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.Read More
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.

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.Read More

Right now you and your IT staff are in the process of planning your budget for 2015. During this course of action, have you considered investing in a data center power monitoring solution for your business?
A total of 300 federal IT workers recently took the time to grade their departments’ downtime management strategies in a survey conducted by Meritalk, as was reported in a Financial Times article.
The results of the survey were not pretty, indicating that downtime is one of the biggest cyber issues facing the federal government in 2015.
A new study from Research and Markets shows that data center power monitoring technology will continue to be a “go to” power management solution for network professionals over the next several years.
The report, titled “Data Center Power Market by Solutions, by Services, by Verticals & Regions – Market Forecasts and Analysis (2014-2019),” shows that the global data center power market will grow from $15.19 billion in 2014 to $23.67 billion in 2019. This demonstrates a compound annual growth rate of 9.3 percent.
