Data Center Hybrid Solution©. Element 3, Computer Hardware

ReqAnalysis

Good Morning! This week we will post the content from Mark Evanko’s presentation outlining the 16 Elements one should consider in order to develop a complete and appropriate Data Center solution. Mark’s theory is simple, if anyone who needs to plan the next steps or creation of a data center solution looks carefully at these 16 items, based on their specific needs and requirements, this system can act as a roadmap to pinpoint a proper solution. BRUNS-PAK can of course help!

So this week lets look at Element #3, Computer Hardware.

3. Computer Hardware

A.Higher Efficiency

B.”Flash” storage announcements

C.Virtualization

D.High performance computing impacts – All critical?

E.Scalability/Modularity/Flexibility

F.Water cooled to the chiller

 

Here is the full list of 16 Elements we will be reviewing one by one over the next weeks:
