When was the last time you thought about your disaster recovery plan? Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, or floods can occur anytime and disable your data center, with little to no warning. Hacker activities like a denial of service attack can also take down your systems unexpectedly. Then you have the more mundane risks such as human error and hardware or software failures. The only predictable thing to say about these risks is that at some point, on some scale, you’ll have to recover your data center from downtime. When it comes to disaster readiness, proactive planning is the key to success. Every business, regardless of size, needs to have a well-tested disaster recovery plan in place. Every minute your systems are down, the financial implications grow. Take the assessment to see where your disaster recovery plan ranks. Then learn about next steps and more information.

When working with data center and commercial facility electrical systems, shocks of 100mA to more than 2,000mA are possible—definitely in the realm of serious harm to humans and property. Energized electrical equipment also presents the risk of arc flash caused by electrical faults that produce powerful explosions. When dealing with commercial and industrial electrical systems, such as uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) and their batteries, data center and facilities managers need to be aware of these risks, especially since some repair and maintenance procedures require working with a unit that is still energized. There are ways to minimize the risks to employees, equipment and the field technician performing the service. This paper answers some common questions about UPS maintenance, how to reduce the risks associated with servicing UPSs and batteries, and how to qualify a UPS service provider.

Modern data centers have and continue to undergo transformation. Driven by familiar trends, green IT, endpoint growth, externalization, and increased resource requirements, modern data centers support more services, users, and data than ever before. The potential of new risks to the modern data center demands renewed attention to data center security. Data center architects must build in proper security controls, and policies and processes to address and mitigate these new risks.

The importance of healthcare providers to assure their patients the utmost security, confidentiality and integrity of their sensitive information cannot be understated. This means being HIPAA compliant within every aspect of their practice, with a particular emphasis on the components of their healthcare IT infrastructure This white paper described elements and best practices of a HIPAA compliant data center. This comprehensive guide spans the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards of the HIPAA Security rule from the physical security and environmental controls necessary of the facility itself, to the requirements needed between a Covered Entity (CE) and the data center provider when outsourcing. Detailing both the benefits and risks of a third-party partnership, this white paper provides answers to key questions such as what exactly makes a data center HIPAA compliant, what to look for when choosing a service provider to work with, and why a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is important for establishing accountability with these partners.

In most cases, your physical data center will not disappear as these growth trends play out. Instead, it will evolve into a hybrid environment, incorporating a mixture of physical and virtual computing technologies—including both public and private clouds. You’ll face even more challenging security risks within these hybrid environments than you have protecting your physical data center today. And you won’t be alone with these challenges when making the shift to a hybrid data center architecture.
