Planning a data centre relocation is a job of tremendous significance, whether you operate a big organization or a small business.
The Climate Neutral Data Center Pact is the herald of new realities in the IT and electronic equipment recycling and recovery industry.
Businesses are growing increasingly dependent on technology, and as a result, the number of available hardware options is growing. This also means that businesses are increasingly faced with a major dilemma - what to do with retiring computing, as well as that which reached end-of-life?
There are three basic elements to the lifecycle of every data center gear - the acquisition of hardware, its maintenance, and its disposal. While historically, data center operators turned to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) for the first two and handled the latter themselves, when it comes to maintenance, there is a cheaper, and more effective solution - third-party maintenance (TPM).
Any data center commissioning project needs to be properly broken down and structured, as that allows the managers to keep track of the progress, and the budget, and minimize any potential risks.
So, you’ve decided to finally take the plunge and move your data center to a new location. If that’s the case, the first thing you need to do is come up with a detailed project plan. That way, you’ll be able to track the progress of the entire effort, as well as of individual steps, to make sure it all goes smoothly and without unwanted improvisations.
Here are the seven steps that lead to a cost-reduced and efficient completion of a data center setup.
To ensure optimal performance, commissioning is necessary for any type of facility. For a data center, it is essential.
A data center commission is a studious, and often methodical work, that’s necessary to making sure the brand new data center works as intended. Most of the time, the process is announced in the moments before opening the data center, misleading many into believing the process is fast and simple.
Data center commissioning is still often misunderstood, which makes the definition of the term very unclear. As a result, some of the most beneficial commissioning techniques are overlooked due to differing points of view. These disagreements lead to misunderstandings, inadequate application, and disregard for commissioning procedures.
These days, increased demand for construction services and the acceleration of the construction process as a whole demand a change in best practices for commissioning (Cx).
Here at Dataknox, we are ready to provide you with all the information you need to make a sound decision because at the end of the day - you not only want but need to know what’s going on.
Commissioning a data center is a crucial procedure that guarantees all your hardware, software, and infrastructure operations are in line with the Owner's Project Requirements (OPR) document - the functional requirements of a project and the expectations for its use.
Over the last half-decade or so, the open-source networking operating system SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud), has been ramping up massive interest.
When it comes to taking care of data centers, third-party maintenance (TPM) has become increasingly present in the modern IT ecosystem. Enterprises are cashing out big bucks for these networked computer servers and understandably so, want to maximize their investment through quality support and maintenance.
With rising energy costs and bandwidth demands, reducing a data center’s operating expenses (OpEx) to more predictable and controllable levels is imperative. For 2023 and beyond, there is a power-efficient data center solution that tackles the economic and managerial sides of the equation: third-party maintenance.
Even before the Linux Foundation took charge of the network operating system (NOS), Software for Open Networking in the Cloud or SONiC, as it’s widely known, was poised to alter the way numerous enterprises, hyperscalers, and service providers operate their networks.
