      Extending the Edge: New Thinking on Data Security

      brought to you by AFCOM

      Security, like most aspects of IT infrastructure, has historically been a siloed function. Focused on protecting data, applications, network connections, and with the advent of BYOD (bring your own device) policies, network endpoints, it is a practice that, for most companies, evolved in a reactive fashion – new technology acquired and implemented based on a specific need.

      How many robots does it take to run your data center?

      Data centers have gone though a number of transformations over the years, including a shift away from large mainframe computers, the adoption of server and storage virtualization, the deployment of "green IT" initiatives to reduce power consumption, and the emergence of "software-defined" technology that's underway.

      Startup proposes robotic data centers with no humans

      Web hosting company PayPerHost has revealed an early concept for fully autonomous robotic data centers that remove inefficient humans, and aim to reduce and reuse energy. PPH told DatacenterDynamics that it has “done some calculations with [a] HVAC professional, applied for two patents and one trademark, designed it, created a marketing video.” The company is looking for investors for its ’RoboNodes’ and hopes to build a prototype.

      How a Simple Idea Could Make Data Centers 25 Percent More Efficient

      Computer scientists figured out a way to improve the efficiency of data centers by 25 percent. The trick? They tweaked operating systems so the computers powering them would share processing power. While in an idle state, these systems are able to perform extra tasks without being bogged down when they are needed for Web-based tasks.

    7. How Server Power Supplies are Wasting Your Money

      How Server Power Supplies are Wasting Your Money

      Overprovisioning, viewed in data center design and management as something between a best practice and a necessary evil, has been built into the industry’s collective psyche because of its core mission to maintain uptime, at all costs. If a data center team spends more than it really has to, it needs to improve efficiency, but if a data center goes down, somebody’s failed to do their job.

    8. Document & Change (D&C) is the next Big Data thing

      Today's big trend/fad/money-making scheme is building the Internet of Things (IoT) and feeding the wealth of data from a gazillion little sensors into big data analytics to monitor things and spot trends, such as when a particular widget (part, motor) wears out and needs to be replaced, preferably in a proactive (before it breaks) fashion.
