Increased Uptake of DCIM Predicted Globally for 2013 as Industry Awareness Grows

DCD Intelligence Publishes a Series of Executive Briefs, Sponsored by CA Technologies, Offering Practical Advice for Organizations Involved in a DCIM Project

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwired – Oct 21, 2013) – DCD Intelligence (DCDi), the business intelligence division of DatacenterDynamics (DCD), announces today that it expects 2013 to see an increased number of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) service deployments compared with the previous year. The finding reflects a growing appreciation of the benefits of DCIM among data center operators. Although 2012 figures published by DCDi showed slower than expected deployment growth, 2013 figures — due to be released this November — are expected to show a substantial increase in global DCIM uptake.

Across the industry, DCIM has been hailed as the answer to the energy efficiency problem. The technology is designed to help data center operators monitor, measure and manage all of the critical functions at their facility in a more centralized and unified way. This results in improved efficiency, better management of risk and improved utilization of data center capacity. However, as with any new technology, the market needs to undergo a learning curve, not only in relation to the benefits of DCIM, but also regarding the implementation process itself.

According to Nicola Hayes, Managing Director of DCD Intelligence, one reason for an initial reluctance among enterprises to embark on DCIM implementation is a general lack of understanding of where and how to start implementing DCIM and the specific steps that are required.

“As with any new technology, information on the practical steps needed to implement is lacking,” comments Hayes. “There is already an abundant supply of information from vendors regarding the potential offered by DCIM. However, there is little real information on how to effectively implement DCIM and the steps needed to be DCIM-ready.”

DCD Intelligence has recently published a series of executive briefs, sponsored by CA Technologies, which offers end users practical advice on the steps organizations need to take before embarking on a DCIM project. These briefs also include the practical decision-making steps that should be followed, the impact of the deployment on an organization’s personnel, and the integration of DCIM with existing data center technologies. Each executive brief in the DCIM Leadership Series gives the reader key facts and practical steps to aid decision-making.

“While many DCIM vendors present complex value propositions and abstract ROI benefits to potential buyers, CA Technologies believes data center practitioners need and want clear, actionable steps towards adopting and implementing DCIM,” states Dhesikan Ananchaperumal, a distinguished engineer with CA Technologies. “We selected DCD Intelligence because of its industry leadership and ability to provide readers with timely and relevant advice on DCIM trends and technologies.”

DCD Intelligence Finds Modular Deployment Costs Up to 14% Lower Than Traditional Data Center Build

DCD Intelligence Releases New White Paper, “Assessing the Cost, Modular vs. Traditional Build”

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwired – Sep 20, 2013) – DCD Intelligence, a division of DatacenterDynamics that offers an array of market research, business intelligence, analysis and reporting services, releases a report today assessing the comparative costs of deployment of modular solutions versus traditional builds. Its research findings conclude that the actual cost of deployment of a modular solution is between 13 and 14 percent less than the build of a traditional data center of similar capacity, when all associated costs are taken into consideration.

Modular approaches to data centers have grown in popularity during the past two years. But one of the problems facing not only end-users, but also modular vendors themselves, has been the lack of clarity into full cost comparisons of modular solutions versus traditional brick-and-mortar data centers.

The DCD Intelligence White Paper ‘Assessing the Cost, Modular vs. Traditional Build’ offers insight into the real cost comparisons of both approaches, and is a valuable tool for any infrastructure manager or modular solutions provider looking for real cost comparisons. The main findings of the paper point to cost savings when all costs are taken into account, and also concludes that for operators looking to lower PUE in their data centers, a modular approach may offer a solution. The research also states that the greater density and more efficient use of space mean that modular facilities are able to achieve significantly better PUE compared to traditional data centers in many cases.

Chris Drake, Lead Analyst at DCD Intelligence and Author of the white paper, does point out that, in spite of the paper’s findings, the issue is far more complex than simply assuming that a modular approach will always offer significant cost savings.

“It is important to recognize that there are a vast number of modular products available; not all of which offer the same standards and certifications and levels of support to end users,” comments Drake. “This paper offers the first real cost comparison of modular versus traditional build. But, as with any market, the potential savings will vary depending on the particular modular solution chosen.”

The research was undertaken with the support of three key players in the modular space: IO, Colt and Gardner all of which provided DCD Intelligence with valuable information that made the costs comparisons possible. Other prominent players in both the modular and traditional build space also contributed data.

“Every new market or technology is misunderstood early in its life cycle, and modular data centers are no exception,” states Troy Rutman, Director of Corporate Communications for IO. “IO was delighted to be involved in a project designed to quantify actual customer benefits rather than to market a particular product or service. The DCD Intelligence project offers real information on modular solutions and particularly the cost benefits versus traditional data center builds. By collaborating with DCD Intelligence, we ensured that we can offer our customers neutral educational information that will play a substantial role in determining the future of the data center industry.”

“Participating in this project gave us the opportunity to get independent insight into the costs of the modular approach to building data centers and traditional methods,” adds Victor Smith, Product Director for Colt. “We’ve known for some time that the benefits of a modular approach, in particular around costs and efficiency, are very compelling. This study however offers an impartial comparison and view. Colt is delighted that this paper can offer end-users actual cost comparisons and aid their own decision making.”

DE-CIX Initiates Game-Changing Carrier-Neutral Internet Exchange in New York

World’s Largest Internet Exchange Operator to Enter U.S. Market Starting With New York City

FRANKFURT, GERMANY–(Marketwired – Sep 18, 2013) – DE-CIX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange operator headquartered in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), announces today the launch of its U.S. operations. DE-CIX North America will establish Internet exchanges in major U.S. metro regions, with New York City as the first market to receive a distributed, carrier- and data center-neutral Internet Exchange. DE-CIX makes this game-changing move in the North American telecommunications market in an effort to begin boosting the country’s vital digital infrastructure and the infrastructure of the cities in which it will operate.

Built on the same successful open model as DE-CIX in Frankfurt, DE-CIX North America will engineer the new Internet exchanges in the U.S. for the high-capacity, high-performance Layer 2 interconnection known as “Peering.”

Different than the prevailing U.S. Internet traffic exchange model, DE-CIX will deploy a large-scale Ethernet switching fabric, combined with an all-fiber metro optical backbone that supports traffic volumes of up to numerous Terabits per second across multiple data centers in the selected metropolitan areas. This will enable all types of Internet providers to exchange traffic across the neutral, distributed infrastructure. This is an advantage over current U.S. colocation and exchange models, in which data centers primarily serve their own on-campus tenants or connect customers with passive Private Interconnects (PI).

“New York is a world-class city with an active interest in evolving its digital infrastructure to the highest levels,” states Harald A. Summa, CEO for DE-CIX. “The city is the top choice for Internet companies right now. We therefore selected New York City as the headquarters of our new U.S. operations and also decided to make New York the home of our first Internet exchange deployment in North America.”

“NYC is home to a huge concentration of ISPs, including broadband providers, content companies and a thriving and growing tech community,” continues Summa. “Establishing and developing the new exchange will go far in elevating New York’s reputation as one of the world’s great technology hubs, in addition to its other first-rate attributes. DE-CIX’s new exchange in New York will be operational soon, while we are also planning for deployments in Silicon Valley and Los Angeles. DE-CIX will help these selected cities to grow their role as Internet hubs and finally achieve the major role they deserve in the global Internet ecosystem.”

The City of New York has already taken action to address digital infrastructure development with programs such as the ConnectNYC Fiber Access program. These efforts are an essential element of making the city a better place for both companies and individuals.

“We are in the midst of transforming New York City into the world’s leading digital city,” says Rachel Haot, New York City’s Chief Digital Officer. “Our work is about ensuring that digital technology touches all New Yorkers to improve their lives. Implementing this neutral Internet exchange in our City is an important step forward in improving the fundamental technology infrastructure that fuels our New York City and enables it to compete globally with other digital hubs.”

Following the open Internet exchange approach, DE-CIX will continue to support the Open-IX initiative, which is a new industry group that supports, among other topics, the creation of neutral and cost-efficient Internet exchanges that are backed by the Internet community at large.

DE-CIX successfully operates and manages Internet exchanges throughout the globe, including UAE-IX in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), which recently announced record growth; and DE-CIX in Frankfurt, Germany.

About DE-CIX
Founded in 1995, DE-CIX in Frankfurt is the leading operator of Ethernet-based carrier and ISP interconnection (Peering) worldwide. DE-CIX facilitates the exchange of IP traffic between networks through a distributed, failsafe and scalable infrastructure in various metro markets across Germany and in the Middle East. This includes broadband networks, hosting providers, content providers and cloud computing players. More than 500 ISPs from over 50 countries use DE-CIX to handle a large fraction of their Internet traffic and make DE-CIX the world’s largest interconnection facility that supports peering. DE-CIX’s customer base includes the world’s leading players, such as 1&1, Akamai, China Telecom, Facebook, Google and Telefonica.

The company began its international growth with the takeover in 2012 of the operations of UAE-IX in Dubai, UAE, the country’s first carrier-neutral interconnection and peering platform. Further information is available at: www.de-cix.net.
