The versatile micro data center

Micro data centers differentiate themselves from other prefabricated designs with their ability to pack a lot into a very small environment. For example, one of these data centers can include 20 servers that harness virtualization technology, switches that take up only one or two rack units, cooling and a UPS system. Need more than that? Just add another box. This method is quick to deploy, highly scalable and creates a uniform design so technology support knows exactly what’s going on.

Wireless sensors, DCIM drive holistic cooling optimization

Growing complexity in the today’s data centers has increased the risk of combining power, cooling, racks, cabling and management components to run an efficient facility due to the shortage of essential skills needed to design and integrate them.

Smart organizations therefore have turned to tightly integrated, aisle-based physical infrastructure modules, or PODs, along with non-containerized integrated infrastructure solutions to optimize the use of power, space and cooling capacity while simplifying specification, design, validation, procurement and installation.

Best Practices for Designing Your Physical Security Infrastructure System

One of the most critical aspects of designing a data center is the physical security infrastructure system. Here are five best practices for ensuring that it is effective and compliant: Physical security is much like information security in that it should be viewed in layers. For example, access control systems act as the primary keys to the castle and should use methods that cannot be shared, such as biometric access.
