June 2009- Data center electrical efficiency is rarely planned or managed, which results in most data centers wasting substantial amounts of electricity. Today it is both possible and prudent to plan, measure, and improve data center efficiency. In addition to reducing electrical consumption, efficiency improvements can result in higher IT power densities and give organizations the ability to install more IT equipment.
June 2009- Management of individual devices is necessary to have visibility into the many data points required for the reliable operation of network-critical physical infrastructure. Discover how element management solutions offer the optimum approach as they manage different types of devices and can make manageable the large volume of data necessary for network availability.
June 2009- Data center power requirements vary on a minute by minute basis, depending on the computational load. The magnitude of this variation continues to grow dramatically with the deployment of power management technologies in servers and communication equipment. Learn how variation gives rise to new problems relating to availability and management.
May 2009- Data center electrical efficiency is rarely planned or managed, resulting in most data centers wasting substantial amounts of electricity. But today it is possible and prudent to plan, measure, and improve data center efficiency. Learn how in addition to reducing electrical consumption, efficiency improvements can gain users higher IT power densities and the ability to install more IT equipment in a given installation.
May 2009- As heat densities in data centers have increased, it has become evident that cooling these higher power demand loads is more difficult. The advent of a newer cooling architecture that was designed for the higher densities has brought increased data center efficiencies. Learn more about the efficiency benefits of row-based cooling compared to other common cooling architectures.
May 2009- Data center power and cooling infrastructure worldwide wastes more than 60 million megawatt-hours per year of electricity that does no useful work powering IT equipment. Not only is this an enormous financial burden, it is a significant public policy environmental issue. Learn the principles of a new, commercially available data center architecture that can be implemented to dramatically improve the data center electrical efficiency.
May 2009- Even as electricity costs have become an increasing fraction of data center costs, it is still possible to dramatically reduce data center electrical consumption through appropriate design of network-critical physical infrastructure and IT architecture. It is important to understand how to quantify electricity savings and what methods can greatly reduce power consumption.
May 2009- There are three subtle but significant factors that can materially affect UPS systems' operating costs, but unfortunately, the people who specify UPSes often fail to recognize these factors, which leads to increased costs. Learn how to avoid common errors and misunderstandings in evaluating UPS efficiency.
April 2008- Eaton offers this presentation discussing all aspect of power in the data center, including UPSes, monitoring, power metrics and much, much more.
November 2008- Determining the right power distribution can be perplexing. How much power do you need? What functionality do you need? What inputs and outputs do you need? Learn the answers to these questions, and find out how Eaton makes enclosure power distribution easy.
November 2008- Download this newsletter featuring Gartner Research to learn how IT can green the data center and tame power-hungry distribution systems.
November 2008- With blade servers, a single rack of equipment can easily produce dozens of power cords to manage—and an appetite for 20+ kW of reliable power. Learn how enclosure-based power distribution units streamline the power architecture and support blade power requirements.
November 2008- It's a hostile world for IT equipment, and businesses of all sizes are at risk. Business continuity demands that you protect your IT infrastructure from the hidden threats of the typical facility environment. Discover the 10 best ways to reduce costs while protecting your critical business systems.
November 2008- High-density computing environments can be a big drain on data center operating budgets, especially with rising power demands, increasing power costs and massive heat loads. The good news? Even a small data center can save tens of thousands of dollars simply through wise choices in management practices, IT hardware, power and cooling infrastructure. Learn the 10 top most effective ways to save energy in your data center.
A common practice in today’s mission critical data center environment is to equip servers with dual power supplies for improved reliability. However, if improperly implemented, it could increase the likelihood of power failure.
In a "perfect" scenario, such a as a Tier 4 Data Center, there are 2 completely independent power paths, each comprised of items 1-6. Each path and the items in the path must be capable of supporting 100% of the entire Data ...
