Keep Your Cool in the Data Center

Key measurements to include in your data center cooling strategy.

Carrie Higbie of network cabling systems and service provider Siemon recently contributed an excerpt to the Knowledge Network from her "Data Center E-book: Deploying, Managing and Securing an Efficient Physical Infrastructure."


In "Hosted, Outsourced, and Cloud Data Centers-Strategies and Considerations for Co-Location Tenants," Higbie discusses the customer benefits of hosted data centers, both of the outsourced and collocated varieties.


While associated with SMB customers in the past, Global 500 companies increasingly rely on outsourced data centers for hosting Web applications and cloud-based solutions such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). In addition to capital and employee savings potential, these data centers free up resources (both people and equipment) at a company's primary site for other applications.


Higbie provides clear explanations of the features of outsourced, collocated and cloud data center facilities and lists factors that tenants should consider when evaluating a hosted data center space, including physical security.
