Idle Server; What Does This Mean For Your Data Center?

Posted on July 2, 2019 by Jessica Ciesla

In theory, a data center should be a well-orchestrated entity where a certain technological harmony is achieved. Unfortunately, much like a seven-year-old learning to play Frère Jacques on their new recorder, data centers can easily become a disconcerted mess of idle servers. According to a recent survey by the Uptime Institute, approximately 30 percent of global data center servers are either underutilized or completely idle. To move beyond Frère Jacques to a beautiful symphony, data center managers must first identify why idle servers exist.


Power Capacity Planning With Intelligent PDUs

Posted on June 27, 2019 by Jessica Ciesla

In recent years, energy costs have more than doubled for some data centers. As energy costs have risen, so to have the demands for power increased. The combination of rising energy costs and power consumption needs has led to new demands for more efficient power capacity planning. In fact, power capacity planning just might be one of the most important tasks that data center managers will tackle this year. 


The Advantages Of High Power PDUs

Posted on May 30, 2019 by Jessica Ciesla

A Power Distribution Unit (PDU) at its most basic level is a device that is fitted with multiple outlets. However, an intelligent and high power PDU is far more effective than a basic PDU. In fact, a high power PDU is not only capable of providing specific levels of electric power to storage devices, servers, and networking equipment, but it can deliver effective and long-lasting advantages to data centers throughout the world. 


What is the difference between inlet, outlet, and circuit breaker metering

Posted on May 16, 2019 by Jessica Ciesla

It's no secret that data centers have copious amounts of IT equipment. However, the challenge that data center managers face on a daily basis is knowing how to properly monitor and react (in real time) to each piece of IT equipment. The good news is that intelligent PDUs can help data center managers successfully monitor inlet, outlet, and circuit breaker metering. As any seasoned data center manager will tell you, inlet, outlet, and circuit breaker metering is critical to avoiding downtime, effectively utilizing power resources, and reducing data center costs year over year. 


Importance of Operating Your IT Equipment in Temperature Safe Zone

Posted on May 6, 2019 by Jessica Ciesla

Did you know that data centers consume approximately 1.8 percent of the total United States' electricity consumption? This unprecedented energy usage is expected to increase year over year as the amount of data consumed on an annual basis rises at unparalleled rates. The inherent challenge of rising energy and data consumption levels lies in environmental monitoring. In fact, when IT equipment isn't operated in the right environment (including within the designated temperature safe zone) it can lead to disastrous results.
