Virtual environments run more services on less hardware. But that obvious benefit also means keeping services up and running is more critical. Professor Wattson explains.

Whitepaper: Simplifying Power Management In Virtualized Data Centers

by EatonMar 25, 2014

Eaton's Intelligent Power Manager (IPM) can help IT managers reap the benefits of virtualization. In particular, it comes with a plug-in for VMware's vCenter Server, currently the most popular virtualization management solution on the market. It enables IT managers to administer their backup power and power distribution assets in sophisticated ways via the same console they use to manage their physical and virtual servers.

This technology brief discusses the factors behind

Whitepaper: Powering Converged Infrastructure

by EatonMar 24, 2014

Converged infrastructures utilize virtualization and automation to achieve high levels of availability in a cost-effective manner. In fact, converged infrastructures are so resilient that some IT managers believe they can be safely and reliably operated without the assistance of uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), power distribution units (PDUs) and other power protection technologies. In truth, however, such beliefs are dangerously mistaken.

This white paper explores the factors

Whitepaper: Can Your Virtualization Software Handle A Power Outage?

Server virtualization empowers businesses to lower hardware spending, simplify administration and boost availability. It's no surprise, then, that nearly 80 percent of server workloads supported by x86 hardware will be running on virtual machines (VMs) by 2016, according to analyst firm Gartner Inc.

For IT and facilities managers, however, server virtualization introduces both challenges and opportunities. In particular, while it makes preventing downtime during utility failures

Whitepaper: Optimizing your Infrastructure for Cloud Computing

by EatonJan 24, 2011

Cloud computing is generating enormous amounts of discussion and excitement in the world of corporate IT. Eager to drive efficiency up and costs down, organizations of every size and description are rapidly adopting Web-based software, platform and infrastructure solutions. Indeed, analyst firm International Data Corporation expects global spending by enterprises on cloud services to rise at a compound annual growth rate of 26 percent between 2009 and 2013, from $17.4 billion to $44.2 billion.

Whitepaper: Maximizing UPS Availability

by EatonJan 01, 2011

Uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) play a vital role in ensuring IT reliability. As a result, their reliability is a crucial consideration too. Any time a UPS fails, mission-critical electrical loads are potentially at risk.

What, then, can organizations do to optimize UPS availability? As this white paper shows, the conventional answers to that question are often not the best ones. UPS reliability is ultimately less a function of UPS design?such as the differences between

Whitepaper: Is power protection costing you more than it should?

by EatonAug 06, 2010

In the quest to reduce energy consumption and cooling costs, data center managers have been looking more closely than ever at the energy efficiency of their uninterruptible power systems (UPSs). Legacy UPSs?those five to 10 years old?could be squandering as much as 10 percent of incoming energy in the course of doing their jobs. Since most of the power lost by a UPS is dissipated as heat, an inefficient UPS costs more in cooling as well.

New, groundbreaking UPSs maximize efficiency

Whitepaper: Unleashing Stranded Power and Cooling from New and Existing Data Centers

by EatonJun 29, 2010

Global demand for digital information and imagery is rising rapidly, putting severe strain on today?s data centers. In response, organizations are making increased use of blade servers and virtualization technologies that allow IT managers to squeeze more processing power into existing floor space, but that also significantly raise power and cooling requirements. As a result, most data center managers now find themselves continually faced with making costly new investments in additional power
