70% of data center outages are directly attributable to human error according to the Uptime Institute’s analysis of their “abnormal incident” reporting (AIR) database1. This figure highlights the critical importance of having an effective operations and maintenance (O&M) program. This paper describes unique management principles and provides a comprehensive, high-level overview of the necessary program elements for operating a mission critical facility efficiently and reliably throughout its life cycle. Practical management tips and advice are also given.

The first event in the Partnering with Certainy Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." Trends like IoT are driving customer experience expectations in a way that demands resiliency in local edge environments. As a result, we’re seeing a rise of edge computing (compute power coming out of the cloud and into the access layer). Customer demands manifest themselves differently based on things like company size and segment. For example, a retail customer’s business imperatives might look different from a doctor’s office. But one thing remains constant: A standardized, redundant, and repeatable physical infrastructure can protect the availability of these now-critical access-layer IT assets. APC by Schneider Electric has: The solutions you need to deliver a standardized, redundant, & repeatable infrastructure to your customers The tools you need to configure them, The alliances & certifications you trust & rely on, The program to make it profitable. Fill out your information and click "Register" to watch the kick off our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, “Customer Demands at the Edge: Always On, Always Connected.” This webinar originally aired on October 5th, 2017.

Part 2 in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." In our last webinar, we discussed how trends & technologies like IoT and its many applications have helped drive an Always On, Always Connected mentality that has completely evolved customer experience standards. These demands are driving a need for resiliency in local edge environments, meaning compute & storage capacity is now coming back on premise for many applications – especially in industries like Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education. In other words, this highly distributed access layer is now becoming a compute layer – one that is mission-critical to delivering a flawless (or at least acceptable) customer experience. These environments are often make-shift wiring closets (janitor’s closets, back rooms, etc.) with no dedicated IT staff per each location. More than ever before, Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education customers are turning to solution providers to be that “dedicated IT staff” to find and fix problems before they start, so that the customer (or patient, or student) experience they’re working to provide remains a good one.

Part 3 in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." As distributed edge environments become more critical, physical security becomes more important. Nobody would leave their data center wide open for anyone to enter, but that’s exactly how many organizations treat their edge computing sites. Often, they consist of a rack or two of gear in a non-dedicated location, perhaps a janitor’s closet, with little to no physical security. Fill out your information and click "Register" to watch the third event in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, “Customer Demands at the Edge: Protect me from Downtime!” This webinar originally aired on November 9th, 2017. In this webinar, we discuss physical security best practices, including environmental issues such as temperature and humidity monitoring. We also update partners on the physical security features of the latest APC racks and the NetBotz line of security and environmental appliances, cameras and sensors.

Use of cloud computing by enterprise companiesis growing rapidly. A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining on-premise, at the “Edge”. In this paper, we describe and critique the common physical infrastructure practices seen today, propose a method of analyzing the resiliency needed, and discuss best practices that will ensure employees remain connected to their business critical applications.

In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility. We introduce simplified reference designs that support OCP and provide a capital cost analysis to compare traditional and OCP-based designs. We also present an online TradeOff Tool that allows data center decision makers to better understand the cost differences and cost drivers to various architectures.

In considering the four principal options of data center modernization, keep in mind that each option need not be treated as a separate and distinct approach. Data center stakeholders may want to combine options in order to better accommodate a particular migration timeline. Or cautious executives may want to simply dabble with the outsourcing option by piloting only a few select applications while still maintaining a core corporate data center. The key critical success factor is the recognition that data center modernization is not a one-time fi x, but rather a critical piece of an ongoing strategy to better service customers.

Enterprises are increasingly opening up their networks to a greater constituency of remote users, but they often do not take into consideration the protection of user identity as a critical component of their strategy. The mobile workforce can now work productively from a remote location such as a home office, the airport, a hotel, or a customer site.

Reputation systems add a critical first line of advanced protection to help organizations accurately detect and block all types of threats to their messaging, web, and network environments.  In simplest terms, deploying a reputation service at the network edge is analogous to having a peephole in the front door of your house.  You let in people you know and trust, question the ones you don’t know and shun the ones who look suspicious.  Just by taking these simple measures you reduce your risk.

Office 365 has eclipsed all other cloud applications to emerge as the most widely used enterprise cloud service by user count. It’s easy to understand why: With Office 365, organizations no longer have to pay for hardware or resources to manage software in their own data centers, and their users always have the latest versions of applications. But Office 365 comes with significant security concerns, especially as organizations store more and more sensitive and business-critical data there. One study reports that virtually every organization experiences at least one cloud-based threat each month — and the average has soared to nearly 6 incidents every week. What can organizations do to protect their Office 365 environments? Read the white paper to learn.

Facing increasing customer demands for equipment uptime and rapid service response, many companies servicing critical equipment and machinery are turning to on-customer-site spare parts inventory strategies. To maximize the benefits of this approach, leading companies are 'reverse engineering' their service chains to build restocking plans and manage performance based on parts consumption, not distribution, patterns.
