Organizations will now be able to make immediate savings on their energy costs by installing PowerMinder. Those companies that are interested can take advantage of a 45-day trial that is currently available on PowerMinder.com. This trial allows organizations to set baselines and assess their PC estate in advance to establish and report on actual energy consumption.
Ben Berger, PowerMinder Product Manager, said that “PowerMinder is perfect for organizations who are frustrated with the bulky, resource-laden products on the market today. IT departments are reluctant to deploy them because of the time, effort, and complexity involved. We are confident that our low-complexity, easy-to-deploy solution is going to resonate with people who have responsibility for corporate sustainability targets, or who just want an easy way to cut their energy costs”.

As the need to balance current and future IT requirements against resource consumption becomes more urgent, the data center industry increasingly views capacity planning as a way of achieving a critical component to planning a new build or retrofit. Data center capacity planning can be a complex undertaking with far-reaching strategic and operational implications. DCD Intelligence has therefore compiled this White Paper in order to share some industry insights and lessons on the practical steps that are needed to develop a successful power and capacity planning strategy.[Read More]
Server Technology had the recent opportunity, along with other partner companies, to participate in discussions across the globe with data center IT and facility managers as part of a road show seminar: Data Center Energy and Operational Efficiency.[Read More]
The demand for more power in the computer cabinet has led many data centers to upgrade to three phase power distribution. Proper three phase power distribution has traditionally meant dividing up power up into multiple branches within the rack PDU (Power Distribution Unit). In this paper we will explore the advantages of a new, less common approach to PDU design by means of alternating each phase on a per-receptacle basis instead of a per branch basis.[Read More]
Increasing powering and cooling demands within the data center have been the topics of choice for Data Center (DC) and Facility Managers for several years now. Increased power demands are a result of the need for more compute power and higher density devices have resulted. These high density installations include stacks and stacks of servers and the trend of implementing blade servers within these server "farms." Cooling problems are a direct result of the increased power demands based on the simple fact that more power increases the demand for cooling.[Read More]
