Data Centre Operation Definition
A data center operation defines all the processes and workflow that are implemented within a data center. This comprises of non-computing and computing processes, which are specific to a data center environment or a data center facility. The data center operations include all automated and manual processes necessary to maintain the operation of the data center. Agility, efficiency, and stability are considered as the most important data center IT infrastructure goals.
The best practices of data center operations include simple processes such as incident monitoring to complicated tasks such as removing underutilized servers and mapping network connections. Additionally, with the growing acceptance of virtualization across data center environment implies that the physical infrastructure of data centers is now migrating to the cloud. Due to which, people play a critical role in the successful operation of data centers.For a smooth data center operation, the following should be considered:
The IT infrastructure monitoring tools should be used effectively, as they provide insights about the capacity use, access attempts, bottlenecks and much more.
The rack-level capacity should be regulated, as servers differ widely in the measurement of power drawn and utilized, which directly influences the power consumed by each rack.
The best practices of security systems should be implemented and utilized to keep away from attackers and threats.
The IT assets should be managed properly and securely for the smooth functioning of data center operations.
Establishing a change management system is critical to the future of the operations of data centers.

Hyper Converged Infrastructures (HCI) brings non-disruptive scaling, reduced complexity, and other benefits, but it requires a stronger data-protection strategy because hyper convergence brings new vulnerabilities. Hyper converged systems are a perfect target-one unique system to encrypt with a built-in replication to spread the malware. For smaller companies with relatively few virtual...
