The speed of disruption and the current data surge cycle continues to demand transformation in the data center industry. The response to these demands bring prefabricated modular (PFM) data centers to the arena – delivering low-risk, high-value implementations with the added benefits of faster delivery and easier on-site assembly. Download the new white paper from Vertiv provides clarity on the specific benefits that PFM data centers can offer to the future of the data center industry.
Formerly known as Emerson Network Power, Vertiv is one of the data center market’s largest vendors for power and cooling solutions. Their acquisition by Platinum Equity Group in 2016 has allowed them to respond to changes in how data centers are built, calling for greater power and cooling requirements while maintaining efficiency.

TMGcore has launched a modular data center platform that uses robots to swap high-density servers immersed in coolant fluid. The OTTO platform is the most ambitious bid yet for a “lights out ” autonomous data center.
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.
The Obama administration launched the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) in 2010 as part of an ambitious effort to push the federal government to modernize its aging data centers, IT systems and cyber practices. Despite the slow and often uneven progress toward modernization, realizing the performance, security and savings goals that have been set in the government IT space is possible. This paper from Vertiv explores what it will require to bring the U.S. government fully into the 21st century.
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.
The speed of disruption and the current data-surge cycle continues to demand transformation in the data-center industry. Download this white paper from Vertiv that addresses those questions and provides clarity on the specific benefits that PFM data centers can offer over traditional construction techniques — benefits that could eventually see PFM shift from being an alternative and disruptive technology to becoming the default option for new data center capacity in the future.
Today, the technology exists to revolutionize the way distributed IT sites are managed and maintained. Download the new paper from Vertiv that outlines how connectivity, cloud computing, big data and mobile applications can work together to enable a new service paradigm for remote sites that increases visibility, reduces downtime and supports optimization of these vital IT resources.
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.
