A standard phrase from any third-grade classroom or a top-rated cooking show states that we shouldn’t have tools on our desks or any appliances on our counter tops that serve only a single purpose. To be clear, anything without multiple functions is a waste of space and time. This same belief should extend to the IT world if we want some of these more leading-edge technologies to gain a foothold, and Correlata believes that is the new trend you’ll see this year.

Up to now, organizations of all sizes have been using a siloed operations model to build out data center infrastructures that serve a specific purpose or run a specific application. This “one tool for one job” has made many of the big, advanced technologies unavailable to small and midsize companies simply because they are not able to justify the cost.

So comes 2019; the year that large organizations embrace the notion of composable infrastructure: a fusion of all those single-use tools under a common control plane, and a resilient, advanced, operationally efficient Swiss Army knife for the data center.

It’ll also be a year of converging concepts that data center infrastructure has, until now, flirted with or struggled to wrap into a single offering until now, thanks to Correlata’s CorreAssess which provides advanced automation of mundane IT tasks and new levels of intelligence that is predictive rather than simply reactive.

Step Away from the Silo


Right now, we treat the core data center, edge, and cloud as very different environments that all need management tools and on-site utilization plans. But a combination of things will happen that will bring these different technologies into one infrastructure.

First, businesses will continue to become more comfortable with on-premise private clouds. They’ll better understand the importance of edge computing and they’ll also better see how the public cloud can help fill the gaps, whether it’s for burst capacity, for specific workloads, or to scale up and down for other needs, such as DevOps.

At the same time, we’ll see faster pipes, better compression and enhanced security, all making this public cloud a more realistic extension of your on-premises infrastructure. It will allow the edge and the core to start operating as federated systems and burst out to the cloud when capacities require it.

Resources will also be managed with advanced intelligence and by policies that determine which workloads need what resources and where it’s best for them to reside to optimize I/O operations and costs, as well as to guarantee SLAs. Correlata’s CorreAssess One Time Assessment Platform is aimed to take a load off administrators.

Can we get there in 2019?

Not all the way, but we’ll see major steps toward sharing some of the common tools across the various locations where previously you’d consider them compute islands.  With IoT adoption on the rise, 80 billion connected devices by 2020 and over 165 zettabytes of data generated per year, we’ll see vendors making great strides to ensure advances in composable infrastructure serve this unique nature of IoT.

Technology moves fast, and those with deep pockets will always have greater access to the best technology. But as we move into 2019, the increased accessibility of these cutting-edge innovations will lead to greater efficiencies and better outcomes for IT and business.

Today, more than ever, IT systems are essential for economic and social development. Services such as electricity and water supply are based on IT systems. The complexity and operation of these systems, combined with potential risks from various external entities, represent threats not only to the owners of the companies and the service providers, but to society as a whole.

Organizations incur operating and servicing costs of the various IT systems (in the cloud or in any other format) in order to minimize these risks. These expenses can range from hundreds and up to millions of dollars per year, and the appropriate hardware/software solutions are expected to mature in a few years at best.

And until then? Correlata is proud to reveal a comprehensive solution that is based on a unique algorithm developed by the company, which has received a patent in the United States. This algorithm has succeeded in solving the difficulty and challenge faced by large IT organizations on a daily basis – the absence of a single platform that integrates and provides a snapshot of the state of the IT system and its investments in IT infrastructures, to the company’s business units, in a simple and pro-active manner.

The time has come…

After five years of developing this unique algorithm, which constitutes a breakthrough in the transparency of information about that complex infrastructure world, Correlata is taking on the market, and facing the challenge which no company has been willing to tackle to date – the ability to collect information from complex and cumbersome IT infrastructures (the IT Maze) and make it accessible. Managers, internal and external auditors and/or anyone without a technological background, who wants and needs to understand the infrastructure in depth, can do so easily, for every parameter. The uniqueness of the solution is that it makes the infrastructure accessible to the business layer in a simple, clear and manageable manner. It is based on a user-friendly dashboard that helps decision makers achieve the transparency they expect.

Ofer Laksman, Correlata CEO: “The unique system provides the ability to monitor IT operations from the manager’s point of view and enables the manager, for the first time, to evaluate the use of technology and its business value by linking the infrastructure layer to the business layer, regardless of where it is located in the data center – locally, in the cloud or any other combination.”

Laksman adds: “We call this kind of out-of-the-box, innovative concept the Correlata Transformation Value Chain. This concept allows us, for the first time, to present the full picture of the infrastructure – both from an operational perspective and from a business perspective. This creates a kind of effective communication between the various departments and levels in the organization, while achieving a significant. Savings in storage costs, streamlining the deployment of IT and supporting systems, exposing and presenting risks related to the day-to-day management and operation of the IT infrastructure, as well as alerting about and exposing core systems in the organization that do not conform to the established IT policy, in terms of service availability (SLA).

Using the Correlata Transformation Value Chain solution will help the organization to meet its business objectives better, more qualitatively and more cost effectively.

The Correlata Transformation Value Chain solution provides the organization with the following added value benefits:

  • The ability to understand, for the first time, the business value that the business layer receives from the infrastructure layer.
  • Extensive reduction in inefficient IT infrastructures that support the business layer, downsizing the existing system by up to 30%. This is in addition to the savings in electricity, floor space and pollution – which make the organization a greener one.
  • A unique dashboard for the management layer, enabling management members to view and see in real time the level of efficiency in each of the organization’s IT centers.
  • Shut down and disconnection of redundant infrastructure, that does not contribute any business value, leading to a reduction in licensing costs, as well as reducing organizational exposure to a backdoor for cyber hackers.
  • In any decision to migrate to a new site and/or cloud, be it partial or hybrid, our solution can first of all help understand the “real” size of the IT system for that needs to be acquired in the cloud, in order to avoid unexpected expenses and, of course, avoid duplicating the inefficiency that may already exist in that same array. These issues are not always transparent or clear to decision makers who often lack a rich technological background.

A data center migration is any movement of data center assets from one location to another—perhaps moving to a colocation facility, or within the same data center, or transitioning applications and services to a hybrid/cloud environment. Regardless, data center migrations require careful planning and execution, yet before any details of a plan is penciled out, it remains vital to assess the used and un-used data center resources –access a One Time Assessment for these resources through the Correlata CoreAsses Platform Thereafter, you may follow these seven rules to ensure a successful move:

  1. Appoint a Manager In addition to data center managers and operators, IT teams, facilities teams, network engineering teams, server teams, and infrastructure teams all may be involved during the migration. A leader is necessary to divide roles and responsibilities, ensure accountability, and serve as the main point of contact.
  2. Focus on Relevancy Determine what information is needed to complete the move successfully and make sure it is provided to your stakeholders.
  3. Create a Virtual Model Creating a virtual model enables the teams involved to align and ensures that each asset has sufficient space, power, and network capacity. Moving assets virtually is much easier than moving them physically. A virtual model can also uncover potential issues that may be addressed.
  4. Review Capacity Knowing what you plan to move and understanding how your assets are connected, along with estimates based on budgeted and actual power readings, will help determine your space and power needs.
  5. Install Hardware Installing hardware before your data center migration will save time during the actual move and allow you to familiarize yourself with the new space. Installing rail kits, blanking panels, door locks, and card readers can even help to prevent incorrect installations and unauthorized access.
  6. Label Equipment Your labeling system is one of the most critical elements of your data center migration. When your equipment and cabling are not clearly and correctly labeled, you run the risk of hardware being installed improperly, the wrong cables being used, and incorrect connections being made.
  7. Pay Attention to Post-Migration Testing After the move, it may seem like all your hardware is in place, but you won’t know that it’s all working as intended if it’s not tested. Complete the system testing per the manager’s move plan to ensure that all devices and applications have been successfully migrated.

Data center migrations require planning and efficiency. With so many moving parts and people involved, it’s easy for key tasks and minute details to be overlooked. Contact Correlata to review the entire process and identify the resources needed—before, during, and after the migration.
