Server Technology Readies for Data Center Power Trade Show
For the past few years, data center power monitoring company Server Technology (News - Alert) has been attending DataCenter Dynamics Washington D.C., an event that provides an opportunity to come to grips with the latest in mission-critical infrastructure and networks with professionals from across the sector. This year is no exception.
“We attend DCD Washington DC because it’s the perfect show for getting in front of key data center professionals in the greater Maryland, DC, Virginia area,” Brandon Siri, senior marketing representative for Server Technology, told TMCnet. “We see a good blend of private and governmental customers attending this event. With the record number of new products we’ve been releasing this year, we are excited to spread the word about what’s new here at Server Tech and how it will benefit the data center community as a whole.”
For the past 25 years, Server Technology has been providing the world’s largest companies with power management solutions. The data center power monitoring company targets two primary markets –data centers and telecommunications.
Server Technology is looking forward to spreading the word about its services at DCD, an event that features speakers from GEICO, US EPA ENERGY STAR (News - Alert), the U.S. Department of Energy and FusionX.
When asked what Server Technology is most looking forward to about this year’s event, Siri said the company is most excited about putting its Sentry Power Manager (SPM) v5.0 in the spotlight.
“Our Sentry Power Manager (SPM) v5.0, the global rack-level power monitoring and management tool, was launched earlier this summer,” Siri said. “DCD DC is the perfect event for us to give live, onsite demos of the product.”
“We’re sending several power experts to the event to handle any and all questions about the SPM product, its numerous versatile uses, and how it work with CDUs to become the best of breed global power monitoring tool,” he added. “Power strategy and CDU deployment in the data center are our areas of expertise and we are eager to get in front of our DC area customers to share this.”
Server Technology is exhibiting at this year’s event and it invites all attendees to stop by its booth to enjoy schedule appointments, product demonstrations and discussions about its CDU program.
This year’s show is particularly important for attendees as data center power consumption has been in the hot seat for awhile now.
“Right now, the government and private companies are very concerned about their energy consumption,” Siri said. “There is a lot out there on the subject, but at DCD event we really see a focus on the subject. Attending a DCD is one of the best ways for an individual to gather the most relevant, accurate and timely information on the data center industry. DCD shows have excellent speakers, exhibitors, and attendees.”
“We’re just as excited to learn as we are to teach,” he added. “Server Technology listens closely to our customers in order to build the solutions that they need for their data centers. With the largest engineering team dedicated solely to CDUs in the industry, Server Technology is designing the features, power options and monitoring tools that world-class data centers need to most effectively manage their power. If you are looking for a power solution for your data center and can’t find one, we invite you to stop by our booth at DCD Washington DC and talk to us. If we can’t find a solution that already exists, we may be able to engineer you one.”

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]
