Server Technology to Present at Data Center World 2014
Even as data center resource consumption approaches critical levels, executives everywhere are looking for ways to slash costs without sacrificing uptime or reliability. It’s a conundrum vexing the business as a whole, but there are answers available.
As such, data center power consumption and monitoring will be one of the most important issues at this year’s AFCOM’S Data Center World 2014. The event takes place April 28 through May 2, at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
Attendees will find the most extensive, end-user driven educational program available anywhere in the industry, either as a broad overview of topics or a deep dive into a specific areas of interest, with topics covering data center management, facilities management, emerging technologies, disaster recovery, and colocation.
Each educational session at the show is designed to have an immediate impact in any company’s data center and is carefully screened to ensure a vendor-neutral environment. No other conference provides the Data Center World level of educational quality.
Attendees at this year’s Data Center World are encouraged to stop by Booth 706 to visit with Server Technology (News - Alert), providers of advanced data center monitoring and distribution solutions. Server Tech offers a full spectrum of options for businesses of all sizes, such as outlet and environmental monitoring, branch circuit protection and input-current monitoring.
At the show itself, Server Technology Director of Engineering and Product Management Travis Irons will join Regional Sales Manager Mark Hoffert for a detailed Product Information Session of power solutions and strategies.
The presentation, titled “Understanding High Power Density and Rack PDU Solutions,” will feature Server Technology’s High Density PDU, which was recently nominated by DCS as “product of the year.” The presentation takes place the second day of the show, on Tuesday, April 29, from 3-4 p.m. in the Barbados A&B rooms.

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]
