Data center energy usage has been increasing dramatically, and the trend isn’t stopping. Delivering lower emissions and the option of longer run times, fast-start natural gas generators can provide electricity when data center operators need it. Download a new white paper from INNIO that highlights how growing data center electricity demand has paved the way for a new generation of data center solutions and data center power strategies.
Today, colocation providers like EdgeConneX are working with leading cloud and IT service providers to bring their solutions to the edge, deployed in close proximity to enterprises, so they can easily access secure, local connectivity to the cloud for any and all of their workloads. Download the new white paper from EdgeConnex exploring edge computing for the cloud that offers an in-depth look at what factors have driven the cloud to the mainstream, the challenges to enterprise cloud adoption, security concerns, spend, the benefits of an integrated cloud solution and more.
A new report from QTS asserts there is a critically important role for the intermediary who enables internet networks and content networks to exchange traffic — the user and the content to connect — enabling data exchange. Download the new white paper today that explores how companies like QTS can help the industry proliferate the number of buildings where internet and content networks can exchange traffic and do so in a neutral and open way.
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.
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.
In the era of the hybrid cloud, data and applications are scattered across many locations, including on-premises, colocation facilities, and public cloud services. To enable digital data-driven business strategies, hyperconnected data centers are essential. Download the new webcast from CoreSite, to learn how to implement hyperconnected data centers for digital transformation.
Should you still be in the data center business?
