After much blood, sweat and tears, we are only too ready to let this innovative beast out. Give a round of rapturous applause to the tide-turning EasyDCIM v1.5.1 which is about to add whole new layers of automated OS installation! (more…)
As from the 1.5.0 version, EasyDCIM allows admins to install any of the supported operating systems on existing EasyDCIM servers in a totally automated manner – from the moment of selecting an installation template to running post-installation scripts. Yeah, saying that will never fail to give us a thrill. But that is not enough reason for us to slow down the tempo and just slob around while there is still so much to be done! Talking about progress – we are putting final touches to the 1.5.1 version which will extend the range of supported OS systems to include the long asked-for Windows Servers. Care for a little teaser?

The road so far…
It was exactly on 25th June 2015 that a team of software geeks looked at their work with satisfaction and concluded: our all-embracing control panel is officially ready to launch and change the life of data center owners forever. And this is how the legend of EasyDCIM was born! (more…)
One of the reasons why you love EasyDCIM is probably the extent to which it automates all sorts of processes going on under the roof of your data center. But as you will see for yourself in a few moments, the milestone 1.5.0 version of you favorite control panel brings the subject of automation to a whole new level! (more…)
Comprehensive diagnostics and analysis of device parameters allows you to optimize the functioning of the entire data center. Because of this precious insight, you are able to avoid the dire consequences of potential failures, rationalize planning of device maintenance intervals, and significantly prolong the service life of devices. But not only that – proactive monitoring also helps to raise energy efficiency of the individual pieces of equipment, and consequently – the whole data center altogether. (more…)
The sheer amount of sundry data stored and disseminated in server rooms every day, hour and minute is just staggering. And given the highly competitive nature of data center industry, it should not come as shock to anyone that effective data analysis is starting to play an increasingly important role for more and more business owners.
Are you one of them? (more…)
A quick word of introduction for those who have only recently joined our crash course on the addictive subject of colocation: the term refers to the end-to-end process of providing a technical environment in which the client’s web server will run smoothly and at a reasonable cost. The most sizable percentage of all clients opting for colocation services in data centers is occupied by eCommerce companies seeking guaranteed server resources and a secure background for online transactions processed on their websites. The potential of colocation services is also highly appreciated by telecommunications companies which use the devices for traffic exchange with their partners and prospective firms via a high-speed connection. And finally, colocation proves useful to enterprises simply determined to protect their data from disasters as well as back up their data outside the company’s headquarters. (more…)
Equipped with sound knowledge of colocation, you already grasp the potential behind its capability of providing space, power supplies and cooling. Colocation also improves physical safety of servers, mass storage and network devices of third parties, and furthermore links them with different providers of telecommunication and network services – all this at a minimum cost and complexity. Most suppliers of colocation solutions market their products to a wide audience, the one that includes both large and small-scale enterprises. Nine times out of ten, a customer owns the IT equipment, but it is the external company that arranges the electricity, sufficient bandwidth and efficient room ventilation. (more…)
It should not come as a surprise to anyone that deployment and maintenance of data centers is not exactly a money-friendly process. Not by a long shot. The purchase of the requisite equipment and software license alone is a long-term investment, not to mention the costs related to power usage. Yes, power usage – probably the most pricey recurring expense of all.
Colocation is usually made up of numerous devices running 24/7 so as to provide the users with round-the-clock access. You do not need to be a Maths genius to figure out that the more devices assigned to the colocation → the higher the power consumption rate → the bigger the costs. But that is not all. When we take into account the fact that some larger metropolitan areas and remote places have considerably higher cost of electricity than other locations, we might end up with really cosmic numbers. (more…)
Server colocation as well as dedicated servers are two primary services offered by a data center. Their main function is to ensure the top security of the stored data, which they indeed do in a bidirectional way: by eliminating the risk of data loss and providing continuous access to it.
Colocating the infrastructure in an external, professionally managed data center goes with a wide spectrum of tangible benefits. Most importantly, the erased data is extremely difficult to retrieve and that no one can really afford so here it comes the already mentioned matter of security. On top of that, such a solution also spares you the huge cost of deploying and maintaining your personal server room – and we all love some extra savings, don′t we?
