Re: The Four Disruptive Factors Affecting the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/364...
"True" - Eric D. Brown
"True enough, but these are fairly new innovations that a haven't had a lot of traction yet but I think that will change soon enough." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Will the Data Center Be Dead by 2020? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/357...
"Agreed Pete." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Amazon’s Data Center to Heat Nearby Buildings - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/362...
"I've been to Seattle quite a few times over the last 15 years and I can say that the "rainy weather" is indeed a myth. Sure, it rains a lot but most days I've been there it has been quite nice." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Amazon’s Data Center to Heat Nearby Buildings - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/362...
"I like the closed loop aspect as well. I'm not sure what other systems are doing but I like the approach here. Additionally, I too like that Amazon is doing this...seeing a large player like this taking this approach might make the idea catch on in other places." - Eric D. Brown
Re: The Four Disruptive Factors Affecting the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/364...
"I agree...the cloud can bring disruption but it has been slow (if at all). I think we'll see a speed-up in the coming years." - Eric D. Brown
"I see the nationalism issue as more of a business reality as well. I don't really see any disruption happening there...businesses just need to find a way to deliver their services while following the guidelines of that country/region." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Would You Turn Off Your Data Center as a Test? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/360...
"Exactly. Plans are great but until you test them out, you really aren't sure what will happen." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Will the Data Center Be Dead by 2020? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/357...
"I agree on the major changes. I think we are on the cusp of seeing those changes today." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Will the Data Center Be Dead by 2020? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/357...
"The cloud will turn into rain. That's the next big thing...when will companies start moving to the 'rain'? :)" - Eric D. Brown

"I don't see the big deal with any of these disruptions...I'm hoping they do happen." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Are Our Metrics the Metrics the CEO Needs? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/355...
"Agreed Joel. I think there's some interesting metrics to be found, but unless they are tied to 'bottom-line' or 'top-line', I'm not sure that the CEO really cares." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Are Our Metrics the Metrics the CEO Needs? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/355...
"Exactly Paul. Great description." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Will the Data Center Be Dead by 2020? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/357...
"Good explanation Joel. I guess I need to learn more about punditry...it is very hard for me to say something like "the data center will be dead by 2020" with a straight face :)" - Eric D. Brown
Re: Would You Turn Off Your Data Center as a Test? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/360...
"This is great advice. While the testing is great, the actual circumstances of the real disaster might be completely different. That said, the testing helps ensure that the organization will be as ready as possible when the real disaster strikes." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Will the Data Center Be Dead by 2020? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/357...
"The timeline is pretty ambitious...and I think he selected it for 'shock' purposes, but he does have a point. If virtualization can be done 'in-house', why can't it be done in the cloud? Of course, to move to the cloud requires all of your questions to be answered and issues to be addressed." - Eric D. Brown
Re: The Value of Comatose Servers - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/353...
"Good point. Data I/O is an area that is very rarely considered when it comes to performance." - Eric D. Brown
Re: What About the Water? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/356...
"Good article Karen. Here's a thought - that desalination plant provide water to the data center and then the 'waste' water from the data center can get pumped out to be used for public consumption (for irrigation, etc). I wonder if that's a possibility?" - Eric D. Brown
Re: The Value of Comatose Servers - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/353...
"Exactly. My only concern is the capabilities of all the extra capacity. Are these machines powerful enough to take on today's computing requirements once they begin to be utilized? Something for organizations and IT to consider." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Do We Really Need Metrics to Measure Data Center Efficiency? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/354...
"Yes, we need metrics but those metrics need to be meaningful to the organization. Standard metrics are nice starting points but each organization needs to be clear about what metrics are important to them and be sure to include those metrics in any dashboards." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Renting versus Building Your Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/347...
"Very true. The complexity is increasing a great deal. The same data center professionals who built or managed the data center 5 years ago may not be able to build/manage the data center of tomorrow." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Is a Software-Defined Data Center in Your Future? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/342...
"This article really drives home the point that some companies won't do anything until they are pushed by investors." - Eric D. Brown
Re: More Insight from Intel on the Future of the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/344...
"Considering Intel is trying to partner with everybody else, I think Intel has their bases covered." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Is There a Future For Small and Mid-Size Data Centers? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/345...
"Great article Pete. Thanks for sharing." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Is There a Future For Small and Mid-Size Data Centers? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/345...
"Good point here Pete. Modular systems and core/pod approaches might make it much easier for smaller organizations to keep their data centers in-house." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Data Center Disruption: What Does It Mean for Efficiency? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/346...
"Exactly!" - Eric D. Brown
Re: Renting versus Building Your Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/347...
"This is true, but we also see huge companies throwing money at their data centers and the facilities that house them. The analysis must show that at some point it is cheaper to own than rent...but unless you are running very large data centers, I would expect that 'renting' would be the ideal situation for most companies." - Eric D. Brown
Re: More Insight from Intel on the Future of the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/344...
"This is true, but they can still be used in commodity machines. You might have to spend a bit more money for the processor but when compared to the overall cost of a specialized piece of hardware, your costs are still much cheaper." - Eric D. Brown
Re: The Future of the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/348...
"This is true. Workload management will be the main driver for data center operators in the future. The idea of "core and pod' makes this clear - build a pod or pods to maximize the capabilities for the workload(s) at hand." - Eric D. Brown
