The energy footprint taken up by data centers will certainly increase as our reliance increases on artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things, and 5G. Another factor driving even more data use is that the world’s population will continue to increase, necessitating more devices, connectivity and more. Get the new paper that discusses what power providers are currently offering in key data center markets, what data centers are doing to be as efficient as possible, and how data center customers can support sustainability.
Sustainability is now a top-of-mind issue in data center construction and management, as cloud computing and digital transformation fuel the world’s growing thirst for processing power. Get the new report from Vertiv that explores the future of the sustainable data center and its impact on the industry.
The volume of energy the data industry uses positions it to be a leader in promoting renewable energy and a series of resource efficiencies that can lessen the industry’s environmental impact. This white paper from QTS delves into how data centers and the colocation industry can move us toward a more sustainable future.
Clean uninterruptible conditioned power is one of a data center’s most critical elements which can have the most immediate impact if any issues occur. This white paper from Powerside examines the equipment, operational characteristics and conditions that can influence various points in the data center power chain, which ultimately can the impact the power quality and operation of the IT equipment.
It takes a tremendous amount of energy and often copious amounts of water to power and cool any data center. In fact, data centers contribute to industry’s consumption of 45% of all available clean water. Get the new report from Aligned Energy that highlights how the company ramped up soft water and water management to save a total of 24 million gallons of water annually at its Phoenix data center.
High physical density and high power density go “hand in hand” when it comes to the data center. 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. Get the new white paper from Server Technology that gives the reasons why this is a cost-effective alternative for many applications.
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.
In a world rightly concerned about climate change, growing energy requirements can be a liability. But with a few actionable steps, data center decision makers can use their energy purchasing power to be part of the solution. The new report explores these three questions to ask your data center provider about their energy consumption.
A new report from Anord Mardix explores how new multi-circuit metering systems (MCMS) can provide advanced metering capabilities at a lower cost. In this whitepaper, the firm looks at the evolution of metering and where the technology and market stand today, discusses the benefits and best-practices associated with metering deployment in a variety of data center environments, focuses on key device attributes and why they matter, and more.
If your company has a need to establish localized IT resources, you may be thinking of investing in and deploying multiple IT footprints in remote locations, as part of a distributed computing or edge network. In the past five years, lithium-ion batteries have come into use as a stored energy source in traditional data centers. Download the new white paper in which Vertiv looks at how these types of batteries can also be used to support single-phase UPS systems in remote mission-critical environments and edge data centers.
