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 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 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 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 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 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 DemandThis webinar will present the mechanical and electrical options for on-site energy storage for your mission critical environment. These options include grid-level battery storage, thermal energy storage, zero-net energy, solar, and critical power stored energy.
On Demand The Edge is extending IT into challenging locations that can be just about anywhere, deploying to spaces that will not have multiple layers of security and access control. What are the options for securing these installations in spaces that lack typical yet essential facility infrastructure components? And while small in size, Edge installations should also provide maximum efficiencies to support corporate green Initiatives.
On Demand Modular power systems are comprised of multiple individual power backup systems, working as a unit in a single UPS. They ship and install like single UPSs, but functionally they operate as redundant parallel systems. This arrangement provides the ultimate in flexibility as data center requirements change and allows the user to create a pay-as-you-grow architecture, instead of over-provisioning their critical power on day one.
Mission Critical Magazine’s 2019 January/February issue takes a deep dive into mission critical facility design as well as the challenges of managing capacity, and another installment of our panel discussion on the state of the data center industry with three industry thought leaders.
