A new technology called “data center agnostic” allows enterprises to build their own data centers, using a mix of hardware and software to optimize the network infrastructure and power consumption of the building.
Data center agnostics, or DAAS, can reduce the energy, water, and power used by a building to run an enterprise, according to a recent white paper published by the International Data Center Association (IDCA).
The technology is based on the idea that an enterprise’s data center could be optimized to minimize the use of energy, while providing better access to resources like data, processing power, and storage.
With DAAS the building could also become an automated system that delivers and manages services for customers and employees.
“The data center is a huge infrastructure that’s very complex, very hard to design and build, and it needs a lot of resources,” said Daniel J. Sadowsky, IDCA’s president.
“DAAS is really a way of taking the best of these disparate infrastructure solutions and creating an agnostic data center, one that is built around the best hardware, the best software, and the best design, and one that will scale well and operate efficiently.”
DAAS enables enterprises to use software that automates the installation of different types of infrastructure, from virtualization to physical storage.
For example, an organization can build an onsite data center that can be run remotely, or it can install software that allows it to host its data center remotely on a network that is not part of the enterprise’s network.
DAAS can also enable data centers to be configured to handle a range of different scenarios, including low-power and high-capacity, data center-based applications, or data centers that are used by more than one customer or company.
“When you build a data center in a data-centric way, you don’t have a single solution for everything,” said Sadowski.
“There’s a whole spectrum of things you can do, but there’s a big range of solutions for different scenarios.
And that’s where DAAS is a way to scale this data center across the world.”
Data center technology was originally developed to enable a number of common building and industrial applications, like office buildings, warehouses, and warehouses.
But it also can be used to build more complex systems that can provide better services to customers and help manage complex applications and networks.
In recent years, DAAS has gained widespread adoption as an industrial-scale data center solution for large enterprises.
“Data centers are increasingly being used in all kinds of different industries, including retail, healthcare, transportation, finance, and real estate,” said Chris A. Dennison, chief executive officer of the Digital Data Center Alliance, a trade group for the industry.
“For example, if you are in a manufacturing business, you can have a data facility where you have a large number of people working at a facility.
Or you could have a small factory with a lot more people working.
And if you have one data center for manufacturing, you have an opportunity to scale the data center as well.”
With DAAs, organizations can make the data centers of their future more resilient to extreme events, such as floods, earthquakes, or the like, which can dramatically affect the operations of buildings.
DAAs can also be used for the storage of complex data.
“If you want to use a lot different data types, DAAs are great,” said Dennisons.
“You can put data on a cloud and do massive, really large volumes of data, and then you can then use that data on your servers and move it out of the cloud, and put it back on the servers again.”
The concept of DAAS could be expanded to other data centers across the organization.
“It’s possible that there could be an agnosticism of all these data centers and all these different services that are connected to them,” said David M. Laughlin, president of the data technology company Synapse, which offers software and services for building data centers.
“One of the great things about DAAS are its capabilities for the data to be stored in different data centers.”
DAAs also can enable data center owners to build out their own systems to manage data.
The technology enables data center operators to automate data center operations, such that data centers can be automated to deliver services to their customers.
For instance, data centers could be configured for low- or high-speed storage, or they could be used as central storage for larger databases.
Data centers can also use DAAS to provide services for data centers on a more local level.
Data Center Agnostic Software For DAAS developers to deploy DAAS solutions in their own organizations, they will need to develop their own software to manage and configure data centers based on a DAAS specification.
To do this, DAas software must be customized to meet specific requirements from the data-center operator.
This means DAAS software must provide an application that allows DAAS data centers operate
