The last few newsletters have discussed LAN design in general and data center LAN design in particular. This newsletter will discuss an RFI for data center LAN switching.
In our last newsletter we discussed the overall movement to redesign the typical data center LAN in general and the movement to reduce the number of layers in the design in particular. In this newsletter we will continue that discussion and will include how the traditional assumptions and LAN design guidelines are giving way to a new set of assumptions and guidelines.

What would be an ideal setup for these requirements: -- can read and write data from both data center -- if either data center is lost, the other can take over
The options I can think of : -- say if we have 6 servers, put 3 in one data center, the other 3 at the other center, set up the six servers as one cluster, is latency (nodes exchanging info, internal replication within the cluster) an issu
The recent acquisition of Summit Energy has given Schneider Electric a broader energy management services and solution portfolio, evidenced by the company’s EnergyStep Data Center Assessment service, which gives managers a peek at the power, cooling, physical infrastructure and operational efficiencies (or lack thereof) of a data center.
Services include the Data Center Assessment and the EnergySt
Hewlett-Packard had a cutout section of its modular data center on display at its user conference last week in Las Vegas. HP believes it will sell a lot of its EcoPODs as companies look for ways to replenish data center capacity.
