Industry Perspectives: Intel, SwishData, Brightline

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. For your weekend reading, here’s a recap of this week’s columns:

Power Dense Data Centers Seek Thermal Controls – To address the increase in data center heat production is to achieve a more efficient thermal cooling infrastructure, writes Jeff Klaus of Intel Data Center Manager Solutions division.

Beyond Backup: Focus on Restoring Your Data – Too often, data protection is an afterthought, writes Jean-Paul Bergeaux of SwishData. Think beyond data protection as simply having backups, but also about how long data recovery takes.

Why SOC1/SSAE 16 is Still the King of the Hill – While SOC 2 has potential, SOC 1 remains one of the most important assurance tools for hosting providers, writes Chris Schellman of Brightline. Decision makers should recognize that data centers are often valid candidates for both SOC 1 and SOC 2 examinations.
