Three-Phase power distribution at the rack level traditionally means that power was divided into separate branches. Load balancing and cabling can be difficult. Alternating phased power on a per-receptacle basis provides tangible benefits in the form of simplified cabling, better airflow, better load balancing and greater efficiencies. Download the new white paper from Server Technology that outlines one solution to these issues: using an alternating phase PDU. These specially designed PDUs alternate the phased power on a per-outlet basis instead of a per-branch basis.
With the shift of enterprise-owned Information and Communications Technology (ICT) equipment into multi-tenant data center (MTDC)/colocation sites and the anticipated growth of remote/edge sites, basic control of power for remotely located ICT equipment is becoming an important consideration in overall power management strategy. Download a new white paper from Chatsworth Products that explores the most beneficial applications for intelligent rack PDUs with remote power control, defines the key capabilities to require on intelligent rack PDUs with remote power control, and lists additional monitoring and security capabilities that should be considered when selecting intelligent rack PDUs for use in laboratories, in remote/edge sites or when colocating enterprise-owned equipment into MTDCs.
When designing a power protection scheme for data centers, IT and facility managers must ask themselves whether a distributed or centralized backup strategy makes more sense. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question. Download the new white paper from Vertiv that explores the principle of centralized versus distributed bypass and applies it equally to standalone monolithic and integrated-modular UPS architectures.
When complete, the Alligned Ashburn 26-acre 180 MW master-planned data center campus will offer over 1 mm sq. ft. of space. Download a new case study that explores how Aligned constructed a 368,755 square-foot data center and built out the first fully-commissioned 12 MW of data center space, expandable to 60 MW, in less than six months.
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.
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 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.
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.
This case study from Digital Realty explores the potential of easy, cost-efficient connection to carriers for optimal performance and lowest latency, customized connectivity options with the ability to ramp cross-connects up or down, and a scalable, flexible IT environment. Download the new report that explores how direct access to both content delivery networks and operators’ networks is critical to MOBITV’s success.
The right “future-focused fiber solution” can increase flexibility, agility, scalability, ease of deployment and more. Download the new white paper the explores Panduit’s Signature Core Fiber Optic Cabling Systems and their multimode fiber communication capabilities.
