It’s a fact we know all too well. Data centers consume a lot of power – and demand is only growing. In a world rightly concerned about climate change, growing energy requirements can be a liability. Kevin Hagen of Iron Mountain explains how asking the right questions of your data center provider can turn a potential sustainability liability into an opportunity.
Thanks to 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. That’s according to a new report from Vertiv that walks readers through a breakthrough in energy efficiency that has the potential to reduce power losses over a wide load range, working to optimize CAPEX and OPEX.
How can understanding power consumption lead to a more efficient data center? The team at Raritan aims to answer that very question in a new report that explores power monitoring and metering in data centers.
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.
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.
Lead-acid batteries have been the go-to for default backup power for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). But the tides may be turning with the growing popularity of lithion-ion batteries. A new report from Vertiv explores how the lithium-ion battery has reached a stage of maturity that is can be considered as a viable replacement for the lead-acid battery in UPS applications.
Lithium-ion batteries have emerged as a viable alternative to lead-acid batteries, and a growing number of users are evaluating this technology for UPS applications in mission-critical environments. Download the new report from Vertiv that explores how lithium-ion batteries have reached a stage of maturity where they can be considered as a viable replacement for lead-acid batteries in UPS applications.
Tim Mirick, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Sabey Data Centers, explores Green Grid’s Power Usage Efficiency within the data center industry. Greater facility efficiency and data center PUE are largely tied to colocation TCO.
Peter Panfil, Vice President of Global Power Sales at Vertiv, explores the ins and outs of data center power utilization and ways to avoid excess capacity and cut down on costs while driving up revenue.
