Could A Data Center Analysis Save You $70 Million?
When it comes to data infrastructure planning, building and maintaining, insisting on trying to see the forest through trees can be extraordinarily expensive. As admirable as it is to lean solely on the expertise of your internal team, having a third-party advisor who can provide objective and highly experienced input can be absolutely game changing.
The Simple (And Industry Leading) Solution To Data Center Power Redundancy
We do not live in a cordless world yet and we won’t anytime soon. Unfortunately, it’s these same cords that can bring the world down. Or at least your data center. Data centers require immense amounts of power and without a steady, uninterrupted stream flowing to them, catastrophic failure is always looming.
Innovative Data Center Interconnects Provide A High-Speed Path To Extreme Density
The supreme goal of data center infrastructure products is to be able to combine complexity in functionality with simplicity in installation and operation. The myth that all data is flying through the clouds is more prevalent than ever thanks to the omnipresent term of cloud computing. Yet, data center deployers and operators know the world is more hard-wired than ever and being able to connect these cables in a sophisticated and simple fashion is the design engineer’s Holy Grail.
Amping Up Distribution Of Power To Data Centers With A Customized Approach
Power is everything when it comes to data centers. Without it, you’re left with lifeless plastic and precious metals. The tremendous challenge is that the requirements for power provision are increasing at hyper warp speeds. This is especially true in high density applications like hyperscale facilities.
Why Data Centers Are Replacing Steel And Concrete Construction With Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP)
Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) has long been a material of choice for aerospace applications. Now it’s becoming essential to efficient data center design. FRP is a composite fiber that offers the strength of steel and concrete yet weighs as much as 80% lighter allowing for rapid installation with a fraction of the labor costs. “Essentially it’s less people and less gear for installation,” said Brian Stamper, who is the Chief Revenue Officer of Advantic. “You might utilize a crane if the structure is going on a rooftop, but otherwise installation can almost always be done by hand.” Steel structures typically require a much higher level of technical skill to install as they often need...
Propelling Your Data Center Into The Future With Innovative Modular Connectivity
As the expansion of data infrastructure capability and capacity accelerates exponentially, the ability to shift on the fly becomes a competitive necessity for organizations.
Maximum Data Center Performance? TIA-942 Certification Might Just Be The Answer
The role of data centers in the everyday operations of organizations is growing exponentially. So too is the need for absolutely optimum performance.
Are Your Servers Getting Hacked Through The Airwaves? Here Is How To Protect Your Data
It’s a rare day in the data infrastructure industry when you’re not hearing about yet another sophisticated strategy developed by hackers to break into critical systems.
Protecting Your Data Centers From Earthquakes With ISO-Base Technology
In business today, it can sometimes be good to shake things up a bit. But not when it comes to your data centers. One big earthquake could essentially shake a company off its foundations.
Feel The Need For Speed? Try Field Customization Of Data Center Cages
Time is money. And, when it comes to data center builds, we’re talking a lot of money. For colocation centers that are onboarding new tenants, every extra day it takes for a new renter to be fully moved in usually results in a highly painful loss of revenue. The tenants feel the pain as well. These delays can negatively impact their expansion requirements, slow down new product releases, restrict their scalability, and create an unwelcome traffic jam of internal project delays. When it comes to data centers, time isn’t just money, it’s solid gold! For multi-tenant facilities, one of the greatest logjams is waiting on factory-built cages to be available and shipped. This is why so many...
