Data Center Power Distribution Company Server Technology Gears up for Cisco Live! London
Server Technology is packing its bags and crossing the Atlantic Ocean this week as it heads to London to attend the annual Cisco (News - Alert) Live! London conference, a four-day networking and education event designed to foster technical education and innovation.
“We’ve attended Cisco Live! London for the past few years,” Julie Brown, marketing manager for Server Technology (News - Alert), told TMCnet. “We see it as a great opportunity to interact and network with the Cisco team and with the data center technology attendees that use Cisco gear and spread the word about our cost-saving, energy efficient Cisco solution.”
For the past two decades, Server Technology has equipped some of the largest companies in the world with power management solutions. Server Technology engineers and builds innovative data center power solutions for the data center and telecommunications markets.
While at Cisco Live! Server Technology is most looking forward to showcasing its Cisco solutions for Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and specifically for Cisco Nexus 7000 and 5000 Chassis, as well as Cisco Catalyst products.
“We provide several smarter, more economical solutions to power Cisco Nexus chassis – solutions that significantly lower equipment costs,” Brown said.
“Our Cisco solutions are designed to support Cisco’s overarching goals; Server Technology’s intelligent PDU’s, when combined with a Cisco network, allow companies to monitor and optimize energy consumption and reduce total cost of ownership by conserving energy at the data center rack level,” she added. “Companies can combine Cisco EnergyWise with Server Technology intelligent PDUs and monitor the power consumption of every piece of equipment within each rack in the data center. We’re the only company that can report both the outlet information, through our Per Outlet Power Sensing (POPSTM) as well as the inlet information, through our Per Inlet Power Sensing (PIPS) feature – all providing the most granular and accurate power consumption information.”
Cisco Live! is designed to hold programs specifically catered toward everyone from network engineers to system engineers to technical individual contributors to service provider engineers and business managers, among other industry leaders. The event, taking place from Jan. 31 to Feb. 3, boasts a variety of keynote sessions and panel discussions.
In addition to shedding light about its Cisco solutions, Server Technology is looking forward to spreading the word that all of its intelligent rack mount power distribution units (PDUs) are now Cisco EnergyWise certified and interoperable with Cisco’s EnergyWise client technology.
Recently, Server Technology was named to CRN’s 2012 Data Center 100 list for its intelligent cabinet PDUs.
