On Demand During this webinar, find out how Anthem Health, Inc. overcame tough challenges as they migrated their legacy data centers from open air to contained spaces. Anthem Health's new strategy includes both aisle and cabinet-level containment solutions. See the benefits they are receiving through a comparison of actual operational costs the chiller plant and cooling associated with their legacy design versus the new design that leverages Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) Computer Room Air Handler (CRAH) units.
On Demand Are high temperatures and crazy weather events stressing you out at work? Prolonged heat waves in July and August can be a burn out. Devastating hurricanes are becoming more frequent, so now is the time to be prepared. Spot coolers are a great way to keep operations up and running. Be prepared for the next weather disaster that moves through your region. Be proactive and develop a cooling strategy now to keep your cool throughout the dog days of summer. Portable cooling provides permanent and temporary cooling for people, processes and equipment.
On Demand An edge data facility is still a data center. One still and must consider design, construction, and operational habits that result in high levels of system availability, maintainability, and resiliency. The disaggregation that edge poses will distribute compute and storage assets, and the challenge will be placing edge assets into sufficiently robust facilities or enclosures outside of traditional data centers where those local solutions can equally sustain those IT operations and systems.
On Demand Without a doubt, security and compliance standards are an even greater concern for today’s organizations as the landscape of potential vulnerabilities continues to grow and shift. Cyberattacks stem directly from the lack of development and enforcement of stringent security processes and protocols, and the most intrusive and harmful attacks are actually the ones related to low-level security holes which are exacerbated by the challenge of data constantly in transit.
On Demand In this webcast, you will learn how to reduce costly downtime and protect sensitive electronic equipment against the damaging effects of transients caused by lightning, utility switching, internal load switching and more. Eaton will be offering helpful advice in selecting surge protective devices (SPDs) based on application needs as well as walk you through interesting case studies so you don’t fall victim to common surge vulnerabilities. The presentation will also highlight new National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements for SPDs.
On Demand One of the biggest challenges in colocation and MTDC data centers is balancing rising rack densities with acceptable operational efficiencies, particularly in retrofitted environments where architectural limitations pose added difficulties. Often, the convenient but expensive approach is adding additional cooling capacity to the space.
On Demand Microgrids hold significant potential to increase reliability and resiliency of critical government, military, security, health care, and other assets. But not all applications result in a positive business case or value proposition. Further, while microgrids can provide valuable reliability and resiliency benefits to critical assets, it is not always at a cost less than utility grid services tailored to serve those assets.
On Demand Just when you think there is nothing new―VR/AR, 5G, cryptocurrency rigs and blockchain applications, undersea data centers―today’s new IT designs are pushing far beyond the traditional data center space. These new applications are driving unique solutions for data management and the appliances supporting them in all kinds of environments. How should you plan to accommodate these emerging technologies?
On Demand In this new age, 100-year events are becoming common, making it clear that essentially no place is totally immune to natural risks. Therefore, reliable back-up power has become as important as primary utility service for data centers. In this part of our series of webinars, we will examine the considerations when specifying and selecting back-up power systems for edge data centers.
On Demand As transmission speeds increase in data center and enterprise networks, it becomes increasingly important to adopt a cabling-infrastructure strategy that considers multiple generations of network evolution. Deploying a cabling system that can support current and future needs requires thoughtful planning, and also requires an approach that is both robust and flexible.
Mission Critical’s 2019 July/August issue focuses on green data centers, intelligent power management, cooling options, and another installment of our State of the Mission Critical Industry roundtable article.
