3 Trends in Maintaining the Digital Data Centre
Friday 21 September 2018
Today’s emerging technologies not only rely on, but in many ways transform, underlying IT infrastructure, making it ever more complex. Gartner predicts 90% of organizations will go hybrid by 2020. How can these systems be maintained so they will function at peak performance with less investment of time and resources? Here are three trends coming to bear on the problem:
1. Software-defined everything. The software-defined data center is becoming a must in supporting digital transformation. In its virtualized infrastructure lies a business-centric (as opposed to component-centric) approach and the ability to combine and manage new and old hardware, public and private cloud, and hosted, on-premises, and co-located components, while supporting any workload through a single, highly automated platform.
2. Next generation equipment monitoring. Machine learning and AI have arrived. Services like ParkView use advanced technologies to proactively detect faults and automate trouble ticket creation, so alarms never fall on deaf (human) ears. Predictive maintenance not only increases uptime but makes support simpler to manage.
3. Smart outsourcing. With the ongoing talent crunch, taking advantage of outside resources is vital. needs to be formulated with business interests in mind. Upkeep of storage, server, and networking equipment is a great place to integrate third party solutions and expertise.
