FiberMedia Group will be one of the companies participationg at today’s DatacenterDynamics Conference, on the CONVERGED Panel, “Is Engineering Flexible Enough to Cope with Future IT Demands?” with fellow industry leaders Stephen Worn, DatacenterDynamics as moderator, Dean Nelson, eBay, Kfir Godrich, HP Technology Services, James Kennedy, RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc.
Here are some of the questions these industry tastemakers be asking. Have we reached a point in the evolution of the data center industry where facilities cost escalation compared to IT hardware costs is unsustainable? This panel will discuss whether engineering is innovating quickly enough to meet future enterprise IT demands, can modularity [in its many form] deliver this, and what does the future hold for traditional data center builds?
FiberMedia’s Engineering and Executive team, including Michael Bucheit and Chris Baldwin, Sr. VP Engineering and Operations are the ideal candidates to respond, because FiberMedia Group creates customized data center solutions for it’s customers. With growing space and capabilities, FiberMedia Group offers sustainable solutions, cost-effective pricing and delivers custom builds for its clients. With a variety of high priority customers in the Financial Services, Healthcare, Information Technolgy, Content and other sectors moving a high level of information across a number of platforms, the FiberMedia team are experts in asking in depth questions about the future of the data center industry.
Find out more at 4:50pm – 5:30pm today at DatacenterDynamics Converged at the Marriot Marquis in NYC, today, March 13th, 2012. This industry networking event pulls together the people, processes and technology necessary to execute a world class data center strategy under one roof.
In a recent article published by Inside Networks, Rob Nash-Boulden, Managing Director Deerns America, offered a high level overview on an innovative new methodology that reduces energy consumption in demanding Cloud Data Center environments. And what great timing as recent research findings from the US based International Data Corporation, a global provider of market intelligence and advisory for IT and Telecoms, forecasts data storage on a global scale is projected to multiply by a factor of 50 in the coming decade.
The adaptation of cloud computing has picked-up momentum in the last twelve months. Data storage providers worldwide expect cloud computing to greatly enhance the efficiency of data center based IT environments and services. With the new datacenters supporting cloud solutions, enhanced efficiency for power consumption is a de facto requirement. On top of the increased efficiency of cloud computing as an IT platform, there is also significant potential for further savings through the integration of the management of the cloud environments and managed datacenter solutions (see FiberMedia Group to read more about managed cloud solutions within their data centers).
To frame the concept a bit, ‘Guiding the Cloud©‘, as the synergistic new concept has been tagged, principally manages – or guides – the cloud platform and the data center facility to minimize energy usage and electricity costs, without affecting cloud performance. The energy management method consists of a set of customized operational, review and energy management procedures, supported by enhanced software architecture. This allows the solution to take into account current statuses and short-term forecasts of the data center infrastructure, and cloud environment. In addition, it automatically manages the infrastructure to maintain set redundancy levels.
Deerns’ patent-pending solution has been proven to achieve an overall electricity cost reduction of as much as 5% to 10% savings in beta tests. So, if you’re doing the math on say a typical 10 MW consumption facility, the dollars can easily translate into $1M annually – of course the results vary depending on the geography and local electric rates of a given region. And that’s with ROI metrics expected to be greater that 100% per year. And looking forward, imagine the green impact with potential energy savings adding up to $10’s of millions per year for the largest global data providers.
In addition to these great initiatives, Deerns is expanding their North American presence as they recently teamed-up with Wired Real Estate Group (WiredRE) in an Alliance that supports a holistic approach to data center real estate advisory solutions. In fact the group brings great experience and success to the market, particularly focused on energy efficiency, reliability, modularity, and scalability. Deerns has designed more than 2,300,000 square feet of IT space worldwide, with IT power of more than 670MW.

Since the company’s launch in June 2011, Vincenzo (Enzo) Clemente has been steadfastly and efficiently delivering the messages and partnering with companies to design and build the most efficient dark fiber network solutions throughout New Jersey.
In a time that the New Jersey market has surged to becoming the leading marketplace for global financial services, healthcare service providers and Government/Education concerns, Cross River Fiber is filling a niche left abandoned by the traditional service providers in the market.
With a January 2012 kick-off underway, Cross River Fiber is eager to share their news and solutions with the market. The team at iMPR is excited to help them get their voices heard. Stay tuned for information about Cross River Fiber – and if you’re not already familiar with them? Then you should be. Visit www.crossriverfiber.com to find out why.
Is your company’s 2012 resolution to save money, increase revenue and create more efficiencies in your network? Then look no further than this post. There are a few companies that are capable of leveraging the right tools and software to help you achieve your network optimization goals. Global Capacity is one of the companies that leverages its vast knowledge and resources to provide companies tangible cost savings solutions that get results.
Through its One Marketplace Access Exchange, in essence an ‘Orbitz’ to quote, order, provision and manage global access network solutions, Global Capacity provides optimization analysis that can save companies a ton of money on access delivery solutions. How? By leveraging its proprietary platform together with its tariff software, LATTIS, and marketplace intelligence, Global Capacity can provide a real cost savings solution that saves money, consolidates network and identifies excess capacity that can be monetized.
1) By analyzing existing inventory, Global Capacity can identify where you are spending too much on individual circuits. Many companies don’t realize that over the course of time their circuits, though they may not be the most important (i.e. the ones they are provisioning today) are costing them a lot more money to manage than they should. By comparing your costs against marketplace rates typical savings of 5-7% can be achieved, particularly on ‘aged’ circuits.
2) This type of analysis yields a financial optimization solution where recommended consolidation, re-negotiation or circuit re-homing can accomplish even further cost savings results. Many network grooming solutions achieve a 10-15% cost savings for companies – this is attributable directly to your bottom line. AND – it gets better.
3) With a physical re-grooming solution implemented, Global Capacity can help optimize your network spend by consolidating network access solutions which results in identifying excess/unused capacity. This excess capacity can be used to provision new customer circuits at very little incremental cost. The diagram is an example of how you can achieve more efficiencies in your network, identify consolidation points to increase revenue.
This is just a small example but it’s powerful enough to illustrate how Global Capacity can help you achieve your goals this year. So start 2012 right – contact Global Capacity today to achieve the following:
1) Get an accurate inventory of your access network services and costs
2) Identify where cost savings and optimization can be achieved
3) Create excess capacity and then monetize it through effective channels that will increase revenue without increasing your costs
This solution will increase your bottom-line, improve margin and EBITDA. Contact email@example.com for more information or visit www.globalcapacity.com today.
