Case Studies











  • Software - Increased uptime and higher computes density translates to greater ROI


    The Challenge:

    Turn operates a highly scalable multi-tier server infrastructure that runs a “big data" analytics engine and software suite which provides a lightning-fast managed-service and self-service platform for brand and agency customers globally. Turn's success in advertising analytics required that their systems be deployed across multiple data centers (on premise and colocation). As they grew, their systems became more complicated and the number of hardware configurations and multiple points of data posed a significant opportunity for optimization globally.



    Outcome:

    Learn how Turn consolidated their Rack PDU configurations to one flexible solution that reduced 5-10% floor space and streamlined reporting of energy usage across all data centers.
    “We were able to validate power consumption versus colocation provider reports."

  • Switched PDUs Provide Uptime and Remote Management for picturemaxx and their 10,000 clients.


    The Challenge:

    Picturemaxx utilizes off-site colocation environments. Running hundreds of applications across multitudes of remotely located servers and storage arrays requires a very complex software stack. And while the adoption of virtual machine technology has meant that a lot of software problems can be solved through the restart of a virtual machine, occasionally a cold reboot of the hardware is required to restore things to working order. With an offsite datacenter, cycling a machine on and off means either lost time to travel to the facility or else an expensive “remote hands" support call to the colocation provider.



    Outcome:

    Learn how Picturemax was able to save precious time and money by having the ability to see power draw at the rack level and to cycle power to individual outlets to quickly recover a locked up server at a remote facility.
    It only takes one or two instances of a locked up server being remotely reset to pay for the functionality of a Switched PDU,"
    Michael Weinrich, Senior DevOps Engineer, Picturemaxx

  • Security – Power management and monitoring at the outlet level improve uptime with fewer power outages


    The Challenge:

    The Security company had to configure lab expansion of 50 racks into facilities where the power and cooling systems of the colocation providers vary by facility, and are different from those within client's internal lab environments. Additionally, these clients required a detailed understanding of how much power is consumed while performing a variety of software algorithms.



    Outcome:

    By working with Server Technology, the Senior Infrastructure Engineer at this security company allowed him to rapidly identify assets and build out reports aggregates power draw for an entire row as well as set thresholds for upstream breakers. Having this capability helped the client to experience improve uptime and a better understanding of capacity for future growth.
    “Each step up the 'improvement ladder' was successful. And when there were issues, Server Technology quickly helped me to remediate the issue."
    Senior Infrastructure Engeineer of Global Labs

  • Learn how ScaleMatrix Uses HDOT PDU to Achieve Industry-Leading Power Density


    The Challenge:

    ScaleMatrix, a national cloud, colocation and managed services provider, runs a proprietary platform that regularly measures: 17 kW, 34 kW and 52 kW – all within a single 45U enclosure. Maintaining such dense workloads per rack is no easy task. Sound reporting tools and responsive safety features were needed to ensure electricity flows into cabinets in a safe manner that avoids unexpected power surges, shutdowns and fires.



    Outcome:

    Switching to Server Technology's HDOT and SPM products empowered ScaleMatrix to efficiently power some of the highest density workloads in the country – if not the world.
    "With Server Technology, we operate in a problem-free environment nearly 100 percent of the time. This is very important, as we require 24/7/365 uptime."
