    In the world of data centers there are several kinds of rails used to mount server and switch devices. From two post rails to four post rails, square hole and round hole. The most commonly seen rail by Silverback is the four post, square holed variety. For more basic information on rails check out our knowledge base article on the standards used: Rail Standards. While called a 19″ rack, there are no actual dimensions within the rack that equal 19″, they are referring to the width of the device faces that will fit within the rails. Rack units on the other hand are a steady and…

    Telegraph has a post reporting that Bats are dying because of the turbine blade pressures, not impact. Bats get ‘the Bends’ when they fly too near wind turbines, experts have claimed. Queen’s University Belfast said pressure from the turbine blades causes a similar condition as that experienced by divers when the surface too quickly. Conservationists have warned that the bodies of bats are frequently seen around the bases of turbines, but it was previously assumed they had flown into the blades. However, Dr Richard Holland claims that bats suffer from ‘barotrauma’ when the approach…

    It was only 15 years ago that Google was running on slightly more than 100 servers, stacked in racks Sergey Brin and Larry Page put together themselves using cheap parts – including insulating corkboard pads – to cut down the cost of their search engine infrastructure. That do-it-yourself ethos has stayed with the company to this day, albeit it is now applied at much bigger scale.

    In a bid to attract more business (and paid) accounts, Dropbox has added several enterprise-friendly features, including better security, better sharing and better search. Dropbox touts over 300 million end users, but the online collaboration and storage company needs more paid accounts. They offset the plethora of free accounts and the operating expenses that come with running a massive infrastructure to support the service. The free accounts are a necessary evil that exposes first-time users to companies like Dropbox or competitor Box, which compete with giants like Google, which…

    The modern business is truly evolving. As more users, applications and workloads encompass the cloud, data center platforms will sit square in the middle of all technological advancements. New demands require different types of server deployments, new ways to control change, and a much better management methodology. Your data center is one of your organization’s biggest investments, costing millions of dollars with fixed amounts of space, cooling, networking and power capacities. It houses tens of thousands of assets – a third of which should be updated annually - and consumes a third or…

Since then the US Treasury has gone on to classify Bitcoin as a decentralized virtual currency. Without a central repository or single administrator payments work peer-to-peer.

    If your company does not use cloud computing as part of daily operations, there is a good chance to break into the model in the coming time. One of the main benefits of the cloud is its ability to outsource the infrastructure and management of complex applications and data services, allowing data center managers to purchase computing cycles and storage capacity in a more granular fashion, on demand. Instead of spending capital in bulk for large servers and storage solutions, you can buy time based computer on actual usage of CPU cycles and the amount of gigabytes or terabytes in storage used.
