The busway. From starting within the automotive industry in the 1930’s and now evolving to widespread use in data centers, the technology has made its place. A new report from Anord Mardix focused on busways aims to contextualize that evolution and present a fresh approach for 2020 and further. According to the company, “busway offers a high density, flexible power distribution solution for many applications.”
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.
The amount of power used by each data center rack continues to rise for enterprise users, according to new research from AFCOM, the industry association for data center professionals.
In the market of 2020, today’s data center manager is responsible for not only overseeing capacity planning management, but also ascertaining the capability to determine, drive and report on energy efficiency. A new white paper from Server Technology defines 10 things every data center manager should know about power and identifies 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.
Most every Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) equipment rack used to store compute, storage or network equipment requires a rack-mount Power Distribution Unit (PDU) or power strip to distribute power to equipment. A new report from Chatsworth Products explores how to decide which PDUs and power strips are right for your enterprise.
The ability to remotely monitor and manage power data from the rack and device level is boosting demand for intelligent power distribution units. In the edition of Voices of the Industry, Ashish Moondra, Senior Product Manager, Power, Electronics & Software, at Chatsworth Products, explores the value of intelligent power distribution units in colocation.
