The technological world is constantly innovating and evolving. Rather than break the rules, data centers can be found at the heart of these positive, yet disruptive changes. In Part 1 of this series, we explored two disruptive technologies that will help to meet the growing demands for data generation, security and storage. Now, we want to examine two technologies that will have the power to change the infrastructure and design of IT systems.

For the past few years, data breaches have run rampant amongst the news headlines. These breaches are defined as events whereby an individual's personal information, such as their name, Social Security number, financial or medical record, banking credentials, or credit card is put at risk or stolen. Recent studies have revealed that data breaches are either the result of an internal or external malicious attack, system error, or human error. While the causes of data center breaches vary, the result is typically costly for any organization.

As a growing volume of sensitive data increasingly floats across your cloud and virtualized infrastructure, it’s easy to think about security and compliance in non-physical terms. That’s because compliance mandates such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR require your organization to protect data no matter where it resides. And if an attacker breaches your environment through a phishing email or an unpatched vulnerability, there’s no telling where they can wind up as they probe laterally across your network.


Brownouts Looming: What’s Your Data Center Plan?

As temperatures continue to rise in the summer months and energy clusters form, data center managers find themselves preparing for the upcoming "outage season." In fact, from June to August more data centers experience outages than during any other time of the year. These outages are due, in part, to the rapidly rising increase in power demands that can no longer be met by an archaic power infrastructure. In addition to their fight to avoid outages, data centers are left fighting external temperatures that can wreak havoc on ill-prepared facilities. Fortunately, there is a bit of good news; with the right tools savvy data center managers can beat the summer heat and avoid the brownouts that are lurking behind every heatwave.

When we think of the word "disruptive," we often think of something troublesome. However, when it comes to disruptive technologies the opposite is true. As we will discuss in this three-part series, these disruptive technologies are innovative and helping data centers evolve to meet growing needs.
