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.
On Demand As more organizations accelerate the pace of digital transformation, the importance of properly deploying and managing the physical networks that connect manufacturing and industrial environments to the rest of the organization intensifies. Deploying networks in edge locations such as warehouses, oil fields, refineries and roadsides presents a significant difference from the environmentally controlled data center environments that IT systems administrators are used to.
On Demand After a decade of "cloud-first" approaches, we know the capabilities of the cloud and where it should be augmented with distributed edge solutions to address latency-sensitive applications, regulatory/compliance regimes, sensitive intellectual property, and more.
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.
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 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 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 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.
