    The Dynamic Data Center: 10 Keys to Designing for Flexibility

    by Kayla Poole

    In our last blog supporting the new “Flexibility and Sustainability for the Dynamic Data Center” white paper by ServerTech’s own Marc Cram, we discussed the relationship between Moore’s Law and the resulting increased availability of data and its immediate consumption. In the first blog in this series, we talked about PUE and its contribution to the sustainable data center. For this last blog, we will shift our attention to the mission-critical facility itself and discuss flexible features that support sustainable design.

    The Dynamic Data Center: Today’s Growing Demands

    by Kayla Poole

    In our last blog, we addressed the role of PUE and its relationship to flexible, sustainable data centers. If you missed it, you can follow this link here to get caught up on the series. Today, we are going to turn our attention to some of the new challenges facing data center operators, specifically around the seemingly continuous propagation of technology and data. While Moore’s Law and consolidation efforts have worked to ‘densify’ the data center, new applications and edge computing are working to offset the trend. As mentioned in our previous blog, the industry as a whole has made tremendous advances in getting the average data center PUE closer to 1.0 but the recent technological advances have challenged operators.

    by Kayla Poole

    Suffice it to say, 2018 has been a fun year for the Stay Powered Blog here at Server Technology.

We covered them all with, ahem, a mix of intelligence and humor. If you were to read the five most popular blogs from this year, what would they be?

    Then, What is a Switched PDU?

    by Kayla Poole

    In our previous post “So, What Is an Intelligent PDU?” we provided some clarification to what can be thought of as a broad a category of products, all of which have a network connection in common. An intelligent PDU is a basic PDU with a network connection. And like most general categories, there are subcategories that bear some discussion. As we defined it in the last post, an intelligent PDU does two things: first, the network connection provides data feedback on the operation of the unit; second, the network connection provides the ability to control the operation of the unit remotely. From these two features come the two major subcategories in the intelligent PDU world: ‘smart’ for data feedback, and ‘switched’ for command and control.

    HDOT Cx in the Realm of Great Ideas: Part 3

    by Kayla Poole

    Leave it to Dilbert to remind us that the collective human effort known as corporate doesn’t always generate the best ideas when it comes to your data center. Not to worry: Server Technology’s data center power distribution units, from single phase to three phase PDU(s), always have your best interests in mind. Take the newly launched HDOT Cx, for example. The new Cx outlet design provides 2 outlets in 1, which not only solves the ongoing issue of density, but also provides future flexibility to swap out IT gear without swapping out your rack PDU(s).
