As usage of the cloud expands, cloud data centers will need to be able to accommodate a wide range of services including not only office applications but also on-premises services and in the future, the Internet of Things (IoT). To meet these needs, it requires the ability to simultaneously handle multiple demands for data storage, networks, numerical analysis, and image processing from various users This paper introduces a Resource Disaggregated Platform that will make it possible to perform computation by allocating devices from a resource pool at the device level and to scale up individual performance and functionality. By using standard conventional hardware and software resources to build these disaggregated computer systems, it is possible to deliver faster, more powerful, and more reliable computing solutions effectively that will meet growing customer demand for performance and flexibility. © 2015, NEC Mediaproducts.

To help mitigate the effects of global warming, efforts are underway today to reduce the impact of modern society on the environment. Information technology is expected to play a critical role in helping to minimize energy use and conserve resources. Currently, with cloud-oriented approaches and centralization of IT equipment into data centers, progress in IT capabilities is accelerating. This paper introduces some examples of NEC's R&D into highly efficient cooling technology using phase-change cooling system - which helps solve the problem of excessive power consumption by air-conditioning systems in data centers, while ensuring that the center continues to operate efficiently.

The global warming issue has resulted in the social need to save electrical power in order to reduce the load on the global environment that grows daily. This paper introduces actual case studies from NEC's unique R&D of high-efficiency rack cooling technologies for the IT equipment installed at data centers. The proposed solutions will increase the rack densities and decrease the power consumptions for cooling. © 2015, NEC Mediaproducts. All rights reserved.

Enterprise IT system operation conditions have changed significantly since the cloud computing era began. In order to deal with the service style by which users access services and ICT resources as and when required, integration and centralization of IT systems have been accelerating. MasterScope is a business operation and management software suite that has been developed via NEC's accumulated and proven expertise and advanced technologies. It implements the optimization of the entire system administration cost by automating and visualizing the IT system, which has tended to become more complicated and larger scale. This paper discusses how MasterScope implements the cost-effective integration and management with the system administration. It also introduces new functions for NEC Cloud IaaS and the NEC cloud platform services. © 2015, NEC Mediaproducts. All rights reserved.

NEC has developed a "micro-modular server" featuring high integration and power saving and a "phase change cooling unit" featuring a local cooling technology that is able to provide natural cooling without using electrical power for the data centers. Of the various newly developed technologies packaged with these products, this paper focuses on the power saving, high density and operations management technologies that contribute to a reduction in the total cost of ownership (TCO) of data centers. Various innovative features of the products are also discussed. © 2015, NEC Mediaproducts. All rights reserved.
