Best Practices

Best Practice is a management idea which asserts that there is a technique, method, process, activity, incentive or reward that is more effective at delivering a particular outcome than any other technique, method, process, etc. The idea is that with proper processes, checks, and testing, a project can be rolled out and completed with fewer problems and unforeseen complications.

White Paper Published By: CDW - APC     Published Date: Apr 07, 2016
Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers, including flexibility, improved predictability, and faster speed of deployment. Cost , however, is sometimes stated as a barrier to deploying these designs. In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come at a capex premium . The analysis was completed and validated with Romonet’s Cloud-based Analytics Platform, a vendor-neutral industry resource.

White Paper Published By: CDW - NetApp     Published Date: Apr 07, 2016
A critical step in moving from a shared virtualized environment toward a private cloud is the transition from infrastructure optimization to service optimization. NetApp’s design approach, technologies, and ecosystem integration build upon our storage efficiencies to deliver service-level efficiencies using centralized, policy-based management and automation. With NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, an efficient service-oriented approach can be implemented that enables storage provisioning, data protection, and operational processes to be integrated and automated. As a result, enterprises can meet workload service-level requirements while greatly reducing management costs and improving business agility.

IT infrastructure is no longer just supporting the business; it is the business enabler. Infrastructure must support constant business demands for new applications and services with limited budgets and resources. Yet there is limited time to constantly evaluate and integrate hardware, software and networking solutions to meet continuously evolving requirements. Create an automated, dynamic infrastructure that adapts to your business demands with the VCE VxRail™ Appliance.

Curves® and Jenny Craig® operate 7,000 Curves clubs and franchises globally and 400 Jenny Craig locations supported by IT service desks in California, Texas, and Australia. The two organizations combined to form Curves Jenny Craig in November 2013. Outdated systems, known internally as “the black hole,” plagued Jenny Craig with inefficient processes and created a lack of accountability. For example, records could not be categorized or prioritized properly, tracked by date or owner, and they could be intentionally hidden in an ambiguous status. Without visibility, Jenny Craig had no way to quantify the impact of their customer service. Mary Carter, manager of IT service, summed it up, “We had no reporting prior Cherwell Service Management.” Curves was in even worse shape as they logged tickets in an Excel® spreadsheet.

White Paper Published By: Oracle Hardware     Published Date: Apr 05, 2016
As more hardware, devices, apps, and tools are deployed to support growth, the infrastructure becomes increasingly difficult to integrate, manage and support. The concept of converged infrastructure was seen as the answer to this problem. However, when bringing together disparate components not deeply integrated or designed to work together, this "solution" sapped efficiency and added more complexity. Plus, there was no convenient public cloud option. Explore how Oracle Engineered Systems are designed to overcome the limitations of traditional converged infrastructure solutions.

While the cloud can be a disruptive force, this global survey, conducted by Harvard Business Review and sponsored by Oracle, shows it is no longer a divisive one. The cloud is emerging as a unifying force that’s forging tighter collaboration between business and IT managers to drive innovation. The survey debunks three myths around implementing a public and/or private cloud strategy, including whether corporate systems need public cloud app data and how aligned IT and business are when it comes to the cloud.

Open Compute has had a significant impact on the thinking about data center design. Until now, the focus has been on systems at the rack level, leaving unanswered questions about the power infrastructure upstream of the rack. In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility. We introduce simplified reference designs that support OCP and provide a capital cost analysis to compare traditional and OCP-based designs. We also present an online TradeOff Tool that allows data center decision makers to better understand the cost differences and cost drivers to various architectures.

Poor rack cable management has proven to many data center operators to be a source of downtime and frustration during moves, adds and changes. It can also lead to data transmission errors, safety hazards, poor cooling efficiency, and a negative overall look and feel of the data center. This paper discuses the benefits of effective rack cable management, provides guidance for cable management within IT racks including high density and networking IT racks, which will improve cable traceability and troubleshooting time while reducing the risk of human error.

Raising IT inlet temperatures is a common recommendation given to data center operators as a strategy to improve data center efficiency. While it is true that raising the temperature does result in more economizer hours, it does not always have a positive impact on the data center overall. In this paper, we provide a cost (capex & energy) analysis of a data center to demonstrate the importance of evaluating the data center holistically, inclusive of the IT equipment energy. The impact of raising temperatures on server failures is also discussed.
