  • The computing industry is changing in dramatic new ways at break-neck speeds. Whereas in years past computing capacity was a simple function of how much floorspace had been created that was filled with servers, networks and storage, today there are a wide range of platform choices - some that require no in-house floorspace. In-house data centers, co-location facilities and cloud-services are the three new buckets of capacity. That said, most organizations still house the majority of computing services in the most traditional way, via data centers that they own and operate. But make no mistake, there is a slow but steady shift to move greater workloads to co-location and cloud-based services.

  • CANONSBURG, Pa., May 2, 2018 - Starline is enabling organizations to further maximize their energy management and efficiency with the latest enhancements to the Critical Power Monitor (CPM) platform. This revenue-grade power monitoring device proactively monitors power usage and distribution in the data center environment. Two new enhancements are being unveiled for this product line, including temperature sensors for busway end feed terminal lugs and a direct current voltage version of the product for Vdc installations.
  • The DCA was set up in 2010 following consultation between industry leaders the DTI, RDA and EU Commission. The aim was to create a trade association with a not for profit constitution to represent the interests of data centre sector which needed to be completely inclusive, independent and vendor natural.

    We need to stop defining ourselves by what we do We tend to think about work in terms of “jobs”. You are a programmer, a doctor, a consultant, or a lawyer. When we introduce ourselves, convention dictates we talk about our jobs rather than who we are. The shorthand of our titles allows us to... Read More

    When we published our selection of cloud predictions last year, most predicted container orchestrator Kubernetes to consolidate its stranglehold over the container space and, correspondingly, modern cloud infrastructure.

    Last November, one of the most extensive customer surveys bore this prediction out. In its study of thousands of companies, cloud and infrastructure monitoring company Datadog found 45 percent of its customers were using Kubernetes. And if that wasn't evidence enough, just reflect on VMware's announcement in March that it plans to transition its enterprise virtualisation platform to a system that runs and runs on Kubernetes. In reality, Kubernetes' centrality to cloud was put beyond doubt just four weeks after we published last year's roundup. In January, IBM steamrollered into 2019 with a $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat that saw the company's popular Kubernetes implementation OpenShift integrated into IBM's new multi-cloud strategy.

    It is in this context that most of this year's experts consulted their cloud crystal balls. Rackspace's Lee James predicts 2020 to be a year of stiff competition between enterprise IT giants jostling to deliver a Kubernetes solution that dovetails with customers' multi-cloud goals. On the other hand, Stephan Fabel of Canonical says end-users will start to understand the limitations of Kubernetes, and accordingly, utilise it more strategically. Lastly, Pivotal's Michael Cote expects companies to use this experience to establish a singular, overall Kubernetes strategy.

    Mid-December is upon us, which means it’s time for – you guessed it – our yearly data centre predictions roundup.

    As usual, we’ve handpicked four industry experts, all of whom have kindly consulted their crystal balls to serve up some digestible summaries of what lies ahead for the data centre in 2020.

    Without question, the chief takeaway from this year’s roundup is the centrality of sustainability.

    True, the environmental impact of IT has been scrutinised for several years now, but whereas once the interrogation was audible, now it is deafening. This is a consequence of the broader elevation of the issue around the globe, reinforced by the Greta Effect and the hellish wildfires that tore through the Amazon in November.
