Server Technology to Highlight Key Data Center Trends at Gartner Data Center Conference
Escalating demands for ever-more efficient and responsive services have placed heightened pressures on the data center and the Infrastructure & Operations (I&O) organization. The cloud, virtualization, big data and mobility are all trends that the data center is expected to embrace fully. Data center and I&O leaders are being asked to optimize costs, all while modernizing legacy environments. To face these and other data center challenges, Gartner is hosting its annual Data Center Conference next week, from Dec. 3-6 in Las Vegas, NV.
Server Technology, a provider of the highest quality rackmount power distribution and monitoring solutions, has been attending the Gartner conference for years. For more than 28 years, Server Technology (News - Alert) has provided the biggest companies in the world with power management solutions; designing, engineering and building innovative solutions for two primary markets with common technology – data centers and telecommunications. One particular reason Server Technology continues to attend the Gartner (News - Alert) Data Center Conference is the attraction of higher level decision makers in IT – the company CIO or senior IT person.
“It’s a great place for Server Technology to be in front of senior level data center professionals from the world’s top companies,” said Julie Brown, marketing manager, Server Technology, in a TMCnet interview. “Everything that is being covered at the conference – cloud, virtualization, data storage, enterprise data centers, energy efficiency – it’s all very tightly related to Server Technology’s rackmount power product's and solution’s roles in the data center and how we can help companies manage that power. And help them meet their energy efficiency, green initiatives and ROI goals in the data center.”
Server Technology’s rackmount power products and solutions include its cabinet power distribution units (PDUs), from basic to switched, smart and metered, its Per Outlet Power Sensing (POPS) and Per Inlet Power Sensing (PIPS) features, and its Sentry Power Manager (SPM) power monitoring and management solution.
New SPM features include SNAP, which lets you auto-configure hundreds or thousands of PDUs from a single dashboard from anywhere. Its new Predictive Trending Analytics lets users see how changes in the data center can affect performance before they are implemented.
“You’ll know if you have a problem before you have a problem,” said Brown.
Key topics for the conference include all the top issues related to data centers today – cloud, virtualization, IT operations, data center infrastructure and facilities. Data centers are a key growth and/or consolidation area for companies today.
“There is so much activity (growth & consolidation) going on right now and our products and solutions solve so many of the challenges faced in data centers today – uptime, efficiency, power management and monitoring, including remote power management,” said Brown.
Server Technology PDUs have the reputation of being the highest quality, engineering, reliability and performance in the market today. They are designed and engineered to meet all critical data center and telecommunication network needs to improve uptime and energy efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint and costs.
“We’re looking forward to networking with the Gartner attendees and demonstrating the innovative features, functionality and engineering of our power management products and solutions,” said Brown.
