Customers can buy data center space in a number of ways. One of the most popular is colocation, tenants buy space by the rack, cabinet or cage. Larger requirements typically use the wholesale data center model, in which a tenant leases a finished suite of “turn-key” raised-floor space. The dividing lines between the two have blurred in recent years, which wholesale providers pursuing smaller deals while colo specialists add suites to their offerings. Both retail colocation providers and companies selling wholesale data center space are pushing into new markets, extending these IT outsourcing services to new audiences.
In a clear signal of its growing ambitions in the colocation market, Digital Realty has unveiled PlatformDIGITAL, a broad initiative to sharpen its focus on problem-solving for enterprise customers retooling their IT infrastructure.
The impact of data center outages cannot be underestimated. Stream Data Centers Engineering Director Kevin Rosen explores ways to ensure data center resilience.
The trend of more power sources generating more carbon dioxide can’t be sustained indefinitely. Download the new paper from Vertiv that explores how with technology advancements and components such as gallium nitride (GaN), that enable ultra-high 98% efficiency and improved power densities, power loss can be reduced up to 50% compared to 96% efficient rectifiers.
With an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), you have made a significant investment in power protection for your operations, so it doesn’t make sense to risk that investment on batteries that may not work when needed most. This white paper from Vertiv highlights the critical role of the battery within single-phase UPS systems and discusses the options for ensuring power and business continuity, especially as IT networks increase in size and complexity and/or become more dispersed.
The speed of disruption and the current data-surge cycle continues to demand transformation in the data-center industry. Download this white paper from Vertiv that addresses those questions and provides clarity on the specific benefits that PFM data centers can offer over traditional construction techniques — benefits that could eventually see PFM shift from being an alternative and disruptive technology to becoming the default option for new data center capacity in the future.
Today, the technology exists to revolutionize the way distributed IT sites are managed and maintained. Download the new paper from Vertiv that outlines how connectivity, cloud computing, big data and mobile applications can work together to enable a new service paradigm for remote sites that increases visibility, reduces downtime and supports optimization of these vital IT resources.
Data center managers are continuously faced with the challenge of providing increased levels of power in subsequently reduced areas of space. Download the new white paper from Raritan that addresses how power monitoring solutions can be effectively used to meet these demands, while simultaneously delivering an IT environment that is able to achieve evolving business, usage, regulatory, and financial goals.
