This business and technical white paper is an exploration of the data center fiber optic networking infrastructure requirements needed to meet current and future demands for data volumes and data rates. It covers how 200Gigabit (Gbps) and 400Gbps Ethernet (GE) fiber optic technologies evolved and how they should advance to 800GE and 1.6TE.
The next decade will continue to see growth in the number of IP-connected mobile and machine-to-machine devices, which will handle significant amounts of IP traffic. Tomorrow’s consumers will demand better online experiences and faster, smoother Wi-Fi service and application delivery from online providers.
Select the right transfer switch to avoid transient problems
January 31, 2019
When large inductive loads — loads consisting of large motors and/or transformers — are transferred between two live power sources, e.g., a normal source (1) and an emergency source (2), which may not be in synchronism, efforts should be made to eliminate line current transients that occur during this type of switching.
Expert service providers update aging technology with minimal disruption
January 31, 2019
Aging power control and automation systems can carry risk, both in terms of downtime of mission-critical power systems, through reduced availability of replacement components and the knowledge to replace existing devices within.
The term Manufacturing 4.0 defines an industrial automation trend that integrates new production technologies geared towards improving work conditions, increasing productivity, and enhancing the production quality of plants.
After attending a data center industry event earlier this year, and speaking with leading engineers from around the country, it struck me that there was very little conversation about reducing water in the data center.
The recent advances in computer technology and the growing adoption of high performance CPUs and GPUs are allowing users to achieve new heights in computer analytics including the use of Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, high-frequency trading, oil & gas research, and web scale business models.
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.
