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.
Modern storage arrays can’t compete on price without a range of data reduction
technologies that help reduce the overall total cost of ownership of external
storage. Unfortunately, there is no one single data reduction technology that fits
all data types and we see savings being made with both data deduplication and
compression, depending on the workload. Typically, OLTP-type data (databases)
work well with compression and can achieve between 2:1 and 3:1 reduction,
depending on the data itself. Deduplication works well with large volumes of
repeated data like virtual machines or virtual desktops, where many instances or
images are based off a similar “gold” master.
Gartner Report: Competitive Landscape for Hyperconverged Integrated Systems. Accelerate business outcomes and achieve growth with hyperconverged integrated systems (HCIS). Key findings: As the hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) market has matured in the past two years, some smaller providers without sufficient bases, technical resources and cash to survive on their own have exited the market." • "HCIS-only providers that have a sustainable sales advantage based on effective communication of technical strengths that can deliver superior cost savings or performance advantages are most likely to remain viable as the market continues to grow." • "HCIS providers without compelling value propositions to differentiate their offerings against other HCIS solutions are unlikely to survive the increasing competitive pressure that is appearing in the market."
The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load.

Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way
to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and
potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.

Sure, ROI calculators help distill anecdotal evidence and analyze cost savings associated with travel, but it usually goes something like this: total hours spent traveling + cost of hotel, rental car, and food divided by the number of meeting hours. Well, at least that’s one version.
No matter the final number, the ROI total savings on cost of travel is only part of the story. Calculating the true ROI of video conferencing combines facts with real-life tangibles to help you understand and quantify your investment.
If you’re anything like your peers, you are evaluating your education technology on an annual basis to determine if it’s time for a refresh. While most schools conduct their device refreshes during the summer because teachers, staff and students are not present, this timing can prove costly as the market is flooded with devices from schools doing the same thing.
To help school districts re-think their technology spending to focus more on total cost of ownership and residual value, as opposed to upfront cost, we’ve partnered with Diamond Assets — a technology buyback company — to explain:
• The true value and cost of iPad and Chromebook in education
• When schools receive the most trade-in value for their technology
• How to prepare for and execute technology refreshes
