggling to get the right products to the right places at the right time. Its data center included outdated physical servers, and batch processing meant that inventory would not be updated until the end of the day as opposed to real time. In addition, recovering from power outages and disk failures could frequently take up to two weeks. To modernize its data center, Old Dutch Foods invested in EMC Converged Infrastructure. The fast and easy deployment of two VCE VBlock® systems running JD Edwards, MS Exchange, mobile device apps, and operation of a backup site with replicated applications and data. This enhanced the IT department's responsiveness to the business, allowed them to shift to real-time inventory, and reduced CapEx and OpEx costs. Operations were simplified by reducing person-hours needed for infrastructure maintenance by 75 percent.

In 2014, the UK saw online sales exceed £10bn per month. For small businesses, getting online is a great way to increase revenue. However, there’s no escaping the fact that small e-retailers are most at risk of suffering a data breach and that breaches are increasing. It is your responsibility to keep the card payment data of your customers safe and a failure to secure your systems could be a costly mistake which leads to penalty fines, lost custom and bad publicity. Worldpay is the leading payments provider in the UK and Europe. Whilst Worldpay has fewer businesses suffering data breaches, compared to our market size, we have a unique oversight on most UK card data breaches. We have compiled our insight and advice into this guide so all businesses, new or old, can ensure they are prepared.

How effective is your mobile app development process when it comes to understanding customer needs and delivering the right apps at the right time? IBM commissioned Forrester to identify the key drivers of successful mobile apps and the costs of failure -- for both customer-facing and enterprise applications. Watch the webcast to understand the key cost drivers and why it’s more important than ever to get this right due to what Forrester calls the “mobile mind shift” and the competitive reality of “mobile moments.” We also invited our customer, Bank of Montreal, to share their mobile app dev story. A good app can increase traffic, sales, productivity and brand satisfaction (see what happened for the Bank of Montreal). And a bad app will do the opposite (you could risk doubling your costs if you’re not mindful of the key cost drivers).

When was the last time you thought about your disaster recovery plan? Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, or floods can occur anytime and disable your data center, with little to no warning. Hacker activities like a denial of service attack can also take down your systems unexpectedly. Then you have the more mundane risks such as human error and hardware or software failures. The only predictable thing to say about these risks is that at some point, on some scale, you’ll have to recover your data center from downtime. When it comes to disaster readiness, proactive planning is the key to success. Every business, regardless of size, needs to have a well-tested disaster recovery plan in place. Every minute your systems are down, the financial implications grow. Take the assessment to see where your disaster recovery plan ranks. Then learn about next steps and more information.

No business is immune to the threat of IT downtime caused by natural and manmade disasters. Natural disasters—such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, and floods—can happen with little to no advanced warning. But the bigger risk is often human-induced events—from simple IT configuration errors to significant data center problems. If you lack a rock-solid disaster recovery (DR) plan, any of these unpredictable events—natural or manmade—could bring your business and its revenue streams to a halt. Yet many organizations are not well prepared for the unknown. The randomness of such events lulls people into a sense of false security—“That’s not likely to happen here.” While you can hope to avoid events that threaten the continuity of your business, the reality remains unchanged: Disasters happen—so you need to prepare for them. Are you prepared? Please download this eBook to find out!

Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) operators have proven they can breach enterprises like yours by undermining your critical security controls when you fail to protect digital certificates and cryptographic keys. Not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.

In today’s technology-rich world, customers and employees demand the highest level of application performance. Failure to provide access to applications that consistently perform well anytime, anywhere, and on any device, often leads to lower productivity, customer dissatisfaction, decreased revenue and market share, and damage to brand reputation. This paper explores the challenges that today’s CIOs face in regard to application performance, and how a more strategic data center approach, like distributing applications closer to your users, can help optimize application performance and reduce IT costs.
