I think I’m suffering from brain overload, not that I’m trying to defeat the object of learning. I just decided to quantify in this article how much storing data on a cloud server affects us. It’s no small thing I’ve discovered, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. Here at Atlantic, we are operating at always increasing our upper limits of capability, redundant internet service, and backbone connections to make sure that we can provide optimum services in the event of peak loads. Here are 3 articles that allow you to grasp the unseen efforts of data management:

Colocation Communities Are a Match for Cloud » Data Center Knowledge

From – 1 month ago

As more enterprises put their internal servers under scrutiny, they are noticing that legacy enterprise data centers are becoming increasingly ineffective, writes Kevin Dean of Interxion.

Juliana Payson‘s insight:

IDC predicts that the total number of U.S. data centers will fall from 2.94 million in 2012 to 2.89 million in 2016. However, while new data center facilities themselves may be on the decline, the data they house certainly isn’t, given that 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every day, with fewer facilities to house them. This implies that for hosting companies, data management is becoming rather like NASA; failure is not an option. At Atlantic, we benefit from being able to service cloud facilities from our data centers as well as colocation communities, thereby strengthening our overall service to businesses.

Smarter Algorithm Could Cut Energy Use in Data Centers by 35 Percent

From – 2 hours ago

Storing video and other files more intelligently reduces the demand on servers in a data center. New research suggests that data centers could significantly cut their electricity usage simply by st…

Juliana Payson‘s insight:

With the new technology, any individual data center could be expected to save 35 percent in capacity and electricity costs—about $2.8 million a year or $18 million over the lifetime of the center, says Muriel Médard, a professor at MIT’s Research Laboratory of Electronics, who led the work and recently conducted the cost analysis.

Going green is no small issue. Recently, the Carbon Disclosure Project report stated that you can reduce your energy consumption and carbon emissions while saving on IT resources and improving functional efficiency within your business by using cloud computing. Any small effort to reduce energy consumption accumulates significantly, especially on big data with cloud servers. It’s no surprise here that increasing efficiency from the root level of coding can reduce processing requests on servers, and therefore, load demands. offers managed, dedicated hosting, and HIPAA compliant hosting solutions – contact us today for a consultation.
