Want to Support High-Density Applications? Try a Three Phase PDU.

by RJ Tee

Sometimes, the road less traveled proves to be the better route. That’s certainly proven to be the case with Server Technology’s series of 3 phase PDUs. Once it was a less common, new approach to power distribution in the data center, now three phase PDU(s) sales have spiked over the past three years. One of the early challenges of three phase power was load balancing. In the past, this meant carefully dividing power evenly across the three branches of the rack PDU so that you could draw roughly similar current on each branch. This only worked in a perfect world where the rack is filled with a single type of device.

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.
