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 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 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.
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.
