Since its introduction within the automotive industry in the 1930’s through to its current widespread use in data centers, busway offers a high density, flexible power distribution solution for many applications. Get the new report from Anord Mardix that explores a fresh approach — integral coupling — which utilizes a unique male and female coupling system that is integral to the individual busway sections.
Get the 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 track 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.
Get the new white paper, by Chatsworth Products (CPI) and Innovative Research Inc. (IRI), that provides an overview of the key steps for optimizing the cooling performance of air-cooled data centers. This includes employing a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling software tool for analysis and exercising airflow management best practices that will help data center managers understand the what and how of optimizing airflow and, consequently, cooling performance.
In the competitive and highly regulated banking industry, demands on financial institutions come not only from customers, but from regulators and shareholders. In fact, the financial services sector is one of the most heavily regulated industries in the nation. Get the new report that shows how a collaborative partnership with Stream Data Centers gave one of the nation’s largest commercial banks the security and control of a standalone facility and the ability to specify the design, build and ongoing operation of a dedicated data center building that incorporated the most critical elements of the existing customer-built facility.
Uptime and performance are critical for data centers, but they can not continue to rely on diesel generators for reliable backup power, especially as they respond to price pressure and environmental sensibilities. Download the new special report from Microgrid Knowledge and Data Center Frontier that explores why microgrid use is on the rise and how microgrids improve resiliency, uptime, and a data center’s environmental profile.
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 Aligned 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.
