  • Guide to Overcoming Data Center Networking Challenges
    Guide to Overcoming Data Center Networking Challenges Tara Kennedy – Product Marketing Manager at FNT Software Recorded: Mar 27 2018 20 mins
    Data Center operators are no strangers to dealing with the pressures of a changing environment. New technologies, applications and architectures will always arise to shake things up. It’s how they respond that will differentiate those that flourish and prosper from those whose ongoing viability will be jeopardized. Today’s changes are no exception. The explosive growth in network traffic - both within and between data centers - will reach unprecedented levels. Cloud-based services and distributed databases and functions will push networks to their limits. Applications and architectures are increasingly dependent on effective network design and performance to meet service level goals. Connectivity infrastructure will be tested, as will MTDC and hosting providers’ ability to innovate and invest. This trend is shining the spotlight on data center operators, especially colocation companies, who need good visibility, control and processes to deal with fast growing, complex and often dynamic networks.

    Strategies exist that data centers and colocation providers can employ to thrive in this kinetic environment. These strategies revolve around connectivity. New connectivity products and services, such as Enterprise Connectivity, Disaster Recovery and Ecosystem Peering, are fast finding their way into providers’ service portfolios. While exciting, efficient network operation and quality service are required to successfully offer these new products. A central database is the key, as that is the cornerstone for enabling the planning, managing and integration of used resources in the data center and the network infrastructure. Learn how to use such a database to standardize infrastructures, ensure efficient change processes and secure maintenance and operation of your MTDC or colocation center.

    Putting the customer center-stage when defining the service portfolio is crucial in order to stay successful in a highly competitive market.

    In this interview, service management expert Patrick Büch explains how to tackle today’s challenges and how to increase an organization’s flexibility and agility in terms of how services are offered to the customer.

  • How to unleash hidden potentials in your service organization
    How to unleash hidden potentials in your service organization Patrick Büch; Business Line Manager Recorded: Nov 24 2016 39 mins
    The times where IT executives have traditionally been focused on cost control and managing the day-to-day running of IT are eventually gone. CIOs are challenged in refocus their priorities towards business initiatives and revenue growth. This can be a demanding task as many IT organizations still act in a re-active manner and follow a classic build-to-order approach.

    This must be changed and service management is the key to success. However just establishing an service organization is not enough. An outside-in perspective is necessary, looking at the organization from the customer’s viewpoint and using this perspective to design new services that actually provide value to business.

    This webinar examines the necessary changes in service organizations and how these will unleash hidden potentials like for example a significant reduction in costs.

  • Data Center Management - Why It's Time to Automate
    Data Center Management - Why It's Time to Automate Andrè Grossmann (R&M), Claudia Lehmann (FNT) Recorded: Aug 18 2016 28 mins
    “Internet of computers” + “Internet of things” + “Industry 4.0” = “Internet of Everything.” That means huge growth in the volume of data that has to be transmitted, processed, and stored. To accommodate this growth, automated data center management systems are essential for provisioning and management of a large number of assets and connections. All activities and changes must be logged for later reference and auditing. Unauthorized changes should automatically generate alarms, thus enabling rapid fault location and correction. To optimize data center infrastructure operation and for precise capacity planning, the system needs to provide tailored reports and analysis. The combination of R&MinteliPhy expertise and FNT technology delivers unique transparency and control in the data center.
