Efficiency is a key objective when designing a data center. Efficiency
gains are typically focused completely on power and cooling. Efficiencies can be realized in many other areas resulting in additional cost savings, reliable network performance, easier maintenance, flexibility, and scalability.
What to expect and how to prepare your best defense
DDoS attackers launch hundreds of DDoS attacks every day. When a DDoS attack strikes an organization, panic is common. No one knows why systems and applications are failing, who to call, or what questions to ask. Meanwhile, senior leaders want answers. Planning ahead and being prepared is your best defense against DDoS attacks.
This white paper explores best practices for building and maintaining a DDoS protection plan. You’ll learn what to expect from a DDoS attack, how to prepare, what to put in a DDoS runbook, and how to test your plan.

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. End users may assume they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is 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.
"IoT adoption is expected to generate a 21% increase in corporate profits by 2022. This business value comes from the ability to automate processes and collect and analyze massive amounts of data—so organizations can make better informed decisions and deliver powerful customer experiences.
But how are organizations really putting IoT to work for their business? And how can IoT risks be mitigated so these rewards can truly be achieved?
This e-book explores the potential of IoT in the enterprise, which industries are leading the way and how to secure your connected things. It also provides:
• 7 best practices for data privacy and security policies
• 7 items to consider for device security
• 6 key considerations for network connection security"
"Healthcare organizations have significantly more to consider than the average business when it comes to network and device security. Concern over code modification, key compromise, password-based vulnerabilities and man-in-the-middle attacks have caused hospital CIOs and CISOs to rethink their security strategies and investments. The threat to these devices has even been assigned its own term: medjacking, a shortened form of “medical device hijacking.”
