Is Your Data Center Running Out of Space and Power? Optimize It!

data-center-power-switch

The lifecycles of data centers are getting shorter and shorter. The needs of today’s data centers are much more complex than they were 25-or even five-years ago. As a result, data centers are increasingly challenged to support high density environments often running at full capacity, frequently running out of space and power. Although technology is

What is an iBootBar Power Manager?

Multi-Outlet, Multi-User Remote Reboot with outlet grouping for simultaneous switching! The Dataprobe iBootBar allows you to control each outlet independently from Web, Telnet, SNMP. Access the network plus out-of-band control via serial port and internal modem with both data and DTMF tone dial control. Wherever you are, you are in complete control. iBootBar is available

Containment Considerations

containment considerations

Each unique server room will require a unique Aisle Containment solution. Some environments will benefit more from hot aisle containment, while others may be limited to cold aisle containment due to physical constraints. Most important, despite what the experts say, improperly implemented containment can be as bad or worse than no containment at all. Availability

Calculate your PUE with 42U

Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and its reciprocal Data Center infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE) are widely accepted benchmarking standards proposed by the Green Grid to help IT Professionals determine how energy efficient data centers are, and to monitor the impact of their efficiency efforts. When used correctly, these benchmarks can be a useful and essential tool for

The PUE Metric

PUE Measurement Levels

What is PUE? PUE (power usage effectiveness) is a measure of how efficiently a data center uses energy and how much is being used by the equipment. It is the ratio of total facilities energy (UPS systems, switchgear, generators, equipment, etc.) to IT equipment energy (storage, network equipment, KVM switches, monitors, etc.). Data center power

What is an NIAP Certified KVM Switch? The NIAP (National Information Assurance Partnership), a partnership between the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and the NSA (National Security Agency) is responsible for U.S. implementation of the Common Criteria. You can basically think of the NIAP as the overseer of Common Criteria evaluations, making sure

Server Rack Strategies

Hot Aisle / Cold Aisle Server Rack Configuration

Server Rack Strategies for Energy Efficient Data Centers Many data centers historically didn’t put much more thought into their deployment of server racks beyond basic functionality, air flow, and the upfront costs of the rack itself. These days, the widespread adoption of hi-density applications are causing major hot spot concerns and capacity issues. These factors,

Console Server Usage Examples

What are Console Servers? Console servers (also called RS232 aggregators, terminal servers, or secure console servers) provide out-of-band management for switches, routers, and other command-line controlled devices through a secure shell or SSL browser session. Remote console and console server management products are some of the industry’s most intuitive solutions for managing command-line devices. These
