On Demand The requirements for data centers are constantly being redefined in the course of the digital transformation. Latency-intensive, sensor-based applications and bandwidth-heavy content such as video streaming, VR and AR require the continuous availability of a trouble-free connection of the relevant end devices to the data center. Given the increasing importance of data for digital business models, edge computing has already become indispensable in many places. Conventional infrastructures offer no substitute for edge computing.
On Demand As organizations realize the value of modular construction and scalability, data and communications infrastructure continues to evolve. By using prefabricated components that can be easily, quickly, and cost-effectively reproduced, companies can expand their facilities based on their bottom lines rather than their predetermined timelines. But, along with growth comes increased heat load and rack density. So, what’s the secret to keeping energy costs down and availability up while new infrastructure is installed and connected?
On Demand Throughout the U.S., data usage is skyrocketing — since 2010, average data consumption per household has increased 38 times. This puts significant pressure on data center owners and operators to find efficient ways to scale power capacity in response to demand. With endless design options available, many organizations have fallen victim to trying to reinvent the wheel, prioritizing customization over project efficiency.
On Demand Modern data centers can be quite complex in their requirement for high quality water. Water filtration systems play an important role in keeping data centers cool. Thousands of gallons of water can flow through an average data center cooling system each day, bringing along debris, scale and biological activity. These unwanted particulates can build up over time, causing drastic amounts of waste for your facility.
On Demand As today’s data centers become increasingly complex, data center managers need a single, easily managed solution that helps them better understand the dynamics of their facility and systems in order to make more informed, faster decisions. By learning how to simplify this complexity and work with suppliers who can help speed deployment, data center managers and operators can reduce cost through an integrated ecosystem of equipment and software that addresses faster deployment, airflow management, remote power, environmental and access control monitoring.
On Demand Core and edge data center downtime can cost businesses millions — with a major impact on critical applications. This webinar will explore the impacts of downtime in core data centers and at the network edge. Dr. Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of the Ponemon Institute, and Kyle Keeper, vice president of global AC power for Vertiv, will explore the attitudes surrounding downtime mitigation from edge to core and the actions most often taken to prevent future events.
On Demand Examining the application of traditional fossil-fueled generators in a world where decarbonization is demanded by jurisdictions, owners, and customers. We will show how engine generators are applied with energy storage systems, island/on-site power systems, and renewable energy systems within the fence and share design and financial models for mixing power sources for your power system.
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 Special considerations, including corrosive dust, humidity, heat, and generators, dictate extra ruggedness be built into backup power system designs that exist in non-typical IT and mission critical commercial and industrial environments. Applications that often require more robust backup power include factories, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, mining, and wastewater processing. Or, at other times, what should be a typical, secure data center environment has its own, unique security or environmental concerns.
