On Demand Over the past 60 years, UPSs acted solely as power protection devices that both conditioned A/C power and provided battery backup to guarantee uptime through power disruptions. These capabilities were so critical that UPSs were only dedicated to mission critical support even though utility power is used 99% of the time. It’s got UPS manufacturers and businesses asking industry-altering questions. Can these large systems provide more than just backup power for my facility? Am I missing out on possible ROI opportunities?
On Demand As transmission speeds increase in data center and enterprise networks, it becomes increasingly important to adopt a cabling-infrastructure strategy that considers multiple generations of network evolution. Deploying a cabling system that can support current and future needs requires thoughtful planning, and also requires an approach that is both robust and flexible.
On Demand In this new age, 100-year events are becoming common, making it clear that essentially no place is totally immune to natural risks. Therefore, reliable back-up power has become as important as primary utility service for data centers. In this part of our series of webinars, we will examine the considerations when specifying and selecting back-up power systems for edge data centers.
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.
This issue of Mission Critical, we focus on cabling solutions, total cost of ownership, the real cost high-speed migration, hybrid IT strategies, and more. The 2020 Buyer’s Guide is also featured for your convenience.
