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.
For backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solution providers Security Compliance can be a multi-tiered, multi-faceted monster. Industry verticals such as banking, health care, insurance and energy production all have different regulatory requirements to protect information systems.

Building managers face growing pressure to reduce energy consumption and increase operational efficiency in order to boost the bottom line. Making this difficult, many buildings have disparate systems that must be controlled independently due to a lack of integrated building automation. Read the white paper
APC's calculators and selectors are ideal in the early stages of data center design. Use these tools to break down your major planning decisions and model the design. You'll find yourself using these tools again and again. The Data Center Efficiency Calculator enables you to determine the impact of alternative power and cooling approaches on energy costs.
Electricity usage costs have become an increasing fraction of the total cost of ownership (TCO) for data centers. It is possible to dramatically reduce the electrical consumption of typical data centers through appropriate design of the network-critical physical infrastructure and through the design of the IT architecture. This paper explains how to quantify the electricity savings and provides examples of methods that can greatly reduce electrical power consumption.
Data center managers are faced with increasingly challenging demands: supplying additional computing power using lessenergy in a smaller space, while staying within budget constraints and maintaining mission-critical reliability.
For data center and lab managers who are concerned about the utilization and thecost of power, Power IQ enables you to reduce capital and operating expendituresby providing the information and controls you need to be more energy efficient.
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.
Managing payroll in-house can be challenging to maintain for growing businesses. Fortunately, you can free up a lot of time,
energy, and resources by letting a provider handle it. Find out why you should outsource with these top-5 reasons
The decision to keep your current applicant tracking system (ATS for short) or switch to a new ATS, is often a difficult one to make.
Switching to a new applicant tracking system can be costly and a perceivable headache to implement. However, when you find an ATS that meets your company’s unique needs while providing resources to help your company both today and tomorrow; then switching could be the best decision your company makes.
The right applicant tracking system should provide solutions to your most common pain points, saving you time, money, and energy.

Making predictions is a risky activity. Making predictions in the utility industry can be perilous. History is filled with missed or prematurely exuberant pronouncements of the future of utilities and energy. For example, in the late 20th century, many predicted that the world’s oil supply had reached peak production and would become scarce. Instead, shale gas and oil are in abundance. In the 1990s, people predicted that fuel cells and hydrogen would dominate the landscape by 2010, another illustration that predictions can fail to reach their promise.

Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system.
In this complimentary white paper, learn how to reduce the TCO of your pumping system with a limited investment in three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.
The largest percentage of those surveyed purchase for general manufacturing (27%), followed by commercial construction (12%), contractor/service provider (12%) and residential construction (10%). A smaller percentage of participants purchase for the automotive, aerospace, machine shop, energy and hospitality industries, among others.
For many of us, the term “smart city” conjures up images of sensors collecting data about everything from traffic patterns to energy use. It’s common for government leaders to think, “That’s not for us. We’re not there yet.” But if your organization is collecting data of any kind, you are in a position to use that data to create a smarter city for your citizens.
The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF).
Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way
to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and
potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.
Ensuring the reliability and efficiency of your data center operations requires a strategic partner that is qualified to minimize energy usage, reduce costs, and optimize space utilization, helping you meet critical business initiatives.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.
Power distribution is facilitated through different pieces of equipment that take the power conditioned by your uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and send it to your IT equipment . Power distribution solutions can manage and even control energy consumption in smaller environments as well as large data center applications . Distributing power efficiently results in reduced operating costs and increased reliability.
