States Take Advantage of New Data Center Technology

As some state organizations take a look at what to do with their older data center infrastructures; improving performance, efficiency and trying to predict the future on where the industry is going are among their top priorities.  Huge capital expense that would not get these organizations at least through a couple of years without having to go back to their respect boards for more money, has these public agencies looking at the newer technologies of modular design, hyperconvergence, virtualization and cloud computing.  Doing more with less resources and still increase data center performance is a top decision making factor when considering what these organization’s infrastructures will look like in the future.

For example, the Topeka and Shawnee County (Kan.) Public Library chose the cutting – edge technology of hyperconvergence to upgrade the performance of certain daily functions that were getting bogged down every day. Hyperconvergence is a type of  infrastructure system with  software-centric architecture that tightly integrates resources for compute, storage, networking, virtualization and other technologies from scratch in a hardware box that is supported by a single vendor.  This turnkey solution will offer greater efficiencies than upgrading  individual components  within the system over the long term.

In Connecticut when the state’s data center maxed out its’ cooling capacity, they opted for setting up a new modular design data center that would meet their long-term needs.  Read what other states are doing in the full article here.


Considerations in Building Edge Data Centers

Is your company in the planning stages of building a data center that is closer to the “edge” of the internet and away from traditional hubs?  Are you being overwhelmed by the amount of information out there from modular data center competitors with rhetoric and sales fluff?  There are many considerations in building an edge data center such as space constraints, the need to support multiple generations of hardware and bandwidth standards as you look to meet your  current and your future data center needs without excessive upfront capital and operational expenses.


Other considerations along the way are long term cable management and the integration of an automated asset management solution to monitor and track changes to the physical network or cable infrastructure should cords be added or removed over time are critical parts to the decision making process.  In edge computing environments reliability, stability and longevity is everything.  Edge Misson Critical Systems (MCS) is the total solutions provider for cutting through all the noise saving you time, money and frustration serving as a one-stop-shop for modular data center projects and speaking a language that everyone can understand with highly credentialed and industry recognized talent.  We offer a totally engineered, PE-stamped modular data center specifically designed for the edge network applications where customers require N+1 and N+2 redundancy, excellent power density and highly efficient cost of ownership.  Bring to market a customized data center or a preconfigured modular data center solution to meet your organization’s needs.
