It is impossible to discuss monitoring power quality without mentioning Data Center Infrastructure Monitoring (DCIM), as well as power monitoring and management systems. The final entry in a special report series highlights the importance of data center infrastructure monitoring to ensuring power quality in today’s colocation facilities.
Our special report series continues with a look at different elements of power quality management (PQM) for today’s data centers, including ground leakage currents, energy efficiency, the evolution of UPS systems, PDU transformers and more.
Recently, just as the cost of other digital devices have come down while becoming more powerful; PQM has also become more sophisticated and intelligent. The result, now PQM is far more cost effective and justifiable, even for smaller data centers. This post continues a new special report series and highlights the ins and outs of power quality management (PQM) for today’s data centers and the influence of power quality on data performance and integrity.
Data center power quality has implications throughout the mission-critical power chain, and can impact the operation of the IT equipment. In this special report series, Data Center Frontier and Powerside examine the key factors in data center power quality.
