Today’s data center has come a long way from being the home of a single mainframe computer. It is a complicated mix of servers, storage, networking, load balancers and other hardware, all running multiple layers of software, keeping each data center manager busy overseeing daily operations. This white paper from Server Technology defines ten things every data center manager should know about power and identifies some key considerations for the data center planner and operator regarding how to simply and reliably power all of the IT hardware in the modern data center.
With the shift of enterprise-owned Information and Communications Technology (ICT) equipment into multi-tenant data center (MTDC)/colocation sites and the anticipated growth of remote/edge sites, basic control of power for remotely located ICT equipment is becoming an important consideration in overall power management strategy. Download a new white paper from Chatsworth Products that explores the most beneficial applications for intelligent rack PDUs with remote power control, defines the key capabilities to require on intelligent rack PDUs with remote power control, and lists additional monitoring and security capabilities that should be considered when selecting intelligent rack PDUs for use in laboratories, in remote/edge sites or when colocating enterprise-owned equipment into MTDCs.
