TCO Analysis of a Traditional Data Center vs. a Scalable, Containerized Data Center
Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a total cost of ownership (TCO) savings of 30

1010 data column oriented  Analysis of a Traditional Data Center vs. a Scalable, Containerized Data Center Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a total cost of ownership (TCO) savings of 30% compared with traditional, built-out data center power and cooling infrastructure. Avoiding overbuilt capacity and scaling the design over time contributes to a significant percentage of the overall savings. This white paper provides a quantitative TCO analysis of the

Data Masking: Strengthening Data Privacy and Security


Many business activities require access to real production data, but there are just as many that don’t. Data masking secures enterprise data by eliminating sensitive information, while maintaining data realism and integrity. Many Fortune 500 companies have already integrated data masking technology into their payment card industry (PCI) data security standard (DSS) and other compliance programs—and so can you.

Data Management and Analysis


From a business perspective, the role of data management and analysis is crucial. It is not only a resource for gathering new stores of static information; it is also a resource for acquiring knowledge and supporting the decisions companies need to make in all aspects of economic ventures, including mergers and acquisitions (M&As).

For organizational growth, all requirements and opportunities must be accurately communicated throughout the value chain. All users—from end users to data professionals—must have the most accurate data tools and systems in place to efficiently carry out their daily tasks. Data generation development, data quality, document and content management, and data security management are all examples of data-related functions that provide information in a logical and precise manner.

Data Center Projects: Advantages of Using a Reference Design


It is no longer practical or cost-effective to completely engineer all aspects of a unique data center. Re-use of proven, documented subsystems or complete designs is a best practice for both new data centers and for upgrades to existing data centers. Adopting a well-conceived reference design can have a positive impact on both the project itself, as well as on the operation of the data center over its lifetime. Reference designs simplify and shorten the planning and implementation process and reduce downtime risks once up and running. In this paper reference designs are defined and their benefits are explained.

Types of Prefabricated Modular Data Centers


Data center systems or subsystems that are pre-assembled in a factory are often described with terms like prefabricated, containerized, modular, skid-based, pod-based, mobile, portable, self-contained, all-in-one, and more. There are, however, important distinctions between the various types of factory-built building blocks on the market. This paper proposes standard terminology for categorizing the types of prefabricated modular data centers, defines and compares their key attributes, and provides a framework for choosing the best approach(es) based on business requirements.
