Having reliable, consistent energy with no fluctuation in voltage or frequency is critical to the Granjas Carroll pork processing plant. But when the plant was first being built, having reliable power — or any power at all — was an uncertainty.
If a data center is only using a fraction of the available power, then the capital investment that is tied up in inflexible power infrastructure is impotent. The question is, who is paying for that stranded capacity and unused space?
Vertiv Geist rack power distribution units with the new, patented Combination Outlet C13/C19 option that supports C14 and C20 plug types, eliminates the complexity in deploying and managing IT rack configurations by adapting to any mix of hardware power configuration needs.
Aging power control and automation systems can carry risk in terms of downtime of mission critical power systems through reduced availability of replacement components and a lack of knowledge when it comes to replacing existing devices within.
This paper provides a high-level overview of software trustworthiness for developers, owner-operators and decision makers in industrial internet of things (IIoT) systems. We address various aspects of creating, acquiring and protecting software. We provide practical and actionable best practices for recognizing, addressing managing and mitigating risks and their sources, whether
developed in-house or acquired.
Traditionally, mission critical facilities have been willing and able to rely on centralized power plants owned and operated by utilities. These centralized utilities have controlled the transmission and distribution of power along with generating electricity at plants powered by coal, nuclear, natural gas, and hydro.
Over the last 30 years, the IT industry — data centers in particular — has seen the pendulum swing from centralized to decentralized and back again. Is it any wonder why mission critical operations are so driven by the latest buzzword of the day?
Critical power environments often rely on highly trained professionals to maintain worker safety while protecting facility equipment. “Safety by design” describes a comprehensive approach, incorporating practical and feasible electrical distribution saftey designs.
Mission Critical magazine recently took PowerSecure Inc. up on the offer to attend the Microgrid360 Tour, where we got to see the company isolate its campus from the utility while running on electricity created by on-site generation.
