Consolidate Datacenters – Carefully
There are three steps to successful consolidation of datacenters.
Steve Cronin, writing at FCW, points to the need to consolidate datacenters in accordance with the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative that began in 2010. The deadline for the initiative was November, 2015. But consolidating – and doing so carefully — remains “incredibly important,” he writes.
To do so successfully, he writes, decision makers must plan carefully. They should “plan for and measure savings, enhanced reliability and funding.”
These planners, he writes, also should keep an eye on changing cooling needs. Finally, they should carefully plan datacenters that must be located in inhospitable areas.
Earlier this month, Upsite Technologies introduced the EnergyLok EMS 300 Environmental Monitoring System. It is designed to provide a high level of data on datacenter activities.
