Blade Servers are self-contained computer servers, designed for high density. Whereas a standard rack-mount server can exist with (at least) a power cord and network cable, blade servers have many components removed for space, power and other considerations while still having all the functional components to be considered a computer.
The traditional data center model is like the old cable TV and music models, which forced you to buy and pay for all 189 channels and all ten songs, even if you only wanted a few. The evolved data center model, in contrast, is like the new TV and music models – you only buy the show or the song you want.
The case for a re-envisioned data center is being made every day, and at an increasingly urgent pace. Growing technology demands, transforming global economics, corporate efficiency initiatives, and required business agility are among the drivers making change not merely a strategy, but a prerequisite for survival.
This colocation buyer’s guide includes a checklist of important factors to consider before choosing a provider, along with buying criteria to help you make the best decision for your infrastructure needs.

Data center leaders that opt for basic PDUs because they cost less than intelligent PDUs are making a big mistake. The truth is intelligent PDUs offer a significantly higher return on investment (ROI). Learn why intelligent PDUs are the smart choice.
Some companies attempt to solve this by hiring a new manager or promoting someone up the ranks, but that only leads to another individual in charge with his or her own ideas of how best to manage facilities. The real problem goes unaddressed.
By leveraging Ciena’s state-of-the-art WaveLogic 3 Extreme chipset, Waveserver offers high capacity in an extremely compact footprint, with a web-scale operations toolkit and open programmability—all the essential ingredients to help DCI compete in the web-scale era.
In this white paper, we’ll explore the difference between two different approaches and highlight where and how dedicated servers can not only give you better performance, reliability, control and security, but can be just as attractive as cloud in terms of both flexibility and cost efficiency.
Raritan’s hybrid transfer switch offers surge protection, field replaceable fuses, and disaster recovery in case of a shorted load. They’re also energy efficient - consuming a mere 20W - and thereby produce less heat resulting in fewer issues during installation and day-to-day use.

In this white paper, Cloud Spectator reveals the results from a normalized comparison of performance between two cloud providers’ services, Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 and Internap AgileCLOUD. The analysis considered each provider’s IaaS functionality, price, and performance in typical cloud-hosted workloads.
This Technology Spotlight examines the issues that are driving organizations to replace older archive and backup-and-restore systems with business continuity and always-available solutions that can scale to handle extreme data growth while leveraging a cloudbased pricing model.
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 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.
