Capacity planning is one of the most difficult aspects of building a data center today, given the complexity and number of variables to consider.
This new White Paper, from leading solutions and innovation provider Panduit, brings fresh insight into the central issues facing data center planners both for initial “build” and for future growth, with valuable “real life” examples drawn from actual customer case studies.
Download now to understand how best to:
• Avoid capacity fragmentation: identify areas of “lost” or “stranded” capacity
• Establish “best fits” for capacity in your center
• Maintain equilibrium between the four critical elements of any effective data center management plan
• Implement proactive planning: speed decision-making and deployment
• Optimize existing resources
• Improve data center operations and efficiency
• Reduce OPEX
• Avoid unnecessary CAPEX by extending the life of your center.
This 12-page white paper describes what a data center reference design is, what it includes, and explains how the benefits listed above are achieved.
A data center reference design acts as a starting point offering a project team several valuable benefits including:
• Facilitating and simplifying the planning phase
• Reducing time to create buildable designs
• Reducing risk, offering predictable performance and improved reliability of the data center once operational
This white paper from Server Technology outlines the current state of Data Center Diversity, and offers guidance for cutting through
the fog where it comes to how power and equipment densities vary within a data center and for planning how to handle the varying
densities at the data center rack.

The bar for success is rising in higher education. University leaders and IT administrators are aware of the compelling benefits of digital transformation overall—and artificial intelligence (AI) in particular. AI can amplify human capabilities by using machine learning, or deep learning, to convert the fast-growing and plentiful sources of data about all aspects of a university into actionable insights that drive better decisions. But when planning a transformational strategy, these leaders must prioritize operational continuity. It’s critical to protect the everyday activities of learning, research, and administration that rely on the IT infrastructure to consistently deliver data to its applications.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has already begun to improve targeting, segmentation, media buying and planning in the advertising industry. AI algorithms can extract complex patterns from vast numbers of data points, and in so doing, are able to self-correct and learn patterns. The revenue potential that improved personalization, segmentation and targeting that AI provides to marketers is huge.
At HERE Technologies, we are placing AI and machine learning at the center of our products and services. We see the opportunity in automated machine learning to enrich the targeting and effectiveness of mobile advertising campaigns in real time. But the outcome of implementing such technology depends on the quality of data being fed into it from the outset. AI wouldn’t be as helpful if it’s being used alongside questionable location data or audience data.
HERE’s location data provides a strong thread that can be woven throughout every stage of the media buying process, offering more context and
The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their next-generation datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are too beneficial to your business to ignore. That’s why flash is becoming the standard for new storage investments.
More than ever, businesses are considering a cloud solution for their enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployment over an on-premises system. Cloud technology appeals to these companies because updates and fixes occur automatically with little or no effort from internal IT staff, and because cloud-based solutions provide access to real-time data from anywhere. Employees want tools that make it easier for them to complete everyday tasks and make informed decisions that help the business grow.
Aberdeen’s research report, “Top Performers Know It’s Time to Migrate to Cloud ERP: Here’s Why and How,” uncovers the reasons successful companies are choosing cloud over on-premises ERP models. Download this SmartBite for a quick look at the report’s highlights.
