Data Center Power Distribution Company Server Technology Gears up for DCA Roadshow
In just a few weeks, Server Technology (News - Alert) – a data center power distribution company – is hitting the road once again and heading toward Washington D.C. for an event called “DCA Roadshow,” sponsored by the Data Center Alliance, of which Server Technology is a member.
The Data Center Alliance, which was formed to provide a centralized, comprehensive source for building successful IT infrastructures, aims to serve as the central repository of data center/server room products and services and to provide IT decision makers with a clear understanding of the different solutions available for their IT infrastructures.
The event, taking place Oct. 25, features a session titled "Creative Concepts for Increasing Data Center Efficiency," presented by DCA members Eaton/Wright Line, Fieldview Solutions, Minicom (News - Alert), PDI and Server Technology. Other featured sessions include a keynote address by RJ Meyers of Energy Star called “Promoting Energy Efficiency in Data Centers with Energy Star,” and a keynote speech led by Herb Villa called, “Review of the new ASHRAE Thermal Guidelines and What They Mean to You." The event will conclude with a panel discussion moderated by David Zucker of Minicom.
“The Data Center Alliance is made up of companies that bring ‘best of breed’ products and solutions to the data center marketplace – from racks, to cooling, to power distribution to console servers, virtualization, power monitoring, measuring and control and security. The DCA holds events throughout the year to bring together data center professionals to discuss new technologies and information that affect the data center, all couched under the benefits of energy efficiency – giving attendees information that they can use in their data center to address and reduce energy consumption,” Julie Brown, marketing manager for Server Technology, told TMCnet when asked about the goal of the roadshow.
Everyone from data center officials to IT professionals should attend this event particularly since the keynote speakers will shed some light on new information that affects the data center, IT infrastructure and data center power.
Server Technology is eager to join key members of the DCA –Eaton (News - Alert)/Wright Line, Minicom, Fieldview and PDI – in presenting its session which will highlight each company’s solutions that promote energy efficiency and sustainability.
The keynote speakers will present the new American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) thermal guidelines and what they mean to the data center manager.
So what does it mean to Server Technology to be a part of this alliance?
“Server Technology is committed to the goals of the Data Center Alliance – improving energy efficiency, uptime and promoting sustainability,” Brown said. “We also believe that this group represents the best data center products and solutions out there today.”

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]
