An Intel Corp. technologist speaking at a recent cloud industry event used the opportunity to mention a relatively recent approach to designing datacenter hardware: Intel’s rack-scale architecture. The chipmaker is positioning the “disaggregated” approach to datacenter design as a way for enterprises to develop hyper-scale infrastructure. Steve Orrin, Intel Federal’s chief technologist, pitched the company’s rack-scale design as a ...

As the federal bureaucracy stumbles toward datacenter modernization primarily via consolidation and a shift to the cloud, more than two-thirds of U.S. IT operators said in a survey they are most concerned about securing their cloud infrastructure. Moreover, the study underwritten by vendor Palo Alto Networks found that nearly half of respondents consider data security to be their biggest ...

As recent outages at Verizon Cloud and Facebook illustrate, datacenter operators can catch plenty of flack when their infrastructure goes off-line—for a few hours or a weekend. A cottage industry actually tracks outages and ranks cloud service providers. Hence, a lot of thought is being given to better ways of monitoring datacenter operations to avoid outages and improve availability. ...
