Servers occupy a place in computing similar to that occupied by minicomputers in the past, which they have largely replaced. The typical server is a computer system that operates continuously on a network and waits for requests for services from other computers on the network. Many servers are dedicated to this role, but some may also be used simultaneously for other purposes, particularly when the demands placed upon them as servers are modest.
Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) has evolved to guide the management of data center assets, their environment, and overall operations. In this paper, we discuss how Raritan’s DCIM software can be integrated with existing ITSM software to increase efficiency and reliability.

This paper will provide guidance for cutting through the fog where it comes to how power and equipment densities vary within a data center and for planning how to handle the varying densities at the data center rack.
This paper discusses making realistic improvements to power, cooling, racks, physical security, monitoring, and lighting.
The focus of this paper is on small server rooms and branch offices
with up to 10kW of IT load.
This white paper presents and compares the effectiveness of two types of airflow containment systems (legacy and modular), the resultant impact on IT temperatures, the energy consumption and associated operational costs for the data center, and the projected return on investment (ROI) for implementing the containment systems.
This white paper will “follow the money” and show where the power is being used within your data center facility, along with the effects of changes like increasing the overall temperature within your data center.
Understanding new data center developments and how they can help you better serve your end users and driver operational efficiencies is an essential step in identifying the right colocation provider, so read this whitepaper today.
Virtualization caused a major cultural shift in IT. By enabling physical assets to be better utilized, IT teams realized that they could deliver systems to their customers in a more timely manner, thereby delivering better value. In this webinar you will learn what is NetOps and how is it different from DevOps.
CIOs are on a constant quest to understand what infrastructure will provide the best fit, at the lowest risk and cost. In today’s evolving data center, defining the proper use of data center assets, and how cloud-based platforms may or may not fit into the mix is critical to business success. With the abundance of cloud offerings in the market place, physical infrastructure is no longer an enterprise IT requirement. Cloud has established itself as an excellent option for infrastructure outsourcing.
