What to Consider When Considering Going Colo

Posted by RJ Tee on May 16, 2019 9:18:44 AM

In our last blog, we introduced the latest whitepaper, Flying Solo or Going Colo? by Marc Cram.  We discussed the decision points for flying solo and the things to keep in mind when planning your own data center.  Cram points out that companies that build their own enterprise data center have the time commitment, financial capability and above all, business demand, to justify the investment.

The Smart City Within the Marvel Universe

Posted by RJ Tee on Apr 26, 2019 4:22:25 PM

In the late 1970’s, Marvel Comics started a series called What If…?  that explored what life would be like within the Marvel Universe had certain events not happened or happened differently.  They had titles like “What If Spider-Man had Joined the Fantastic Four?,” What If Gwen Stacy had Lived?,” and heaven forbid, “What If Iron Man Had Been a Traitor?”

Cx and the Environment: A New “Intelligent” PDU

Posted by RJ Tee on Apr 25, 2019 11:16:55 AM

More and more, the data center industry is in the environmental spotlight: not in the sense of data center environmental monitoring, but in the broader sense of the planet’s environment.  In this blog, we talk about how the HDOT Cx has been created to bring new meaning to the term ‘intelligent PDU.’

Smart City: Systems, Sensors, and Networks

Posted by RJ Tee on Apr 19, 2019 12:57:21 PM

For those of us who work in the data center and IT space, the idea of a smart city is not overly surprising.  In fact, the smart city is a macrocosm of the workings of a data center.  Servers, powered by an intelligent PDU, process and collect data across complex networks.  Data center environmental monitoring systems manage the cooling and power ‘utilities’ through a network of sensors of varying types.  And thanks to Moore’s Law, the amount of data that is collected, processed, and stored has grown exponentially.

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 Kayla Poole 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.

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.

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.

And What Is a PDU in the First Place?

Posted by RJ Tee on Nov 21, 2018 12:03:49 PM

Ever tried searching the term ‘PDU’ in Google?

If you have landed on this blog and were looking for sports awards, corporate awards, and recognition products, you are in the wrong place. Unless, of course, you want to see the Server Technology trophy case, which is quickly being filled by our team of engineers.
