Did you know that data centers represent an impressive 1.8 percent of the total energy consumption within the United States? As anyone knows, energy consumption is expensive. The challenge for many data centers is that future energy usage is expected to continue to increase (as will their respective costs). This challenge is further escalated by the fact that many data centers are ineffectively using what energy resources they do have.

All too often shrinking budgets within the education sector cause an array of IT challenges. For one large state university in the northeast, the challenge of a shrinking budget was threatening to limit their ability to use more than one data center. In order to overcome this challenge, the university turned to the Raritan team for a bit of help and of course expertise in data monitoring, security, and storage solutions.

The rise in cyber-attacks and ransomware threats have many businesses increasing their IT infrastructure security. Unfortunately, in an effort to increase security, far too many businesses overlook the proper configuration of IT devices and systems, as well as the importance of creating an enforceable security policy. The best data security policy in the world means nothing if networks and devices aren't properly configured, and if employees ignore the best practices that are in place to prevent cyber-attacks.

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
