The Industry Perspectives channel at Data Center Knowledge highlights thought leadership in the data center arena, providing industry professionals with the opportunity to share their insight and expertise. Here’s a recap of this week’s Perspectives:
- Going Beyond PUE for Data Center Efficiency – Data center efficiencies can be attained through increasing compute densities, creating cold aisle containment systems or more effective use of outside air, but the key component over time is to have an easily understood metric to gauge data center efficiency, and how much improvement is taking place, according to Nitin Mishra of NetMagic.
- Going Beyond PUE for Data Center Efficiency, Part II – If the organization can reduce the IT load, it will reduce the overall power required for the data center, writes Nitin Mishra of NetMagic.
- Virtual Visibility: Why You Need X-Ray Vision to Back Up VMs – All of that new-found agility that makes the virtual machine teams ninja-like in their ability to deliver IT as a service comes with a back-end challenge: back-up, says Sean Regan of Symantec.
