PBS Television Station Improves Content Delivery
When the award-winning Public Broadcasting Service affiliate in Bozeman, Montana, moved to a new software-defined broadcast system, it turned to Raritan for tools for easier access to the new system and for managing the station’s IT infrastructure. “Uniform and reliable access to systems and ease of use” make the KX III switch and User Station a winning combination. Broadcast operations, Engineering, and IT personnel now have anytime-anywhere access to the station’s systems — from content production to broadcast distribution.
With business growing — and the completion recently of several company acquisitions — the firm made the decision to expand its data center operations to a Tier III colocation (colo) facility.
The data center team took the opportunity to exam its cabinet configurations and power distribution strategy, and to introduce new efficiency tools to both data centers.
Yahoo! JAPAN introduced the Raritan’s PX intelligent rack power distribution units (iPDUs) to its data centers to monitor real-time power consumption, and so decisions could quickly be made on where new servers and racks should be added to support scaling. Real-time energy monitoring also helps the company keep an eye on the health of its data centers.
