    'Twas the Night Before a Christmas Poem Got Stolen

    by RJ Tee

    The original purpose of this blog was to offer our readers a respite from the standard technical fare, but as you will see from the lines below, it took on a life of its own. Our apologies in advance to the great poet Clement Clarke Moore, who penned the famous opening line “‘Twas the night before Christmas” almost two-hundred years ago.

    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).

    Dilbert’s Top 5 Lessons for the Data Center: Number Two

    by RJ Tee

    If you can buy services from experts that provide them at a lower cost than you can, you would be crazy to not take advantage of them. Fully utilized hardware brings economies of scale which means lower costs for you. Everything I see about the cloud talks about lower power costs and being more environmentally friendly. In regards to Data Center Environmental Monitoring, these topics are mostly related to server utilization and the bold claim of at least 30% less energy consumption and carbon emissions in comparison to using on-site servers. Another big advantage is to let the provider worry about disaster recovery and redundancy. The numbers quoted show faster recovery times with your data and applications mirrored across multiple facilities. Zero Cap-Ex costs since you pay as you go. Cloud computing is now a proven, mainstream alternative for SMBs.

    Dilbert’s Top 5 Lessons for the Data Center: Number Three

    by RJ Tee

    These projects are being driven by security concerns, company growth, disaster recovery, cost savings, aging facilities, mergers, etc. The list of cost-cutting opportunities is nearly endless: power, cooling, maintenance, physical space, licensing, etc. Great time to also look for a location that can provide alternate power sources like (wind, solar, and geothermal) to reduce or eliminate your carbon foot print. Power selection can increase efficiency including 3-Phase 400V power solutions (230 or 240V to the device) to reduce conversion losses and heating. Updating facilities with more efficient servers also reduces costs greatly. Increasing the data center’s operating temperature and looking at alternative cooling solutions like free cooling can greatly reduce costs as well.
