Think about how hard it is trying to get your kids to turn off the lights when they’re not using them. Why don’t they listen? It’s because they don’t pay the bill; and usually, they don’t listen until you start asking them to chip in on the bill.Read More
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.
Time flies as, once again, we reached the end of another year. It seems like just yesterday we were sharing with you ways to shelter your network equipment from soaring summer temperatures. Now, you should be preparing your data center to handle 2015.
Considering Power Distribution Units (PDU) for your data center racks and IT equipment should require much more thought than simply selecting a ‘power-strip’ hardware configuration. If you care about Green energy initiatives and desire to save on electricity cost by making the most efficient use of the energy you use, make the move to intelligent rack PDUs if you haven’t already done so. This is particularly true for a new data center build and collocations. If you’re considering a collocation space, choosing the right PDU features will provide additional insight into your true energy use and a tool for capacity planning. We are now seeing large data center growth with collocation providers that charge clients based on actual energy consumed, kilowatt hour (kWh). A well thought out data center power distribution implementation will lead to reduced downtime, improved power monitoring management & control capabilities, and drive greater energy efficiency. The best suited Power Distribution solution requires considerable planning.
