Prudent Strategies for Data Center Planning
Driven by the need and desire to reduce costs, organizations are faced with a set of decisions
that require analytical scrutiny. Enterprise Architecture A to Z: Frameworks, Business Process
Modeling, SOA, and Infrastructure Technology examines cost-saving trends in architecture
planning, administration, and management.
To establish a framework for discussion, this book begins by evaluating the role of Enterprise
Architecture planning and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) modeling. It provides an
extensive review of the most widely deployed architecture framework models. In particular,
the book discusses The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) and the Zachman
Architectural Framework (ZAF) in detail, as well as formal architecture standards and all four
layers of these models: the business architecture, the information architecture, the solution
architecture, and the technology architecture.
The rst part of the text focuses on the upper layers of the architecture framework, while the
second part focuses on the technology architecture. In this second section, the author presents an
assessment of storage technologies and networking and addresses regulatory and security issues.
Additional coverage includes high-speed communication mechanisms such as Ethernet, WAN
and Internet communication technologies, broadband communications, and chargeback models.
Daniel Minoli has written a number of columns and books on the high-tech industry and has
many years of technical hands-on and managerial experience at top nancial companies and
telecom/networking providers. He brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to
these pages. By reviewing the strategies in this book, CIOs, CTOs, and senior managers are
empowered by a set of progressive approaches to designing state-of-the-art IT data centers.
