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

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.

HDOT Cx in the Realm of Great Ideas: Part 3

Posted by Kayla Poole on Oct 5, 2018 9:32:49 AM

Leave it to Dilbert to remind us that the collective human effort known as corporate doesn’t always generate the best ideas when it comes to your data center.  Not to worry: Server Technology’s data center power distribution units, from single phase to three phase PDU(s), always have your best interests in mind.

Sometimes, the road less traveled proves to be the better route. That’s certainly proven to be the case with Server Technology’s series of 3 phase PDUs.  Once it was a less common, new approach to power distribution in the data center, now three phase PDU(s) sales have spiked over the past three years.

On the Benefits of Alternating Phase

We’ve extolled the virtues of single phase 60A power distribution to the rack.  But there are still may situations in which a three phase deployment is required to power the needs of racks that consume 12kW or more.  In other words, situations that begin with ‘high’ and end with ‘density.’

Single vs. Three Phase Power Distribution - Know the Difference

Posted by RJ Tee on Nov 17, 2017 10:59:00 AM

Originially Posted Jan 30, 2017 - Updated March 7, 2018

Electricity is the single most important resource in a data center, as it’s needed for powering every system — from the servers on the floor to the lights overhead.  Often the differences between a single phase PDU and a three phase PDU are not as complicated as they may seem, and even more often a 3 phase PDU is the right fit.
