As data centers address more expansive and unique challenges, their power distribution equipment must meet those performance needs. Server cabinets and racks, even individual server units, need to be designed for maximum adaptability to the ever-changing power consumption requirements of their unique and demanding environments.
In this industry brief, we discuss the IoT, its relationship to Smart Cities and 5G wireless, and how IoT, Smart Cities, and 5G will require remotely managed intelligent power to deliver on the promises of better information and control, resulting in improved lifestyles and greater efficiency.
In this white paper, we discuss a new flexible solution for extending the life of your IT infrastructure. The solution can deliver a cost-effective means of remotely monitoring and managing a diversity of remote, unstaffed facilities by adding a layer of intelligence enabled by a wide variety of sensors.
Five Ways Remote Access Technology Improves Business Continuity, Simplifies IT Management, and Reduces Costs.
The following white paper will detail the five key applications of serial console servers, explain the benefits of each and share real-world use cases on how organizations of all sizes can take advantage of the technology.
In smart cities, remotely managed power distribution provides a means of reducing power consumption, resetting disparate hardware systems, and providing localized environmental monitoring for both the control systems and the networking hardware that make a city “smart.” This paper explores the critical role intelligent power distribution plays in making “smart” happen.
Building and operating an enterprise data center (“flying solo”) can be a daunting task that is capital intensive. Being a tenant at a colocation provider can take a lot of burden off the corporate facilities team and reduce CAPEX, yet leave the IT side of the house bearing the brunt of the responsibility for maintaining uptime of critical infrastructure while concurrently minimizing OPEX.

The following white paper will address how power monitoring solutions can be effectively used to meet the aforementioned demands, while simultaneously delivering an IT environment that is able to achieve evolving business, usage, regulatory, and financial goals.
In this whitepaper, we will examine the importance of data center environmental monitoring, explore the variety of monitoring strategies, and how they complement intelligent power monitoring solutions. From there, we’ll discuss how to instrument your data center with these tools and provide some real-world use cases.
Blockchain is a promising technology for many markets. But like all digital technology initiatives, blockchain isn’t just about software. It’s also about hardware. To pilot your blockchain initiatives appropriately, you must provision your infrastructure resources to both support those initial pilots and lay the foundation to perform at scale if, and when those pilots lead to live, competitively critical production implementations. This whitepaper examines the implications of blockchain for your data center infrastructure.
It used to be sufficient to regulate access to the data center as a whole, as long as you could reasonably ensure that no unauthorized personnel had access to your sensitive digital infrastructure. However, times are certainly changing. Escalating regulatory requirements across industries now require that sensitive systems and data be subject to their own specific protections. As a data center manager, you must track and monitor their access to specific sensitive systems and ensure they have the correct rights to a particular area. With that being said, in order to fulfill your rack-level compliance requirements with the utmost confidence and efficiency, you need to make some smart decisions for both the near and long term. This white paper outlines how you can accomplish this with limited resources.
