Re: Overcoming Consolidation Resistance - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/245...
"Data Center consolidation can be a huge political issue for organizations. By allowing consolidation to happen, some in the organization (namely the IT group) might feel like their 'power' is slipping away. If you can overcome the political issues, consolidation brings a lot of value to the business." - Eric D. Brown

Re: Has Green IT Faded From the Spotlight? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/240...
"Agreed. We still live under the mantra of 'do more with less'...in order to 'do more', most IT professionals do just what they have to do and not much more." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Has Green IT Faded From the Spotlight? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/240...
"I have begun to make decisions based on companies being green as well, but I don't think that comes into the mind of many corporations. We as individuals can make those decisions to pay a little more if we need to but the CIO's budget doesn't necessarily allow them to do the same." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Addressing the Data Center Skills Gap - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/243...
"I think closing the skills gap for the data center (or any aspect of business) comes down to a few things. First, you've got to have good people working for you (or hire good people). Then, you've got to ensure that they are training appropriately. Then, you've got to keep those people engaged." - Eric D. Brown

"They are separate issues in my book" - Eric D. Brown

"Nice pointer Chris. I always forget about the value of Google Trends." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Growing Data Centers, Decreasing Budgets - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/242...
"That could be the issue at play here Joel. We've seen it before and I'm sure we'll see it again." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Growing Data Centers, Decreasing Budgets - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/242...
"So true :)" - Eric D. Brown
Re: Has Green IT Faded From the Spotlight? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/240...
"I think many have said this already, but the CIO's deciding factor for a new product or service has very little to do with 'green IT' and more to do with whether than service/product can deliver what they need to reach their goals. If one of their goals is to reduce their reliance on energy, then green IT systems will be at the forefront of the CIO's mind...otherwise they won't be." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Modeling the Data Center’s Total Cost of Ownership - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/236...
"Me too. I've been working with some Bayesian classification algorithms for sentiment analysis and since then have become very enamored with Bayesian approaches. Applying these approaches to the analysis and management of the data center is very interesting to me..I'm looking forward to seeing more work in this area." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Creating the Agile Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/237...
"Completely agree Pete. In all parts of business, if you can build a culture of adaptability and flexibility, you're organization has the potential to run circles around your competitors." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Using Agile Methodologies to Build and Manage the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/239...
"This is interesting. I've argued for years that agile is something that should be adopted outside of the 'development' world." - Eric D. Brown

Re: Modeling the Data Center’s Total Cost of Ownership - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/236...
"No doubt. I'm skeptical as well, but I like the idea. Even if 80% accurate, you have a good 'feel' for what the data center is doing and will do based on certain configurations, which - when added to your instinct and experience - should help manage the data center more effectively." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Faster Networks for the Internet of Things - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/234...
"Agreed. I think this particular technology may help people see the value of the on-site data center. If you can remove network/bandwidth bottlenecks, you might be able to do 'more' within the data center." - Eric D. Brown
Re: In Search of the Renewably Powered Internet - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/233...
"Good point. The "internet of things" might bring in much more demand for energy in the data center in the future." - Eric D. Brown
Re: What Are the Three Basic Components of the Data Center? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/232...
"While they are managed by others, facilities are a huge aspect of the data center. I actually usually take the opposite approach when thinking of the data center...I consider the 'entire' data center (building, electrical, etc) as "the data center" and assume IT has control over it all, when in reality the data center sites inside a facility managed by another team (usually)." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Who Pays the Energy Bill for Your Data Center? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/228...
"I think we'll start seeing some more granular levels of measurement of energy once organizations start understanding how granular they can get in the data center. Put a sensor on every device that measures energy consumption and then watch how fast the organization starts planning changes to reduce costs on energy." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Middle East, Asia Data Center Market Getting Greener, Bigger - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/238...
"Great interview Karen. Like Chris says...there's some great lessons in here for running data centers in the more arid environments of the US (and the world)." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Creating the Agile Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/237...
"Exactly. Unless you know what is happening within the data center, you can't really make an informed decisions on how to manage the DC or what changes would be best." - Eric D. Brown
