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.

[Pt.1] Hyper Growth, Hyperscale, and Hyper Density in the Data Center

Posted by RJ Tee on Oct 10, 2018 12:56:00 PM

How to keep up with the need to build out multiple data centers a day? Edge and cloud computing players such as Vapor IO are finding themselves with a daunting task – figuring out how to roll out 40,000 data centers at cell tower locations around North America. Partnering with fast, flexible suppliers offering short lead times and high production capacity is a key enabler for widespread micro/edge data centers as well as building hyperscale data centers.
