Virtualization has quickly become a core part of data center culture. Although hardware still matters, the popularity of virtualization continues to grow as it’s both faster and better. Virtualizations with VMware will allow you to grow by moving past the single server, single application philosophy to operating several virtual machines on one physical server.
As the operating systems available today only use a fraction of all of the resources that are available on the physical server, computing power that can be valuable is just left to sit idle for long periods of time. As a result, it is important to use the available resources as it can reduce both IT expenses and time.
When investigating the virtualization options for New Jersey colocation, there are many things to consider. You have to see if the virtualization vendor offers effective solutions that bridge the gaps found in most traditional branch networking offerings.
Further, issues with private clouds, network automation, and security need to be considered.
New Jersey is becoming highly adaptable when it comes to virtualization.
Companies like Nuage Networks are evolving and extending their SDN (software-defined networking) network automation benefits to cloud-hosted data.
According to Sunil Khandekar, Nuage Networks’ CEO, the company simplifies network services delivery and consumption by extending SDN outside of data centers with policy-based automation.
Customers are starting to look towards more dynamic and programmable network automation that meets their unique business needs. By eliminating cloud-based constraints, Nuage Networks VNS has taken a significant step forward. So service providers can now provide networking services anywhere, anytime, and when required.
Virtualization in Demand
As the demand for New Jersey colocation grows, so does the need for expansion.
As more and more companies in the region, especially in New York City, look for colocation outside the vicinity, companies like Net Access are expanding their infrastructure to meet the demand.
Net Access is now able to provide up to 20kW per cabinet (high density) and offer billing options that are metered or at a flat-rate. According to Alex Rubenstein, data center architect and co-founder, the company built the data center from the ground up to meet the highest specifications. With two decades of experience, Net Access was able to use the methodologies that were effective to build a state of the art data center.
- Power density
- Cooling efficiency
New Jersey colocation hasn’t lost any of its standard ethos of data centers. However, the infrastructure alone isn’t enough. Solutions have to not only be robust; they also need to be adaptable.
