The Role of Efficient and Intelligent Power in the Smart City

Posted by RJ Tee on Apr 15, 2019 11:31:49 AM

In our previous post on the smart city, and as explained in Marc Cram’s latest whitepaper, ‘Smart Cities Run on Smart Power,’ we identify the contributing factors in the development of smart city technology.  It is the advent of the microprocessors and microchips that collect the massive quantity of intelligence that enables the city.  In this blog we will shift our attention to another contributor: energy efficiency measures in the field, at the data center, and within racks that are supported by data center environmental monitoring and intelligent PDU(s).

A Smart City Overview

Posted by RJ Tee on Mar 29, 2019 2:41:46 PM

A cooperative effort between city governments and private enterprise is leading cities to adopt the goal of becoming ‘smart cities.’  Marc Cram’s new whitepaper ’Smart Cities Run on Smart Power,’ connects these initiatives to the data centers that support them, and ultimately to the 3 phase PDU(s) and single phase PDU(s) that power them.   The promise of the smart city is to provide real-time monitoring and control of the IT systems that govern the municipal infrastructure.  The result yields many benefits,  including lower energy use, reduced pollution, improved public safety, and increased quality of life for the citizens and visitors of the smart city.

All About the New 3-Phase Power Video

Posted by Linda Kennedy on Mar 4, 2019 2:29:26 PM

In Server Technology’s new video, “Take a New Look at 3-Phase Power Distribution,” the newly organized Server Tech Theater tackles the subject of 3-phase PDU power distribution to the rack and, more specifically, where and when you should and should not reach for an alternating phase rack mount PDU.

The Dynamic Data Center: 10 Keys to Designing for Flexibility

Posted by Kayla Poole on Feb 18, 2019 9:48:42 AM

In our last blog supporting the new “Flexibility and Sustainability for the Dynamic Data Center” white paper by ServerTech’s own Marc Cram, we discussed the relationship between Moore’s Law and the resulting increased availability of data and its immediate consumption.  In the first blog in this series, we talked about PUE and its contribution to the sustainable data center.  For this last blog, we will shift our attention to the mission-critical facility itself and discuss flexible features that support sustainable design.

The Dynamic Data Center: Today’s Growing Demands

Posted by Kayla Poole on Feb 14, 2019 9:31:10 AM

In our last blog, we addressed the role of PUE and its relationship to flexible, sustainable data centers.  If you missed it, you can follow this link here to get caught up on the series.  Today, we are going to turn our attention to some of the new challenges facing data center operators, specifically around the seemingly continuous propagation of technology and data.

The Dynamic Data Center: Driving Lower PUE

Posted by Kayla Poole on Feb 6, 2019 11:02:16 AM

In support of the new Marc Cram white paper, “Flexibility and Sustainability for the Dynamic Data Center,” we are going to be rolling out a three-part blog series that supports some of the key data center themes covered in the document.  The paper itself, a copy of which can be found here, is a mission-critical state of the union address that calls attention to the challenges facing today’s dynamic data center operators.

A Case for DC Power Distribution, Part 2

Posted by Josh Schaap on Jan 31, 2019 9:59:57 AM

In our previous post, we started a conversation about the topic of DC power distribution and 48v DC power in the data center.  The struggle to improve efficiency within computing facilities began long before the chipset had been invented, back in the ‘war of the currents’ in the 1880s.

A Case for DC Power Distribution, Part 1

Posted by RJ Tee on Jan 28, 2019 1:10:05 PM

While we touched on the topic in this 2017 blog, we wanted to spend a little more time exploring the concept of DC (or direct current) power distribution in the data center.  For years, it has been an esoteric blip on the radar of critical power distribution, hovering just outside the realm of ‘interested, just not today.’  We would like to revisit the topic because a strange thing has been happening—quietly, mind you--over the last couple of years:  designers and large data center operators are actually starting to implement solutions that utilize DC power.
