Covering the full gamut of data infrastructure news and insights, we enjoy pontificating about technology and industry shifts in our blog. Whether it’s about the intricate details of structured cabling to abstract observations about quantum computing, you’ll discover it here in the instor data infrastructure blog.
The role of data centers in the everyday operations of organizations is growing exponentially. So too is the need for absolutely optimum performance.
It’s a rare day in the data infrastructure industry when you’re not hearing about yet another sophisticated strategy developed by hackers to break into critical systems.
In business today, it can sometimes be good to shake things up a bit. But not when it comes to your data centers. One big earthquake could essentially shake a company off its foundations.
Time is money. And, when it comes to data center builds, we’re talking a lot of money. For colocation centers that are onboarding new tenants, every extra day it takes for a new renter to be fully moved in usually results in a highly painful loss of revenue. The tenants feel the pain as well. These delays can negatively impact their expansion requirements, slow down new product releases, restrict their scalability, and create an unwelcome traffic jam of internal project delays. When it comes to data centers, time isn’t just money, it’s solid gold! For multi-tenant facilities, one of the greatest logjams is waiting on factory-built cages to be available and shipped. This is why so many...
The lifeline of any high-performance data center is its network and structured cabling systems. If yours ends up getting tied up in knots, it can create maintenance nightmares and even restrict your ability to expand or migrate.
The convergence of record-breaking demand for data center infrastructure and the global impact of major supply chain disruptions has created the perfect storm.
There are so many varying options of data center strategies including on-prem, hyperscale, edge, cloud and colocation. Most companies are now making their move.
It all began as any other regular flight. It ended up as an identity crisis. I am someone who in normal times flies on average about 250,000 miles a year. I pride myself on being a minimalist traveler, and I consider it a challenge each trip to see how light I can pack. This particular plane took off, and as I often do, I turned my iPad on and started reading a book. About halfway through the flight, I used my credit card to purchase another flight, and then I wanted a little distraction, so I watched a movie. Five hours later, we land and I’m taking a phone call as we were deplaning, which meant I was not focused. Since I don't have any checked-in luggage, I’m moving quickly. I hop onto...
The merits of moving your data infrastructure to the cloud are long and well established. Yet, before you do, you should be aware of this:
There is a dark side of the cloud.
What will living on the edge be like? As in, living in the world of edge computing? The short answer is it will be much of the same. Just better. First of all, the market comes up with these terminologies that continue to confuse the industry. Edge computing is nothing other than distributed computing whereby you're bringing computing closer to the user. Why you’re doing this is so the user is able to access information quicker in an edge computing environment than they were before. This is because we live in a world of milliseconds. The architecture that existed before and would be practiced today is between 15 to 30 millisecond response time. That’s granted you've got fast enough...
