The Advantages of Row- and Rack-oriented Cooling Architectures for Data Centers
The traditional room-oriented approach to data center cooling has limitations in next-generation data centers. Next-generation data centers must adapt to

server room cooling  data center reviews , server architecture solutions , data center equipment , Executive Summary Room cooling is an ineffective approach for next-generation data centers. Latest generation high density and variable density IT equipment create conditions that room cooling was never intended to address, resulting in cooling systems that are inefficient, unpredictable, and low in power density. Row-oriented and rack-oriented cooling architectures have been developed to address these problems. This paper

The Greening of SaaS


Traditionally, the advantage of software as a service (SaaS) is that it reduces the costs involved in installing, deploying, and supporting stand-alone software. But recent “green” initiatives have shed light on another benefit: with no hardware to purchase or software to run, SaaS applications require less energy than their on-premise counterparts. Learn how your company can benefit from the “greening” of SaaS.

This includes aggressive hardware refresh programs that rotate and recycle older, less-efficient equipment constantly in exchange for new, more efficient models. A deep and committed focus on state-of-the-art application development and maintenance tools and technologies helps vendors maximize SaaS service and software efficiency. Efficiencies on the service provider side are nowhere near Read More

10 Errors to Avoid When Commissioning a Data Center


Data center commissioning requires tight coordination between vendors, facilities, IT departments, engineers, the commissioning agent, and others. Managed properly, commissioning can deliver an unbiased evaluation of whether a new data center will succeed or not. Managed poorly, it can lead to problematic data center performance issues. Learn 10 common data center commissioning mistakes, and find out how to avoid them.

These units mimic that rack's particular design load. With this artificial load installed and operational, the commissioning agent can now test UPS capacity, emergency power, cooling capacity and facility management along with a host of other subsystems in an integrated fashion.

Strategies for Deploying Blade Servers in Existing Data Centers


Blade servers have a major advantage over traditional ones—improving processing ability while using less power per server. But, with their smaller footprint, blades can be much more densely packed, resulting in racks that use up to 20 times the electrical power and generate up to 20 times the heat. This can stress power and cooling system capability. Learn how to create a power and cooling strategy with these guidelines.

Floor space limits. The total floor space in the data center may be constrained, or the floor space available for the blade deployment may be constrained. If severe enough, these constraints may force certain design approaches. No ceiling plenum. The room may not use or have a ceiling return air plenum. The room may be height constrained so that Read More

Guidelines for Specification of Data Center Power Density


Conventional methods for specifying data center density don’t provide the guidance to assure predictable power and cooling performance for the latest IT equipment. Discover an improved method that can help assure compatibility with anticipated high-density loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of power and cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, and maximize electrical efficiency.

server room cooling  is provided for a server consolidation project. All UPS, power distribution, and cooling systems are to be located within the room and do not currently exist. Due to headroom no raised floor exists or is feasible. A mixture of networking equipment is to be deployed, including blade servers, rack-mount servers, storage, and networking equipment. The blade servers are to be located together and not spread out. The current requirement is estimated to fill only half of the provided room. The remainder of the Read More

Server Appliances - "Caching" In on Internet's Growth


"Server Appliances" are a relatively new, fast-growing segment within the Server market. These systems are designed to perform one or two functions very well, without the overhead of a general-purpose server.

In addition, server appliances tend to focus on rapid deployment of both the hardware and software (the latter sometimes accomplished through a good GUI). Customers in this market have tended to be companies such as Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Application Server Providers (ASPs), as well as smaller companies and Mom and Pop shops that can't afford large computing expenditures. Further, larger companies and e-Commerce sites are now discovering the benefits of Read More

Importance of Server Certification


Many application providers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) either select a standard platform for their applications, or provide guidelines and recommendations as to which infrastructure components will optimize their solutions. Thus, one of the critical factors that should be considered prior to selecting a standard platform is the certification it carries, and how it pertains to your organization’s needs.
