High physical density and high power density go “hand in hand” when it comes to the data center. That’s according to a new report from Server Technology that contends to maximize both without having to pay for specialty infrastructure, many data centers have found it attractive to deploy 415V 3-phase AC power to the rack.
In the new industry brief, “5G, Smart Cities, and Edge: The IOT in Our Lives,” Server Technology discusses the IoT, its relationship to Smart Cities and 5G wireless, and how IoT, Smart Cities, and 5G will require remotely managed intelligent power to deliver on the promises of better information and control, resulting in improved lifestyles and greater efficiency.
Just a few years ago, the idea of using 3-Phase power distribution at the equipment cabinet would have amazed — and amused — data center managers and employees . But today, according to a new report from Server Technology, there are several simple facts within the data center environment that have created demand for 3- Phase power in the equipment cabinet.
Ed Spears, Product Marketing Manager, Eaton Critical Power Solutions Division, highlights the benefits and changing reputation of lithium-ion UPS batteries in the data center and colocation industry.
There are two major challenges facing the data industry today. A new report from Nortek describes these hurdles are finite water and power resources. A new white paper explores a new data center cooling method called the StatePoint Liquid Cooling (SPLC)4 system from Nortek Solutions, and highlights a case study in Singapore.
The data center industry is on the lookout for ways to better meet society’s demand for “constant connectivity, content delivery, and a myriad of business and personal necessities.” That’s according to a new special report from Data Center Frontier in partnership with Microgrid Knowledge and distributer energy leader Enchanted Rock that explores the growing symbiotic relationship between microgrids and data centers.
Marc Bowman, Multi-Circuit Metering Systems (MCMS) Product General Manager for Anord Mardix, delves into the factors that distinguishes MCM systems. An advanced MCMS approach makes use of the capabilities already built in to MCMS meters and then overlays sophisticated software and analytics on top to provide a robust view of the entire electrical landscape of a data center.
Over the last decade, electrical metering has become “key” for data center management. That’s according to a new Anord Mardix report that explores the potential for optimizing data center power management with advanced multi-circuit monitoring systems. A new report from Anord Marix explores how data center power management can work toward your advantage utilizing advanced multi-circuit monitoring systems.
Andy Banks, Director of Databar Sales (North America) for Anord Mardix, explores in detail how the Busway can efficiently and effectively distribute power throughout a data center environment. By designing safety directly into the components being installed on live busway, operators can minimize risks associated with busway installation and maintenance and prevent electrical accidents.
Phill Lawson-Shanks, CIO and Sustainability Committee Chair at Aligned Energy hones in on sustainable data centers, and what a “new breed” of data centers focused on energy efficiency will look like.
