3 The search for a secure and highly available data centre. For many organizations, the data centre is absolutely critical to day-to-day activities. But data centres come with their own unique challenges. Power has to be sourced cost-effectively and with an eye toward enviromental responsibility. And data centre technologies are evolving rapidly, often requiring expensive upgrades or replacements. Add to that the escalating costs of security, cooling, connectivity, management and maintenance, and it s easy to understand why a growing number of businesses are deciding whether they should retrofit their existing data centres or switch to co-location or a more managed solution such as virtual data centre or cloud (infrastructure as a service or software as a service). Bell has developed this guide to help you weigh the considerations and choose the way forward that s best for your business. Expansion on an exponential scale Over the next decade, the number of virtual and physical servers worldwide will grow by a factor of 10, the amount of information managed by enterprise data centres will grow by a factor of 50 and the number of files the data centre will have to process will grow by a factor of 75. With all organizations having increasing amounts of data to manage, finding the right data centre solution is growing in importance. Source: 2011 IDC Back to table of contents page 2 of 15

4 What do you expect from your data centre? For most organizations, there are a handful of non-negotiables when it comes to the performance of their data centres. Considering the ways you depend on your data, these may be among the top priorities for you: Maintaining stable, secure power Evolving technologies and changing service requirements affect power and cooling demands. Today s energy costs are substantial, and tomorrow s will be even more significant. According to a 2011 Forrester Research report, power costs will soon account for 70 to 80 percent of operational costs. Finding a way to control those costs is often a significant driver for organizations to move to hosted data centre solutions. Ensuring redundancy and reliability Most data centres have backup options for power in case of outages usually a battery-based uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and diesel generator. It is frequently telling for organizations to measure how often they have to upgrade those assets to ensure they re in line with their data centres changing power requirements. Keeping your data safe - and in Canada Data can be used in powerful ways that transform businesses but it can also add to an organization s risk-management requirements. Privacy has to be protected. Confidential information must be safeguarded. Industry compliancy requirements and Canadian regulations must be met. You need to know if your data has to be stored on Canadian soil. As well, given the constant stream of new developments in IT and physical security, are you confident your data centre and systems are as secure as possible? Back to table of contents page 3 of 15

5 Balancing growth and cost Expand too much or too fast and you risk wasting resources. Limit growth and you risk handcuffing your business. Building brand-new facilities gives you flexibility to customize, making the most of options such as integrating outside air or deep-water cooling. But the high cost of construction makes this a viable option for only the largest enterprises. It can also be difficult to find the right contractor and an appropriate location somewhere secure, safe and with access to reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity. And operating costs often exceed initial capital investment over a facility s lifespan. Forrester Research estimates co-location is 37 percent less expensive than building your own data centre, based on costs over a 15-year period. That climbs to 52 percent less expensive when risk impact is factored in. (Forrester, Build or Co-locate?. 2013) NOTE: Graphic from Forrester PPT also suggested for inclusion. When making a decision, it is essential to thoroughly and realistically assess your organization s long-term resources to sustain a data centre. Managing the upgrade cycle This is one of the biggest challenges for most companies operating their own data centres today. Technology is evolving faster, resulting in shorter upgrade cycles for firewalls, anti-virus solutions, operating systems, application patches and server configurations. Staying on top of new developments and demands can be expensive. It can also involve risks beyond cost, such as disruptions to workflow, equipment damage and data loss during improper shutdowns. As technology becomes more advanced, power density tends to increase, which means that even though devices are getting smaller, they re using more energy. This has a domino effect: cooling and humidity requirements go up, for example, resulting in the need for more servers that need even more power. All of this can increase costs. Over time, the unpredictability this introduces to an organization s operating expenses can become increasingly complex to manage. Back to table of contents page 4 of 15

6 Is hosting an appropriate option for your organization? Moving to a hosted model can be an effective way of offsetting the challenges associated with operating and maintaining your own data centre. If the majority of the following statements seem valid to you, it may be worthwhile to consider hosting. Are you looking to: Address increasing power and cooling requirements? Maximize uptime, availability and redundancy? Keep technology up to date? Strengthen physical and data security? Increase capacity while reducing power costs? Optimize performance across all systems? Re-focus resources on your core business offerings? Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of IT resource management and support? Create a predictable cost model? Reduce operational complexity and risk? Back to table of contents page 5 of 15

7 Key characteristics of a dependable data centre. When you re evaluating a provider s facilities, you ll need to take a close look at the data centre s capabilities, strengths and potential weaknesses. Here are some important questions to ask: What tier ranking is the facility designed to meet? Tier rankings describe the power redundancy safeguards in a data centre according to categories set by an industry body known as the Uptime Institute. Tier 1 facilities have little redundancy. Tier 2 centres have battery rooms that typically provide a few minutes of reserve power before switching to generators. Tier 3 data centres have N+1 configuration, with an additional generator beyond the required backup capacity. They can be maintained concurrently, meaning maintenance can be done without requiring equipment shutdowns. Tier 4 data centres provide 2N redundancy, although this is rarely required as the significant expense for Tier 4 design outweighs the minimal increase in potential uptime. Evaluate your downtime tolerance Tier 2 facilities offer % uptime, while Tier 3 data centres are committed to delivering % uptime. In hours, that amounts to about 22 hours of downtime a year for a Tier 2 facility and about 1.6 hours a year for a Tier 3 facility. Consider the various ways downtime can affect your business in terms of revenue, customer experience or brand image to determine your acceptable downtime threshold. Back to table of contents page 6 of 15

8 What security measures are in place? As hosted data centres share multiple customers, they typically invest in advanced security features including 24 / 7 x 365 on-site guards, mantraps and biometric scanners. Network security is equally critical, so be sure your service provider offers intrusion detection, virtualized firewalls and load balancers, and the ability to monitor lines for traffic. When you re looking to protect your mission-critical applications and data, you re only as strong as your weakest link. That means the security features of the data centre itself are just part of the picture. Find out how much control your potential provider has over the network that will be delivering your hosted data centre services. And ask about managed protection against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, event management and any other security services essential to your business. Will I be able to scale? As your business grows, you ll need more space and scalable capacity. And your data centre should be able to adopt new technologies quickly. Cloud services and fully-managed virtualized environments offer many organizations an opportunity to enhance scalability and refocus key IT resources on revenue generating activities. You may not need these services today, but having your data hosted is usually a long-term decision because moving is expensive and risky. So think beyond your initial contract term and make sure you have room to grow, and some allowance to meet your potential future needs. What audit practices are performed? When you transfer your data and applications to a data centre, you re also transferring compliance responsibilities. If you process consumer cardholder information, it s critical to check for payment card industry (PCI) compliance. Also look for providers who have completed CSAE 3416 and SSAE 16 standards. If you operate under Sarbanes-Oxley legislation in the U.S. you ll want to look for providers who have completed audits such as the CICA 5970 Type II (Canadian equivalent of U.S. SAS 70 Type II). The frequency at which your provider recertifies is also important. Back to table of contents page 7 of 15

9 What kind of power allocation model is being used? Service reliability depends on your provider s ability to measure, monitor and allocate power usage. In an over-subscription power allocation model, a single reading is used for the entire data centre. Unused power from one customer can be resold to another and spikes in power demand from other customers can drain your resources. In extreme situations, this could bring down a customer s environment. In the power reservation model, you get the total capacity you ve paid for, whether or not you use it. You ll always have enough energy to run your systems, and close monitoring ensures the provider can quickly detect and respond to any increases in your demand. This prevents the situation where one customer has the ability to affect another customer s environment. What green initiatives have been incorporated? Integrated sustainable energy technology is good both for your bottom line and the environment. Consider the provider s green record, looking for advancements such as virtualized environments, use of free cooling solutions and heat exchangers. All of these can be reliable, cost-effective alternatives to traditional technologies. Many service providers today aspire to improve their power usage effectiveness (PUE), an industry measure of energy efficiency. A service provider with good PUE will also help you keep your power costs down, today and into the future. How are the facilities connected? The network linking a provider s data centres is a critical component of their offering. Data centres typically process large volumes of traffic, and the network that connects the data centres to each other and to your business needs to sustain those volumes reliably and securely at all times. The physical location of data centres is also important, as providers often deliberately space out their facilities to minimize the risk of a mass disruption. But many data centre applications are sensitive to latency (i.e., delay). The farther your data needs to travel, the more likely it is that delay may become an issue even in short-distance metropolitan networks. Satisfy yourself that the provider s reach will deliver the network speed and quality you need. Back to table of contents page 8 of 15

10 Choosing a provider. Beyond the characteristics of the data centre itself, you also want to be confident in your provider s ability to meet your business needs. Here are some of the more important questions to ask when trying to determine if a particular solution suits your organization: What kind of network does the provider operate? To protect your data and applications from end to end, and to ensure you get the performance and reliability your business needs, you will want to choose a provider whose network supports the level of service you expect from the data centre itself. In addition to the basic day-to-day connectivity required within the data centre and between the data centre and your organization, you also need to be confident the provider s network can handle capacity spikes without increasing latency or risking downtime. What kind of service-level agreements (SLAs) are offered? An SLA that emphasizes uptime indicates a mature data centre service with confidence in its infrastructure. It s also important to ensure that connectivity and the hosted service itself are both covered so you can be assured not only that your data is being well maintained but also that you ll be able to access it when you need to. And ideally, you want a single service provider to be accountable for both the hosting and connectivity SLAs to ensure operational efficiency and single accountability. For maximum protection against downtime and outages, an agreement should include an hour-based percentage penalty for missed service levels. Are professional services available to help me understand my options? One size does not fit all. The right data centre provider will help assess your needs, current capabilities and future plans, and will work with you to find a solution that meets your unique business goals. A provider with a strong professional services organization to advise and support you in defining your needs can be an invaluable asset. Back to table of contents page 9 of 15

11 Can services be scaled quickly and easily? Your needs will evolve and not always in ways you can predict. Look for power and capacity that can be scaled quickly, giving you the energy, space and bandwidth you need to grow your business. Does the provider offer virtual hosting and cloud solutions? Dedicating a server to each application and configuring it to handle peak loads can be extremely inefficient, often resulting in utilization rates of less than 25 percent. Moving your applications to a virtual server farm can help keep costs low and give you the advantage of architectural flexibility. Virtual solutions also scale up quickly and easily without requiring you to invest in any hardware. Large-scale virtualization can also significantly reduce your organization s carbon footprint. Look for a provider equipped with the latest virtual service offerings, such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), which gives you complete control over your capacity and charges you only for the services you use. Does the provider invest continually in infrastructure and cloud capabilities? One of the benefits of moving to a hosted data centre model is taking advantage of new technology. An ideal provider will constantly invest in upgrades and advances for example, by integrating cloud capabilities or adopting the latest innovations in physical and data security. Are costs predictable? Working with a data centre provider will give you access to a sophisticated infrastructure without incurring significant capital costs. Make sure the monthly costs associated with the hosted service are stable and that as part of the offer you also get access to in-house technical expertise. Be mindful of hidden costs Organizations that operate data centres in-house often experience unpredictable costs due to unforeseen maintenance requirements and are sometimes surprised to find their expenditures spiking every three to five years as equipment is replaced and refreshed.
