Servergy Unveils Cleantech Server Line
The newly released Cleantech Server line from Servergy is a new set of clean and green class of high I/O PowerLinux servers that are designed to satisfy the energy requirements of data centers around the globe.
“With the global skyrocketing demand for energy, this has become a massive problem for widespread sustainability initiatives,” said Bill Mapp, founder and CEO at Servergy. “And it will only intensify as the whole world goes online and quickly moves to a smart and connected planet powered by servers.”
Recent analysis revealed that by 2020 information passed around global networks would reach a walloping 40 Zettabytes, which is equivalent to 57 times the number of sand grains found on all the beaches of Earth. To manage and process that much information, data centers would be in need of a huge amount of energy. Another estimate found that the digital universe uses about 10 percent of the world’s total electricity.
Data centers will be able to realize minimized power costs and enhance their energy efficiency by deploying these new Cleantech servers. The new servers can bring down server power, cooling, space, weight, water and carbon footprints by up to 80 percent.
These energy consumption numbers would naturally lead to a position where consumers would support data centers that emphasize more power savings along with performance, and with Servergy’s small, fast, efficient, cool, quiet and lightweight servers, a company could better manage the rising demands of data center operators globally.
Mapp added, “At Servergy, we believe that the ‘new normal’ within data centers globally will be a focus on energy efficiency, especially for ‘new normal’ I/O intensive workloads, such as cloud, caching and storage applications. It will start with the lowest common denominator within the data center – servers.”The initial product release in the new Servergy Cleantech Server line is the CTS (News - Alert)-1000 server, a hyper-efficient PowerLinux server offering high I/O built on the company’s patented architecture. Servergy and its partner IBM are the only providers that offer Linux-on-Power servers.

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]
