Data Center Power Distribution Company Server Technology Welcomes John Fauteux to Team
Today, Server Technology welcomed to the company John Fauteux, who will serve as vice president of worldwide sales. Having formerly reigned as vice president of global sales for Avocent-Emerson Network Power (News - Alert), Fauteux brings over 15 years of data center infrastructure sales and management experience to his new role at Server Technology, overseeing all US, EMEA, APAC and channel sales.
"John brings a whole new level of sales leadership to the company. His proven track record in building successful sales organizations as well as his ability to apply highly-leveraged sales approaches consistently enables his teams to performance at levels which outpace the industry,” said Brandon Ewing, president of Server Technology. “John's ability to think strategically yet act tactically for the day to day matters at hand, mimics the culture found in all aspects of Server Technology itself. His vast customer and channel experience will fuel the rapid growth of Server Technology already underway.”
Server Technology, a company that touts itself for producing the highest quality rackmount power distribution and monitoring solutions, works to manage power capacity, reduce downtime and improve energy efficiency. Its line of Sentry CDUs are engineered and manufactured to meet the highest quality standards and are 100 percent performance tested for reliability and accuracy.
Fauteux will now join the team and be responsible for helping Server Technology continue to grow its data center power distribution units. Prior to his most recent role as vice president of global sales, Fauteux held several other senior roles while at Avocent (News - Alert) including vice president branded sales, area sales director/east, regional sales manager and strategic account manager, and was previously with Sprint and Tech Data (News - Alert).
He holds a master’s of science in management of technology and a bachelor of science in business administration, majoring in marketing from the University of Alabama, Huntsville.
In other company news, Mark Harris, vice president of marketing at Server Technology, recently sat down with TMCnet to discuss Server Technology’s Quality Power Architecture – the foundation that enables Server Technology’s Sentry CDU solutions to support the quality, breadth and flexibility of its rackmount PDUs.
“QPA is the secret sauce that allows us to quickly respond to customer demands,” Harris said. “It has technical requirements about how you make products last forever and work under extreme stress conditions. In the PDU world, it’s not what you see that matters; it’s actually what you don’t see that counts. Why buy $100,000 worth of equipment from Cisco (News - Alert), HP or anyone else and then use the cheapest power infrastructure you can find? That’s not really what IT professionals want to do any longer. They want power solutions that are going to work after 1,000 or 2,000 days exactly as they worked on the first day. That’s what we do. We are known for solid power products that work exactly as stated for years and years. With Sentry PDU products designed using our QPA, we just don’t have failures.”

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]
