Amazon, Server Prices, and Cloud Competition Accumulation

July 17, 2013

With the Rackspace’s announcement this month that they were getting involved with some of CERN’s cloud computing and the news of IBM acquiring SoftLayer last month, Amazon’s HPC instances may be facing some competition in the not so distant future. To battle that impending competition, Amazon reportedly dropped their price to rent their dedicated servers, machines that operate solely for one institution. Read more…

Rackspace CTO Responds to Amazon Price Drop

July 17, 2013

A public cloud setup and a hybrid cloud one are incompatible for comparison, according to Rackspace Chief Technology Officer John Engates. However, when Amazon announces a cost reduction that could seemingly cut into Rackspace’s business, and has incidentally has ended up dropping the Rackspace stock by 8.5 percent, there exists a necessity to shed light on those differences.

Why IT Must Have an Influential Role in Strategic Decisions About Sustainability

In this era, expansion in digital infrastructure capacity is inevitable. Parallel to this, climate change consciousness is also rising, making sustainability a mandatory part of the organization’s functioning. As computing workloads such as AI and HPC continue to surge, so does the energy consumption, posing environmental woes. IT departments within organizations have a crucial role in combating this challenge. They can significantly drive sustainable practices by influencing newer technologies and process adoption that aid in mitigating the effects of climate change.

While buying more sustainable IT solutions is an option, partnering with IT solutions providers, such and Lenovo and Intel, who are committed to sustainability and aiding customers in executing sustainability strategies is likely to be more impactful.

Learn how Lenovo and Intel, through their partnership, are strongly positioned to address this need with their innovations driving energy efficiency and environmental stewardship.

How Direct Liquid Cooling Improves Data Center Energy Efficiency

Data centers are experiencing increasing power consumption, space constraints and cooling demands due to the unprecedented computing power required by today’s chips and servers. HVAC cooling systems consume approximately 40% of a data center’s electricity. These systems traditionally use air conditioning, air handling and fans to cool the data center facility and IT equipment, ultimately resulting in high energy consumption and high carbon emissions. Data centers are moving to direct liquid cooled (DLC) systems to improve cooling efficiency thus lowering their PUE, operating expenses (OPEX) and carbon footprint.

This paper describes how CoolIT Systems (CoolIT) meets the need for improved energy efficiency in data centers and includes case studies that show how CoolIT’s DLC solutions improve energy efficiency, increase rack density, lower OPEX, and enable sustainability programs. CoolIT is the global market and innovation leader in scalable DLC solutions for the world’s most demanding computing environments. CoolIT’s end-to-end solutions meet the rising demand in cooling and the rising demand for energy efficiency.
