White Paper: Panduit
Data centers are the nerve center of successful business operations, resulting in surging demand for processing power, work load virtualization, and consolidation combined with pressure to reduce operating expenses (OpEx) and improve asset utilization.
Most modern energy-efficient data centers deploy some kind of containment system— reducing the overall cooling energy cost by preventing or reducing the mixing of cold and hot air streams. Panduit has run several tests focusing on the comparison of common cold air containment and hot air containment techniques: Cold Aisle Containment (CAC), Hot Aisle Containment (HAC), and Vertical Exhaust Duct (VED) or Chimney with the goal to reduce energy consumption in the data centers.
What is the importance of maintaining data center cooling energy efficiency? What is the importance of sealing cabinets? What are the selection criteria for Standard Hot Aisle / Cold Aisle (HA/CA) vs. VED vs. CAC?
What are the types of air containment systems?
How to determine ideal data center layout using economic analysis and CFD analysis?
How to determine efficiency of cooling system with dry cooler, mechanical chiller and cooling tower?
What are the opportunities in air containment systems for data centers?
“Do more with less” has become the technological mantra, for data centres that have grown both in capacity and capabilities. Two crucial technologies that have surfaced and contributed improvements in both storage and physical-layer devices are Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and 10GBASE-T. The use of the two technologies together enhances the modern data centers as it can provide storage, server connectivity, and networking in ways that was not feasible with traditional data center designs. Ethernet technology is continuing to advance with new physical attributes that provide more options for lowering the cost of reliable storage connectivity in the data centers. Move ahead and read the following whitepaper that will address all your queries, including: How does FCoE & 10GBASE-T enhance storage and physical-layer devices? How is FCoE & 10GBASE-T different from traditional LAN and SAN? Is the advancement with server virtualization cost effective for your business?
The technological platforms such as cloud, big data, telecom industry, and social media are engaging towards better customer service, workforce collaboration, and cost efficient means. It is essential to address the maximizing of IT infrastructure and the efficiency of physical data centre in order to intelligently monitor the availability of resources. The Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) system allows for an intelligent edge that can spell the difference between success and failure to an organization. Organization that spends efficiently on its resources always gains a competitive edge to its competitors. Find out more about the DCIM systems and enhance your business productivity through the White paper below to address your concerns: Does my data center perform to the optimum levels of efficiency? How will DCIM systems bring innovation and competitive edge to my organization? Is the space utilization and connectivity tracking of the data center equipment getting hampered?
