Data Center Security
Is it Possible to use Open Standards for the Data Center? As we can see nowadays, there have been a lot of hacking incidents over the world wide web. Data Center is the main storage of all the important files of a particular company. By using Open Standard, what is the data center security it has provided for its users?
Optimising the datacentre using open standards
Summary: Employing open standards is the key to unlocking the full potential of your datacentre infrastructure.
The exponential growth of enterprise data and corporate reliance on technology is placing enormous demands on the modern datacentre. Information must be transmitted rapidly, processed in real time, and stored securely. Service uptime and availability guarantees necessary for your business to compete in the global marketplace are increasing. While cloud computing solutions to these problems have steadily matured and adoption is now widespread, business leaders continue to demand greater efficiencies and ROIs from their IT investments. Intel believes that employing open standards is the key to unlocking the full potential of your datacentre infrastructure.
When designing scale-out architecture to support constantly expanding and shifting business requirements, open standards play a critical role in maintaining interoperability. Recognising this, a consortium of large companies, including BMW, Lockheed Martin, Shell, and JP Morgan Chase, formed the Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) in 2010, which now boasts over 300 member organisations. Under technical guidance from Intel, ODCA aims to develop standards promoting interoperable cloud computing solutions and the adoption of industry best practices. ODCA hopes to simplify the selection of cloud services and datacentre solutions by creating a set of standard user-based models and reference designs. These usage models cover a broad range of topics, including infrastructure, security, commercial, carbon, compliance, management and services, data, and portability.
The leadership and innovation of industry associations developing open standards has created opportunities for all companies to optimise and streamline their datacentre operations. Migrating business applications and processes to standards-based cloud infrastructure saves money and improves performance by replacing expensive proprietary technology with cost-effective commodity hardware.
