Future Facilities has launched a version of its data center modeling software with new user interface that aims to take the “dark art” aspect out of computational fluid dynamics.
Called 6SigmaDCX, the software takes the user through the model building process in logical steps, simplifies access to objects in the model, has tool icons with detailed tool tips, drag-and-drop features, automatic object placement suggestions, and simplified presentation of object properties.
Google made headlines when it revealed that it is using machine learning to optimize its data center performance. But the search giant isn’t the first company to harness artificial intelligence to fine-tune its server infrastructure. In fact, Google’s effort is only the latest in a series of initiatives to create an electronic “data center brain” that can analyze IT infrastructure.
Your applications are critical to your business and your users. In fact, much of the focus around mobility, content delivery, and data control directly revolves around virtualized enterprise applications.
Both new and legacy applications are moving to virtualization because it reduces cost, improves hardware utilization and simplifies management. Originally, proprietary virtualization platforms were the dominant forces in the industry.
We’re experiencing a workplace transformation! The very nature of work as we once knew it has fundamentally changed. Work is no longer a location, it is an activity. Work is not a place you go, it’s a thing you do. There is increasingly a very dynamic rhythm to the nature of work, which involves teams that form and evolve over time. Team members are often geographically dispersed, and work can and often does happen around the clock.
Planar Systems, Inc., a global leader in display and digital signage technology, today announced two new ultra-narrow bezel LCD models in its line of Clarity™ Matrix LCD Video Wall System with G2 Architecture, bringing superior visual performance to an even wider variety of video wall applications. The two new Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture options include a 46” model with 800 nits brightness and a 55” model with 500 nits brightness. The new models feature a tiled bezel width of just 3.7mm (0.15 inches) between adjacent LCD displays for a near-seamless image.
At InfoComm 2014, Planar Systems, Inc., a global leader in display and digital signage technology, announced it is expanding its 4K product offerings with new displays ranging in size from 28” to 98”. The new displays, which will be showcased at the InfoComm 2014 tradeshow, include additions to two popular Planar product families—the Planar® UltraRes™ Series and Planar® EP-Series™. Planar also unveiled its new Planar® IX-Series™ 4K desktop monitor.
Today, the home of all modern platforms and technologies is the data center, so the right model can mean everything for your business. Many organizations are working much more closely with their data center design partners to ensure that agility, scalability, and efficiency are all built in.
Equinix and Datapipe have teamed up to provide hybrid IT solutions that combine managed Amazon Web Services cloud and data center colocation. It has been possible to create such hybrid environments out of Equinix data centers before. What’s new is the full managed services offered by Datapipe.
