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.

Need a Crystal Ball to Predict your Future Rack Power Requirements?

Posted by RJ Tee on Jan 7, 2019 4:25:08 PM

 

Updated January 08, 2019 - Originally posted November 9, 2018

Are you faced with the challenge of selecting a rack PDU to meet not only your existing but also future power needs? Whether it’s for a refurbishment, new build, or retro-fit, when making such a purchase, you need to ensure you are maximizing your investment for the long-term - yes? But how does a data center manager feel secure in the knowledge that he has all potential future requirements covered? Short of gazing into a crystal ball and asking for some otherworldly guidance, there has been no simple answer to the question, ‘what will my future power needs be?’…until now.

It’s a Server Tech Christmas, Charlie Brown

Posted by RJ Tee on Dec 25, 2018 3:33:21 PM

The staff here at Server Tech wanted to spend a little more time spreading some Christmas cheer, so we turned to this iconic comic strip for inspiration. Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang are so much a part of the US Christmas culture. Likewise, Vince Guaraldi’s A Charlie Brown Christmas album, and the ‘Linus and Lucy’ theme in particular, has been the soundtrack for many a family Christmas gathering.
