This paper proposes standard terminology for categorizing the types of prefabricated modular data centers, defines and compares their key attributes, and provides a framework for choosing the best approach(es) based on business requirements.
In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come
at a capex premium.
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
In this white paper, we will look into:
• The changing face of the colocation buyer
• Industry structure, including mergers and acquisitions
• The Internet of Things and big data
• Edge computing
• Cloud computing and Internet Giants
• The impact of data center infrastructure management (DCIM)
• Data center design architectures
In today’s world of being “on” 24/7, data centers are at the core of business and viewed as the way to create competitive differentiation. Speed, efficiency, flexibility, and scale are now critical for winning the race to meet new connectivity and processing demands caused by the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data.
When comparing the architecture for Ceph and SolidFire, it is clear
that both are scale-out storage systems designed to use commodity
hardware, and the strengths of each make them complementary
solutions for datacenter design.

As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.
Over the last couple of years SD-WAN technology has matured into a mainstream solution. Yet, the
most appropriate migration path is not always clear. While there are many considerations to
balance during a migration, the enduring benefit of an SD-WAN architecture is simplification:
branch design, data center design, routing, edge platform choices, security choices, management.
To ensure an understanding of the fundamental concepts, let’s quickly discuss the architecture and components of SD-WAN,
and then move on to cover the best practices of various aspects of an SD-WAN migration
