How Intelligent PDUs Play a Vital Role in Bitcoin Mining

First — What is a Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system. It is the first decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central bank or single administrator. The network is peer-to-peer and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary.

Second — What is Bitcoin Mining?

Bitcoin mining is the process by which transactions are verified and added to the public ledger, known as the blockchain, and also the means through which new bitcoins are created.


Raritan’s PX PDUs, the Choice of Enterprise Data Centers

Posted on January 29, 2018 by Gento  |  Comment (0)

With the growing costs of power and an increased uncertainty in power availability, energy conservation has become a major concern in the data center.  Increases in the demand of computing power to satisfy mission-critical applications along with the emergence of virtualization have had major effects on server density, making the need for an efficient energy management plan even more important. When using Raritan’s PX PDUs,  with the detailed knowledge of energy consumption gained from real-time monitoring within the data center, administrators can feel secure that they are making better, more energy conscious decisions.


KVM Switches: What You Need to Know

Posted on January 18, 2018 by Gento  |  Comment (0)

At its core, a KVM switch is simply a piece of hardware that allows one person to control multiple computers using a single keyboard, monitor, and mouse from a centralized location. The earliest examples of KVM switches on record actually pre-date the invention of the mouse itself, which is why they were originally used as testing tools for motherboard and production server quality tests.

With the advent of mouse interfaces like PS/2, USB, Sun, and Mac, however, the concept itself evolved into something much more meaningful than those original applications. For many organizations, KVM switches act as the backbone of their entire technological infrastructure - even if not everyone has necessarily come to realize that simple fact quite yet. 


Micro Data Center Environments

In the past few years, you may have noticed two parallel and seemingly opposite trends happening with data centers. Many businesses have consolidated multiple sites into one or a few centralized, larger facilities. In addition, third-party data center management companies have taken over formerly in-house computing functions. This consolidation has resulted in very large data centers.


Data Center Infrastructure in a Software-Defined and Virtualized World

When asked about the technology used in your daily business environment the things that typically come to mind are virtual, non-physical aspects. This is because businesses have become increasingly digital in recent years. However, IT will always rely on a strong foundation of hardware in order to support the software needed to virtualize IT resources. Thorough management of IT infrastructure is necessary to control operational costs and mitigate security risks. The following are aspects of technology that will continue to have a physical presence in data center infrastructure:
