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. According to company officials, Server Technology’s intelligent cabinet PDUs are known for being the “standard-bearer of the industry with unmatched quality, reliability and performance.” The company holds the largest number of patents in that industry.

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]
