Ponemon Institute Downtime Report Examines Data Center Outages From Core to Edge
Survey Shows Today's Networks Are More Vulnerable to Downtime
Despite rising criticality, data center stakeholders are failing to implement best practices, and outages are now lasting longer than at any time in the last 10 years. These are among the key findings from the latest Ponemon Institute report on the frequency and duration of downtime in the data center. The report is the fourth of its kind since 2010, but the first one to analyze outages at the edge of the network.

Key Strategies for Preventing Data Center Downtime
Not only are data center outages happening too often, but they are also lasting longer. Restoration following an outage isn’t enough to reverse these costly and disruptive trends. After analyzing the root cause, comprehensive solutions in the following areas should be implemented.

Your Five Senses at the Edge: How Sensors Can Be Your Eyes and Ears
In today’s edge environments, it can be difficult to have a clear picture of what’s going on at any given time. There are so many sites at a variety of locations – often remote – that you likely haven’t visited them all and have little visibility into the equipment or the environment in which they are located.
Data Center Monitoring Best Practices
Optimizing data center performance is like trying to hit a small, fast-moving target. Even with technology in place meant to stabilize conditions (i.e. computer room air conditioning units, power distribution units, data center infrastructure management), there are simply too many ever-changing variables that may impact environmental quality.
