Data Center Power Distribution Company Server Technology to Speak on Expert Panel
Server Technology (News - Alert), a provider of data center distribution units, has certainly been making a name for itself as of late – from the unveiling of its Sentry Power System to the announcing of its new Server Tech Solutions Partner Program – and the company is not done with seeing its name in the spotlight.
This week, Server Technology announced that it will be joining data center power experts from nlyte Software and RF Code in a series of IT infrastructure energy efficiency workshops entitled, “Navigating the DCIM Waters: What every data center professional needs to know,” to be held in Santa Clara, Calif., April 26; New York City, N.Y., May 1; and Houston, Tex., May 8.
The workshops, which include a keynote speech from Uptime Institute Founder Bruce Taylor, are designed to give attendees a clear understanding of DCIM to help them evaluate and choose a DCIM solution.
"DCIM tools are foundational to the unifying and automating of IT and facilities management processes and best practices to effectively monitoring, measurement and management of critical environment capacity," said Taylor, vice president of Uptime Institute Symposium, the independent guest facilitator for this workshop. "This matters to not only the performance effectiveness of the interrelated systems, but also the energy efficiency. Effective DCIM systems are the ‘killer apps’ in the now-present era of digital infrastructure convergence.”
The workshop schedule is as follows:
- Santa Clara, Calif.: April 26, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Techmart
- New York City, N.Y.: May 1, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Regus Park Avenue
- Houston, Tex.: May 8, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., The Courtyard at St. James Place

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]
