In-house Backups vs Outsourcing
By Corporate Backup | 1/8/2014
When the very definition of being a managed service provider encompasses an almost endless number of potential jobs, it can be difficult for business owners to draw the line that dictates how far the skills and resources of their staff can take the business. The ultimate ending scenario is a business that is ‘a jack of all trades, master of none’ and fades away into obscurity. This is not to be confused with lacking the high level skills to do brilliant work, it simply means that there is not enough time available for engineers to focus on their jobs and perform the core operations to the best of their abilities. Some business owners would argue that as competition becomes increasingly fierce, they need to diversify the product portfolio. This is neither true nor false, but simply ‘adding services’ means that the business will fall victim to the law of diminishing returns (assuming number of staff and billable hours and all other factors remain equal)

Virtualization and Cloud Computing: Optimized Power, Cooling, and Management Maximizes Benefits
By APC Australia Pty Ltd | 9/5/2014
IT virtualization, the engine behind cloud computing, can have significant consequences on the data center physical infrastructure (DCPI). Higher power densities that often result can challenge the cooling capabilities of an existing system. Reduced overall energy consumption that typically results from physical server consolidation may actually worsen the data center’s power usage effectiveness (PUE). Dynamic loads that vary in time and location may heighten the risk of downtime if rack-level power and cooling health are not understood and considered. Finally, the fault-tolerant nature of a highly virtualized environment could raise questions about the level of redundancy required in the physical infrastructure. These particular effects of virtualization are discussed and possible solutions or methods for dealing with them are offered.
