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.
Imagine starting your day with a service call to restore your e-mail, or losing all of your customer billing data just before closing up for the night. Server technology offers business-class features to help you avoid these scenarios. Given the similar price points between a desktop and the Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 system, why not run your applications on a ThinkServer?

Digital assets in broadcast and media environments can generate revenue for decades, but if they become damaged or lost, they are either impossible or very expensive to recreate. As organizations in the broadcast and media industries adapt and re-invest for 4K or higher resolution production, older workflows may no longer be as efficient as they once were. Ensuring the long term protection and security of all high-value, high-resolu??on assets is essential. Cloudian and QStar Technologies regard data protection and easy access to data files as key requirements for organizations wishing to maximize their use of these valuable assets. To accommodate larger volumes of data necessitated by 4K files and higher resolution equipment, the ability to easily scale workflows, is paramount.
Latest generation high density and variable density IT equipment create conditions that traditional data center room cooling was never intended to address, resulting in cooling systems that are inefficient, unpredictable, and low in power density. Row-oriented and rack-oriented cooling architectures have been developed to address these problems. This paper contrasts room, row, and rack architectures and shows why row-oriented cooling will emerge as the preferred solution for most next generation data centers.
Being asked to "do more with less" has become standing operating procedure in business and government. Today, it is a generally accepted fact that finding innovative ways to reduce costs and extend the life of capital investments is an expectation. An area to explore in achieving these objectives is service/support/maintenance for servers, storage, routers and switches. While OEM maintenance is the default position for new equipment, there are significant aspects to consider for service beyond the expiration of initial agreements. This document provides an overview of critical aspects to take into account concerning OEM service and the value and benefits of third-party, multi-vendor service and support.

Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.

MAINTENANCE MADE EASY WITH THE HELP OF DATA
Predictive maintenance involves gathering targeted data for analysis, the results of which will help anticipate potential failures before they occur. Companies opt for this type of maintenance to avoid predictable incidents and repair equipment, assembly lines, or machinery with minimum impact on their operations.
World leader in design and manufacture of innovative sensing solutions that enhance safety, security, and energy efficiency.
For this manufacturers of high-tech imaging systems, monitoring accuracy and product quality are critical. Any quality problem could mean a part fails sooner than expected, or triggers a false alarm at a customer site that causes unnecessary panic.
By setting up automated manufacturing analytic workflows with the TIBCO StatisticaTM platform, the company can complete complicated processes in just a few minutes and improve product quality by decreasing the variability of everything they produce.

How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud.
This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.
Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners.
Many manufacturers are pursuing the immense business benefits available from digitizing and connecting their factories. Major gains in overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), reduced downtime, and manufacturing flexibility can be achieved with a factory that is digitized and connected. By providing visibility to machines and processes, manufacturers can anticipate issues that create unplanned downtime. By putting in place a secure, converged and wireless-ready network, manufacturers can have a platform that enables the agility to quickly start up new machines, cells, and lines, and rapidly deliver new products.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is flooding today’s industrial sector with data. Information is streaming in from many sources — equipment on production lines, sensors at customer facilities, sales data, and much more. Harvesting insights means filtering out the noise to arrive at actionable intelligence.
This report shows how to craft a strategy to gain a competitive edge. It explains how to evaluate IIoT solutions, including what to look for in end-to-end analytics solutions. Finally, it shows how SAS has combined its analytics expertise with Intel’s leadership in IIoT information architecture to create solutions that turn raw data into valuable insights.
