Whether you operate a large, a medium or even a small data center, it may be time for you to consider deploying high power to at least some of your racks. Good candidates are racks that will be packed with 1U servers, racks with blade servers and racks with data center networks or storage devices.
And, there are side benefits. Moving to higher voltages, whether single phase or three phase, reduces transmission losses which leads to energy savings. Higher voltages, especially when deployed as three-phase power, are a good way to increase rack power capacity without adding to cable clutter and blocking cooling air in under-floor plenums. High power racks, coupled with in-row or overhead local cooling, also eliminate the energy waste from moving air across the room since cooling is now localized.

Eaton® BladeUPS® available through HM Cragg are designed specifically for high-density computing environments, the Eaton BladeUPS delivers 12 kW of efficient, reliable power in only 6U of standard rack space, including batteries. Expand capacity by combining 12 kW modules in a building block fashion to deliver 60 kW of redundant backup power from a single rack enclosure. This powerful configuration delivers higher power density than competitive, modular solutions, while dissipating only one-third of the heat.
The IBM BladeCenter HX5 is a scalable, high-performance blade server with unprecedented performance, and the flexibility needed for database and virtualized applications. According to recent benchmark results, the HX5 has achieved an overall performance score that is up to 18% better than the competition. In this paper, you'll learn how IBM achieved their impressive scores and how clients can consolidate their datacenter on HX5 to increase utilization, simplify systems management and reduce operating costs.
This paper highlights new IBM servers and blades based on Intel Xeon 5600 Series processors and how they enable outstanding virtualization/consolidation. They allow you to lower TCO, reduce development costs, and increase performance within the same energy/cooling envelope.
