On Demand Where are you on the digital journey to saving costs, increasing security, and delivering higher efficiency? In our “always on” world, data centers stand on the front line of the digital revolution. Dave Sterlace, head of technology at ABB Data Centers, explores how digitalization can transform how we operate our digital enterprises.
On Demand Research shows that nearly half of mission critical organizations in the U.S. do not have an emergency preparedness plan in place. Last year alone, 65% of these organizations had to rely on generator power for more than 12 hours but still, a third don’t have a guaranteed agreement to ensure the generators at their facility will have critical fuel supply.
On Demand 5G promises lightning-fast speeds, no lag time, and increased densities — a critical piece to make autonomous vehicles and smart cities a reality. So, why aren't cars driving themselves yet? The answer is that even though the technology needed to transmit the data exists, there’s not enough power to get it there. Integrating distributed power to high-speed communications and IT nodes seems like a logical fix to the problem.

On Demand Data centers of today are rapidly transforming into data centers of tomorrow. The industry is evolving at both ends of the spectrum as it continues to increase its physical footprint while simultaneously decreasing its carbon footprint. Some data center campuses consist of several extremely large facilities, but decentralized networks that utilize small, on-site server rooms are also growing in popularity. And although there are still a lot of questions surrounding edge computing, it’s certainly not going anyway anytime soon.
On Demand In the U.S., there are multiple overlapping data center energy efficiency metrics and standards, such as ASHRAE, Energy Star, and The Green Grid, to name a few. While they are similar in their overall intent, they differ in their terminologies, methodologies, and applications.

On Demand The rapid demand for lithium batteries with uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) has left the fire, safety, and electrical codes a step behind. In prior versions of these batteries – there was little guidance given on installation and code requirements. The latest versions require a more stringent look at new codes, requirements and practices.
On Demand Fiber optic infrastructures are enabling the fast data transmission, because of this, having clean, reliable optical connectors becomes a must in any manufacturing process as well as in the field installation. According to different sources, any contamination in the connector end face can cause failure of individual components or even a network.
On Demand With the number of edge sites on the rise, it’s critical for you to know what’s going on in the network at any given moment. However, it’s likely there are sites you have never visited. So, if you don’t know exactly what a site looks like, what security measures are in place, or even where it is located, how can you have true visibility into the physical environment? The answer is by having good sensors in place.
On Demand One Wilshire building in Los Angeles, one of the most densely connected buildings in the world, houses 450,000 square feet of data center. Organizing the organic growth of disparate cooling equipment was a major concern for its owners, who were working with the engineering team and manufacturers to increase the cooling capacity. The goal was to achieve 4000 tons of scalable cooling, with a target of 50% free cooling. Learn from the experts who completed this project in 2018 — about how they achieved the basis of design for One Wilshire tenants and exceeded the energy efficiency goals of the project by 25%, which is 62 times the amount required by Title 24 in California.
On Demand During this discussion, the audience will learn what happens as a cyberattack on the electrical grid unfolds. The dialogue will include identifying problems and solutions to keep hackers out of the critical infrastructures that power the digital society. Electric utility grids are more vulnerable than ever to hacking and disrupting energy flow.
