In a world where data is often a company's most valuable asset, nothing is as important as selecting the tools needed to offer secure accessibility, flexibility, and reliability. Unfortunately, the very tool needed to deliver the aforementioned qualities was often cumbersome and hard to deploy, which is why Raritan created the Dominion SX II. The Dominion SX II leverages over a decade of process improvements and 500 million hours of operation to enhance the original SX version. These enhancements are what make the Dominion SX II the next-generation serial console / terminal server and allows it to achieve a best-in-class status.

IT leaders are currently facing the challenge of effectively integrating multiple infrastructures into a single, optimally-functioning environment, commonly known as hybrid IT. Many colocated data centers can offer a solution to this challenge by providing the capabilities that make a hybrid environment so attractive, including a secure, private cloud with access to public clouds. Colocation data centers can also help enterprises deploy and manage a hybrid data center in the following ways:
• Security measures
• Access to multiple providers
• Flexibility and scalability
• Curated cloud ecosystems
• Service availability
• Control over workloads
• Shift CAPEX to OPEX

It's no secret that many data centers make large investments in space, power, and cooling. The challenge, especially when the client is a media giant, is to determine how to use these three resources most effectively. After all, the more effectively that the data center can use its space, power, and cooling, the cheaper it will be to maintain and operate.

When you think of a data center, you often think of a nondescript warehouse that is sporting row upon row of computers. Giant air conditioning units and top-notch security complete the picture. But for one of the biggest names in the game, Microsoft, a traditional data center is not enough of an innovative leap. The company recently decided to sink a data center inside of a bus sized cylinder off Scotland's northern coast. While this might sound a bit ridiculous, the new underwater server farm (as it is currently being called) is in fact a real look towards a potential future for data centers.

It is no secret that the world revolves around data. This data might take many forms, and for those people with child-like imaginations it might seem as if the data is floating by in the air just out of reach. However, the reality is far simpler: data needs to be stored somewhere, which has led to a boom in data center construction across the world. From micro-embedded data centers to submerged ocean data centers, companies are rapidly expanding their global data center portfolios. The question that remains is, "why?"
