Data Center Power Management Vendor Server Technology Named InteropNet Selected Provider
Server Technology, which designs and manufactures products to reduce downtime and improve data center power management, has been chosen as one of the selected vendors involved in building InteropNet for Interop Las Vegas 2011. A complete list of selected providers was released today, and they will power Interop’s specialized cutting-edge temporary network.
InteropNet supplies a reliable, high-speed network for attendees and exhibitors throughout the entire conference center. The event is planned for May 8-12, 2011.
Server Technology’s (News - Alert) Calvin Nicholson, director of software and strategic alliances, commented on his company’s involvement with InteropNet. “InteropNet participation allows Server Technology to work closely, in an informal environment, with many of the top technical companies in the world, ensuring a level of interoperability across a number of key technologies and partner vendors within the NOC (News - Alert) environment. We are excited about the opportunity to once again participate and be involved in Interop, as it has continued to be a worthwhile activity for our organization.”
Cloud, virtualization, mobile, and other technologies are rapidly creating a dramatically new environment, and IT organizations have to discover how to address changing business practices in order to overcome business challenges.
"For 25 years, Interop has brought leading vendors together to build a showcase network to foster interoperability and quicken the adoption of emerging technologies," said Interop General Manager Lenny Heymann. "This year's InteropNet participants play a key role in highlighting innovation and giving Interop attendees the confidence to incorporate the latest solutions into their own networks."
Attendees at the event, produced by UBM TechWeb (News - Alert), experience innovations firsthand through a state-of-the-art, wide-scale deployment and interactive lab environment. The network is built in collaboration with vendors and volunteers who come together to create a totally interoperable network using cutting-edge technology. It demonstrates how to design, deploy, and manage a multivendor, converged network. Best-practice methodologies are used to provide a viable implementation and reference model for networks that can satisfy current and future business requirements.
Recently, Server Technology, responding to demand for customized power measuring and monitoring solutions, introduced 18 cabinet power distribution units, adding 120 products to the company’s product line with the options available for the new products.

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]
