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.

What to Consider When Considering Flying Solo

Posted by RJ Tee on May 14, 2019 1:58:58 PM

 

In a new whitepaper for Server Tech, Marc Cram lays out the considerations for companies as they approach the best way to handle and house their data center occupants.  The title says it all:  Flying Solo, or Going Colo?  An expert when it comes to the space, power and cooling, as well as the differences between Single Phase PDUs and Three Phase PDUs, Cram presents the choice facing those responsible for managing their data center needs.

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.’

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: 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.

Server Tech Cx and Data Center Standardization

Posted by RJ Tee on Dec 14, 2018 11:55:09 AM

The idea that standardization benefits those of us in the data center space is neither new nor difficult to grasp.  Data center standardization is a reality that directly supports the uptime goals of your organization.  This applies wherever your PDU(s) are operating, like a colocation facility, corporate data center, or hyperscale complex.  You may wonder, then, how PDU power factors into this equation, let alone a small receptacle tucked into a PDU at the back of a rack?

[Pt. 3] New Hardware in the Data Center

Posted by RJ Tee on Oct 26, 2018 1:23:17 PM

One of the identified macro trends for the data center market is the never-ending progression of new hardware technologies. Where “density” used to mean a 42U rack full of 1U servers, today’s hyperscale, hyper dense data centers may have tens, hundreds, or even thousands of nodes and cores within a single rack (or even single RU in some instances). In addition, SSDs, networking fabric, GPU processing cards, specialty FPGA and ASIC chips for AI applications are all being added at a rapid clip to the already complex stack found in most data centers.
