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.
"Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard 1584 has been the de facto standard for calculating the arc energy levels at different points in a power system. However, NFPA 70E provides the option of using the Arc Flash Hazard PPE Category task tables for PPE selection.
Which is right for you, and what do you need to know about each option? Find answers in our white paper, which describes how both types of analysis systems work and how to be sure you are using the tables correctly."
Before creating new technologies, we must think about how to create the right values to be also able to sell it. All the technology that is required for “Industry 4.0” is available today already, so in fact Industry 4.0 can be seen more than an innovation driver for new businesses that are not exploited today, than an innovation driver for technology. If these existing technologies are assembled properly together and combined with the right business models, there is really good chance to profit from Industry 4.0.
This white paper looks into the ways one can profit from Industry 4.0 by differentiating through new business models.
While many OEMs are aware of new technologies to make machines more energy-efficient, they are reluctant to make changes due to the perception that it will make their machines more expensive to sell. The constraints of cost reduction, usage of resources and energy reduction are becoming key drivers in the industry as consumers require manufacturers to be more “green”. This paper demonstrates how incorporating sustainable design can add value to their machines and differentiate OEMs from the competition.
Wireless technology is increasingly used in machine safety applications. New solutions introduce mobility and offer higher levels of flexibility and safety for plant floor operators. This eBook explores how modern wireless implementations can increase user safety and mobility, reduce installation costs, and boost productivity.
The challenges facing industrial companies grow more daunting by the day. Globalization, energy markets that change in real time, variations in materials and prices, aging of the industrial workforce, inability to attract the next generation of Talent, and difficult regulatory pressures have all contributed to an extremely stressful industrial business environment. Fortunately, the right automation system can now offer cutting-edge packaging solutions for meeting at least three of these challenges.

As a B2B marketer, the process of nurturing and generating new leads is always tricky business. Chasing high quality and relevant leads requires a considerable amount of time, energy and resources to be invested into email marketing campaigns, social media management and educational content such as blogs, whitepapers and eBooks. While live chat support has been around for about a decade, only in recent years and especially in the age of the smartphone, are B2B companies capitalizing on it as a channel to generate and nurture leads.

As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.
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.

Download this white paper to learn more about the HPE ProLiant Gen9 portfolio.
Today’s data centers are expected to deploy, manage, and report on different tiers of business applications, databases, virtual workloads, home
directories, and file sharing simultaneously. They also need to co-locate multiple systems while sharing power and energy. This is true for large as
well as small environments. The trend in modern IT is to consolidate as much as possible to minimize cost and maximize efficiency of data
centers and branch offices. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is highly efficient, flash-optimized storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file,
and object access to help consolidate diverse workloads efficiently. HPE 3PAR OS and converged controllers incorporate multiprotocol support
into the heart of the system architecture
