BLOOMFIELD, MI, July 14, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ — The importance of experience and the role of new technologies has dramatically increased the scope of the modern data center, and Logicalis is at the fore front of these advancements for the future of data centers.
Logicalis is introducing new, dynamic data center environments consisting of pools of high-performing computing resources that can be centrally-managed, readily-automated and efficiently maintained. Security and compliance are built in, instead of bolted on.
"Designing and implementing a state-of-the-art data center today requires experience across multiple disciplines, including networks, servers, storage and applications," Eric Linxweiler, SVP Solution Services, Logicalis said. "Logicalis is one of a very few IT solutions providers with in-depth, hands-on experience in all areas."
With the incentives of new technologies pulling, and the risks of downtime and security breaches pushing, CIOs find themselves standing at the brink between the old and the new. Bridging that gap requires an entirely new approach to the data center.
"More than just isolated technologies advancing in their own silos within the data center, the functional separation that existed between server, storage networking, communications, and power technologies is disappearing," continued, Linxweiler. "A new, holistic, approach to data centers is emerging that treats the data center functions as if they were a single, dynamic environment that needs to be addressed and managed in its entirety."
Logicalis highlights the unique benefits of its new Data Center RevITalization solutions:
– Lower costs by consolidating and virtualizing servers, storage, branch office infrastructure and physical facilities.
– Improved responsiveness by provisioning applications and infrastructure from shared pools of computing, storage and network resources.
– Optimized asset utilization by provisioning only the amount of virtualized resources required for the job.
– Improved resilience with built-in, high availability security and business continuance capabilities.
– Secure, accelerated application and data access from anywhere, at any time, to improve the customer experience and boost employee productivity.
In addition to the technological advances provided by the Data Center RevITalization, increased energy efficiency and environmental benefits can also be expected. Cooling accounts for as much as 40 percent of the cost of powering a typical data center for a midsize data center (around 2,500 square feet), and it can cost more than $200,000 a year just to maintain an acceptable temperature. Modern data centers have been able to trim cooling costs nearly 30 percent by installing updated HVAC systems – including computer room air conditioning (CRAC) and in-row cooling technologies, as well as consolidating devices, rationalizing floor space, and taking other measures. This is just one way organizations are identifying savings and realizing the benefits of the new data center.
