Micro data centers garner macro hype and little latency

LAS VEGAS — The large growth of data in many organizations is piquing IT interest in edge computing.

Edge computing is a process that places data processing closer to the data sources and its end users to reduce latency, and micro data centers are one way to achieve that. Micro data centers, also called edge data centers, are typically modular devices that house all infrastructure elements, from servers and storage to uninterruptible power supply and cooling. As data centers receive a flood of information from IoT devices, the two concepts took center stage for IT pros at Gartner’s data center conference last week in Las Vegas.

“As we start to have billions of things that are expecting instantaneous response and generating 4k video, the traffic is such that it doesn’t make sense to take all of that and shove it into a centralized cloud,” said Bob Gill, a research vice president at Gartner.

Gill compared the importance of edge to the effect that U.S. president Dwight D. Eisenhower’s highway system had on declining communities in the Midwest. Towns that were otherwise defunct of commerce could easily connect to cities with more promise. Similarly, organizations can place a micro data center in whichever location will maximize its value: an office, warehouse, factory floor or colocation facility.

“If you build the infrastructure based only on the centralized cloud models, data centers and colocation facilities without thinking about the edge, we’re going to find ourselves in three to four years with suboptimal infrastructure,” Gill said.

Edge computing enables data to be processed closer to its source.

A growing market

The market for micro data centers is still small, but it’s growing quickly. By 2021, 25% of enterprise organizations will have deployed a micro data center, according to Gartner.

If you build the infrastructure based only on the centralized cloud models … we’re going to find ourselves in three to four years with suboptimal infrastructure.
Bob Gillresearch vice president, Gartner

Some organizations are ahead of the edge computing game. Frank Barrett, IT operations director for Spartan Motors in Charlotte, Mich., inherited multiple data centers from a company acquisition. Now, the company has two primary data centers in Michigan and Indiana, and three smaller, micro data centers in Nebraska. All of the data centers currently have traditional hub-and-spoke networking infrastructure, but Barrett is considering improving the networks to better support the company’s edge data centers. He is currently in the process of moving to one provider for all of the company’s services, as well as updating switches, routers and firewalls throughout the enterprise.

“Latency is a killer,” Barrett said. “We’ve got a lot of legacy systems that people in different locations need access to. It can be a nightmare for those remote locations, regardless of how much bandwidth I throw between sites.”

Other organizations interested in adopting this technology have a choice between three types of micro data center providers. Infrastructure providers offer a one-stop shop with a single vendor for all hardware. Facilities specialists are often hardware-agnostic and provide a range of modular options, but they may require separate hardware. Regional providers are highly focused in a given region, providing strong local customer service. But a smaller business base can lead to less stability for those providers, with a higher risk of acquisitions and mergers, said Jeffrey Hewitt, a research vice president at Gartner.

One data center engineer at an audit company for retail and healthcare services is interested in the facilities provider approach because his company has a dedicated, in-house IT team to handle the other aspects of a data center. The engineer requested anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak to the media.

“With the facilities [option], you can install whatever you want,” he said. “Most offices have a main distribution facility, so they already have a circuit coming in, cooling in place and security. We don’t need any of that; it’d just be a dedicated rack for the micro data center.”

Micro data centers, not micro problems

Since micro data centers are often in a different physical location than a company’s traditional data center, IT needs to ensure that the equipment is secure, reliable and able to operate without constant repairs, said Daniel Bowers, a research director at Gartner. Industrial edge data centers in particular need to ruggedize the equipment so that it can withstand elements such as excessive vibrations and dust.

The distributed nature of micro data centers means that management is another concern, said Steven Carlini, senior director of data center global solutions at Schneider Electric, an energy management provider based in France.

“You don’t want to dispatch service to thousands of sites; you want the notifications that you get to be very specific,” he said. “Hopefully you can resolve an issue without sending someone on site.”

Vendor lock-in is a concern, particularly with all-in-one providers such as Dell EMC, HPE and Hitachi. It’s important to choose the right vendor from the start, which can be overwhelming due to an oversaturated market. The reality is that micro data centers have been around for years. At last year’s conference, Schneider Electric and HPE unveiled the HPE Micro Datacenter, but Schneider Electric has offered micro data centers for at least three years prior, for instance. This year, the company introduced Micro Data Center Xpress, which allows customers or partners to configure IT equipment before installing the system.

Hewitt recommends a four-step process to choose a micro data center vendor: Identify the requirements, score the vendors based on strengths and weaknesses, use those to create a shortlist and negotiate a contract with at least two comparable vendors.

Why open network systems are so difficult to find

Andrew Lerner, an analyst with Gartner, has seen increased interest from Gartner clients in open network systems since the beginning of the “SDN craze” four or five years ago. Lerner said although openness is widely preferred, it falls on a spectrum — one that is complicated by marketing claims from leading network vendors.

Most vendors offer closed, proprietary products, where openness boils down to either support for Border Gateway Protocol or to a published API. At the controller layer, Ethernet fabrics don’t interoperate, and multichassis link aggregation groups aren’t supported across vendors.

When it comes to open network systems, Lerner said proprietary network systems will continue to exist in most enterprises for the foreseeable future. He cautioned network professionals about claims that a proprietary feature is the only way to solve a requirement and to be wary of standards.

Professionals need to be careful of proprietary standards that inhibit interoperability. In many cases, it may be best to simply ask a networking vendor about its level of support for open network systems, such as third-party software or management with another vendor’s automation platform, and discount unqualified claims.

The benefits of security analytics and operations

Jon Oltsik, an analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group Inc. in Milford, Mass., said he sees security operations analytics platform architecture (SOAPA) catching on since he first began writing about it a year ago. ESG research indicated that 21% of enterprises are beginning to integrate security operations technologies and to consider the creation of a security operations architecture a priority. An additional 50% of respondents were somewhat active in this field.

According to Oltsik, the move to SOAPA is driven by a variety of factors in IT departments, including goals of better identifying and communicating risk to the business, automating manual processes and overcoming lags in incident response time.

Oltsik suggested enterprises, together with the government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology, need to partner to create common standards for SOAPA. In Oltsik’s view, standards would increase technology options, allowing chief information security officers to, for example, add security analytics in one year and endpoint detection response tools the next, even as they improve innovation and increase security efficacy.

Additionally, he said SOAPA would help to create a global sense of community in the cybersecurity industry, with professionals trained on a common security architecture.

Changing up your Ansible playbook

Ivan Pepelnjak, writing in ipSpace, took a look at making changes to an Ansible playbook. In a previous article, Pepelnjak wrote about a playbook he uses to collect Secure Shell keys and the tedium of having to write ansible-playbook path-to-playbook every time to run the collection. Because Ansible playbooks are YAML documents, which use # to start comments, he reasoned that by adding a shebang character sequence, he could convert the YAML document into a script.

From there, Pepelnjak used a Bash shell to execute the file. First, he entered chmod+x playbook to make the playbook executable and found the path using “which ansible-playbook.” Lastly, he recommended adding a symbolic link to the playbook in one of the directories along the search path. At the end of the process, the Ansible playbook became executable just like other Linux commands.
