One of the major technology trends as perceived by the IT media this past year has been cloud computing. Amazon has had tremendous success with AWS (Amazon Web Services), although recent, high-profile outages may temper expectations somewhat. Other industry giants such as Microsoft, Citrix, and VMware continue to market their cloud services as vital parts of their overall business. But when you get past the buzz, what exactly is the cloud? What is new or different about it? I say, not as much as others would lead you to believe.
Last week, “Datacenter Geography” observed that it now often makes sense to site new facilities in places, like Oklahoma or Ontario, that seemed exotic to the IT (information technology) world of just a few years ago. The destination that truly is dominating plans for the near future, though, is … nowhere. DevOps, get comfortable havingRead More
Kansas? Canada? Congo? Where should your next datacenter be built? While technicians most often discuss siting in terms of energy availability, network geometry, and perhaps workforce skills, business decisions at the highest levels more often focus on government subsidies, legal regimes and occasionally organizational strategy. Here’s a bit of the context and trends in datacenterRead More
Datacenters aren’t the energy villains the popular press too-often portrays. While the “Real User Monitoring blog” has already punched several holes in this canvas, a few important points remain before we return next week to the details of keeping an eye on the performance your applications deliver to end-users. At a highly-aggregated level, Jonathan KoomeyRead More

I’m with Arthur Cole: as important as cost and “the environment” are in design and operation of datacenters, they remain subordinate to “data and application performance”. That’s why he recently wrote, “Green IT for Better Application Performance“. The most compelling reason to get energetics right in your datacenter is not a marginal impact on carbonRead More
“The right tool for the job” is a great slogan. It’s only a fraction of an analysis, though. Let’s see how it applies to monitoring products. Nearly all engineers know this scheme, in one of several homely renderings: only an idiot would use a saw to hammer in screw; you don’t deliver a load ofRead More
This outage serves as a perfect use case for application performance management. Most large scale failures can be mitigated quickly and effectively with the right monitoring tools. It looks like the Yahoo team made some crucial failures throughout the process which made things worse. Lets take a quick look at some strategies Yahoo could have employed to avoid disaster
Energy costs are a win for well-run datacenters. It’s quite right to point out, with varying degrees of accuracy, that datacenters use a lot of electricity, or that energy dominates run-time datacenter costs. It’s entirely different, and in fact incorrect, to conclude that rising energy costs should or will dampen datacenter growth and consolidation. AtRead More
