Server Technology Hitting the Big Apple to Spread the Word about Data Center Power Monitoring
Just a few months ago, data center power monitoring company Server Technology (News - Alert) made a name for itself at Interop Las Vegas when the company powered the InteropNet. And, this time next week, Server Technology will again make its name heard when it attends Interop New York City for a second stab at the trade show.
“Interop (News - Alert) Las Vegas was a huge success for Server Tech this past May,” Brandon Siri, senior marketing representative for Server Technology, told TMCnet. “We’ve packed up everything from Vegas and shipped it out to the New York event.”
“Server Technology will be again powering the NOC (News - Alert) (Network Operations Center) throughout the show with both cabinet PDUs and our Sentry Power Manager (SPM) v5.0,” he added. “Our high quality components guarantee that the Interop Net will be up and running 24/7, measuring and monitoring all the power activity of the devices deployed throughout the trade show floor. Our heavy investment in our patented designs will allow the Interop IT staff to securely distribute power, manage outlets, trend, and report on the temperature, humidity, and power of all the racks on the show floor as well as at the off-site facility. In fact, we invite anyone interested to view the SPM v5.0 deployed in the Interop Net here: https://188.8.131.52/ Username: spmdemo; Password: sti01.”
For over eight years, Server Technology – a pioneer in data center power monitoring products –has attended both the Las Vegas and New York events, and this year is no exception. Next week’s event, taking place Oct. 3-7, will bring together the industry’s top leaders to discuss and learn about cloud computing, data centers, virtualization and mobility, among other things.
In addition to exhibiting and networking, Server Technology officials are looking forward to powering the NOC again.
“Interop selects best of breed product solutions for their network,” Siri said. “To be chosen year after year as the select PDU provider says something about Server Technology products, about our service team, about our engineering core, and our customer service. We do one thing at Server Technology and we do it better than anyone else with the patents to back it, and that’s create cabinet PDUs. We are honored that Interop has selected us again, and we are also honored that our customers continue to buy from us again and again.”
During next week’s show, Server Technology hopes to hear more from its customers about what they need and want, what challenges they are facing with regards to the data center power monitoring, and what solutions could help them.
“Once we know their problems, we design and build the solutions,” Siri said. “Server Technology is known for its speed to market and our ability to build products to meet the most challenging demands. Our core building blocks allow us to quickly build custom units; for high density applications, for all different types of cabinets, for unique data centers.”
Server Technology has made good on its word as the whole summer has been filled with news from the data center power monitoring company.
From releasing a total of 220 new products this year to unveiling the Sentry Power Manger 5.0 to unveiling the Sentry Power Manager (SPM) Management Pack for the Microsoft (News - Alert) System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2, Server Technology had anything but a slow summer this year.
In light of all of these announcements, Server Technology is looking to share its new products at Interop.
“We have launched a massive amount of new cabinet PDUs, a new version of our firmware (v6.1), and a new version of our Sentry Power Manager (v5.0),” Siri said. “We are spreading the word that Server Tech has the total solution for data center power management. The combination of Server Technology’s Web-based Sentry Power Manager 5.0 and Version 6.1 firmware for our cabinet PDUs provides a tightly-integrated system for rack-level data center power monitoring, measurement and control.”

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]
